Red Hot Property has received the highest award for excellence at this year’s UK Property Awards, held in London.

The Hexham-based estate agent received the highest five-star rating and the ‘Best Estate Agency Single Office’ title for Northumberland at the event, held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in Hyde Park on October 25.

The win marks the eighth consecutive award for excellence for the business.

The awards were judged by an independent panel of 93 industry experts, and focused on quality, service, innovation, originality, client focus and overall achievement.

The accolade was presented at a gala dinner in front of over 500 guest from the property industry.

Business owner Gareth Jones said: “We are delighted to be recognised again for our achievements by such an esteemed organisation and in front of such a respected group of property professionals, each of whom themselves excel in their field.

“Red Hot Property has always focused on excellence and delivering on our promises and we are hugely proud of the massive contribution each member of our experienced team provides towards our success.

“We have continued our growth for over a decade and our rental business supports more and more landlords through our management service.

"This provides an excellent platform to further develop and refine our approach, in the interests of our clients’ success in selling or letting their homes.”

Stuart Shield, chairman of the UK Property Awards, said: “I’d like to congratulate Red Hot Property for their success again at this year’s awards. The object of these awards is to recognise excellence and maintain high standards in the property industry and I congratulate their whole team for their splendid efforts.”
