It’s a valiant double victory for team Verto as Verto Homes snags two top awards at the prestigious UK Property Awards 2017 last Friday night in Central London: Best Residential Development Cornwall for Island Reach and Best Developer Website for the Verto Homes website.
Double trouble: Co-founders Richard Pearce and Tom Carr hold their awards, surrounded by investors and friends of Verto Homes
It’s a significant win, as Island Reach was the first Zero Carbon Smart Home development in the UK and also the company’s first project of its kind.
‘It’s our flagship development, and a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into it to make it according to our zero-carbon vision. But having stuck to our guns and come out the other side, to be awarded the Best Residential Development in Cornwall is really rewarding’, says Verto Homes Co-founder Richard Pearce.
Co-founder Tom Carr, who led the build of the Verto Homes website alongside digital agency Ruin, cites its clean, aesthetically pleasing design and depth of content as the factors that helped them win. ‘We are different, and we have to embrace that – so our website has to look and feel like us and also answer all of the questions our customers might have: like how the technology works and how this will affect them personally. So I like to think that an award for our website is also an award for our ethos and logic.’
Both Richard and Tom express a sense of pride in the whole team for making these projects happen, and say the awards provide further (clean, green and figurative) fuel for Verto’s goals.
