The morning tea was in recognition of the Invercargill real estate firm receiving the best all round office award as part of this year’s Professionals Company Awards. Mr Irving said it was a performance-based award with wide-ranging criteria including sales and number of listings. The Invercargill office had won the best or top office award six times out of the past eight years, he said. There are about 55 Professionals offices throughout New Zealand.
