A NEW award has been given to Red Squirrel Property Shop — placing them top on the Island for both sales and lettings.

The estate agency has been named as a gold award winning letting agent, just a few months after it was given the sales equivalent accolade.

The awards were given by the British Property Award, which placed them top for the Isle of Wight. The results are based on customer service levels.

The British Property Awards provides agents throughout the UK with an invaluable opportunity to compare the service they provide — measured against the service provided by their local,

regional and national competition.

Agents who go that extra mile and provide outstanding levels of customer service are rewarded with the accolade — as awarded to Red Squirrel — which acts as a beacon to highlight these attributes to their local marketplace.

Red Squirrel business manager Charlie Panayi, said: "We are extremely proud to be awarded this prestigious award. It is nationally recognising us at being the best at what we do here, out of the whole of the Isle of Wight.

"It's important for people to know that whether letting, selling or buying, not all agents are the same and this shows just how good our customer service is."
