Entrepreneur of the Year entrant – Angi Cooney
Angi Cooney’s business has been named the best in its sector in the UK despite being a small independent competing against large chains.
The mum of two set up estate agency C residential in 2003 after having her two daughters and now has a team of six staff.
In 2022 C residential won the title of Overall Best Estate Agent of the Year for the UK and it also won the Overall Guild Member of the Year out of more than 800 branches.
|“From the very start the aim of the company was to offer not just a good service but a level of service that surpassed clients’ expectations,” said Angi.
“Since opening the company I have expanded into a lettings business which was also recognised on a national scale, winning Silver for the UK in at the ESTAS.
“I lead from the front and always put the wellbeing of my staff first.
“The company is a community champion for Rugeley, where we are based, and we are extremely proud to put Rugeley and Staffordshire well and truly on the map.”
Angi added: “I firmly believe in supporting our local community and believe that with leadership, foresight and a desire to provide the best in everything from technology to best practice, the company stands head and shoulders above not only our competitors but also our peers on the UK stage.”
Angi leads her team in community work including charity fundraising, helping to create a community garden for Rugeley and organising Christmas celebrations for more than a decade.
Now Angi is in the running in the Entrepreneur of the Year category of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.
