We've made all the right moves to win GOLD

Karl Tatler Estate Agents beat off stiff competition to win Gold at the national Estate Agency of the Year awards yet again.

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 Gold for Best Small Northern Estate Agency of the Year – their ninth consecutive year of winning at these prestigious awards. 

Managing director Karl Tatler said: "It is fantastic reward for all our loyal and hard-working teams. The guys work incredibly hard, day in, day out and we are delighted to come here and collect Gold for Best Small Northern Estate Agency of the Year. Well done to all the team, they really deserve this and the award highlights just how much we strive to progress every year."

The event on the 5th December 2014 was the culmination of a rigorous and thorough judging process. A panel of 19 industry experts assessed written submissions before conducting an extensive review of the entrants, which included over 150 hours of telephone interviews and mystery shopping exercises.

Karl added: “2014 has been another successful year with our sales increasing by almost 40% for the third consecutive year, we are also averaging 97% 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 awards is a bonus.”

As entrants in the Northern category, Karl Tatler was competing with agents from the east coast of England right up to the Scottish border. Now in its twelfth year, these awards have become widely recognised as the most prestigious and difficult to win, with this year welcoming more entrants than ever before.

The judges explained why Karl Tater Estate Agents won: "The judges remain impressed by the attention to detail and focus on improvement demonstrated by this agency. Karl Tatler and his team have a remarkable empathy and connection with all their clients. In the first nine months of this year, the majority of instructions were via referrals or repeat business. They are renowned for their innovative and proactive approach and customers therefore have extremely high expectations of the service they will receive."

The whole of the judging process was overseen by The Property Ombudsman, Christopher Hamer, and Mark Hayward, managing director of the NAEA acted as arbiter. On the night of the event, winners were presented with their awards by Michelle Mone OBE, one of the UK's most successful female entrepreneurs and founder of international lingerie brand, Ultimo. Renowned journalist, author and newsreader Penny Smith was the event compere.

This caps off a wonderful year with Karl Tatler Lettings claiming three gongs at the 2014 Lettings Agency of the Year awards earlier in the year.
