LOCAL BUSINESS WINS PRESTIGIOUS PROPERTY INVESTMENT AWARD
Published on 14/09/2015
Keyhole Property Investments, a company based out of Flemington, has been named as Victoria's favourite Buyer's Agent after over 7,000 votes were tallied for the inaugural Investors Choice Awards.
Property investors across the country recently had their say on their ultimate property A-team and revealed the industry’s most trusted professionals, with Keyhole Property Investments coming out on top in Victoria.
More than 7,000 votes were received across 12 categories, including mortgage brokers, buyer’s agents, property managers and property educators with all categories attracting fierce competition. The awards, partnered by homesales.com.au, asked investors to score their nominated businesses across key sectors including level of support, professionalism and value for money.
Average scores across all metrics were used to determine the ultimate winners. Awards were issued on a state-by-state basis – highlighting the localised nature of property investment and the individual services provided in different markets across Australia.
Homesales.com.au general manager Rhett Dallwitz said the initiative will assist investors in finding the most highly recommended businesses across the country. “We live in a reputation-based economy now so testimonials and results speak for themselves,” he said. “We’ve all had positive and negative experiences, regardless of the industry. If you’ve experienced great service and achieved your investment goals, most people within the investor community will want to talk about it to the people they know. “Social media and the internet have made it far easier to research the investment market, but have also made it easier to call out bad service and performance. Reputation is vital.”
Andy Scott, publisher of Smart Property Investment, the awards’ media partner, congratulated the team at Keyhole Property Investment and said the volume of votes received for the awards made it clear that assembling a team of trusted professionals is vital for any successful investor. “With the increased complexity of wealth creation, a property market in a state of flux and ever more demands on investors’ time, these awards will help new and seasoned investors to identify those businesses which have impressed other property buyers and helped them build successful portfolios,” he said. “People looking to invest in property often require experienced professionals and many look to other investors for advice. An Investors Choice Award is the highest form of praise and is a ringing endorsement from investors who have already experienced the ups and downs of the market and have come out on top.”
