The guild is also a sign of professional excellence that agents can use to differentiate themselves from their competitors and assure clients that they will act with knowledge and integrity to achieve results.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, John Minnis said: “We are absolutely delighted to be recognized among our most esteemed industry peers across the UK, including England, Scotland and Wales, and to go home with two awards is truly amazing and a credit to the whole team.

“The past two years have provided an extremely active market, and the team has come through this period extremely well, I want to thank them for their hard work, loyalty and dedication. Otherwise awards like these would not be possible.

Iain McKenzie, CEO of The Guild of Property Professionals, said: “It was great to be together again and to reflect on the last 12 months, looking at what happened in the sector in 2021 and what we are planning to perform in 2022. The Guild Awards are a way for us to recognize agents who have gone above and beyond for their clients and the industry in 2021. Congratulations to all the agents and offices who received awards this year, and all the best for 2022.”
