Allagents Business Development Director, Martin McKenzie said "Whilst it is great news that the UK's top rated individuals are receiving the recognition that they clearly deserve, at the same time there is a real underlying concern that if their current employers are not recognising the value of their people or rewarding them accordingly, then the UK could loose more and more of the best up and coming agents and set the repairing of the industry's reputation back years. We had been aware for some time that UK recruitment agencies were using our website to track and identify future candidates for top posts but this does not pose the same threat of an skills drain that the foreign agents are coming fishing for."
Martin also said "We introduced Staff Profiling about 6 months ago following increasing numbers of requests from individuals to help them achieve personal recognition from their customers and not just their firms. However it transpires
that as a result, they are now being pursued by top recruitment consultants and international head hunters. "
"To recognise individual customer service excellence, Allagents has also introduced the UK's first Property People Awards for agent staff and representatives. These run between 1st May to 30th April and with a £1000 prize for the UK's top male and female agent competing in and marketplace with over 100,000 employees."
Allagents.co.uk is the UK's largest review website dedicated to the property industry. Individuals can be named and rated by clients when they leave a testimonial or critique of their experience. The ratings are collated to produce league tables of customer service performance for individuals and firms.
