Samuel Wood & Company received a ‘Highly Commended’ award as part of the UK section which is supported by the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA).
Awards president Stuart Shield, said: “These honours are able to highlight the latest techniques and innovation in the marketing and presentation of Britain’s homes and we are delighted to make this award to Samuel Wood for their outstanding efforts and continued success, as recognised by a team of select judges who scrutinised hundreds of entries from across the UK.”
Russell Griffin, a Partner at Samuel Wood & Co, added: “We are thrilled to have been recognised by such a well respected body and feel that this accolade will inspire us to expand and better our services even further in the future.
"It is even more rewarding in that we were competing against much larger companies from across the UK and it clearly helps showcase just how much Shropshire and an independently owned estate agent has to offer in the bigger picture.”
