Simon Brown, Founder of The ESTAS, explains: “All great businesses have to perform consistently to stay successful – like the best sports teams, they never rest on their laurels. They are always looking to raise the bar and that’s what makes them great. Zoopla has been fantastic at partnering with agents and providing them with a platform over the last ten years, so this is the perfect way to celebrate their support. As we head into the next decade with all the opportunities and challenges that it will bring, we’ll pause for a moment and salute those agents who have performed at a consistently high standard. The Zoopla Xcellence Award will be the ultimate ESTAS accolade and competition is set to be fierce.”

Andy Marshall, Chief Commercial Officer, Zoopla comments: “Zoopla is founded on the core principle of excellence in customer service, and we pride ourselves on the first-rate experience that we deliver to our customers, as well as homebuyers, renters and sellers. A decade of partnership with The ESTAS is the perfect opportunity to give agents the chance to be recognised – regardless of their size or location – for going that extra mile.”

The ESTAS Awards recognise agents, conveyancers and mortgage brokers from across the property industry for delivering excellence in customer service. Powered by ESTAS customer review platform, each shortlisted entry is assessed on the basis of genuine customer feedback.

The county, regional and national winners will be announced at The ESTAS on Friday 15th May at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in London. Over 1,000 agents and leading industry suppliers will attend the awards, presented by Phil Spencer.

Spencer, who needs no introduction said: “The ESTAS are recognising exceptional service from agents and that is something I’m a firm believer in. There is a real opportunity for agents to show home hunters and sellers that service really does matter. Agents do an incredible job for their clients and this is a great way to put the spotlight on and champion their achievements.”

John Harrison, Managing Director of Houseclub said “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for the Zoopla Xcellence Award. To be recognised for the consistent excellent service we try and deliver to all our clients year after year makes us feel so proud.
