Sort Legal Team Leader Shortlisted for Prestigious British Conveyancing Awards

A senior executive at a leading Derby law firm has been shortlisted for the prestigious Conveyancing Support Team Member of the Year award at this year’s British Conveyancing awards.

Martyna Kisiel, senior client inception executive in the new business team at Sort Legal, has been recognised for her outstanding contribution to the business.

Martyna originally joined Sort Legal’s sister company Sort Move in February 2022 where she worked on the estate agency side and gained an in-depth knowledge of the firm’s onboarding system. This enabled her to appreciate the portal from both estate agents' and clients' viewpoints and understand how it serves clients effectively.

The initial point of contact in Sort Legal’s new business team, Martyna guides clients through complexities with onboarding tasks and creates an experience where every client feels understood and supported in their home-moving journey.

She plays a pivotal role in task allocation, mentoring, and process improvements and her work has result in the firm achieving a 95% call answering rate under one minute.

Martyna also demonstrates leadership and mentoring skills, strengthened by her participation in an ILM leadership and management course.

The British Conveyancing Awards were established to bring together industry leaders and recognise excellence and celebrate the outstanding achievements of firms and organisations that excel in the field.

Now in their fifth year, the awards showcase the dedication and innovation of professionals within the conveyancing industry.  The 2024 awards ceremony is taking place on 12 March at 8 Northumberland Avenue in London.

Commenting on being shortlisted as a finalist, Martyna Kisiel said:

“It is a real honour to be recognised as a finalist for the Team Member of the Year award. I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the exceptional work done at Sort Legal and to be a part of a team dedicated to delivering top-quality legal services to our clients.

“Wishing all the finalist the very best of luck- we look forward to attending the awards and celebrating the achievements.”

Kevin Tunnicliffe, CEO of Sort Legal, added:

“Martyna has been an amazing addition to the Sort Legal team. Her previous experience working with estate agents on the Sort Move side has been invaluable and quite simply ‘she gets it’.”

“She fully understands the objectives set and takes huge satisfaction from the results that she is generating, so much so that she is now imparting her experience on the rest of the new business team – to great effect.

“The understanding and pride that she demonstrates in her role, coupled with the care she has for the clients and the passion that she has for the industry will undoubtedly lead to a big career in the conveyancing industry for Martyna.”

Rhodri Howells, Head of Legal Practice at Sort Legal, added:

“Martyna has worked on the other side of the fence managing the relationships between estate agents and law firms and has brought the skills she developed in that area to her role within Sort Legal.

She has a passion for great client service and understands the interplay between the client, the introducer and Sort Legal. This makes her a great role model and someone we have come to depend on, not only for the quality of her work, but also for making sure that the rest of the team knows those relationships.”
