Vendor advocacy started a long time ago. Initially it was on an informal basis where our clients asked for a recommendation on which agent to sell their property with, as we have vast knowledge on agent’s performance through our property buying.

Initially we used to simply suggest an agent and off our client would go…happy days…not always the case. Many of these sales did not end well, with negative feedback about the agent and agency, and subsequently us.

A decision was made not to recommend sales agents, unless we had involvement in the process and thus could monitor progress, and exercise a degree of control over the process. We needed to protect our recommendation as you are only as good as who you recommend. We now have a well-oiled process for our Vendor Advocacy service.
