The last two years have been unprecedented – everyone knows how active the Channel Island property markets have been – but milestones like our ‘Jersey anniversary’ are a great time to reflect on our group success, entering a new jurisdiction and looking at how far we’ve come in four years.
Normally, at this time of year, we’d be gearing up for the International Property Awards – always a highlight of the calendar – and other awards programmes that reward the best in our industry.
However, after our success of being named the best Real Estate Agency in the world in the last International awards, we have decided not to accept any invitations to enter any awards this year and instead focus our efforts in developing some exciting new projects.
Entering awards at the level that we do takes serious amounts of work – compiling a year’s activity through analytics, statistics and design work. Each category presented to the judges for the 2021 awards comprised bespoke books with 500+ hand-crafted pages in each – 1,500+ bespoke pages all with individual content.
We’re lucky that we have the creative team led by Simon to undertake such a task and are privileged over the years to have won many awards for our work. We also recognise that these schemes can play a big part in putting Livingroom, and the islands we’re so proud to represent, on the map.
The chance to compete against multi-office and international agencies is one we find cathartic, and we’ve proved time and again that a small Channel Island company can hold its own if it is true to itself. It’s in that spirit that we’ve decided not to enter any awards this year and instead, we are taking the time to keep moving forward.
So what have we been up to? Primarily, selling and letting homes in the Channel Islands. Our team has worked so hard in a busy market to maintain high levels of client service and meet challenging conditions head-on. By remaining honest and transparent in our communications with clients, we have succeeded in helping hundreds of islanders find their dream homes – over 500 from 01/01/2022 – to 21/09/22 alone.
At Livingroom we’re constantly striving to do even better, so if you’re looking to sell or buy property in the Channel Islands, we’ve got a team that will work relentlessly for you – get in touch today.
