College and County have been have been honoured at the prestigious Estate & Letting Agent Awards 2010
The Oxford based agency was recognised for its excellent customer service as voted for by their clients during the course of 2009.
The award was announced by Phil Spencer, presenter of Channel 4’s Location, Location property programme at a lavish luncheon & ceremony in Mayfair, London attended by 450 of the UK’s top estate and letting agents.
Phil Spencer said “By entering the awards agents have put their reputation on the line, they’ve been brave, they’ve done what others are afraid to do. They’ve said to their customers and their competitors – that they believe in providing the best possible service and they want to prove it. They’ve been recognised for their bravery and all that hard work involved to get to the final shortlist.”
The results of the competition were determined by research carried out amongst customers who are asked a series of questions about the service they have received from their agent. Over 19,000 votes were received making the awards the most important and valuable in the industry.
Mark Crampton Smith, senior Partner at College and County, sent a message of thanks to clients first thing on a fragile Friday morning; “I am so proud of the team,” he said “when we were shortlisted we were pleased, but to be voted the best letting agent in the Southern Region, is true recognition that we really are delivering the quality of service that we strive for.”
The awards are sponsored by HomeLet and Rayner Recruitment. John Boyle, Managing Director at HomeLet said “‘I’d like to congratulate the winners and all the businesses that were shortlisted. It’s a real honour for everyone who has been involved with the awards not just because of the fierce competition, but because the awards were judged by customers who’ve experienced their service first hand. I’m delighted that HomeLet have had the opportunity to be associated with the awards, which have once again proven to be a real highlight for the industry.’
