Always ask to see the relevant documents to make sure that you are working with a accredited property agent.
Apparently, some firms are resorted to employing so-called rental coordinators to do the job of property agents.
These rental coordinators do essentially the same work as a real property agent, but as they are unaccredited, they do not need to pass the required examinations and meet the minimum sales quota.
The “phantom” property agents will split then their commissions with the real property agent they are operating under, who might not be present.
This blatant flouting of rules make a mockery of the Estate Agents Act, which aims to increase the level of professional of real estate agents.
And has anyone else besides me also felt that becoming a real estate agent is increasingly becoming a second career option for many people? I know of so many friends and acquaintances who have quit their job to become full time housing agents.
