Estate Agency is changing.
And those changing it are growing.
Local Property Agent – Self-Employed
Reporting to Head of Local Property Agents

You will be responsible for providing face to face valuations using a variety of skills including your expert local knowledge, industry and market knowhow, and vast valuation experience, in order to gain the client’s instruction for a 12-month marketing contract for a transparent, fixed fee – you will not however be required to undertake viewing scheduling, offer negotiation or sales progression as we feel these vital functions should be carried out by our crack, dedicated, central team who are on hand seven days a week to help – just like an estate agency should.
