Property Frontiers scores hat trick at the OPP Awards for Excellence 2013

November 29, 2013Article by Ray Withers

It was a bumper night for Oxford-based investment agency, Property Frontiers, as the team scooped not one but three 2013 OPP Gold Awards for Excellence.

Scoring a hat trick at the prestigious international property industry awards, held on Wednesday 27th November at the famous Natural History Museum in London, Property Frontiers received Gold accolades for Best Agency Europe, Best Property Investment Advisors and Best Global Agency.

Judged by industry leaders from around the world, the OPP Awards for Excellence celebrate the best developers, estate agents and associated companies working in the global cross-border residential property industry with Property Frontiers proudly retaining their 2012 accolades for Best Estate Agency Europe and Best Global Estate Agency.

Ray Withers, Property Frontiers’ Chief Executive, commented,

“I am delighted that the achievements of the Property Frontiers team have once again been acknowledged through these OPP Awards of Excellence. Now in our ninth year of trading, I am incredibly proud of the knowledge and expertise of our team and it’s satisfying to see that the first-class service which we pride ourselves on offering our clients has been recognised by those within the industry.”

Comments from the independent judging panel included:

“The way this company assesses properties and then markets them is really wonderful.  They have a dedicated team that does their research and follows through.”

“Strong and rigorous procedures to solve complaints and ensure the accuracy of the properties, useful and forward thinking marketing, impressive track record…”

“Their competitors should read Property Frontier’s application before they enter the awards next year. Clear. Strong customer endorsement.”

Having pioneered a number of new asset classes including hotel room investments, retail space and alternative investments in 2013, Property Frontiers has broken boundaries and embraced new frontiers in keeping with the company’s ethos. Ray Withers comments,

“Once again we have worked hard to seek out new asset classes, markets and opportunities for investment over the last 12 months and are proud of the innovative products we have launched including retail units in the Mongolian capital, farmland investments in West Africa and hotel rooms in Germany. The team and I are committed to advancing and bettering this industry, as we say ‘property done properly’ and I believe this is what sets us apart from others.”

With this axiom in mind, Property Frontiers’ charity, the Frontiers Foundation, was once again welcomed back to the OPP Gala Dinner to hold its annual charity auction. Raising funds for the charity’s fourth project, A Night for Nepal, the evening saw the not-for-profit charity, of which Ray Withers is a Founder and Trustee, raise thousands of pounds for a range of school projects in the remote mountainous regions of Nepal.

Ray comments, “Thanks to organiser Xavier Wiggins and the OPPLive team, we were able to once again hold this superb charity auction for the Frontiers Foundation.  A major fundraising event in our calendar, the auction did not disappoint with all donated lots selling for a high price enabling us to fulfil our promise of support to the schoolchildren of northern Nepal.”
