Estate agent Gascoigne Halman has added to its trophy cabinet with another win at a national awards ceremony.

Earlier this year the independent estate agent collected two silver awards at The Estate Agency of the Year Awards in association with The Sunday Times and The Times for best ‘Medium Sized Agency’ and ‘Prestige Property’. They have now won Relocation Agent Network’s prestigious 2012 Best Agent Cheshire & North Wales Regional Award at the Network’s 19th Annual Conference, held at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, London on Friday 16 November.

The prize was awarded on a number of criteria measuring the agent’s overall contribution to Relocation Agent Network, their ability to achieve customer satisfaction, a strong market share locally and a proven record of helping relocating buyers move both in and out of the area.

Gascoigne Halman received their award at the Conference’s glamorous black tie Awards Dinner. The evening was hosted by BAFTA-winning impressionist and comedian, Rory Bremner, who presented their award.

John Halman of Gascoigne Halman comments, “With a number of major employers and organisations in our area we are very active with relocations both in and out of the region and I am immensely proud that through the team’s endeavours we have been named the region’s best Relocation Agent Network estate agent.”

Richard Tucker, Relocation Agent Network’s Managing Director said, “As members of Relocation Agent Network, a national network of independent estate agents across England, Scotland and Wales, our members promote their individual brand, but they are also encouraged to promote the Network as a whole. The 2012 Best Agent Cheshire & North Wales Regional Award is significant because it recognises the agent that has most successfully demonstrated great customer service, independent business initiatives, local market share and their commitment to the Relocation Agent Network principles.”


We’ll soon be travelling to London to attend a national estate agency Conference. Hosted by Relocation Agent Network, an estate agency organisation across England Scotland and Wales, the annual event is a great opportunity for Network members, like Gascoigne Halman to meet up.

Taking place on Friday 16 November at London’s Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, the Conference will include a trade exhibition and business expert speakers such as co-founder of Innocent and star of BBC 3 show, Be Your Own Boss, Richard Reed; Chief Economist for Lloyds Banking Group, Patrick Foley; and expert on the psychology of persuasion and influence, Philip Hesketh.

This year’s Conference will officially launch Relocation Agent Network. We used to be called Home Sale Network, but decided to change our name to reflect the scope of services that each member offers their customers. No longer just an organisation selling homes, network members, like us, are Relocation Agent specialists in each of our local areas.

The event always culminates in a glittering black tie evening Awards Dinner, where the guys and girls from Gascoigne Halman don their finery to celebrate the year’s successes and may even throw a few John Travolta moves afterwards. This year’s ceremony is even more exciting because Rory Bremner, the BAFTA-winning comedian and impressionist, will be the evening’s host and after dinner speaker.

We always leave Relocation Agent Network’s Annual Conference with fresh and exciting business ideas that benefit our customers and we’re sure that the 2012 event will be no exception.
