One of the newest members of the Plymouth Area Property Professionals Association (PAPPA) is in the running for a top industry award.

Plymouth Block Management, who joined PAPPA in January this year, has been shortlisted in two categories in the 2018 Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) Awards.

The company, based at Queen Anne’s Battery, is among the finalists in the Smaller Managing Agent of the Year category of the annual awards, which celebrates excellence and exceptional achievement by the UK’s leading residential agents.

Jim Kelly, the firm’s accounts manager, has also been nominated in the Unsung Hero category in recognition of his hard work and dedication throughout the past year.

Plymouth Block Management, which offers a range of property management services, that can be tailored to their clients’ requirements, is a previous winner of the Smaller Managing Agent of the year taking the honour in 2017.

The winners of this year’s awards will be revealed at special presentation dinner on Friday 6th July to be held in London.

Ben Dreher, Chairman of PAPPA, said: “Congratulations to everyone at Plymouth Block Management and I know all PAPPA members will join me in wishing them good luck in the finals.

“PAPPA and its members are continually raising the bar for property industry excellence and recognition in sector awards of this type is a good example of that.”

Dr Nigel Glen, ARMA CEO, said: “The quality of entries has been outstanding, setting the standard for companies that wish to be recognised for achieving excellence, best practice in their field, and ultimately leading to the improvement in the lives of leaseholders.”

As the leading trade association for those companies in England and Wales managing private residential leasehold blocks of flats, ARMA promotes high standards of leasehold management by providing advice, training and guidance to its members.

The association also produces guidance materials for leaseholders and residents’ management companies whilst campaigning for improvements in legislation governing the leasehold sector.
