A business in Bridgwater has made the shortlist of a national award seeing off far bigger companies in the process. 
Hollands Curtis & Evans offer estate agency services across Bridgwater. 
The company has made it to the final selection in The Negotiator magazine’s Best Estate Agent in the South West category.
The Negotiator Awards is the a prestigious and popular awards scheme in residential property with more entrants and more winners than any other scheme in this sector.  
All finalists submitted an exhaustive Negotiator Awards application which was then reviewed by an industry-expert judging panel.
Richard Curtis said: “Initially I had my doubts about entering as we’re a small company and I know that these awards attract some very big national firms.
“Following a chat with the team I thought why not? And we decided to have a bash.
“We’re good at what we do, offer honest, down to earth expertise and work really hard for all of our clients and I think that’s what the judges recognised.
“We’re the only estate agent and property management company to have made the shortlist in this area so we’re really chuffed. 
“We celebrated the news with a few clients past and present and are looking forward to the awards evening.”
The results will be announced by the comedian Jimmy Carr at a ceremony in Park Lane, London, on Tuesday, October 31.
