The esteemed event, that celebrates the very best in estate agency, took place at The Lancaster Hotel on Friday, 5th December and was sponsored by The Times and The Sunday Times.

The Estate Agency of the Year Awards is the longest running and most highly regarded awards event in the estate agency industry. According to the Judges Report, since Black Brick’s inception in 2007, it has gone from strength to strength. Managing Partner, Camilla Dell is recognised for her hands on approach, attitude, knowledge and enthusiasm and is commended for the way in which it feeds the rest of the team. The report said: “Black Brick offers an impressive range of services to its clients that have been developed organically to meet their requirements, resulting in clients feeling confident that they are receiving a fully managed, end-to-end service. Black Brick’s service doesn’t end on completion either; once a transaction has completed, the team continues to look after the client via a dedicated concierge service. Black Brick’s relationship with agents is excellent, and built on a strong foundation, Black Brick is a truly professional agency.”

The judging of the awards is chaired by The Property Ombudsman and has the backing of the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) and National Federation of Property Professionals (NFOPP). The Judges comprise highly experienced property professionals including leading agents together with other industry experts and specialists all of whom have the experience of seeing many different agencies over many years and hence have the ability to contrast and compare one agency with another.

Camilla Dell, Managing Partner comments: “We are thrilled to have picked up gold in the ‘Best Buying Agent’ category. To have been recognised at such a prestigious event just proves our commitment to our clients and demonstrates how hard the team have worked to make Black Brick a success.”
