Reputation is everything
Why is personal branding important?

Estate agency is constantly evolving. A few years ago, it was relatively rare to see the contact details of individual agents. But today many of our customers are now promoting themselves, as much as their estate agency firms, on their own websites and on social media. That’s why we’re pleased to offer our agents the ability to show their individual team members on our branch details pages. Estate agency is a people business after all!

Why personal branding is important
