We have just been informed that we are among the winners in the UK regional stage of the International Property Awards 2014-15 sponsored by Gaggenau and in association with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Having competed against a number of real estate agents and property consultants in the county to receive this recognition, we will find out exactly which awards we have secured when the official announcements are made at a gala and presentation dinner dance at the Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, London, on the evening of Friday, October 24th.
If we are the highest-scoring winner in the region, we will go on to represent the UK at international level and compete against companies from Asia Pacific, Africa, Canada, the USA, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Arabia and Europe for the coveted title of World's Best.
The award represents a significant achievement for Coast & Country. The International Property Award Winners’ logo is recognised as a symbol of excellence throughout the industry and entries are subject to a stringent vetting procedure, with only six per category, per county put through to the rigorous judging process.
The Awards’ judging panel consists of over 70 highly respected experts from all over the world and is chaired by three active members of the House of Lords: Lord Caithness, Lord Best and Lord Courtown.
The judges are allocated entries according to their area of expertise and each entry is assessed against a strict set of criteria. A percentage score is calculated which decides whether the entry wins an award or not. It also decides if the award will be Highly Commended or 5-star.
For each category, the region’s highest-scoring 5-star winner is automatically awarded the regional award for that category. At the end of the awards’ year, all regional winners will have their entries re-judged to decide the International World’s Best award winners. These will be announced at the grand final gala presentation dinner dance at the Jumeirah Madinat in Dubai on Thursday, December 4th, 2014.
We find out on October 24th 2014, and we have our fingers crossed that our hard work has paid off for another year. Wish us good luck!
