H OUSING is not just about bricks and mor­tar, peo­ple mat­ter too and once again, in this year's Her­ald Prop­erty Awards for Scot­land, recog­ni­tion will be given to those peo­ple within the in­dus­try who go the ex­tra mile and make a tan­gi­ble dif­fer­ence, both to the com­pa­nies for whom they work and to the home­buy­ers in search of a new place to call their own.

Be­hind ev­ery suc­cess­ful de­vel­oper and prop­erty com­pany there are com­mit­ted staff mem­bers and amongst the awards that will be handed out this year, three are ded­i­cated to those teams whose out­stand­ing com­mit­ment and tenac­ity de­serves to be more widely ac­knowl­edged.

The Prop­erty Team of the Year cat­e­gory is open to all those work­ing within the in­dus­try from le­gal teams to con­struc­tion firms and Keith Ben­zie, Client Part­ner with Space & Time Me­dia, which spon­sors this award says: “Ef­fec­tive team­work is the back­bone of any pro­gres­sive busi­ness and plays a huge part in the con­tin­ued suc­cess of the Scot­tish prop­erty sec­tor.

“From ar­chi­tects and plan­ners through to the sales and mar­ket­ing teams on the front line, and the land, com­mer­cial, le­gal and fi­nan­cial teams be­hind some of the best known names in the busi­ness, the role of a strong, fo­cused team has never been more im­por­tant.

“Space & Time Me­dia are de­lighted to once again be spon­sor­ing the ‘Prop­erty Team of the Year’ award at this year’s Her­ald Prop­erty Awards.”

Last year the Res­i­den­tial Sales Team of the Year was won by Cru­den Homes West and Liz Mal­lon, Sales and Mar­ket­ing Direc­tor said: “Cru­den takes a very in­no­va­tive, for­ward think­ing and bespoke ap­proach to the cus­tomer sales jour­ney and we were thrilled to be recog­nised at last year’s Her­ald Prop­erty Awards.

“Win­ning the Res­i­den­tial Sales Team of the Year Award was a gen­uine ac­knowl­edge­ment of the col­lab­o­ra­tion of ef­fort within the Cru­den Homes West Sales Team, our con­struc­tion com­pany and our cus­tomers.

“Buy­ing a home can be both an ex­cit­ing and stress­ful time for peo­ple but our ded­i­cated, ex­pert sales team are proud that they are able to con­nect with our cus­tomers on both a prac­ti­cal and emo­tional level which helps re­move any stress and en­sures that cus­tomers look for­ward to and are ex­cited to pick up their keys and start the next chap­ter in their new dream home.” Mean­while Jonathan Ri­ley of spon­sors, Ret­tie & Co said: “Ret­tie & Co are de­lighted to be pre­sent­ing the award for the third con­sec­u­tive year for Res­i­den­tial Sales Team of the Year.

“It’s a pres­ti­gious award and thor­oughly com­pet­i­tive with some fan­tas­tic win­ners over pre­vi­ous years.”

The third award will go to the let­ting sec­tor, where staff have to sat­isfy the de­mands of both land­lords and ten­ants.

This takes time and judge­ment so it is all to their credit that last year’s win­ners, Clan Gor­don, has now won it twice.

Gil­lian McIntosh, Sales and Mar­ket­ing Man­ager, said: “Hav­ing pre­vi­ously won in 2014, we were de­lighted to re­claim this award in 2016.

“Win­ning Res­i­den­tial Let­tings Team of the Year is a great hon­our for ev­ery­one at Clan Gor­don, recog­nis­ing the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion that our team put in to pro­vide ex­cep­tional cus­tomer ser­vice for our land­lord and ten­ant clients.”
