The British Property Awards is recognised as one of the most inclusive estate agency awards, on average judging over 90% of agents meeting the criteria at a local level. Its team mystery shops every agent against a set of 25 criteria to comprehensively judge customer service levels.

Robert McLean from The British Property Awards, added, “Our awards have been specifically designed to ensure that we have the most inclusive awards, removing any opportunity for bias or manipulation. Winning agents should be proud that their customer service levels provide a benchmark for their local, regional and national competition.”
