Jeff Cole, Director of Cole Rayment & White is delighted to announce that the company has won two awards at the prestigious International Property Awards 2015-2016, winning either Five Star or Highly Commended in the Real Estate Agency category for Cornwall for the second year running, and the Real Estate Agency Marketing category for South West England.
Having been in operation for 26 years, Cole Rayment & White has built an excellent reputation in the North Cornwall region, and has once again demonstrated its commitment to delivering distinctive sales and marketing campaigns which include the innovative use of tailored marketing tools and approach to lifestyle marketing.
The level of the awards Cole Rayment and White has won (either highly commended or 5-star) will be revealed when the official announcements are made at a gala presentation dinner at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square in Mayfair on the evening of Friday, October 9th. The International Property Awards is now in its 20th year and billed as being the property industry’s most prestigious awards programme.
Jeff ColeJeff Cole commented; “We are very proud to be the Cornwall winners for the second year in a row, and honoured to have our marketing strategy recognised as industry leading for the South West too. We believe it’s important to reflect the lifestyle of each home we are selling as well as the bricks and mortar, and we do so by producing high quality marketing materials to ensure sophisticated presentation.
“We also understand that widespread exposure of our properties for sale is crucial, especially as so many London and South East buyers are either purchasing a second home down here or moving this way permanently. So this year, we employed a PR consultant to target that audience to ensure we regularly appear in newspapers such as Sunday Times, Evening Standard and The Guardian. Combine this with our local expertise and our reputation for approachability and helpfulness, we are best placed to enhance the appeal of our homes, attract competitive interest and achieve the best price for our clients.”
As regional winners, the company is now in the running to represent the United Kingdom in the final stage of the competition later this year. If it has attained the highest score in the real estate agent category, Cole Rayment & White will compete against other winning companies from Asia Pacific, Africa, Canada, the USA, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Arabia and Europe for the coveted crown of World’s Best Real Estate Agent.
The award is a major achievement for Cole Rayment & White as entrants are judged against a strict set of criteria. Judging was undertaken by a panel of over 70 experts from all over the world and chaired by two active members of the House of Lords: Lord Caithness and Lord Best.
Stuart Shield, president of the International Property Awards, commented, “I’m delighted that the UK’s real estate agents, property consultants and lettings agencies have demonstrated such an extensive range of exemplary services, they have also embraced the latest in new technology and managed to achieve the extremely high levels of customer support that is vital to succeed in this competition.”
