AN ESTATE agency has bagged a number of awards as it grows its presence in the city.
ROK Marsh Estate Agents is fast becoming one of the big names in sales and lettings in Portsmouth and it has recently received the accolades to prove it.
The firm has taken home three awards in the last few months, covering both its sales and lettings sides of the business.
It was named Mortgage Broker of the Year in the 2022-23 South England Awards as a result of the success of its mortgage brokerage arm, RBM Solutions.
The Global 100 Awards, an award that picks the top 100 businesses across the world, named the RBM Solutions the Leading Financial Advisor of the Year for 2023.
On the lettings side of the business, which is led by Danielle Kelly, ROK Marsh won the British Property Association’s Gold Award for Lettings in Portsmouth.
Danielle said: ‘Having taken over the lettings side of ROK Marsh not too long ago, it’s amazing to receive recognition that the company is growing into one of the industry’s best firms for lettings. Hopefully this will boost our presence across Hampshire and put us up there with the top companies in the industry.’
As well as this, managing director Matt Marsh has been interviewed by journalists online and on the radio, featuring on BBC Radio Solent and the Evening Standard, among other news publications, in the last few months.
He believes the success is in part down to launching his networking meetings 10 months ago, where he invites local businesses down to his offices at Gatcombe House in Hilsea.
Around 20 people attend each month to have breakfast and enjoy a 10-minute educational presentation from one of the attendees.
He said: ‘The local business community in Portsmouth is amazing and we try to support each business in the room by giving them some business at least once. As a result we’ve been able to get our name out there and have had plenty of referrals and business come our way too and it’s been a great activity for us in increasing our brand’s visibility.
‘I can’t wait to see where we can take both ROK Marsh and RBM Solutions in the coming months and am so grateful for the support and recognition we’ve received.’
