The bubbles are on ice and we’re getting ready to light the candles on the cake – it’s our sixth birthday today!

And the celebrations are all the sweeter this year after our team was recently awarded top honours at the Estate Agent of the Year Awards (ESTAS).

Giggs and Company was named Best Estate Agent in the East of England covering Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire, as well as being ranked tenth in the country overall.

“The reason this award is so special is because it’s a national award that’s voted on by our clients,” says Matt Giggs, director.

“Reading through the feedback that gets collected with the votes is really encouraging for our staff.

“Thank you to everyone who voted for us, we’re really delighted.”

Votes for the ESTAS are gathered throughout the year, with the results announced at an awards ceremony in London.

“It’s not just small independent businesses, we were taking on the big guns,” says Matt.

Another thrill was getting to meet property expert and television personality Phil Spencer, who hosted awards.

“The ESTAS are special because shortlisted and winning firms are selected purely on the service you deliver to your clients,” says Phil.

“Real feedback from real customers experiencing real service, I don’t think there can be a greater honour in the industry than to receive an award based on that mantra.”
