Who are the Key Employers in the Estate Agency Sector?

Many estate agencis in the UK were detrimentally affected by the global recession and new sales appointments were put on hold. In addition, new websites such as rightmove.co.uk and findaproperty.com now make it easier for house buyers to assess potential properties online before making a decision to go and view a property.

It is typical for estate agents to work for very low base salaries (£14k) and for their total package to be made up of a large percentage of commission. Estate agent's may also have use of a company vehicle.

Some of the Key Employers in the Estate Agency Market include:

  • Foxtons
  • Bairstow Eves
  • Benson & Partners
  • Barnard Marcus
  • Mann Countrywide
