JANE GARDNER BLAZES A TRAIL FOR HIGH STANDARDS OF SERVICE IN RESIDENTIAL LETTING AGENCY
Jane Gardner, the Lettings Director of Sewell & Gardner, Rickmansworth has successfully completed the NFoPP & ARLA Level 4 Certificate in Residential Letting & Property Management qualification and is now one of the most highly qualified residential letting agents in Britain. NFoPP (National Federation of Property Professionals) Awarding Body & ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) introduced the Level 4 Certificate in November 2011 as part of its programme to raise standards of professionalism in residential letting agency through professional qualifications.
ARLA Managing Director, Ian Potter said: “Jane is in the vanguard of those working residential letting agents who recognise the value of professional qualifications, and who have the sound working knowledge both of the job and of best practice, to succeed. Her commitment to high standards is evidenced by her achievement of this higher level qualification.” Jane is the trainer for her lettings staff at Sewell & Gardner, including her graduate and apprentice programmes, and has been a Fellow of ARLA since 2004.
Jane said “I truly believe in the value of these qualifications and what passing these exams means to our clients. All of our customers can be assured of the very best and most up-to-date legal advice from the staff here, which is of exceptional importance in this ever changing world of lettings legislation. There are huge consequences to getting it wrong, including criminal prosecution and large fines so I am not taking any chances with the advice given to Sewell & Gardner clients. I am also 100% convinced that all letting agents should be qualified, not just one person in each office, or worse still, none at all.”
