Buckingham estate agent, Hamptons International has received gold in the best large agency category at the 2012 Estate Agency of the Year Awards.
The awards are run in association with The Sunday Times and The Times and were held at The Lancaster London Hotel earlier this month.
The event is recognised as one of the most important events in the property industry calendar, with the winners presented with their awards by Olympic swimmer and World 800 metre champion, Rebecca Adlington.

“We have continued to remain committed to delivering our customers an outstanding service and to extending our footprint and services to directly meet client demand.

“These awards also recognise the hard work carried out by all our staff and colleagues. It is them that make Hamptons International an award winning business and this gold is a true testament to their dedication.”
