An estate agency founder in Kent is on her way to bagging two national gongs both for her business, Maddisons Residential.
Deborah Richards is a double finalist in the Best Business Women Awards 2021 after being shortlisted for both the Best Business and Best Consumer Business categories.
She will find out if she’s a double winner on 15th October in London at a gala final at the Hilton Hotel in Wembley.
Now in its seventh year, the award organisers say the competitors have had to be more tenacious and inventive than normal to bring their businesses successfully through the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic – making the judging a harder job than ever.
Deborah Richards’ shortlisting is in recognition of her dynamic leadership of her estate agency in supporting both clients and staff during the uncertainty created by lockdown and her role in supporting her local community.
Richards says: “It’s fantastic to have been selected for not one, but two Best Business Woman Awards.
“At Maddisons Residential, we pulled out all the stops to keep our house buyers and sellers in the loop when the industry was closed overnight by the pandemic restrictions, and then to find new ways to showcase houses for our sellers within the ongoing restrictions.
“It’s great to be recognised for the work that the team have put in over the last year.”
Maddisons has a single branch in Tunbridge Wells and eleven staff.
