Website of the Year Award for Jackson-Stops & Staff
Jackson-Stops & Staff, the national estate agents, with 43 offices across England, has won the coveted award of Best UK Estate Agency Website of the Year for 2011-2012. The award, part of the UK Property Awards sponsored by Google & Bloomberg, and recognised by all of the industry professional bodies, sets an industry standard for property related businesses.

The prestigious black tie event took place at the Lancaster Hotel in London, and was attended by more than 400 people involved in the property industry, including national and regional estate agents, surveyors, architects, and interior designers.

The evening began with a Champagne reception and dinner, culminating in the awards ceremony. The UK Property Awards were announced by Jennie Bond, journalist and BBC former Royal Correspondent and presented by representatives from Google.

Colin Hughes comments: It was very exciting to hear the winner being announced and invited to the stage to receive this highly regarded award.

We work very hard to improve our website continually and it is an honour to be judged to be the best in the UK. David Parris added: Since it is recognised that the vast majority of purchasers or tenants start their search on line, it was particularly important for the website to be accessible and user friendly. Jackson-Stops & Staff was one of the first agencies to have a dedicated mobile site and, amongst its various innovations, has bespoke apps for the iphone as well as Android products.

Our clients directly benefit from this technology to promote their properties to the widest possible buying audience both in the UK and worldwide.
