A new stamp of approval for the industry, Propertymark, was launched by NAEA and ARLA earlier this year, largely taking the place of the National Federation of Property Professionals brand.
The National Federation of Property Professionals Awarding Body has become Propertymark Qualifications, with successful candidates receiving Propertymark Qualifications certificates from the beginning of March.
In their official launch statement, NAEA and ARLA said:
“Having listened to our members, and given the significant challenges the industry is facing, it is clear, now more than ever before, the public needs far better understanding of how to choose a property agent that has the consumer’s interest at heart.”
“The new focus unifies the two organisations as ARLA Propertymark and NAEA Propertymark.”
Propertymark is a stamp of approval for consumers when they seek professional property expertise in buying, selling, renting, leasing or valuing a property. It offers the highest standards and qualifications among property professionals.
Paul Carr Lettings are proud members of ARLA Propertymark. Mark Bentley, Director of Paul Carr Exclusive & Rural Homes, is the Vice President of the NAEA and will become President Elect later in 2017.
