MCEWAN Fraser Legal has beaten off some of the world’s leading estate agents to scoop the most coveted award in the UK estate agency sector.

The Edinburgh-headquartered firm became the first Scottish estate agent to win the prestigious Sunday Times Best Estate Agent in the UK Award when it was presented with a trio of gongs at a lavish award ceremony at the Lancaster Hotel in London on Friday 6th December.

In addition to being named the Best Estate Agent in the UK, McEwan Fraser Legal also won the Best Innovation in the UK and the Best Estate Agent in Scotland awards, from over 5000 entrants.

The firm’s success is all the more remarkable, considering that it launched amidst one of the country’s worst recessions just four years ago. Yet, despite the unprecedented challenges faced by the housing sector, McEwan Fraser Legal has been instrumental in making a positive impact on the housing market in Central Scotland, selling hundreds of homes every month throughout 2013 and employing some 105 staff.

Commending the firm on its achievements, award judges noted that “McEwan Fraser Legal is a progressive company which shines like a beacon north of the border”.

Commenting on the awards, McEwan Fraser Legal chief executive, Ken McEwan, said: “This is a huge achievement and just recognition of what we have accomplished in the Scottish housing marketplace using determination and fresh, innovative ways to sell homes in Scotland.

“For a Scottish estate agent to win this award, in light of the competition from world-renowned estate agents and the big London agencies, speaks volumes about what we’re capable of in Scotland. We have raised the standard of estate agency practice in Scotland and the UK and restored confidence to sellers.”
