Agents wanted! Research reveals where new talent is most needed

The South East of England is currently most in need of an estate agency personnel boost, new research claims.

The analysis, by self-employed agency brand eXp, found the regions accounts for almost half of all current job listings for estate agents. 

It analysed current job advertisements for estate agents across the major job listing websites and what proportion of these job openings were found in each region of the UK. 


The figures show it is the South East where estate agents are most in need of reinforcements, with the region accounting for 48% of all current estate agent job listings. 

This is by far the highest of all UK regions, with London ranking second, accounting for 13% of all current job advertisements for estate agents. 

With 7% of current estate agent job opportunities found in the South West, the region ranks as the third hottest spot for recruitment in 2023, followed by the West Midlands at 6%. 

In contrast, the current requirement for estate agents is at its lowest in Northern Ireland, with the nation accounting for just 0.2% of current job openings. 

Adam Day, head of eXp UK, said: “In recent years, the industry has been stretched extremely thin whilst servicing an unrelenting pandemic surge in market activity and so the need for good, experienced estate agents has never been greater. 

“Although many were quick to call the demise of the market following the first signs of a house price decline, there are numerous indicators that stability has now returned and confidence remains high within the sector. 

“One such sign is the intent by many businesses to recruit so early in the year and there is currently a wealth of opportunities for those looking to make the next step in their career. Nowhere more so than the South East, with the region accounting for almost half of all current job openings.”

  • Where Is The  Monii Money

    Firstly, I’m not sure of the relevance of this and Adam Day at eXp and the conclusions drawn are based on what exactly?

    Secondly, I’d really like to know the data sources for this information.

    As of 17:20 on Wednesday 1 March 2023 there are 4,424 real estate jobs on Indeed available. 814, or 18.4% are in the South East. 128 or 2.9% are in the South West. and 911 or 20.5% are in London.

    At the very least the data sources should be referenced, the date that the information was correlated and then the methodology applied to the information.
