Northamptonshire SME Business Awards judges have recognised the professionalism and commitment of Ausra Uzukauskaite again this year.
Her businesses, Amber Properties and Amber Renovations, are finalists for the Enterprising Business of the Year category and Ausra is a finalist for Businesswoman of the Year.
In 2017 Ausra was runner up as Young Business Person of the Year.
Ausra says: “Everyone who has started their own business knows that you need absolute commitment to succeed. Sometimes it’s easy to forget what you have already achieved or how far you have come, and that’s why awards like this are so important.
“To make an award submission you really need to take stock of what’s important and what makes your business unique. I am personally committed to providing outstanding service to my landlords, investors and tenants. It means a lot of hard work and dedication, but that’s why I have such great clients.”
Amber Properties was established by Ausra in 2012, building on everything she had learnt at Hamiltons Residential Lettings. When the owner retired, Ausra decided it was time to set up her own business.
Ausra and Amber Properties have since gone from strength to strength. In the last year a sister company, Amber Renovations, has been launched and new premises on Wellingborough Road in Northampton have opened, along with impressive new websites to showcase the range of services available.
The first full-time employee at Amber Properties is working towards the successful completion of her Business Administration apprenticeship and has just been promoted to Property Manager, helping to support the business’s future growth.
The Award results will be announced at a celebration dinner at Northampton County Cricket Club on Thursday 25 October.
