Progressive Building Society has a local history of providing savings and mortgage products and have funded local home ownership for over a century.
Throughout the years, this society has recognised the vital role that estate agents play in helping home-movers and first time buyers purchase their own properties.
It is for this reason that the Progressive Building Society is proud to be involved in this years’ Belfast Telegraph Property Awards by sponsoring the Residential Estate Agency of the Year category.
Chief executive of the Progressive Building Society, Darina Armstrong, said: “Estate agents can be the first point of contact for those who are looking to buy or sell their home.
“Their knowledge and expertise of the housing market is a great source of information for us as we seek to provide our members with the most relevant and up to date information, enabling them to make informed choices.
“Moving home can be one of the most stressful times in your life and, working closely with estate agents, we want to make this process as smooth as possible.”
Darina highlighted that through the company’s partnership with Ulster University they are aware that estate agents are delivering detailed analysis of the housing market, helping produce the Northern Ireland Quarterly House Price Index, a helpful source of information for buyers and sellers.
She added: “As the only locally-owned mortgage provider, Progressive Building Society will continue to work with our partners in the property sector, both our mortgage brokers and local estate agents, to help local people in the home-buying process.
“We strive to ensure our products are easy to understand and our customers receive the support they need at every stage of their mortgage application.
“We work hard to meet the needs of all our customers, whatever their circumstances, and fully understand the need to be flexible. Looking forward, we will continue investing in our 12 branches making sure we meet the evolving requirements of local customers and that we provide the best possible service.
“Progressive Building Society is proud to sponsor the Belfast Telegraph Property Awards’ Residential Estate Agency of the Year category. We look forward to the event and wish all applicants the very best of luck.”
