Brazil estate agent uv10 ends 2011 on a high
Another year and another set of silverware for uv10. Having taken Silver for Best Estate Agency 2011 in the OPP (Overseas Property Professional) Awards for Excellence in October, this month the Brazil estate agent scooped a top five star award for Best Estate Agency Website in the Americas Property Awards, in association with Bloomberg Television and Google.
Samantha Gore, Sales Manager for uv10.com, comments, “Awards such as these act as a great platform for communicating our strong values and business ethics to the overseas property buying public. Despite the best efforts of voluntary regulatory bodies, the real estate industry can still be a bit of a minefield for prospective investors and with whom you choose place your trust can be a tough decision. As consistent award winners, uv10 has proved that it is a true expert in the Brazilian property market, a leader in its field and a great example of how to do it properly – the reason we receive countless client referrals.”
uv10 first opened its doors in 2007 and has done everything right from day one. The company is highly selective about what it sells, conducts extensive due diligence into each and every development and both Managers are full-time residents and multiple investors into Brazil – they have “put their money where their mouth is”. Whilst some agents still sell “blind”, having never even visited the sites that they are selling, uv10 offers a refreshing blend of honesty, confidence and knowledge.
