The gathering of architects, interior designers, developers and estate agents from across Europe took place at the London Marriott Hotel and was sponsored by The Telegraph and Emirates Airlines. The European Property Awards are part of the long established International Property Awards, currently in their 25th year. The awards rank amongst the most prestigious and sought after awards in the real estate world and the award winners’ logo is recognised as a symbol of excellence throughout the global property industry.

Judging is carried out through a meticulous process involving a panel of over 70 experts covering every aspect of the property business as well as several members of the House of Lords and the Earl of Liverpool who is the chairman of the awards.

Unfortunately, on this occasion, Home Hunts were not able to attend the awards as they are currently in the middle of launching their service in Spain but one of the two founders of the company, Tim Swannie had this to say “Fantastic news! We couldn’t be more proud! We have a brilliant team and everyone works so hard on the site and the service we offer. It is a real honour to compete with some of the biggest names in the industry and to be awarded the best website award again is just brilliant! It has been a challenging year this year, this is a huge pat on the back for the whole team and a cause for celebration”

Home Hunts competed against some of the best property professionals in Europe for the website to be judged top of the best website category. Tim went on to say ” We are constantly looking for ways to improve our website and we invest a great deal of time and money into development and marketing because savvy property buyers today do the majority of their initial searching online. We will be announcing some exciting new features on the site next year and launching a new online magazine too due to client demand so we are looking forward to that very much. As well as our team of property professionals, we have a wonderful support team in France and the UK who spend a huge amount of time dedicated to the design, administration and promotion of the website, this award is really for them”
