Relocation expert Quintessential Relocation Consultants has won two awards at the Association of Relocation Professionals Awards 2014.

The company, which was founded in Guernsey in 2010 and now works across the Channel Islands, won both the property finder award for its work with private clients and the destination services provider award for services delivered in Guernsey and Jersey on behalf of corporate clients and international relocation management companies.

"We were honoured to have been nominated for two awards for the second successive year but to win them both has exceeded our expectations," said Jo Stoddart, Founder and Managing Director of Quintessential.

"We are a small team competing against some of the UK's best-known property finders and long-established destination service providers so to get this recognition for our work is a real accolade and highlights the quality of service provided to our clients. It also shines spotlight on Guernsey and Jersey, which can only be good for the islands." Judges were particularly impressed by Quintessential promotional material which they said 'illustrated the passion behind the services they provide'.

Mrs Stoddart said the aim of the businesses was to ensure its clients can relocate and enjoy their new life in the Channel Islands as quickly as possible.

"We are a small team and a relative newcomer compared to other relocation service providers. We hope this award will provide further opportunities for us to provide services and take the pressure off both corporate and private clients planning to relocate to the Channel Islands," she said.
