Relocation Agent Network is delighted to have received three awards at this year’s EA Masters Awards Dinner, held on Friday 22 September at the O2’s InterContinental hotel, London.

The Network picked up the Gold in Best Estate Agency Supplier (large category) and then went on to win the overall 2017 Best Estate Agency Supplier Award; and Richard Tucker, Managing Director was presented with a special award for his Outstanding Contribution to Estate Agency.

The black tie evening Awards Dinner was organised by Property Academy and hosted by well-known TV presenter, Gabby Logan, who presented Relocation Agent Network and Richard Tucker with the awards.

The 2017 Best Estate Agency Supplier Award is the most coveted prize that the Property Academy, the UK estate agency’s pre-eminent business improvement and events company, can give to an industry supplier. To determine the winner, nominees had to receive the highest number of votes from estate agency supplier customers, via an online poll by Property Academy.

The Outstanding Contribution to Estate Agency award is a special accolade awarded, this year, to Richard Tucker for his contribution to UK estate agency in a career that has spanned almost 40 years. Richard started with New Forest agency and surveyors practice Jackson & Jackson working his way up to become an equity partner eight years later. He then moved to General Accident in Cardiff where he set up and managed their Corporate Relocation Division. Richard joined Cartus in 1996 as Supplier Manager where he was instrumental in the development of the company’s ISO accreditation programme. Richard became managing director of Relocation Agent Network in 2002. Since then he has been instrumental in the growth of Relocation Agent Network and its focus on customer service, innovation and quality excellence.
