Simon McLaren, from Dawsons branch in Gorseinon, is celebrating after becoming an accredited Relocation Agent Specialist.
The accreditation was awarded by Relocation Agent Network and is achieved by completing a comprehensive online training programme, The Importance of Service.
A national network of independent estate agents (of which Dawsons is a member), Relocation Agent Network introduced the training programme to ensure each of their members provides the very highest customer service to those relocating around the UK.
Chris Hope, Dawsons’ Senior Partner, said: “We take staff development very seriously and Simon’s Relocation Agent Network accreditation is a great example of what can be achieved when staff are supported properly to improve their skill set.
“Of course, having a Relocation Agent Specialist in the team is also great for our relocating customers.”
To be successfully accredited, participants must complete three phases of learning, which begins with four training sessions on the importance of customer service.
This is followed by three online seminars covering the Relocation Agent Network Referral Process and how best to help customers who are relocating around the UK. Finally, participants must convert their theoretical learning into a practical skill set by delivering assistance to three relocating customers.
By working with fellow members across England, Scotland and Wales, Relocation Agent Network members provide an exclusive relocation referral service to customers. For those relocating to Gorseinon, Dawsons guides their customers through the daunting task of moving to an unfamiliar location.
This includes local area information on schools and amenities, popular neighbourhoods and (of course) finding the right property for them. The introduction of a Relocation Agent Specialist to the Dawsons team, ensures that this process is made even smoother.
Relocation Agent Network’s Managing Director, Richard Tucker said: “Selected by us as the best independent estate agent to represent the Network in Gorseinon, Dawsons have proved themselves as the area’s Local Expert.
“So, with the addition of an in-house Relocation Agent Specialist, they have gone one step further to provide relocating buyers and sellers with the very best customer service.”
