Shortlisted for 3 ESTAS Awards

We are absolutely delighted to announce that Pace Properties Ltd has received very well-deserved recognition for it’s exceptional customer service as a lettings agent in Southend. The company has yet again proudly made it onto this years shortlist for The ESTAS, the largest award scheme for the UK residential property industry.

Unlike some awards, the ESTAS is driven by verified customer reviews. These reviews were collected at the conclusion of the “house moving experience” and the ESTAS meticulously monitors service ratings over a 12-month period to provide an accurate overview of the service quality provided to our customers. The Standard of Excellence recognition serves as a prestigious indicator, affirming the consistent service performance of all firms shortlisted in 2023. Incredibly, this year’s shortlist has been carefully determined after evaluating an astounding 300,000+ customer review ratings, nationwide!

Because Pace primarily operates as a property agent in Southend we have been shortlisted for three awards within the South East region, relating to Sales, Landlords and Tenants. The winners of regional and national categories will be revealed in October during the annual ESTAS awards ceremony held in London, attended by 1,200 UK property professionals and will be hosted by one of TVs best know property experts, Phil Spencer of “Location, Location, Location” fame.

Expressing his thoughts on the significance of the ESTAS Awards, Phil Spencer remarked, “The ESTAS Awards are based on real feedback, from real clients experiencing real service, so they provide genuine proof of the service levels that a firm is delivering to clients. Now more than ever, high-quality customer service is crucial if home movers are going to realize their dream of acquiring the property they have set their hearts on.

Pace Chief Executive Crystal Horwood comments,  “We take immense pride in being included in the shortlist for The ESTAS Awards. At Pace Properties Ltd, we understand the significance of exceptional customer service, recognising that clients have various options available to them. We have demonstrated our commitment to going above and beyond, striving to provide the highest level of service to our valued clients. Hopefully Pace will emerge victorious at The ESTAS Awards in October!”
