Guild Members Recognised amongst the UK’s Top Agencies for 2023

Industry Comment Kris McLean 2nd June 2023

The Guild of Property Professionals has once again shown the strength of their network with over 80 shortlisted Members at The ESTAS 2023.  


The ESTAS honours the best agents, conveyancers and brokers in the UK based on reviews submitted through The ESTAS online customer review platform, which enables property professionals to demonstrate the customer service standards they deliver for their clients. ESTAS reviews can only be completed at the end of the property transaction and a strict verification process ensures reviews are genuine. The regional and national winners will be announced at the 20th annual ESTAS ceremony held in London on 20th October and will be presented by the UK’s favourite property expert Phil Spencer in front of over 1,000 of the UK’s top property professionals.  


Kris McLean, Managing Director of The Guild of Property Professionals, said: “A huge congratulations for another year to all the Guild Members who have been shortlisted, you should all be tremendously proud of this fantastic achievement. It is truly a testament to the remarkable agents we have within the network. It shows that with the support of a national network such as The Guild, independent estate agents can become bigger than the sum of their parts and compete on a national level.”  


As well as being in with a chance of winning a regional or national award, all the shortlisted Guild Members will also have the chance to pick up the ‘Best Guild Member Award’ which will be presented to the highest scoring Guild office in The ESTAS competition. Not only have many of The Guild’s 800 plus strong network been shortlisted, but The Guild itself has also been honoured, being shortlisted in The Supplier Awards, recognising supplier firms who have delivered the best customer experience in 2022.   


Spencer said: “The industry’s leading suppliers are instrumental in helping property professionals provide excellent service, they are an extension of that experience so the service they deliver is crucial, it’s therefore only right that ESTAS puts the spotlight on their efforts.” 


Simon Brown, Founder of the ESTAS Group, said: “The best suppliers to the industry go out of their way to provide exceptional service and they should be recognised for that.  We understand that different types of products and services require different service levels, so we highlight ‘Best in Sector’ suppliers as well as the overall Supplier of the Year.”
