Richard Watkinson & Partners, one of the county’s most established agencies, has announced its membership of the Guild of Property Professionals.

The Guild is a nationwide network of almost 800 agents which only grants membership to one agent per area – recognising the highest standard of professionalism and customer service.

Director, Richard Watkinson said: “I set up the business almost 30 years ago in Newark to respond to increasing activity in the property industry – since then we’ve expanded to open a total of seven offices, operating across Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

“We’re very proud to have been recognised by such a well-respected industry body – it is truly a tribute to all of the hard work we have invested into building our reputation for outstanding service.

“Having such an established and well-regarded brand is something that we’ve worked hard to create and maintain so I’d like to personally thank all of our hard working staff, who are tireless in ensuring that our customers get the best possible service.”

As part of its membership, Richard Watkinson & Partners will have access to innovative marketing tools in order to promote vendors’ properties to a wider pool of potential buyers.

Speaking on behalf of the Guild, CEO Iain McKenzie said: “We are delighted to welcome Richard Watkinson & Partners into the Guild as our new representatives in Newark, Bingham and Southwell. Its expertise and outstanding service means that it will be a valued asset to our national network.”
