A successful hybrid estate agent has been named a rising star by the Women in Business Awards.
Rebecca Holders (main pi, left) won the Leicestershire arm of the national awards, which are run by regional newspaper publisher Reach, which also owns the Daily Express and Mirror titles.
Holders, who is in her early 20s, launched her hybrid estate agency career with regional firm Hortons in Loughborough and, the firms says, became a market leader within the university town within 12 months.
This is despite the challenges of lockdowns and other Covid restrictions during the pandemic, she says.
Adam Horton, Hortons CEO says: “Rebecca is an extremely talented agent. She is highly determined and focused but ultimately she really cares about her clients, and this shines through, and has helped her stand out. This achievement is very well deserved, and it’s great to see her recognised with such a prestigious award.”
“Not only has Rebecca achieved incredible success in her estate agency career, but she has done so whilst investing a huge amount of time and effort into her own personal development. She takes control over her destiny, and it is inspirational both to me personally and to the whole company.”
Holders, who has worked for three traditional high street agents before joining the Hortons network, now has a team of six people working for her including three client managers, a sales negotiator and two viewings assistants.
Rebecca actively works on her personal development, and in the last few years has completed a business management degree, and became an accredited domestic energy surveyor, all while working as an estate agent.
