The UK’s top managing agents have been recognised at an awards ceremony which also raised more than £3,000 for charity.
Attended by 500 property professionals, the Association of Residential Managing Agents ACE Awards celebrate excellence and exceptional achievement by firms and suppliers in the sector.
The 18 winners were announced during a ceremony in London, after an adjudication process by a panel of independent judges.
Nigel Glen, chief executive of ARMA, said: “The winners are a real credit to the industry and I know what a hard job the judges had in deciding who should go home with a trophy from so many outstanding finalists.
“The winning firms and team members are setting the standard for companies that wish to be recognised for achieving excellence and best practice in their field.”
Dementia UK, which provides specialist support for families through its Admiral Nurse service, was ARMA’s charity partner this year and £3,467 was raised for the cause during the event.
