Some of the staff that have just passed exams

The training and development of staff has been an important theme to the company's success since it launched 14 years ago. But, according to director Will Linley, it is now more important than ever for letting agents to be trained to the highest possible standards.

He said: "Staff remain our greatest asset and we have set ourselves the challenging target of passing all 95 of them in these exams.

"Given the problem posed by rogue operators who do not sign up to any recognised accreditation scheme, coupled with a more competitive marketplace, it is more important than ever for our staff to be trained to the highest possible standards.

"These exams are an important way of demonstrating that our staff are equipped with the skills and detailed knowledge of the market that is required to meet the needs of our clients,"

The staff all passed the ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) Technical Award in Residential Letting and Property Management, through an 'e-assessment. It covers health and safety; the law; property letting practice; and property management practice.

The awards are an important step for property professionals towards ensuring the highest standards of proficiency and service for customers.
