National estate agency award win for Yorkshire firm

Fast growing Yorkshire business, ASAP, scooped a national award at the annual Estate Agency event, EA Masters 2020.

As the great and the good of the residential property industry gathered in the virtual venue last week, Pontefract-based ASAP were announced as bronze winners for Best Medium Sized Supplier to the Estate Agency sector.

“We were absolutely bowled over to receive this recognition from the industry.  There were 100’s of entrants and only 9 awards given out so to be seen as one of the best suppliers in the UK is a massive achievement,” says MD Richard Megson

Experienced property professionals, Richard Megson and Tony Hill launched Assured Sale and Progression, aka ASAP, in 2014 with a view to improving the speed in which residential property transactions are processed.

Known in the industry as sales progression, their services are employed by Estate Agents all over the country – and their approach is obviously working as their cases are going through on average seven weeks faster than the industry. This has the knock on effect of reducing fall throughs as ASAP track at around 13.2% vs the 35% market average.

The pandemic has had a significant impact on the business. Pent-up demand following lockdown combined with the stamp duty holiday and people rethinking where and how they live has led to huge surge in activity.

“As overloaded Estate Agents turn to us for support, we have had an unprecedented level of interest. We have had to be fleet of foot to recruit and train up staff to match demand,” adds Mr Megson.

“It has been a very challenging but very exciting time for ASAP. To get this award now is a real accolade for the team after all their hard work.”
