Colbert & Co Estate Agents recently won The Cork County Estate Agent of the Year 2017 at The Cork Business Awards 2017 which took place in the Clayton Hotel, Cork in front of more than 500 attendees.
The awards are in their 11th year and are the largest business awards in Cork and are hosted by Business Cork magazine.
Publisher of Business Cork, Michael Mulcahy said: “Colbert & Co have been in business for over 30 years and the business is led by James Colbert and his Team and they are one of East Cork’s fastest growing Estate Agents with an outstanding reputation for being personal in their approach to their clients and ensuring a seamless service when you engage with them. They are a highly innovative and ambitious business that has lots of future growth plans and it is a fitting recognition of the business and the Team to win the coveted award this year’’
Colbert & Co Estate agents were also nominated for Best Customer Service at the National Go Awards which took place in The RDS, Dublin earlier this year and James Colbert (Managing Director) says it is all down to his staff and clients.
“Although we have been involved with property for many years, we are relatively new to sales and only on the Main Street 4 years. We were up against some really well known and established agents so we are thrilled to get the acknowledgment. My staff are amazing and are constantly complimented on not only their friendly manner but more importantly their professionalism,” he said.
Kate Colbert is the Letting manager and follows James in keeping the family name front of house. Aoife Lawler is the Finance manager and has been with Colbert & Co throughout their transition from a property management company to now one of the fastest growing estate agencies in East Cork. She is joined by Saoirse O’Malley who assists James with sales and James feels is one of the reasons their service has excelled over the past 12 months.
“Historically one of the most stressful events of your life is purchasing or selling your home. We have put everything in place to ensure that we take the stress out of this process. For anyone who has been t our office they will know what we mean as it begins the instant you walk in. if you haven’t been to our office then I strongly recommend you do so, we make a fantastic coffee,” added James.
The Cork agent of the year was a tough category with plenty of well-known business including Angel & Vokler of Kinsale, Sherry Fitzgerald, Michael Piggot of Carrigaline and Adrianna Hegarty in Midleton.
