Elizabeth Guy from J R hopper & Co in the Yorkshire Dales is celebrating after being awarded Relocation Agent Network’s Negotiator of the Year Award 2012. The award recognises the individual excellence of one person in one Relocation Agent Network member estate agency, acknowledging their ability to continually go above and beyond their daily duties in providing the highest customer service.

The Negotiator of the Year Award, sponsored by TM training and development, was announced at the 19th Annual Relocation Agent Network Conference, held this year at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, in London on Friday 16 November.


Brian Carlisle said, “J R Hopper & Co are delighted that Elizabeth has been named Negotiator of the Year 2012. She is an invaluable member of the Hoppers team, continually demonstrating the highest standards of customer service. We are proud that she has been recognised by Relocation Agent Network at their recent Annual Conference. It has capped a phenomenal year for us, as we have also picked up the Best Agent in Yorkshire Region and the best Customer  Relocation award for our categoryl” 


This year’s Conference officially launched Relocation Agent Network, formerly known as Home Sale Network. The network of independent estate agents changed its name to reflect the scope of services that each member offers their customers. No longer just an organisation selling homes, network members are Relocation Agent experts in each of their local areas.


Relocation Agent Network’s Managing Director, Richard Tucker said of the win, “Our Negotiator of the Year Award recognises the high calibre of staff employed by our members. This award is a fantastic accolade for Elizabeth Guy and especially for J R Hopper & Co, who has worked hard to win this accolade.”
