AIPP Awards 2011: Shortlisted entrants announced!
AIPP Awards 2011 – Sponsored by
Judging of the Awards took place on Thursday with a panel of 11 judges chaired by The Property Ombudsman Christopher Hamer. The judges included professionals from within the international and UK property industries, bringing a mixture of expertise to the panel.
The AIPP’s annual awards look for excellence in customer service and a detailed entry process means that entrants effectively conduct a customer service ‘audit’ on their company. "This was my first time as a judge on the AIPP Awards and I was impressed by how detailed the entries were and how robust the judging process proved to be," says Nigel Lewis, Head of Content at Primelocation.com. "These awards are all about awarding overseas property professionals who are transparent, follow best practice and embrace business ethics - and the judging process reflected that."
As an independent, not-for-profit initiative, the AIPP Awards strive to be the benchmark for excellence in the international property industry. The presentation of this year’s Awards will take place within A Place in the Sun Live exhibition at London’s Earls Court. A Place in the Sun: Home or Away’s Jonnie Irwin will announce the winners in front of a consumer audience on the show’s main stage.
