The best real estate sales year Ash Brown has experienced at One Agency in Orange has led to two wins at the One Agengy Australasian Awards.
"It's a pretty fantastic result considering the times we are living in," Mr Brown said.
Mr Brown said agencies from across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji usually travel to Sydney for the awards but this year and last year they have been held online.
"We got together to see who would be the winner this year not thinking we would be in it," Mr Brown said.
He said the awards are based on sales from the financial year when the Orange agency introduced armchair opens so they could continue selling houses without buyers needing to leave their own homes during lockdown.
