Best Estate Agent Guide

What is the Best Estate Agency Guide?

Simply put it’s a guide that helps choosing an estate or letting agent but rating every branch in the country and listing the top 20%.

It was compiled by the Property Academy with the support of Rightmove who conducted a whole of market assessment, including some 25,000 branches across the country, to identify a long list of agents.

Whole of Market

There are an estimated 26,000 estate and letting agency branches in the UK. The guide has identified and assessed over 25,000 of them to create a useful tool designed to help you to choose an estate agent for the sale or let of your most valuable asset.


Compiled by independent industry experts the Property Academy with the support of the UK’s largest property portal, Rightmove.


They compare performance at a hyper-local level and they rate branches, not companies to recognise differences in service standards between different branches of the same company, as well as disparities in regional property markets.


To choose which agents are listed in the Best Estate Agent Guide, each branch is scored against a unique set of performance and customer service criteria, using a combination of data analysis and mystery shopping.

The Guide looked at performance over a 12-month period, involving analysis of:

  • Over 25,000 branches
  • 1 million properties listed at any point in time
  • 3 million transactions
  • 50 million leads
  • 3 billion property views
  • 30,000 mystery shops

Estate agent branches that display a Best Estate Agent Guide rating scored in the top 20% of branches in the country. The marks provide a useful indication of the quality of the agent, which can help when choosing an agent to value your property and when choosing which agent to instruct.
