Sawdye & Harris Win Top Industry Award for Third Consecutive Year at the ‘Property Oscars’

Local estate agent, Sawdye & Harris, has added another property accolade to its trophy cabinet. For the third consecutive year, the firm has received the Gold award for ‘Best South West Estate Agency of the Year - small agency,’ at the Estate Agency of the Year Awards 2016. In association with The Times and The Sunday Times, the award marks the end of an incredible year for Sawdye & Harris, who have recently opened a new office in Ashburton, rebranded and launched a new website.

Over the years, Sawdye & Harris has grown from strength to strength. Providing clients with a personal, traditional service combined with a tailored marketing approach that ensures nationwide coverage of their properties, the firm has surpassed well established south west agencies with their passionate approach to the industry, their clients and each other.

This ethos was once again acknowledged at this year’s highly anticipated awards event, with judges commending the firm in particular for their innovative approach to customer excellence. “They really understand people and what drives them during the moving process,” said the Judges. “Every client is treated as an individual and their preferences are always taken in account… This tailoring simply enhances the high levels of consistency in their service delivery…. It is evident that they are motivated by the positive customer feedback they receive.”

Director of Sawdye & Harris, Katie Griffin, was in attendance to collect the impressive accolade and comented; “We are so proud to be collecting this award for the third year in a row at what is effectively the Oscars of the property world. In an industry which is often tarred by rogue agents, awards like this help bring confidence to buyers, sellers and landlords when they are trying to find a trustworthy estate agent to use. I would like to thank all of my team for their hard work and dedication at continuously improving and developing our communications, both internally as well as to our clients. To have this acknowledged by the likes of the Property Ombudsman and the Judges once again is a true honour – what an excellent way to end the year!”

The Estate Agency of the Year awards is sponsored by Zoopla and is the longest running and most highly regarded awards event in the estate agency industry. The occasion recognises standout quality to ensure best practice and customer excellence.
Peter Knight, Chairman of Estate Agency Events commented; “Everyone who entered was running a good business with a team who are trying their best to improve our industry’s reputation and standards… You are one of the many UK agents providing a fantastic, transparent service to the consumer.”
