Alongside this, she also sits on the TPO Industry Forum, the National Residential Forum for RICS, for which she is an Assoc RICS assessor, and on her home patch, is chair of the Norwich and District Association of Estate Agents.

Katie more recently sat as non-executive Director on the Propertymark board, was elected as president of NAEA Propertymark in 2017/2018 and currently sits on the national advisory group for The Guild of Property Professionals and is NAEA Propertymark regional executive for the West Country.

A statement from Propertymark said they will help raise the profile of Propertymark Qualifications and ensure its offering is fit for purpose, keeps up with the industry and exceeds educational standards.

Tim Green, chair of the Propertymark Qualifications board, said:  “It’s important that we have a great breadth of knowledge across our board, from educational experts to those who know the industry inside and out, so we’re extremely pleased that two well-known practitioners will be joining us on our journey to continue to drive up industry standards even higher.”

Mike Smith, Head of Propertymark Qualifications, added: “As the sector is continuously changing and new goal posts are being created, we need to ensure that our qualifications and assessments also keep up and stay ahead of the curve, delivering what the profession needs in an accessible way.

“With some innovative additions in the pipeline, we’re really pleased that both Jan and Katie are joining the Propertymark Qualifications’ board at what is an exciting time in its evolution.”
