Fine & Country says now is “a great time” for estate agents to go upmarket and become “the luxury agent” in their respective areas.
F&C – which before the Coronavirus outbreak described itself as the fastest-growing premium estate agency brand in England and Wales – is hosting a series of webinars starting this week to push the possibility of agencies moving towards higher value properties to sell and let.
Nicky Stevenson, head of the Fine & Country Associates programme, will be leading the webinars which will be open to all agents wondering how to become a luxury estate agent and what a day in the life of a luxury agent looks like.
“The market has been massively impacted in recent times and the estate agency business is shifting. With the market currently on hold, this is the ideal time for experienced estate agents to relook at their opportunities, see how they can prepare for the months ahead and how they could take their business/career to the next level and bring in much needed additional revenue when restrictions are eased: says Stevenson.
Contributors to the four webinars – the first of which is this Thursday – include Alice Watson-Smith, who has premium property experience in the UK, South Africa, and currently operates in the French Riviera.
Others include Jonathan Hansford, last year named as the best overall operator from 325 Fine & Country offices across the world, and the well-known UK industry figure Sean Newman who has been working in premium property for nearly 20 years across the Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire markets and has over 50 luxury agents across his network.
