A BASINGSTOKE estate agent is celebrating double success after being honoured at an awards ceremony.

Gascoigne-Pees, based in Winchester Street, Top of Town, was awarded gold for both sales and lettings at the ESTAS awards.

Nationally, the firm’s parent company Countrywide came out on top winning the Best Large Estate Agency Group award.

The event was held on Friday, 10 May.

Nic Austen, sales manager, was delighted with the win for sales for the Southern region, but Chris Shelton, lettings manager, was even more pleased for his win, having been runner-up three times in recent years.
