CPS Property was founded in 1987, meaning that they have over 30 years’ experience in the Northern Ireland property market. Priding themselves on a reputation built on trust, they use their extensive local knowledge to their advantage, making sure that they not only keep abreast of the current market, but look ahead and forecast local trends. Last year, they decided to enter the Northern Ireland Agency of the Year category, winning Gold at The Negotiator Awards 2017.
The Negotiator Awards is one of the most prestigious awarding bodies for the UK residential estate and lettings agents industry. CPS Property, newer to the awards scene, entered for the Northern Ireland Agency of the Year category, and were delighted to win Gold. Sheila Manchester, Editorial Director at The Negotiator, commented: “With an impressive growth in market share and an energy to improve housing availability through funding developers, this is the standout agency in Northern Ireland!”
Eoin O’Hagan, Sales and Marketing Advisor, speaks about their experience with The Negotiator Awards, and how it has helped them to build on their already impressive growth:
“We’ve definitely seen a crazy amount of growth in the last year – business has increased by about 24% and we’ve moved from being in the Top 10 Northern Irish agencies to the Top Three, which is a fantastic recognition of our hard work. Of course, Belfast remains our stronghold, but we were able to open a new office in Portadown and we are now the third largest agency in that area after only four months. We went from being ranked 5th in Omagh to having the largest market share, and have strengthened our market position in several other areas. In this time, we also grew our team from 41 to 54″.
“Our award win has certainly contributed to our growth, not only through increased publicity, but also because it reaffirms confidence in what we’re offering and gives us the drive to keep pushing forward. Obviously after the financial crash the market has become a lot more uncertain and difficult to operate in, but I would say now we’re in the strongest position we’ve ever been. It feels great to regain that ground”.
“When we entered The Negotiator Awards last year, we were only just starting to look towards awards. There are various other ways to get the message out there about what you do, but we saw other agencies winning awards, and thought – we have a comparable offering, we’re confident in what we offer, why not give it a go? We were thrilled to win and have our success recognised, and will be applying again in 2018!”
