Michael Jones Estate Agents short listed for national award

Written by sean on October 29th, 2008 | Posted in General news and views | Comments Off on Michael Jones Estate Agents short listed for national award

We’re delighted to announce, award-winning estate and lettings agent, Michael Jones, has been short listed for the Estate Agency Marketing Team of the Year in The Negotiator Awards 2008, organised in association with Findaproperty.com and Primelocation.com.

Michael Jones has employed the same marketing and graphic design team for more than five years – Tania Fensom from Marketing Menu, and Francesca Martelly from Firefly Creative.

Michael Jones is one of six estate agents throughout the country selected for this prestigious award, which recognises the company’s marketing and advertising campaigns as being outstanding in the industry. Since Michael Jones was formed in 1991, it has been committed to providing a service that shows it values its customers and has invested heavily in marketing to achieve this.

Clare Bettelley, editor of The Negotiator, the leading magazine for the world of estate agency, said: “We’ve had a terrific response and Michael Jones has done brilliantly to get short listed from such a huge field. Britain’s estate agents are certainly having a tough time at the moment, but this is an industry awash with talent, entrepreneurialism and creativity, so we’re delighted we’re able to organise a ceremony to reward firms that are delivering industry best practice”.

Mike Jones said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be in the final six, particularly as we’re up against the likes of Hamptons, Winkworth and Chesterton who are all big names with big budgets. As one of the smallest agencies, and the only one chosen from the South, it’s fantastic that we’ve got this far. Winning this award would be an amazing achievement!”

The awards, held annually, celebrate the highest standards across the property industry and will be presented by comedian Rory Bremner at a glittering ceremony at the London Hilton Hotel in Park Lane on Tuesday 11 November.

The sponsors of the awards include Findaproperty.co, primelocation.com, Thames Water, My HomeMove, PSG, SimplyHip, Evolvin, Homelet, the National Association of Estate Agents, The Association of Independent Inventory Clerks and the Association of Residential Letting Agents.
