Indestructible Haus win Gold at the Estate Agency of the year Awards
South West London property agency, Haus Properties (www.hausproperties.co.uk), has received a gold award for “Best London Estate Agency” (small) and bronze for “Best Website” at the Estate Agency of the Year Awards 2013. The prestigious event, held at The Lancaster Hotel on Friday, 6th December and sponsored by The Times and The Sunday Times, recognises the very best in estate agency.
The Estate Agency of the Year Awards is the longest running and most highly regarded awards event in the estate agency industry. Haus Properties’ win follows their 2012 awards success, of “Best Newcomer” and “Best Innovation”. The Judges’ report on “Best London Estate Agency” recognised Haus Properties efforts in an extremely competitive category, and stated: “There is clear evidence this small agency is fast gaining on the large corporates. The offices are designed to be casual and relaxing for clients but behind the scenes is a team of sharp, proactive negotiators who are working hard for their customers. The panel firmly believe that if you give this agency a property, they will sell it for you.”
In commenting on the best website category, the judges were particularly impressed with Haus’ website’s interactivity and social-led format, noting the relevant and informative blog and useful online tools. They were also impressed with the technology: “The use of Open Book technology is excellent; this back end system allows vendors to access a personal journal containing all the information pertinent to their move as well as statistics and news from Haus. This can include viewing feedback, press advertising, appointment confirmations and property specs. In a highly competitive category, the judges were pleased to see this small agency giving the big boys a run for their money.”
Jamie Lester, Founder and Head of Haus Properties, comments: “It’s a total delight to win best London estate agency - there are literally hundreds of small, independent estate agents in London, so we know it is a competitive category. To gain recognition for this and our website following last year’s “newcomer” award is such a testament to the team who have worked exceptionally hard to deliver great customer service to all our clients, buyers and tenants, not to mention support our local community. We look forward to continuing our success in 2014.”
Haus Properties burst onto the scene in November 2011, and is designed to be a world away from the stereotypical view of estate agents. Haus has doubled its market share year on year, selling over £57 million worth of property in just two years. Their reputation continues to grow, and they have become an intrinsic part of the community having reinvested over £650,000 into local businesses and donated £20,634 to local schools and charities to date.
