Why use an agent on the Best Estate Agents Guide?

We are delighted to have once again been named in the Best Estate Agents Guide. This means that in an independent review of UK estate agents, we have come out in the top 20% of estate agents. We’re delighted with this achievement and proud of the effort from our team but what does it mean to you the customer?

First things first, what is the Best Estate Agents Guide?

The Best Estate Agents Guide is a website for sellers and landlords to help them find the best agents in their area. It lists the top 20% of estate agents, following an independent assessment of over 15,000 UK estate agencies for sales and lettings.

You can check the guide out here- https://www.eamasters.co.uk/beag24/ Simply pop in your postcode and you can see how the agents in your area performed. Remember, only the top 20% of agents make the guide so not every estate agent will show, just the ones at the top of their game!

So, how are the winners decided?

Agents are automatically entered into the marking process, meaning that no agent gets the opportunity to gain an unfair advantage as every agent is judged on the same set of metrics and a mystery shop. Agents are judged on the below points and the guide is formulated from the results.

  • Market share
  • Percentage of properties withdrawn from the market.
  • Percentage of property transactions that fall-through before exchange.
  • Time taken to sell or let subject to contract.
  • Time taken to progress to exchange or let.
  • Asking price & achieved price.
  • Price reductions.
  • Customer experience through mystery shopping.
  • Quality of agent’s website.

Why should you choose an agent featured in the guide? 

The metrics above are chosen with the customer in mind. If you are looking for an agent, the above are things that you might want to know but aren’t easily accessible by the public. If you choose an agent from the guide, you can rest assured, they have performed well on the above and are likely to be able to give you the level of service you desire. Ultimately it can save you a lot of research and put you in safe hands with an agent who has proved they can deliver results. Sounds like a no brainer, right?!
