NAEA and ARLA Propertymark have launched an initiative called Propertymark Inspire to promote training and compliance awareness amongst agents.
A statement says the move is “led by members and designed for members to benefit from industry leading trainers.”
It’s aimed at independent agents who have to juggle with a difficult market, complex and fast-changing legislation, and the ongoing threat of tech disruption.
No details of costs have been made available publicly but Propertymark insists these will be highly competitive.
The service says participating agents would get “highly regarded industry experts, support in small bespoke networks, trainers working on front end tangible solutions and one-to-one tailored mentoring and advice.”
In addition there would be group conference calls tackling focused issues, pre-planning for industry and legislative changes, plus advice on a range of issues including marketing, SEO, business management, compliance, finance, human resources and legislation along with other key areas of business management.
Propertymark says there would also be a forum for sharing ideas “with similar non-competing agents.”
A new website has also been launched - here.
“The overriding theme is driving income, amplifying positive results and improving professional standards. We are utilising Propertymark’s unique position with industry stakeholders to give members insight as to future directions and look at the emerging prop tech arena to gauge an understanding of what will work and, more importantly, what will not” explains Mark Hayward, NAEA Propertymark chief executive.
“Everyone in the group has different areas of strength, fantastic examples of incremental and dramatic successes along with practical challenges and the shared experience and growth of the group yields dramatic short, medium and longer term benefits for everyone involved” he adds.
“The aim is to learn, share, expand and improve.”
