Worcestershire estate agency Nicol & Co. crowned best in UK

Worcestershire-based Nicol & Co., a leading estate agency with offices in Droitwich, Worcester, and Malvern, has clinched the coveted title of Sales Agency of the Year.

The achievement took place at the prestigious Best Estate Agents Guide 2024 awards gala dinner, the highlight of the EA Masters event held in London.

Beating 13,080 estate agency firms nationwide, Nicol & Co. emerged triumphant, highlighting the firm’s excellence within the property sector.

The victory extended beyond this top accolade. Nicol & Co. went on to achieve a hat-trick, securing the titles of “Best Sales” and “Best Sales & Lettings” in the 2-5 Office categories.

Judges recognised the firm’s unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional service, expertise, and industry standards.

Nicol & Co. takes immense pride in its community-centric approach and attributes its exceptional success to the firm’s dedicated team.

Matt Nicol, the firm’s managing director and founder since 2009, said: “Above all, this has been a team effort, and these awards are a tribute to each and every member of our staff who has contributed to our remarkable journey.”

He said that in a challenging property market, Nicol & Co. is distinguishing itself by showcasing genuine sales acumen and an intricate understanding of local market trends.

“”We’re closing property deals for our clients week after week, but to excel in 2023 we must engage at every stage of the process, from instruction to valuation, marketing, and viewings. Going the extra mile for clients is the defining feature of our service.”

The agency’s deep understanding of Worcestershire’s local dynamics and active involvement in the community have been significant factors in their success.

Matt added: “We were also recognised, not just for our results, but also our commitment to the community in which we all live and work.”

In 2021, Nicol & Co. initiated the Community Fund, generously donating £12,000 to Worcestershire community groups within its first year. As of September this year, the Community Fund has surpassed an impressive £50,000, reflecting their unwavering dedication to creating a positive impact across Worcestershire.

Matt explained: “For every property we sell, we offer to donate £100 to the school or local community organisation of our seller’s choice, which has already made a difference to our community.”

Bringing the community together, Nicol & Co. orchestrated the “Big Worcestershire Garage Sale” in June 2023, a successful event that saw 80 households across the county simultaneously decluttering and selling unwanted items.

Furthermore, the agency has launched a captivating social media video campaign named “Why Worcester,” with editions highlighting “Why Droitwich” and “Why Malvern.” The campaign shines a spotlight on local businesses, inviting their founders to share their stories and express their deep connection to their towns and communities.

Matt said: “We are very proud of our record as Worcestershire’s leading independent estate agent which is reflected in the sales and lettings we have achieved for our clients and an increasing number of instructions from developers to market their new projects.

“But equally important to all of us, is our relationship with the places in which we live and work ourselves, and that is why we are very proud of our community involvement and commitment to help local causes.”

The Nicol & Co team celebrated their achievements at the awards presented by television presenters Rachel Riley and Dermot Murnaghan during the EA Masters event, which drew over 1,000 estate agents and industry professionals together to honour the finest businesses and suppliers in the sector.
