The Guild launch event in Northern Ireland a huge success

News & Legislation GPEA 27th September 2018

On 20th September The Guild of Property Professionals hosted an invitation-only launch event at the iconic Titanic Belfast in Northern Ireland. The event welcomed The Guild’s first Member in the region, Wilsons Auctions, and was a great opportunity to engage with potential new Members in Northern Ireland.

The event kicked off with an address by Iain McKenzie, CEO of The Guild, who introduced The Guild and highlighted the benefits that becoming a Member could offer independent estate agents in Northern Ireland. 

Since its inception 25 years ago, The Guild of Property Professionals has seen substantial growth in both England and Wales, a pattern that is likely to continue with the expansion into the Northern Ireland region. “The turn out and interest at the event was phenomenal,” said Iain, “We had independent estate agents covering over 30 territories who recognised the advantage membership to The Guild offers and showed serious interest in being a part of our expanding network.”

Regional Manager, Kris McLean, who will be looking after the Northern Ireland Members, spoke on the topic, ‘How The Guild works for you.’ He explained the details of how The Guild’s unique offering of over 38 products and services can help agents to save money and increase their revenue and market share in their local market. 

One of the many benefits of becoming a Member of The Guild is assistance to remain compliant in the often-complicated estate agency industry. This is achieved by providing Members with access to, among other things, Paul Offley - The Guild’s in-house compliance officer. Paul provided the attendees at the event with crucial advice on how to be fully compliant as an estate agent in the UK. 

Rounding off the official speeches before the commencement of the celebratory drinks, Iain McKenzie expressed his gratitude to those who attended. “It is an exciting time for The Guild and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work with estate agents in Northern Ireland. This is a new chapter for The Guild, we are eager to see its growth and development in the future.”
