Klemm Real Estate, which has offices in Litchfield County, has received an Americas Property award for Five Star Best Real Estate Agency Connecticut from the International Property awards.

The awards are sponsored in part by Yamaha Music.

Klemm competed against a number of real estate professionals in the United States to receive the recognition.

The nominees, an elite group of real estate professionals from the United States, Canada, South America, Central America and the Caribbean, attended the awards gala at the JW Marriott Los Angeles in September.

The awards were presented in the presence of Lord Best from the British Parliament's House of Lords.

Awards were given out for each region's most exceptional real estate agencies, lettings agencies, property consultancies, and individual real estate agents.

The winners were announced as either a "Highly Commended" or "Five Star" winner and presented with plaques during the ceremony.

The Five Star winners were placed under further examination and just one winner per category from each of the four geographical regions was named a regional winner, also known as an international nominee.

The regional winners qualified to be evaluated against other regional winners from Asia Pacific, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the United Kingdom to find the "World's Best" for each category.

The Americas Property Awards were hosted in conjunction with the International Property Awards, so the Americas international nominees only had to wait until the end of the evening for the announcements of the International Property Awards global winners.

"We are very honored to be among this select group of leading international real estate companies yet again," said Graham Klemm of Klemm Real Estate.
