It was an important and highly positive day for UK real estate on Saturday 27th November when leading property professionals gathered at the Lancaster London Hotel for the presentations of the UK Property Awards in association with Bloomberg Television.
One of these rightly proud winners is Thompson Estates which has won in the category of Best Real Estate Agency Jersey UK. The fact that Thompson Estates has won one of these coveted awards is proof that Jersey has proved capable of triumphing within the highly competitive UK property arena.
Stuart Shield, chairman of the International Property Awards says, “In our quest to find the most outstanding projects and property professionals from around the world we were fascinated to discover that the total value of the award winning projects was over $100 billion. This helps to contrast with the ‘Bear’ market approach to the property market in general. There are some incredibly strong roots being established for the future growth and generation of properties that are more attractive to look at, safer, kinder to the environment, smarter and able to deliver a better quality of life for those who live and work in them.”
Much of the judging was carried by the International Property Awards’ panel of judges at the London offices of Bloomberg Television but entries were also outsourced to leading experts in each particular field throughout the world. This year’s judges included Luke McKend, industry head property markets of Google UK; Peter Bolton King, group chief executive of the National Federation of Property Professionals; Christopher Hall, president elect of FIABCI; Thijs Stoffer, International Consortium ofÂ Real Estate Agents Association (ICREA); Fiona Nixon, chairman of the Australia Institute of Architects, Hendrik Nelde, president of FIABCI Belgium; Helen Shield, editor-in-chief of International Homes Luxury Collection magazine and Sven Johns, CEO of the German Real Estate Association.
Margaret Thompson, Managing Director said of winning the Best Real Estate Agency in the county of Jersey, “This is recognition for the fantastic work carried out by every member of the Thompson Estates team. Commitment to best practice and excellence are even more important at times like this as Island buyers and sellers want to ensure that they are dealing with the best professionals.”
