Fine & Country Portugal wins two international awards
Fine & Country Portugal was awarded the titles of ‘Best International Real Estate Agency Marketing’ and ‘Best Real Estate Agency Europe’ at the 2018-2019 International Property Awards.
The national branch of the estate agency, with head offices in Estoril, received the award on December 3 at The Savoy in London, just a stone’s throw away from the Fine & Country International Headquarters on Park Lane.
Charles Roberts, Director of Fine & Country Portugal, said: “We are honoured to win these awards. They reflect our successful growth and performance. 2018 has been a year of consolidation for our company as well as further expansion in our target areas.”
According to Roberts, a “large new prime location office” opened in the centre of Cascais as well as a new office in Duque de Loulé in Lisbon and a satellite office in Carvalhal near Comporta. This has brought Fine & Country’s total number of offices to eight, without including the 3 offices in the Algarve operated by a different licensee.
The international accolades were also highlighted by Nuno Duro, Managing Partner at Fine & Country Portugal.
“International recognition through the awards we have just won brings enormous pride to the shareholders and to the employees as well as being an excellent marketing tool for our business,” Duro said.
“The combination of the strength of the brand of Fine & Country and the excellence of our marketing department are the foundations on which the success of the company is built. Winning these awards while being up against multinational competition reinforces the fact that our marketing is successful and driving in the right direction,” he added.
Best Overseas Operator
Fine & Country Lisbon have also enjoyed international success recently, receiving the ‘Best Overseas Operator Award’ at the Fine & Country gala dinner and awards ceremony held at QE11 Centre in Westminster, London on January 18.
The awards, which are sponsored by The Telegraph, were presented after a full day at the Fine & Country annual conference, where new strategies were revealed to keep the brand at the cutting edge.
Sandra Fernandes, Marketing Manager, and Charles Roberts, Director of Fine & Country Lisbon, received the award on stage.
“We are elated to be recognised for our hard work and dedication over the past year. This award is a culmination of our efforts throughout the last 12 months and a symbol of our commitment to excellence within the property industry,” said Charles Roberts, Managing Partner of Fine & Country Lisbon.
Nuno Durão, also a Managing Partner, echoed Charles Roberts’ comment and reinforced the view that being allied to the powerful internationally recognised luxury real estate brand of Fine & Country was a cornerstone of their company’s success.
