NAEA, the National Association of Estate Agents

There is NO mandatory regulation of estate agents. The idea that ‘anyone can become an estate agent’ is not far from the truth.
NAEA, the National Association of Estate Agents

Our estate agents join NAEA, the National Association of Estate Agents, voluntarily to demonstrate transparency and ensure they are at the forefront of developments in the industry and to provide the very best moving experience to their consumers – they have nothing to hide! By using an NAEA estate agent consumers are guaranteed to be consulting with a professional agent who can give them up-to-date advice and guidance.
