The team at the independent agency are celebrating after scooping Gold in the category of ‘Yorkshire & The Humber Agency of the Year’. The hard fought category, judged by top property industry experts, saw more agents make the shortlist than any other region outside of London which highlights the strength of the property market in Yorkshire.
Galley Properties were one of only a handful of agents nationwide and the only agent in South Yorkshire to secure three or more nominations and taking the crown for best in Yorkshire is seen as an outstanding achievement. The judges praised them for their hard work within the region and the way their marketing stands out from the crowd. The judges on the night commented that Galley Properties had “a fresh approach and attitude along with a story of excellent growth.”
On top of the gold prize at the Negotiator Awards, Galley properties were also shortlisted in the categories of ‘Small Estate Agency of the Year‘ and for the second year running ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’. Just twelve months ago this independent estate and letting agent took home the bronze for marketing which means this year’s success marks a second winning year for the Doncaster-based agency.
A great night was had by all at the ceremony, hosted by Mock the Week star and comedian Ed Byrne, at the glamorous London Hilton on Park Lane on the 1st of November. The Negotiator Awards are often described as the Oscars of the property industry and the night itself was attended by a multitude of winners, nominees, and some of the biggest names in the property market from all over the United Kingdom.
Galley Properties attribute their success at the awards and within the Yorkshire region to the hard work they put into both property marketing and customer service. Making the shortlist for marketing yet again shows that their work really is some of the best in the UK, just last month they were also the only estate agent in all of the UK to be shortlisted for an award at the Northern Marketing Awards. In 2015 they were also the only estate agent in the UK to be shortlisted at the very prestigious Property Marketing Awards. Their customer service hasn’t gone unnoticed either, last December they scooped the Gold award for outstanding customer service from the independently verified review site RaterAgent and are on track to retaining the title this year.
Teresa Galley, Director of Galley Properties says: “It is a great honour to be crowned best in Yorkshire and the Humber at the Negotiator Awards. The property market within our region is vibrant and there are lots of great agents out there, but to be crowned the best really is a great achievement. I see this award as recognition for all the hard work everyone at our office has put in, it has been a real team effort. This year has been outstanding and we have been recognised at more awards than ever before and going forward we will continue to deliver our award winning service for all our customers. Congratulations team!”
Stewart, Marketing Manager at Galley Properties comments: “Last year we won a bronze award and it is amazing that we have done even better to secure a gold this time around. Galley Properties is a great place to work and the team here are outstanding, it is down to them that we won. The calibre of the companies in the three categories we were shortlisted for was huge. Some of the biggest names in the property industry were at the awards and this shows that the Negotiator Awards attracts the best of the best. We have some exciting developments in the pipeline and will be looking to build on this success to deliver even more for our customers next year.”
