Galley Properties, Doncaster Estate and Letting Agents based on Balby Road, are celebrating after being shortlisted for multiple awards at the prestigious Negotiator Awards. Often described as the top property awards in the UK or the Oscars for the property industry, the Negotiator Awards are judged by leaders and experts in the residential property sector. To be shortlisted in one of the thirty categories is a huge honour however Galley Properties have excelled to become just one of a few UK agents to be recognised in three or more categories. That makes them the best performing agent in Doncaster.
The 2017 entry list was, once again, the biggest in the history of the Awards which continues to grow in stature and importance with each year and is already well-established as the most important awards programme for the UK residential property industry. The team from the Doncaster agent will be joining the other 120 agents, auction houses and property companies shortlisted at the award presentation in London. Several other suppliers will also be in attendance which makes for a great mix of the best people working within the property industry. Winners and runners up will be announced at a glamorous gala dinner hosted by TV presenter, star and comedian Jimmy Carr at the five-star London Hilton on Park Lane on the 31st October.
This is the third consecutive year that Galley Properties have performed well at the Negotiator Awards and last year saw them crowned Yorkshire and The Humber Agency of the Year, a category they have been shortlisted for again. As well as the Yorkshire category they have also been shortlisted for the Best Marketing Campaign of the Year and as the Best Small Lettings Agency of the Year (1-3 branches).
The team at Galley properties are excited to be nominated for yet more awards this year and they see this as fabulous recognition of all the hard work and extra effort they put in. Despite the ups and downs of the property market since the recession, the Doncaster based Estate and Letting Agent has continued to grow a strong and stable business. Recently their team has expanded to employ two new members of staff and they have diversified their offering to include commercial properties as well as traditional sales and lettings. Their award winning people focused approach with an emphasis on easy to understand information, open and honest appraisals, fair fee structure and commitment to customer service has been key to gaining these nominations.
Teresa Galley, Director of Galley Properties comments:
“We are excited and delighted to be shortlisted for three more awards this year. This is also the third year in a row we have been recognised which shows we continue to deliver for our customers year after year. So many well regarded companies are part of these awards, it really does highlight the people who go above and beyond within the property industry. I am proud that the team here at Galley Properties is up there with the best in the UK, it shows that our hard work is really paying off. Everyone in the office has worked so hard over the past few years and I see this as a reward for a brilliant team effort.”
Last year Galley Properties were shortlisted for three awards and took home the gold for ‘Yorkshire and The Humber Agency of the Year’. The previous year they were shortlisted in two categories and they won the bronze award for ‘Best Marketing Campaign of the Year’. This year they have been shortlisted yet again for best in Yorkshire and also their marketing prowess. Where Galley Properties stand out from the crowd is that they employ marketing professionals to really deliver results for customers.
Stewart Craven, Marketing Manager adds:
“I am extremely proud of the effort we put into getting marketing right for our customers. Our campaigns continue to be recognised at not just at the Negotiator Awards but also at some of the UKs other prestigious award shows. As well as these fabulous campaigns we go above the norm when it comes to marketing and presenting properties for our customers. We don’t believe in average and we always present properties at their very best. I feel it is for this reason that year after year Zoopla and Rightmove statistics show we sell and rent out properties significantly faster than the Doncaster average and also achieve prices closer to the asking price. The results we are achieving are beyond brilliant which is great for customers.”
This year is the first time Galley Properties have been recognised within the specific lettings category. They have a proven track record over the past decade of providing excellent service and results of landlords.
James Hambrey, Senior Property Manager says:
“The whole lettings team just simply loves what they do. We all work hard every single day for hundreds of Landlords and Tenants with properties throughout Doncaster. To be up for an award for doing the job we love is simply the icing on the cake. I can’t wait to see the result, a win would be great, but just to be the only lettings team in Doncaster to be shortlisted already makes us feel like winners.”
Everyone is counting down until the 31st October to see if the agency can build on previous year’s successes and bring home yet another award, fingers crossed.
