(LONDON) (Dec. 10, 2013) ISLANDS REALTY received a five star Americas Property Award for BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT FLORIDA from the International Property Awards sponsored by Virgin Atlantic and Yamaha. ISLANDS REALTY competed against a number of real estate professionals in FLORIDA/USA to receive this recognition. The finest real estate agents and property consultants from the United States, Canada, South America, Central America and the Caribbean gathered at the glamorous Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Friday, December 6th to attend a glittering gala and hear the long-anticipated results of the International Property Awards regional competition.
Dermot OBrien, Broker/Owner of Islands Realty said “It is such an honor to have won this prestigious award and to have been given the distinction of Best Real Estate Agent in Florida. Islands Realty is a boutique real estate brokerage that is just 3 years old and specializes in Singer Island luxury oceanfront condominiums, waterfront properties and country club homes. I’m excited to think about what’s next for my agency and how far we can go in the next 3 years.”
The Americas Property Awards are broken down into four geographical regions: Canada, the Caribbean, the United States, and Central and South America. Awards were given out for each region’s most exceptional real estate agencies, lettings agencies, property consultancies, and individual real estate agents. The winners were announced as either a ‘Highly Commended’ or ‘Five Star’ winner and presented with special plaques during the awards ceremony.
The Five Star winners were placed under further examination and just one winner per category from each of the four geographical regions was named a regional winner, also known as an international nominee. The regional winners qualified to be evaluated against other regional winners from Asia Pacific, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the UK to find the ‘World’s Best’ for each category. With the Americas Property Awards hosted in conjunction with the International Property Awards, the Americas international nominees only had to wait until the end of the evening for the highly anticipated announcements of the International Property Awards global winners.
Stuart Shield, president of the International Property Awards, said, “It was an honour to present the Americas real estate winners with their well-deserved awards. These agents are assisting clients in making intelligent property investments, helping homeowners make a move to greener pastures, and even fulfilling many dreams of first-time home ownership.”
