Commenting on the result, Choice CEO Stephen Moore said he was incredibly proud of all winners and finalists.

“There is a lot of great work taking place throughout the Choice network and I’m thrilled to see this being recognised.

“I know there a lot of quiet achievers throughout our network as well and this does not go unnoticed.

“As our industry continues to grow and mature, our brokers are focusing on business strategies and quality processes that are not only seeing them excel, but which are delivering outstanding customer experiences.

“Congratulations to all Choice brokers for continuing to raise the bar – we are immensely proud,” he concluded.
