Why should I choose a NDAEA agent?

Consumers have a clear choice when selling what is in most cases, their most valuable asset. Sellers can choose an estate agent who is qualified, licensed, regulated and affiliated or they can choose one that is none of these things.

Some estate agents are members of the National Association of Estate Agents and some are members of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. Both of these organisations are regarded as the two professional bodies in the industry and both have redress schemes in place. Agents who are not affiliated to either of these organisations should be avoided at all costs.

Some of us are qualified to do what we do so ask before you commit. Agents who do not hold a relevant qualification should also be avoided at all costs.

Only a few of us are actually licensed to practice by the National Association of Estate Agents. Licensed estate agents should be first pick.

The bottom line is that you are more likely to find an agent who is qualified, licensed, regulated and affiliated within the Norwich and District Association of Estate Agents than if you look anywhere else. Our member firms also meet regularly for training events and to share best practice. We have a code of conduct and strict criteria for new members. Ask an NDAEA firm to tell you more about what we do and I’m sure they will be delighted to help you.
