Best Estate Agency Guide Awards

You might remember from our previous posts and our newsletter we spoke about our inclusion in the Best Estate Agent Guide for 2018. The guide is made up of the best 20% of estate agents in the country and then divided into categories for the Awards. The guide has been put together following the biggest ever study of the British estate agency industry.

Supported by both the Property Academy and RightMove the project was able to gain access to an unprecedented amount of data which added great insight, both qualitative and quantitative, into the everyday workings of the property industry.

As the leading independent estate agent in Beaconsfield we were delighted to be included in the guide, however in September we were nominated for an award in the EA Masters event.

Out of over 25,000 agents registered with RightMove, only 5,125 (20%) were eligible for the awards. The awards were not entered into, they were judged purely on the data received from the study. The Ashington Page Lettings team were awarded a ‘Highly Rated’ certification putting us in the top 20% of letting agents in the whole country!

The rating was based on 50% mystery shopper feedback from both telephone and email enquiries; whereby the mystery shopper would claim to be either a landlord asking for information or a valuation, and/or they could claim to be a tenant searching for a property. Obviously we had NO idea who these magical, mystery shoppers were – in fact they may even have found their way onto our mailing list so, if you’re reading… THANK YOU!!

The other 50% of the rating was based on RightMove data with judgement being made based on categories including the quality of photos, floor plans and instructions tracking./p>

We are delighted and very proud of the lettings department for their achievements. It just goes to show that when you work hard and efficiently you get the recognition you deserve. Our busy lettings team are always on hand to take your enquiries so, if you’re a potential/existing landlord or a tenant and would like to talk through your options make sure you drop us an email or call us on 01494 685 518. Remember you can always keep in touch by following us on Facebook and Twitter.
