Find out why it could make or break your sale...

Finding the right agent for your home sale is one of the most important decisions you can make, as you trust them with your biggest asset. There are so many different types of agents out there, and the range of services they offer can be confusing, so how do you find the one that’s right for you?

The truth is, one thing that sets a good agent apart from a bad one is whether they’re part of a registered network. In fact, it could make or break the sale of your home, and as members of The Guild of Property Professionals, we believe in this strongly. But why is it so important for an agent to be registered? We’ve put together a list of reasons why going with a registered agent is the RIGHT decision for you:

  1. It sets a new standard

Associations are constantly striving to raise the standards of their industry, and so are the agents who become part of them. They do this by educating and protecting agents and consumers to work to higher standards than the law demands.

  1. It gets you results

There are many ways in which Guild Members are committed to delivering you results. Primarily, local independent agents' interests are aligned with your own; they are looking to secure you a sale for the right price within the right timescale.

A key part of achieving the right result is marketing your property effectively. Members have access to a talented team in the Design Studio who make your property look its best.

Members also have access to The Guild's Park Lane office which enables them to promote your property to the lucrative London and overseas investor market.

The bonus of working with a Guild agent is the cohesive approach to marketing - through magazines, ezines and The Guild's website the entire network is working for you. What's more, buyers and sellers looking to move out of their area can be referred to fellow Guild Members.

  1. It ensures your agent is an expert

All agents that are part of the association must offer a certain standard of expertise in their industry, and will always give you professional and high quality advice. Training is given regularly to keep up with a changing profession.

As part of their Membership, agents are invited to complete the Associate Scheme, making them Guild Associates. There is one for Sales and Lettings and it covers the details, legislation and procedures involved. All directors and staff at Bond Residential are Guild Associates.

  1. It keeps your agent honest

All agents registered to The Guild of Property Professionals have their accounts audited at random, and are required to abide by the memberships code of conduct to remain a member, voluntarily agreeing to carry out their business in accordance with best practices, which means you don’t need to worry about a rogue agent trying to mislead you.

  1. It means that your agent cares for their customers

For an agent to be registered, it means they went the extra mile to ensure they can give their customers the very best in standards and services. A passion to best guide sellers and buyers, and protect them throughout their property journey shines through this membership.
