Ewemove won hybrid Estate Agency of the Year at the Negotiator Awards held at the Grosvenor House hotel in central London on Friday night.
The award was one of three dozen or so given away during the gala evening, which was hosted by comedian and TV presenter Julian Clarey.
Ewemove’s CEO Nick Neill was there to collect his award, which his company won ahead of competition from emerging competitor Doorsteps and Nested.
The award comes just months after the hybrid agency, which has several high street branches as well as a network of office and home-working franchisees, revealed that it had almost doubled its income fees, has 114 territories and is trading profitably.
Other winners during the night included Angarad Trueman of CGT Lettings, who won Rising Star of the Year, fast-expanding Linley & Simpson, which won Community Champion of the year and Charters Estate Agents, which won Website of the Year.
The best new agency of the year went to Waterhouse Estate Agents in Cumbria while national firm Firstport won property management company of the year.
The influence of technology on the industry wasn’t far away during the awards. Four tech-driven businesses won their categories including Reapit, Goodlord, Dataloft and Viewber.
The award evening followed a busy day of conference presentations at the hotel hosted by BBC radio presenter Justin Webb. This included appearances by former UK ambassador to the EU
Sir Ivan Rogers, tech academic Professor Andrew Baum, ARLA chief executive David Cox, investment analyst Anthony Codling, former NAEA President Katie Griffin, consultant Adam Walker, Hunters CEO Glynis Frew and Hometrack’s Richard Donnell.
