Winner of Best Overall Agent in the UK!

Our night at the Landlord and Lettings Awards 2016

Picture this: it’s the night of the 29th November. Our A-Team are all dolled up and ready for a glitzy night of fun and glamour at the Landlord and Lettings Awards 2016. The venue is packed to the nines with various big-wigs and cool-cats of the property world, all joined together for one of hell of a jam-packed evening.

If you follow us on our social channels, (if you don’t, you can do so herehere and here) you may have already seen that we were nominated for Letting Agent of the Year and were up against some tough competition.

We’ve had our fair share of award-wins already this year, which you can read about here, and we knew we’d be incredibly lucky to scoop yet another award – but we did! We are honoured to have bagged the award for Best Overall Agent in the UK, by some very esteemed judges including:

-          Alan Ward, Chairman – Residential Landlords Association

-          David Cox, Managing Director – Association of Residential Letting Agents

-          Carolyn Uphill, Chairman – National Landlords Association

-          Peter Littlewood, Chairman, Southern Landlords Association

That’s right – there’s another shiny trophy for our award cabinet, and we celebrated in sufficient style.

Ged McPartlin, Sales Director at Ascend Properties commented:

 “We are absolutely thrilled to win the award for Best Overall Agent in the UK. The competition was tough, so this accolade really is testament to the hard work and commitment of everyone at Ascend. This is the icing on the cake for us this year, as it joins the five regional awards we’ve recently won, including Best Overall Agent in Manchester and Best Letting Agent in Manchester.” 

He continued: “Our success isn’t driven by being complacent, it’s driven by a drive and determination to deliver a service that we would want to receive ourselves. We’re in a competitive market and savvy clients now expect more from their estate, letting and management agent; we like to think we’ve found that balance and are delivering a service nothing short of first class.  It’s been a cracking year for our sector and we’re looking forward to seeing what 2017 has in store for us.”

Once again, we want to say a massive thanks to everyone who’s supported us through the last 12 months - we couldn’t do it without you!

If you’re thinking of starting the new year with a new property or a new agent, why not give us a call? We’d love to chat to you on 0161 637 8336.
