Why don't Children grow up wanting to be Estate / Letting Agents

Neil Martin popped into the Grantham studios to talk all things Estate and Letting Agency, including the tenant fee ban, Rightmove’s perceived stranglehold on the EA industry, millennials, how to be a successful letting and estate agent over a series of 12 videos. Neil describes himself as Multi-award winning speaker and content creator and throughout his career he has been recognised by his colleagues, clients and peers for his first class public speaking and presentation skills and his ability to make complex subjects easy to learn and understand.

He is renowned for being able to spot opportunities that enable his clients to embrace new ideas, methodologies and strategies to deliver positive change and both personal and business growth. Using his outstanding relationship development skills, he builds long term associations based on mutual trust, respect and understanding. I have not been paid to do these videos for Neil nor do I earn any commission from you using him- he is just a bloody decent bloke who many of letting and estate agent clients swear by him – so if he is good enough for them – he is good enough for me.

I teach, guide, support, mentor, consult, counsel, partner many hundreds of UK Estate and Letting Agents in their quest to grow their estate and lettings agencies business. Old school techniques of touting, landlords wanted leaflets, ring us for a free valuation, we have sold this in your street leaflets don't work anymore. There are too many competitor agents .. meaning cheap fees are epidemic, overvaluing is almost a norm to get the stock and don’t even mention about the online/hybrid threat. So a few years ago, I set about looking around the UK and spotted that certain agents (not many mind you) in certain towns were still seen as the ‘go to person on property’, the person the newspaper editor rang up every week for a comment and I looked at what they did and they were doing some thing quite remarkable…. Only one thing but they were doing it so well .. and reaping the reward in terms of decent listings and decent fees, happy staff, decent sales pipeline and exchange income, managed lettings portfolios in the many hundreds .. but more importantly, they really enjoyed the job… they enjoyed getting up in the morning and people looked up to them Over 400 agents around the UK are on a mission to change the way our Estate and Lettings agency profession is perceived and looked upon, doing it town by town, city by city. I guide these 400 agents, teach them, mentor them and support them to be seen in a different light, to be seen as the ‘go to person for property’, actually be the ‘local property expert’ and prove it.
