AN ESTATE agent with branches in Guiseley, Ilkley and Otley is celebrating winning a clutch of industry awards.

Dale Eddison received a total of seven accolades from this year’s The ESTAS - the industry’s equivalent of the Oscars.

Now in their 17th year, the awards - powered by ESTAS’ own customer review platform - recognise the best estate and letting agents for customer service based on ratings provided by their clients.

Dale Eddison were awarded Gold in the Best Group in Yorkshire and Silver in the Best Group in the UK categories.

The firm’s Ilkley office did exceptionally well, achieving both Best in County and Best Individual Branch in West Yorkshire: followed by Otley, with Silver, and Guiseley, with Bronze.

The company’s Skipton branch also achieved Silver in the Best Individual Branch in North Yorkshire category.

Area Sales Manager for Dale Eddison, William Eddison, said: “As staunch supporters of the ESTAS - the only estate agency awards based on customer feedback - over the years Dale Eddison have had some phenomenal success, but I suspect none more so than this year.

“This is a resounding success for all the teams across the Dale Eddison branches and it’s great to see that their hard work recognised.”

More than 1,500 agents tuned in on YouTube to listen to the results, which were based on research that had been carried out among customers who were asked a series of questions about the service they had received.

More than 45,000 votes were cast this year. ESTAS Group Founder Simon Brown said: “The ESTAS is now the customer review platform of choice for property professionals and the most prestigious award an agent, a conveyancer or mortgage broker can win in the property industry.”

Area Sales Manager for Dale Eddison, Bill Dale, added: “There is no shortage of excellent agents around our areas so to be awarded such a prestigious accolade demonstrates the instrumental efforts from our entire team.”
