It’s CHRISTMAS! (almost)

It’s CHRISTMAS! (almost)

4th Dec, 2017

So, with only three weeks to go until Christmas – and before we get fully into the festive spirit – we thought we would reflect on 2017 and what a great year we have had here at Applegate properties!

Well, where to start? We have been shortlisted for numerous awards this year, which continues to surprise and amaze us. But our biggest highlight and achievement this year has to be when we were shortlisted in three categories for the Negotiator Awards – for the third year in a row – and then going on to win both Gold and Silver! We couldn’t have been prouder of all of the team’s hard work to be acknowledged with such a prestigious accolade.

2017 was also Applegate’s 7th birthday – time really does fly when you’re having fun! It’s been great to see the team and business grow over the years, and we now have a staggering 10 members of staff – and are currently on the lookout for more to join us! You may be perfect for the role we are recruiting for – take a look at it here.

Being proud sponsors of this year’s Honley Show has to be another one of our favourite moments. We loved being part of such a large local event, and it was something that our MD Amy Wray held close to her heart as she competed – way back in 2007 – as a novice show jumper. Even though it rained for most of the day, we were delighted to have our own stand, raise lots of money for The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and even meet a local celeb – the Holme Valley Mayor!

Throughout the year we have continuously tried to support getting more young people into work with our apprentice scheme, and give something back through our various charity fundraisers for The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice. We also became the 99th member to join the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust’s ‘Fight Club’.

And it wouldn’t have been a proper year at Applegate without our many different competitions, including our most recent pumpkin carving challenge.

Finally, we would like to say a massive thank you to YOU! Without your continued support, testimonials and kind referrals we wouldn’t be where we are today. And we hope that all our advice over the year has helped some of you out in your hour of need.

On that note, we are one of the few estate and lettings agents that are staying open over the Xmas period, expect Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, so if you need anything at all pop in and see us anytime!
