Swansea estate agent celebrates 20 years of relocating homeowners across the country

Dawsons is celebrating 20 years of national connections this year. As a founding member of Relocation Agent Network, a national network of independent estate agents across England, Scotland and Wales, the Swansea-based estate agent has helped relocate over 110,000 people during the last decade alone.

The brainchild of Cartus, the premier provider of relocation services, Relocation Agent Network aimed to create a UK network of ‘Local Experts’ that would guide relocating employees and their families through the home buying and selling process. Today, that ‘Local Expert’ ethos still remains, as just one estate agent in any given area is invited to join, with Dawsons being Swansea’s selected agent for the last 20 years.

“We’re delighted to be celebrating 20 years as Swansea’s appointed Local Expert. As a member of the Network, we have access to potential out of town buyers moving into the area, providing an additional channel of buyers to our home selling customers. As a founding member of Relocation Agent Network, we have the local expertise and national connections to help you move into and out of the area.” said Christopher Hope, senior partner at Dawsons.

Utilising a unique ‘Referral Network’, Relocation Agent Network has helped to relocate customers throughout the UK. As part of this service, Dawsons and other Network members provide relocating customers with local area information guides, including local property prices, transport links and even data on school catchment areas.

Since it was founded in 1994, Relocation Agent Network has helped sell more than £1.2 billion worth of properties. With the help of generous members like Dawsons, the Network has also raised over £51,500 for charitable causes such as NSPCC, ChildLine, Help for Heroes and Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Managing Director of Relocation Agent Network, Richard Tucker added, “It is fantastic to be celebrating 20 years of excellence in estate agency, a reputation that has been forged by members, who have been with us since the start. Each one of our members, including Dawsons, has been specially selected to represent us in their local area, based on their local knowledge and – above all – the customer service they provide. 20 years is a significant milestone in Relocation Agent Network’s journey and I look forward to celebrating the next 20 years of achievement.”
