Conservative Parliamentary Candidate, Caroline Dinenage today visited RPS Estate Agents in Lee-on-the-Solent to mark its success at the ESTAS Awards.

The ESTAS (Estate Agent Awards) are based on customer feedback and take place across the country each year. RPS earned the Gold Award for the southern region which includes Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

Caroline met the owner of RPS, Mark Rowe and congratulated him on the company's success. She commented:

"It is such good news to hear that this local independent estate agency has gained national recognition when up against its multi-branch competitors.

The company should be very proud to be held in such high regard by its customers; it just shows how small businesses excel in providing the attentive and pro-active service that clients require when selling or buying a property."

The awards were sponsored by Zoopla Property Group.
