Each year these awards are fiercely competed for and Ocean Estates strives to maintain its level of success. With this in mind, it is even more commendable that Ocean Estates has accomplished the remarkable feat of winning Best Spanish Estate Agent for the eighth consecutive year.

In 2004 Ocean won more awards than any previous year, including five star for Best Spanish Property and four stars in Best South African Estate Agent and Best South African Development categories.

The awards were initially held in the member’s dining room in the ‘House Of Commons’ parliament building and this prestigious event soon outgrew the capacity of the famous member’s dining room. Founder, President and Chairman of Ocean Estates, Alasdair Macdonald commented, “I am thrilled that Ocean Estates has won so many awards at the 2005 Bentley International Property Awards. It is testament to our continued hard work and success as an Estate Agency in Spain and South Africa, with increasing competition in the market year on year”. Over the last eleven years the International Property Awards have been presented to those who demonstrate excellence in the property industry. The board of judges are independent experts and the awards help validate the professionalism and high standards that Ocean Estates continuously strives to maintain.

Ocean Estates’ first entry into the Homes Overseas Awards resulted in two top prizes – Gold awards for Best Spanish Apartment and Best South Africa Development the Bronze award.

These awards, personally judged by a professional architect and surveyor, are sponsored by top companies: The Daily Telegraph and British Airways.
