We are thrilled to have taken home gold again in the “Best Buying Agent” category at the Estate Agency of the Year Awards 2015. The esteemed event, that celebrates the very best in estate agency, took place at The Lancaster Hotel on Friday, 4th 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, Black Brick is an independently run business based out of Mayfair that employs a salaried team based from their offices rather than commission-only, home based search agents. The panel was particularly impressed with the range of services offered beyond a house purchase including a vacant care service, which ensures that a property is regularly checked, post collected and satisfies the vendor’s insurance especially if the property is empty for months at a time. In addition the Concierge package is offered as a complimentary service where the team at Black Brick can arrange for a property to be prepared before the owners return from overseas, including having fresh food waiting for them. They have a high regard for the estate agents they work with to acquire properties for clients, and this goes as far as giving the agents the opportunity to fi nd tenants for properties if needed, with the ongoing management then handled by Black Brick. It boasts an impressive list of case studies and testimonials from clients and the passion and eff ort that the team put into helping their clients find the perfect property is very evident.
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 delighted to have picked up gold again 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.”
