Clear Property were thrilled to scoop an award at last night’s Exeter Living Awards in the Property Category against strong competition.
The Exeter Living Awards are the business highlight of the city. Celebrating the best of Exeter, these are the most prestigious, most tightly contested Awards with the greatest number of local companies involved.
The judges stated, “Excellent year for clever, innovative operators that have performed really strongly. Decent civic activity too.”
2017 was a stand out year for Clear Property for so many reasons, here are seven:
1) CELEBRATED TEN YEARS IN BUSINESS
Kelly Forrester set up Clear Property from home in 2007 and in just ten years, Kelly’s determination, drive and vision has grown Clear Property to become an award winning and innovative estate agency located in the heart of Exeter’s beautiful Southernhay. In 2017 Clear Property rebranded and Kelly became the first female estate agent business owner to join the Exeter Estate Agents Association.
2) DELIVERED A ‘NEW AGE OF ESTATE AGENCY’
We launched a NEW service based on customer feedback. A completely transparent service with clear and effective communication – no more commission fees, one fixed price payable only when the property is sold.
Offering three different sales packages, each incorporates different services and marketing solutions for one fixed price; giving our customers the freedom to choose the package most suited to their needs and budget.
3) HIGHLY RATED FOR BOTH SALES AND LETTINGS IN THE BEST ESTATE AGENT GUIDE 2018
This award isn’t one that we entered, but one that was awarded by The Property Academy, who embarked on the biggest ever study of the British estate agency industry and puts Clear Property in the top 20% of estate agents in the UK.
4) BROUGHT CUSTOMER’S HOUSES TO LIFE IN 3D
We were the first and only estate agent in Exeter to invest in brand new, cutting-edge technology to bring customer’s homes to life in 3D. Using the ground breaking technology behind the Matterport Camera, we are able to provide our customers with a fully immersive, interactive, online experience, which gives potential buyers, or tenants, the realistic experience of actually walking through a property, without the need to be there.
5) RAISED FUNDS FOR AGE UK EXETER
Clear Property organised the annual Halloween Fun Run, a local community event, now in its third year. Held in Cowick Barton Playing fields in St. Thomas, with nearly 400 young runners taking part in a 1K Toddler Run and a 3K Kids run. There was also a fancy dress competition, BBQ, refreshments, inflatables, storytelling and entertainment. We raised additional funds by holding cake sales and sponsoring Age UK Exeter’s 10K run and Easter Egg hunt. Over the past few years we have raised £20,000 for the charity.
6) WON MORE AWARDS
Clear Property won the Express & Echo’s ‘Corporate Responsibility Award’ and also received a bronze award at the national Negotiator Awards in the ‘Community Champion of The Year’ category. Both awards recognise our charity work, delivering the Halloween Fun Run and raising funds for Age UK Exeter.
7) INNOVATED AND INVESTED IN MORE NEW TECHNOLOGY
We embraced more new technology to provide our customers with increased flexibility and choice, with the option to book viewings and make offers on our website 24/7. We also partnered with Pattinsons Auctions, offering an additional solution to help customers sell their home, at no further cost.
