Engel & Völkers’ Rewards & Recognition 2014

Each year there is much expectation amongst all the Engel & Völkers Southern Africa Sales advisors of what the annual R&R will be like – where will the venue be, who will be the nominees, who will be the winners, and most valued, who will be the top agent in the country?
This year proved no different with the excitement culminating in an elegant function being held, for the first time in Potchefstroom, on the 3rd of July.  'The choice to hold the function in this city should not have been a surprise to anyone, as the office had many nominations and received most of the prizes' said Craig Hutchison, CEO Engel & Völkers Southern Africa.
In his welcoming address to all the attendees Craig shared the message that this past year has been a very successful one, for not only E&V SA, but also for the group internationally. Results from across the world, showed increased sales and a positive upward trend, which no doubt is a direct reflection of the excellent on-going training our agents receive at our international training academy, the incredible marketing tools at the agents' disposal, and the positive leadership by our license partners. 
All those present thoroughly enjoyed the interaction of meeting colleagues from around the country, as the top agents realise that networking is the key to their success.
During the dinner Craig then proudly congra-tulated all the top achievers in their respective categories. “It is always a privilege to be able to acknowledge these top achievers as they motivate each other and also are such a wonderful inspiration to existing agents and to new rookies in the business.”
The nominees in every category were mentioned and the winner announced, and amidst applause all received their performance certificates.

Craig concluded the prize giving by informing all those present that “The 2015 R&R will be hosted in the Mother City, Cape Town and we expect a large turnout with many new faces being nominated due to the respective agents from across the country already showing remarkable achievements. They have picked up the gauntlet to challenge the other offices, and a healthy competitive spirit is currently visible. Our top performers are very motivated in realising they can achieve even greater results.”
Without much ado, the fun part of the evening then started, with music, dancing, and the excitement of mingling with and congratulating the prize winners.
Till Cape Town 2015 where our top property sales advisors will once again be proudly acknowledged!
