Independent estate agents outperforming corporate counterparts

In the last six months of 2012 independent estate agents in the Move with Us Partner Network held on average of 11.8% market share locally compared to the 8.8% market share held by corporate agents.

According to the data from the Move with Us Partner Network also sold properties on average of four days faster than their corporate counterparts and 23 days faster than the general market.

Simon King, Director at Move with Us, commented that: “There’s no doubt in our minds that independent estate agents provide the best customer service around.

“They have often lived locally for many years giving them outstanding local knowledge; it is often their name on the door and their reputation on the line so they naturally provide high levels of customer service.

“They know that top quality service will mean customers return time and time again and that recommendations to family and friends will bring even more business in the future.

“We help them become recognised for the excellent local services they provide which is not only why we created the partner network but one of the key reasons we founded Move with Us.”
