These two awards belong to my wonderful colleagues and are a fabulous recognition of their continued superb work and tireless energy in pursuing the very best for our clients.  I am so lucky and privileged to work alongside the very best people.  We are only a small firm, the company was founded by my father, Richard Cardwell in 1982, and to surpass many much larger firms with bigger budgets and many more staff to these awards really is a significant accomplishment.”

The awards process involves mystery shopping exercises, consultation with customers from around Bury, assessment of works undertaken, and comparison of marketing materials used to promote properties For Sale and To Let.  A panel of over 80 Industry experts assess entrants, and the process is overseen by Lord Best, Lord Caithness and Lord Waverley, members of The House of Lords.

“There are a lot of Estate Agents offices in Lancashire so to be recognised as the finest, and be the winners of the award is a fantastic achievement” Says Mr. Cardwell. 

Cardwells Estate Agents Bury also walked away with the “Best Estate Agency Marketing” award too.

The marketing prize recognises the superb promotion of the properties that we advertise For Sale or To Let on behalf of our clients. This includes both residential and commercial property, I understand that our photography and video materials were a key factor considered by the judges.” 

Cardwells are no strangers to Industry recognition, having during recent years been awarded a variety of accolades by a variety of Awarding bodies, Andrew Cardwell says:

British Property Awards 2019 – Winners of Best Estate Agents in Bolton!

Andrew Cardwell, Managing Director, says “We are delighted to win The British Property Award for our Bolton office.  It’s a great honour to be seen as the best in the Bolton area, particularly as the criteria was based upon customer service and was assessed by mystery shopping experiences. To win is a superb achievement and a great recognition for the superb work of our property sales and letting teams.  Richard (Cardwell, founder) and I are extremely proud of each and every colleague and how hard they work. We all understand that the priority is to look after our clients best interests, and this is just as important today, as it was when we formed in 1982. It is a privilege to work alongside them”.  

Robert McClean from The British Property Awards says; “Cardwells Estate Agents have shown fantastic customer service levels that they have demonstrated across a prolonged period of time. They should be proud that their customer service levels provide a benchmark for their local competition.

What it takes to win the  British Property Awards 2019

The British Property Awards were created by a dedicated team of former estate agency owners who believe that the industry is unfairly judged by some consumers, due to the shortcomings of some estate agents. A recent poll indicated that just 25% of consumers trust Estate Agents, making it the second least trusted profession. The Awarding body believe that agents who provide a fantastic service and go that extra mile for their clients, should be rewarded and highlighted for their endeavours. Estate agents are assessed against a set of 25 criteria points, most of which are often overlooked by the consumer and certainly overlooked before they decide to get in contract with an estate agent.

We’ve also won the silver British Property Award for the Best Estate Agents in North West (Manchester)

The British property awards do not charge to enter, this ensures maximum participation, the team personally mystery shops every estate agent against a set of 25 criteria to obtain a balanced overview of their customer service levels. The judging criteria is comprehensive and explores different mediums, time frames and scenarios to ensure that estate agents and letting agents have been rigorously and fairly judged.
