Sequre shortlisted for Investment Agent of the Year
We are pleased to announce that Sequre Property Investment have been nominated for Best Residential Investment Agency at this year’s RESI awards.
Now in their 5th year, the RESI awards are amongst some of the most prestigious events in the property industry. Organised by the makers of national publication, Property Week, the RESI awards aim to celebrate all aspects of the residential property market and the success achieved over the previous year.
After an exceptional 12 months for Sequre, we are delighted to have been recognised for our achievements.
Success in 2015
The start of the year saw Sequre’s official launch into international property. After noticing an increased demand from our own clients as well as closely monitoring the overseas market, we decided the time was right to launch Sequre International. Primarily focusing on properties in Spain, particularly in areas such as the Costa Blanca, Costa Calida and the Costa del Sol, Sequre International expanded rapidly. Now, with an average of 150 viewing trips being booked every month and the launch of our international website, we are predicting even bigger success for our overseas division for the foreseeable future. So much so, that we are due to launch two new offices in Spain this year.
2015 also saw our bi-annual buy to let property seminar return - both events sold out completely. The first of our two seminars was held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester back in May. Hosted by TV presenter and property writer Melissa Porter, the day was a huge success and saw presentations from Sequre’s own director Michael Sacks, Colin Smyth from Baker Tilly, Lora Roberts from Ascend Properties and Rupert MacKay from Hometrack. Then in September, we took the seminar back to the Emirates Stadium in London, which saw the addition of Sarah Davidson, deputy editor of Mortgage Introducer magazine, to the line-up. Both seminars attracted hundreds of delegates who were keen to learn more about the benefits of investing in property and how to maximise their returns. From first time investors to landlords with portfolios worth several million pounds, our events cater for everyone and our relaxed no-pressure approach is popular with clients. Our next event for 2016 is now confirmed. Further details are available here.
As we enter Q2 of 2016, the team at Sequre are on track for another bumper year. There are several trade shows in the diary along with our own seminars and events keeping our team as busy as ever. We’re also just a few weeks away from opening two new office spaces in Spain, one in Marbella, Costa del Sol and the other in Campoamor on the Costa Blanca. Our continued growth has also seen us expand our team dramatically with a huge 78% increase in staff levels over the past year.
We are incredibly proud to have achieved so much and are confident that as we grow as a business, we will continue to improve our service levels and offering. We still remain, as The Telegraph stated “the superstar agents who put buyers first” and will continue delivering unparalleled customer service for many years to come.
The winner of the RESI Award for Residential Agent of the Year will be announced on the 11th May at the Grosvenor House in London and we would like to wish the best of luck to all of the nominees.
