Reeds Rains is celebrating silver medal success in the National Estate Agency of the Year category at the Estate Agency of the Year Awards 2014 despite tough competition from some of the leading names in the market.

The ESTAS, sponsored by The Sunday Times and The Times, are some of the most sought after awards in the estate agency industry. To be acknowledged as an award winner is seen as a major triumph – and reflects the professional services available for Reeds Rains customers!

Now in its 12th year as a dedicated competition, these awards have become recognised by many as the most prestigious and difficult to win.

With more entrants than ever before for the 2014 awards, more than 5,000 estate agency offices were represented, but only the very best of the best picked up awards.

Paul Decalmer, Reeds Rains’ Stretford branch manager, says: “We are thrilled to receive this honour as this award emphasises Reeds Rains as a professional agent customers can trust.

“The judges’ report recognised Reeds Rains’ long history of trust and reliability, along with our culture of continuous development, and acknowledged that the entire team are property industry experts.

“The award is testament to the fact that Reeds Rains combines the best services that would be expected of a large corporation but with the more personal approach of a small independent agency.

“We always strive to make the whole process as straightforward and simple as possible.”

The awards were presented by Michelle Mone, one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs, who is the co-owner of Ultimo Brands International and founder of Ultimo, one of the UK’s leading lingerie brands.

Reeds Rains has been established since 1868 and has grown to become one of the UK’s largest estate agencies, with an expanding network of branches covering England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
