Addressing the audience he added: ‘If you make it up on stage today you can leave in the knowledge that you’ve achieved the highest accolade our industry can offer.’
Estate and letting agents were recognised in 23 regions around the UK.
National Grand Prix Awards were also announced for the Best Single Agent Office in sales and lettings.
Simon Brown, founder of The ESTAS said: ‘Like it or not, we live in a world where the consumer decision-making process is influenced more and more by customer reviews so The ESTAS provides a kitemark of excellent service for any property professional involved in the home-moving process.’
Mark Goddard, managing director of ZPG’s property division said: ‘We have had a long-term relationship with the ESTAS and we are delighted to have committed to the ESTAS again going forward.
‘ZPG’s objectives are precisely aligned with those of the ESTAS, which are to help agents across the UK market themselves efficiently and help them win business.
‘Many congratulations to all of this year’s winners and runners up who have been recognised for the excellent standard of customer service they delivered throughout the year.’
Nigel Painter, manager of Morris Dibben said ‘We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised at this year’s ESTAS.
‘It means so much to us as we know it’s our customers who have judged our performance. We take our levels of customer service very seriously because we know clients have a choice.’
