Galley Properties, one of the leading Doncaster Estate and Letting agents, are celebrating after being crowned the winner of ‘Best Small Agency’ at this year’s Yorkshire Residential Property Awards.
The team at the independent agency are celebrating after scooping the top prize in this hard fought category. The awards explains that, ‘this award recognises the residential agency that has demonstrated an outstanding sales and lettings record supported by unrivalled service and market reach.
The judges looked for a proven market knowledge, innovation and customer service.’ The event took place on Thursday, 11th October at Bowcliffe Hall, Bramham and was attended by around 800 professionals from across the Yorkshire residential property sector.
Submissions were judged by a team of 11 leading property professionals, some of whom have built some of the most recognisable property businesses in Yorkshire.
On the night the judges said: “Galley Properties are a successful independent estate agent passionate about working in Yorkshire. Our judges describe them as an ethical company working in a challenging environment. They are a young company with sustained growth.”
Teresa Galley, Director of Galley Properties says: “It is a great honour to be crowned best small agent in Yorkshire. We were pleased with the amazing feedback we received about all the hard work the team at Galley Properties puts in. The scale of this event really showed how vibrant the property sector is in Yorkshire and we were more than happy to be involved in this special night. On top of that the support received for this amazing charity was outstanding.
Galley Properties attribute their success at the awards and within the Yorkshire region to the hard work they put into both the sales and lettings departments as well as a strong focus on property marketing and customer service. Within the next few months they are due to attend a further two award ceremonies where they have been shortlisted for a further four awards. The next one will be the property marketing awards where their outstanding marketing skills have been highlighted. Towards the end of the year they will also attend the Negotiator Awards where they are up for three prizes including best single branch sales, best single branch lettings and another best in Yorkshire award.
The awards were organised by the children’s charity Variety who work to improve the lives of children and young people throughout the UK who are sick, disabled or disadvantaged. They provide coaches and bespoke wheelchairs, specialist, sensory and recreational equipment for use in the home, school, children’s hospitals and youth centres and creates memorable experiences through “Variety Great Days Out”. The event raised an impressive £110,300 on the night for this very worthy cause.
Some of the amazing projects by Variety were showcased on the night and Galley Properties were more than happy to throw their support and donations behind this amazing charity. Last year Variety provided wheelchairs, coaches and grants for specialist equipment. Each year they take tens of thousands of children on great days out through their ‘Great Days Out’ Programme. They help fund children’s hospitals and hospices, creating environments that are more welcoming and reassuring. Children cared for at home are given specialist equipment to alleviate the symptoms of chronic conditions, improve their everyday care and help reduce stress for both children and parents. Variety also provide youth clubs funding for equipment, enabling them to offer more facilities, attracting vulnerable young people and keeping them off the street.
Stewart Craven, marketing manager at Galley Properties adds: “It really was a wonderful night and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was fabulous to win this prestigious award and I’m sure the whole team at Galley will be pleased that their hard work has been recognised. Winning any award is a real team effort at our estate agency. This is now the third award we have won in various award ceremonies for a best in Yorkshire category. It was also great to see the huge fundraising response for this wonderful charity. To raise over £100,000 on one night is simply amazing. Well done to the team for our win and well done to the charity for this amazing event. I’m looking forward to attending next year.”
