Arnold & Baldwin has launched a series of CPD seminars to help estate agents establish greater knowledge and confidence when it comes the surveying process.
The Chartered Surveyor is delivering the seminars free of charge to educate estate agents about different types of survey and how to interpret them, local properties and their most common defects, how to properly prep buyers and how a well-managed survey leads to a successful deal.
Joe Arnold, Managing Director of Arnold & Baldwin, said:
“Estate agents are working in a competitive and slow-moving market and so it is important they can demonstrate the value they add against traditional competitors and online services. By increasing their knowledge and confidence, estate agents can build trust through credibility and develop stronger relationships with their clients.
“The survey is such a crucial part of the homebuying process and our CPD seminar will provide estate agents with some of the information they need to hold a deal together and ultimately get it over the line. If we can help estate agents build their knowledge and develop a mindset of adding extra value to clients, they will win the trust of the purchasers of today, who will become the vendors of tomorrow, and this could help protect their business pipeline for years to come.”
Arnold & Baldwin has already delivered seminars to estate agents from branches of Foxtons in South London, which have been well-received.
Simon Darvill from Foxtons says:
“The presentation we received from Arnold & Baldwin was extremely helpful for everyone in my team, ranging in experience from a relatively new starter, up to the sales manager. It was well thought out and helped explain a number of issues that come up on a day-to-day basis when dealing with buyers who are getting every variety of surveys. I would recommend all estate agents take up this opportunity to have a deeper insight into the surveying side of estate agency.”
Ashley Whitehouse from Foxtons says:
“A really informative presentation that gives a great understanding into the life of a surveyor. This is a must for all estate agents, so they get to understand the survey from the surveyor’s point of view.”
