Seel & Co is to be recognised in a national guide of the top operators in the sector.
We will be included in the Best Estate Agent Guide, which is to be published for the first time this autumn.
Put together by The Property Academy – which provides information, insights, ideas and inspiration for individuals and companies in the property industry – the Guide will be officially unveiled at a new event, The EA Masters, next month (September 22), which replaces the Estate Agency and Letting Agency of the Year awards.
The Best Estate Agent Guide will highlight the top 20% of estate and letting agent branches as assessed by The Property Academy, which is basing the findings on a combination of agents’ performance and customer service.
Property Academy CEO Peter Knight said: “Working with the unrivalled data from our principal partner, Rightmove, we will have assessed more than 25,000 estate agency sales and lettings branches.
“This exercise includes an assessment of three million sales and lettings transactions including those that didn’t go on to complete, 50 million leads and three billion property views of the one million-plus properties that appear on Rightmove at any time.
“In addition to analysing this massive amount of data, the Property Academy is now in the process of carrying out the biggest mystery shopping exercise ever undertaken.”
Tony Seel, Seel & Co owner and director, said he is delighted that the company has received recognition from The Property Academy.
“The scope of the new Guide means that only estate agents that are at the top of their game will be recognised for their excellence and attention to detail,” he said.
“We have always aimed to be the best we can be, so gaining this recognition not only shows to our customers that we are to be trusted, it is also shows appreciation of our highly professional staff, without whom we would not have achieved such success.“
