Just like buses...you wait ages for one then three come along at the same time!
Following our successes in the Weston College Business Awards 2015, where we were named winners in six categories and in The South West Business Leaders awards 2015 and Debbie was named South West Businesswoman of the Year, we are delighted to announce a further ‘feather in our cap’...this time in the main awards for the estate agency industry, The Negotiator Awards 2015.
At a star studded awards ceremony in London’s Park Lane, hosted by Alistair McGowan, 800 of the finest estate agents in the United Kingdom battled to be recognised as the industry leaders and Debbie Fortune Estate Agents were winners in two of the award categories during the evening.
Our first success was in the COMMUNITY CHAMPION OF THE YEAR AWARD, where we reached the shortlist of finalists but were pipped at the post for the main award. This award celebrates corporate and social responsibility in the community, and Debbie said “We are delighted that our efforts to support not only our local area and community but more national events, like Children in Need for example, were recognised by the judges.”
The main success of the evening was in the regional awards where we were named
SOUTH WEST ESTATE AGENCY OF THE YEAR 2015
This is no mean feat as Debbie and her team were in competition against estate agency firms of all sizes in an area comprising Gloucestershire, Somerset, Bristol and Bath, Dorset, Wiltshire, Devon and Cornwall.
Debbie said “Much of our success comes down to the strength and experience of our teams at both offices ...our drive and enthusiasm ...and the loyal support of our clients, customers and professional contacts...many of whom recommend us widely in the area and have done for years.”
She added “We were also really pleased with the judges’ comments which included: “This agency shows a great commitment to apprenticeships and impressive support for the local community – excellent figures too!’
