Based off customer reviews, The Guild of Property Professionals has won the ESTAS Agency Network of the Year in 2021, and again in 2022.

Over the past few years ESTAS have been an integral part of our organisation as we endeavour to set the standard within the sector for integrity and professionalism. Our goal is for customers to recognise our Membership as the property professionals they are, knowing that when they choose a Guild agent, they can count on receiving excellent customer service. The partnership we have with ESTAS is evidence of our commitment to continuously improving the customer journey. The ESTAS review and awards platform helps agents generate consumer trust.”


Commercial Director of the ESTAS Group, Ben Marley, says: “We truly believe that agents who are delivering great service should be able to demonstrate this across all the major marketing channels for prospective customers to see. We want people to be able to select property professionals who come highly recommended because of their customer service and drive to go the extra mile.”


Marley adds, “For some years, ESTAS have been on a crusade to assist great agents demonstrate their service. As someone who has had the misfortune of selecting the wrong agent in the past myself, I know how important it is that vendors have impartial information from real customers to make the best-informed decision for them. We are happy that The Guild network are making full use of the platform and receiving such high volumes of reviews. Having these reviews at their disposal will go a long way to making the public’s decision to select the right agent easier.”
