Invest with only the best. Property Frontiers named Best Global Estate Agency 2012

October 15, 2012Article by Ray Withers

The room was quiet. Dinner had been served, industry banter had been abundant and glasses were full, ready to toast the winners of the most coveted accolade of the evening, the OPP Award for Excellence – Best Global Estate Agency 2012.

I sat with baited breath with my Wife, members of the Property Frontiers team and my peers in the industry, waiting for the Editor of OPP magazine, John Howell to reveal the winner.

Had we done enough? Were the hours spent late at night working on the award entry worth it? Would we once again be recognised as the best in our business?

“And the winner of Best Global Estate Agency goes to…. Property Frontiers!”
Yes! We had done it again!

Walking up to the stage to collect our second award of the evening (the first being Best Estate Agency – Europe) I was overwhelmed with pride; it seemed the perfect way to celebrate our 8th and one of the most successful years in business.

Now in their 5th year, the OPP Awards celebrate the best developers, estate agents and associated companies working in the global cross border residential property industry. Having been bestowed an OPP Award for Excellence previously I was determined for our achievements, our dedication to breaking boundaries, embracing new frontiers and exemplary customer service, to be recognized once again.

And although highly pleasing on a personal level, at a time when clients are increasingly cautious about making property investments, seeking safety and security at every turn, industry accolades such as the OPP Awards for Excellence are essential in highlighting companies which can be trusted to deliver and this is exactly what we do at Property Frontiers.

With that in mind, I’d like to thank every single member of the Property Frontiers team for all their hard work, professionalism and dedication not only these last 12 months but across the years. The high standards we hold ourselves to have been recognised and I look forward to working alongside you to ensure we have an even more successful future.
