Relocation Agent Network, a UK affiliation of Cartus, was honoured to receive three prestigious awards at a recent industry awards dinner in London.
Relocation Agent Network was crowned 2017 Best Estate Agency Supplier and also won the Gold award in the large Estate Agency Supplier category. In addition Relocation Agent Network’s Managing Director Richard Tucker was recognized with a special award for his Outstanding Contribution to Estate Agency.
The EA Masters Awards Dinner was held on Friday 22 September at the O2’s InterContinental hotel, London. The event was organised by Property Academy, the UK estate agency’s pre-eminent business improvement and events company.
The 2017 Best Estate Agency Supplier award was given to Relocation Agent Network, after they received the Gold Award in the large supplier category and had the highest number of votes from estate agency supplier customers, via an online poll by Property Academy.
The Outstanding Contribution to Estate Agency award recognizes Richard Tucker’s contribution to UK estate agency in a career that has spanned almost 40 years. Tucker started with New Forest agency and surveyors practice Jackson & Jackson in 1979 working his way up to become an equity partner eight years later. Following a spell at General Accident, Tucker joined Cartus in 1996 initially as Supplier Manager. He became managing director of Relocation Agent Network in 2002 and since then he has been instrumental in the growth of Relocation Agent Network and its focus on customer service, innovation and quality excellence.
