East Midlands Agent of the Year win for Pygott & Crone
Lincolnshire estate agent, Pygott & Crone, continues to sweep the board as it secures Agent of the Year at last nights (1 October) East Midlands Property Awards.

“The East Midlands Property Awards are highly regarded in the region and recognise excellence in the industry and I’m really pleased not only for Pygott & Crone but also that Lincolnshire has received this acknowledgment.
“We have big plans to continue expanding further in the East Midlands, with further office openings to be announced in the New Year, so we are pleased to have this growth as a business recognised.”
This year has been incredibly successful for the firm following a number of multi-million pound sales across the East Midlands. The firm has also been improving its client services with the use of digital portfolios and utilising the latest technology to improve the client experience.
