The qualifications will be recognised by both the NAEA and ARLA, and those achieving the HNQs will then be able to join the organisations.“There are still far too many stories in the media about rogue estate agents; we aim to set industry standards by ensuring all our staff are trained to their best ability, which we hope our peers will follow,” says Glynis Frew, Managing Director of Hunters Property Group (pictured, left).New and existing Hunters employees are now able to attain three different levels of qualification in either sales or letting. The highest is an HNQ Award, the middle rung an HNQ Certificate and base qualification an HNQ Diploma.Staff progress through each qualification in three steps or levels and, unusually, the training is linked to their work practices and uses Hunters’ software to ensure they are applying their training correctly at a branch level.The first Hunters member of staff to get qualified using the system is Ryan Almond (pictured, right) from Hunters franchise in Horsforth, Leeds, who says “it’s given me much more confidence in my role as Negotiator and I’m looking forward to being able to progress to the next level of training”.Ryan’s manager, Horsforth franchise partner Jonny Malkinson, says the HNQs help his business stand out from the competitors and that he wants “to be the first branch across the Hunters network to have all our staff complete one of the new qualifications”.Hunters, which opened its first franchised branch ten years ago, now has a network of over 180 branches across the UK including London, Oxford, Norwich, Middlesbrough and Manchester.Hunters Group qualifications training October 31, 2016Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

The pool yard has a covered area and overlooks a heated pool, manicured lawns and tropical palms. In Helensvale’s Riverdowns Acreage Estate, the property is on 4003sq m and comes with a water tank, chicken coop and 20 solar panels. 20 Warrego Way Helensvale“We modernised the bathroom and the laundry when we first moved in,” Mr Bennett said. “There are spotted-gum floors and beautiful timber finishes on the doorways.” He said his daughter had her own bathroom while he and his sons shared the man cave.“The garage space has been great,” he said. “I restore old Falcons and I’ve got a workshop with lots of storage. 20 Warrego Way HelensvaleRAIN, hail or shine, David Bennett said the windows in his Colonial-style home remained wide open.“It looks like a Queenslander, but the home is actually brick veneer with a Colonial wraparound veranda,” Mr Bennett said. “It is the best place to be when it rains; we keep the windows open and the house is filled with beautiful breezes and the smell of rain. “The veranda keeps the home sheltered from all elements, but it stays really well ventilated. The roofline covers 80 squares of the house, so as you can imagine we are high and dry.” last_img read more
