Staff at local estate agents, Reeds Rains, are celebrating following the announcement that their colleague, Donna Riding, has been shortlisted in a national awards competition to find the Best Estate Agency Branch Manager in the UK.
Donna's success comes after she was nominated, by her Regional Director, in to a specialist category in the highly regarded Estate Agency of the Year Awards - which are open to estate agents across the UK and organised in association with the Sunday Times and The Times. Following her nomination, and the completion of an award entry, Donna took part in a telephone interview with the awards judges who then chose to put her through to the UK shortlist.
The Awards are some of the most sought after in the UK Property Industry and to be nominated and shortlisted is considered to be a major achievement.
Richard Sealey, Regional Managing Director for Reeds Rains commented:
“I nominated Donna because, put simply, she is one of the best estate agents I have come across in my 23 years in the business. Her selfless attitude in dealing with customers and staff alike means she often puts the needs of others before her own and its why, on many occasions, she goes the extra mile to achieve a positive result – especially for the many local buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants we have.
I’m delighted that Donna has already been shortlisted and am now hoping she’ll go on to win the award and receive the recognition she truly deserves from the industry as a whole.”
Donna will find out if she has been successful when she attends a special awards ceremony in London on Friday 2 December – attended by literally hundreds of representatives from the property industry.
