Which Property Agent is the UK's first true comparison website of estate and letting agents, to help property owners find which 4 agents are most suited to sell or rent out their property. Our algorithm uses ratings left by past customers of each agency to determine which property agent has the best track record for selling, or letting, particular property types in particular areas of the country. So if you want to sell your 4 bed semi-detached house in Sheffield city centre for example, our algorithm presents you with the four best agents to sell a 4 bed semi-detached house in postcode S1, based on how their past customers have rated them on selling that property type in that area.
In an industry that surprisingly has relatively low levels of rules and regulations, the need for a way of comparing estate or letting agents before you choose which one to trust to sell or let your property is long overdue.
Which Property Agent Ltd. is an independent company that is not affiliated to any estate agent or letting agent - so we are able to provide impartial, unbiased recommendations.
So how did it all come about?
Our "eureka" moment came after hearing (and experiencing) over and over again that property owners "Find it so difficult to choose between agents, they all seem the same on paper and we're tired of trying to find a competent one." At the same time, being told by letting agents and estate agents that they, "Have plenty of enquiries from people looking for a house to live in. We need more actual properties on to sell and let". If only there was a way of driving just the best estate and letting agents with business from vendors and landlords, then the two problems would be solved!
After conducting market research to confirm that the concept of a comparison website of estate and letting agents would work from the point of view of a property owner looking to sell or rent out their property, www.WhichPropertyAgent.co.uk was born!
Improve the standards of the residential property industry by allowing landlords and vendors to find which is the best agent to let or sell their property and hence rewarding agents that consistently provide the highest standards of service.
Which Property Agent Ltd. also recommends and rewards agents that are members of accredited professional bodies such as RICS, National Association of Estate Agents, Association of Residential Letting Agents, the National Approved Letting Scheme, Safeagent and the Property Ombudsman; all of which strive for consistently high standards of professional service in the property industry.
