There is NO mandatory regulation of estate agents. The idea that ‘anyone can become an estate agent’ is not far from the truth.
Our estate agents join NAEA voluntarily to demonstrate transparency and ensure they are at the forefront of developments in the industry and to provide the very best moving experience to their consumers – they have nothing to hide! By using a NAEA estate agent consumers are guaranteed to be consulting with a professional agent who can give them up-to-date advice and guidance.
INTEGRITY - NAEA estate agents are experienced and trained professionals who abide by a nationally recognised Code of Practice.
