Dawsons has been named winner of the silver award for Wales Lettings Agency of the Year at The Lettings Agency of the Year Awards 2014.
Run in association with The Sunday Times and The Times and sponsored by Zoopla Property Group, the Dawsons team joined 500 other leading lettings agents in London to attend the star-studded ceremony.
Held at The Lancaster London Hotel overlooking Hyde Park, the ceremony saw best-selling international author, inspirational speaker, presenter and charity campaigner Katie Piper announce the winners of the coveted awards. Renowned journalist, author and newsreader Penny Smith also acted as compere.
Dawsons, winner of the silver award for Wales Lettings Agency of the Year, was delighted to receive the accolade. Ricky Purdy, Residential Lettings Director, added: “This award is a great achievement for Dawsons and all staff within the lettings department. This year’s competition was greater than ever with the panel of industry experts paying tribute to all winners being very much at the top of our industry.”
The awards ceremony marked the end of a rigorous and thorough judging process. A panel of 21 industry experts assessed initial entry submissions before conducting an extensive review of the entrants, which included over 12,000 minutes of telephone interviews and mystery shopping exercises. This process was overseen by The Property Ombudsman, Christopher Hamer.
Now running for over 10 years, these awards have become widely recognised as the most prestigious and difficult to win. The awards welcomed more entrants than ever before, nearly 6,000 offices were represented this year, but only the very best were crowned as winners.
“We have a wealth of experienced and knowledgeable staff within Dawsons that are deserving of this accolade and recognition. This award recognises their great efforts over the past 12 months,” concluded Ricky.
