National awards success for Karl Tatler 8 years running

Karl Tatler Estate Agents & Lettings has once again celebrated a top award win at the national Estate Agency of the Year Awards.

One of the UK’s most consistently awarded agents, Karl Tatler was competing against 5,000 offices at the awards ceremony in London. The company won Silver for Best Small Northern Estate Agency of the Year – their eighth consecutive year of winning at these prestigious awards.  

Managing director Karl Tatler said: “These awards are exceptionally tough to enter, let alone win, so we are very proud to have been honoured yet again with a Best Small Northern Estate Agency of the Year title. The awards we have won are recognition of our high standard of customer service, our proven sales record and position as a market leader. Award wins like this demonstrate that we are delivering in ways that matter to sellers and buyers and that how we work has been scrutinised and subsequently commended.”

The event was the culmination of a rigorous judging process carried out by an independent panel of industry experts. Following the thorough assessment of entrants’ written submissions, the judges conducted over 150 hours of telephone interviews and mystery shopping exercises.

Karl added: “2013 has been another successful year with our sales increasing by almost 40% for the second consecutive year, we are also averaging 96% of the asking price – meaning more of our vendors have been able to move home and at a better price. Achieving success for our clients is our ultimate goal – winning the award is a bonus.”

As entrants in the Northern category, Wirral based Karl Tatler was competing with agents from the East coast of England up to the Scottish boarder.

Hosted by newsreader and TV presenter Penny Smith on 6th December 2013, the awards are firmly established as the most prestigious and difficult to win. The panel of 20 judges was chaired by The Property Ombudsman Christopher Hamer, with Martyn Baum, vice president of the NAEA, as arbiter.

The annual Estate Agency of the Year Awards and Lettings Agency of the Year Awards and are in association with The Sunday Times and The Times. Karl Tatler Estate Agents & Lettings has consistently won multiple awards at both events since 2006 and scooped Gold earlier in the year for Best Small Northern Lettings Agency of the Year.
