Yorkshire-based residential estate and lettings agent Applegate Properties has won both gold and silver accolades, at a prestigious industry awards ceremony.
The Negotiator Awards – the UK’s leading programme for estate and lettings specialists – were established in 2008, and since then have grown in stature to now be acknowledged as the most recognised awards scheme for the residential property industry.
With 30 categories in total, 2017 proved to be the largest year yet for the presentation, as over 750 directors, senior managers and business owners attended the event.
Applegate Properties was shortlisted in three categories – Yorkshire and the Humber Agency of the Year, Small Lettings Agency of the Year and Small Estate Agency of the Year – each of them celebrating businesses with 1-3 branches, that are prominent stand out within their town.
Amy Wray, Applegate’s managing director attended the London ceremony alongside, sales advisor Chloe Byrne and lettings advisor Laura-Anne.
Held at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, the event was hosted by Jimmy Carr who presented Applegate with a gold accolade for the Yorkshire and the Humber Agency of the Year, and silver for the Small Lettings Agency of the Year.
Amy said: “With our three previous years of victory at the awards – winning bronze in 2014 and 2015 and then silver in 2016 for the Yorkshire and the Humber Agency of the Year – myself and the team were and still are absolutely elated to have been shortlisted again for such a prestigious award.
“But the 2017 event was something else. The night itself was lots of fun and we were extremely shocked to receive both gold and silver, as we were up against such strong competition. We have worked hard to offer a completely different estate agency experience, so it was extremely humbling to have this acknowledged in such a prestigious arena!”
Applegate Properties was founded in 2010 and has built an exceptional reputation for being the fastest growing property experts in the Huddersfield and Holmfirth area. Now a team of 10, this latest accomplishment has helped to recognise and solidify their continued success.
