The 15th April this year, saw the brightest and best estate and letting agents in the UK being honoured and acknowledged for great service at the ESTAS awards 2016.

Now in its 13th year, the ESTAS awards’ prestige lies in the fact that the awards are based on responses from clients – something they aren’t likely to take the time to do unless they are delighted with the service. With this in mind, a record 30,000 customer questionnaires were completed this year making the categories more competitive than ever. The ESTAS awards founder Simon Brown notes that just for an agency to take part shows its commitment to its customers and that, “To be short listed is a great achievement in itself.”

Friday’s ceremony was hosted by property expert (and one half of beloved TV duo Kirsty and Phil) Phil Spencer. He made the important point that letting or buying a property can be an incredibly stressful event so any advice, help and support that agents and related property services can give at this time will always be gratefully received. Conversely, any poor service reflects badly on the entire profession so “It’s crucial everyone provides the high quality service the customer expects and deserves,” he said.

Absolutely was the proud sponsor of the London category awards for letting agents (as voted for by tenants): for London East, base property specialists won gold and Landmark Estates won silver; for London South West, First Union Battersea won gold and Patrick Henry won silver; and for London West, Abacus Estates of Kensal Rise won gold.

In the London letting agents rated by landlords category, for London East, base property specialists won gold and Knight Bishop of Hackney won silver; for London North, Anthony Pepe of Highbury won gold and Anthony Pepe of Harringay won silver; for London South West, Chamberland Residential won gold and First Union Battersea won silver; and for London West, Thorgills Ealing Lettings won gold and Chelsea Square of West Hampstead won silver.

In the category of estate agent of the year, for London East, Kings Group of Walthamstow won gold and Kings Group of Chingford won silver; for London North, Kings Group of Edmonton won gold and Bairstow Eves of Muswell Hill won silver; and for London South West, Patrick Henry won gold and First Union Battersea won silver.

In the spirit of celebration that characterised the whole evening, Absolutely would like to extend its congratulations to all of the winners and short-listed agents that have truly raised the bar for service excellence. Next year’s ESTAS has a tough act to follow and Absolutely looks forward to supporting this key event in the property calendar once again.
