We are looking for a driven and personable individual to join our Brentwood team, who ideally has at least one years’ experience within the Property Industry.

-        Reliability

-        Confidence

-        Sociable

-        Attention to detail

Role & Responsibilities:

This property consultant role involves all the exciting aspects of sales from business generation to, attending and arranging property viewings, to negotiating and agreeing property sales and offering other HP services such as Mortgage Advice. You will not be required to progress any property sales as we have a dedicated sales progressor, meaning more opportunity to sell!

If you already have experience in valuing and taking on properties or have an interest in doing so in the future, then we are happy to expand the role further with full training and support to be provided.

Due to the setup of the branch, we will require the candidate to assist with rental properties, from qualifying and registering potential tenants, to accompanying viewings, as well as liaising with Landlords to agree tenancies. HP has an in-house Letting team situated at our Branch who already provide support and guidance when required.

We are proud of our customer service success (award winners - Best Estate Agents Guide Awards 2021 & Feefo Platinum Trusted Service Award 2021), so if you get satisfaction from giving outstanding service – this role is for you.

The ability to tackle everyday office admin in an organised, efficient manner could win you an in-house Office Christmas award (other categories available, who knows what there will be for 2021).

The position requires you to work every Saturday with a set rota day off in the week. We would require you to join the Company Sunday rota, meaning you would work 3 to 4 Sundays a year as per our Sunday opening times, and would also work one Bank Holiday at our reduced opening hours.

Our Promise & Benefits:

With hard work comes great rewards. We are a fun, dynamic group and have regular, paid for, social events throughout the year to keep up the team spirit. (Currently these are socially distant social events… Zoom Bingo was a big hit, and team building Field Sports, when it was allowed).

You will have the opportunity to expand your industry knowledge through paid for professional qualifications, as well as continuous one-on-one (socially distant...)support from senior members of staff who total over 168 years of industry experience.

The opportunity to help us grow the branch further, and full support to progress your professional career within the company.

The chance to work closely (again at a safe distance…) with the Partners of the firm, meaning you have the chance to input directly into the business itself.

Onsite parking available at the office, and opportunity for a fully expensed company car.

Opportunity to earn more through inhouse incentives, competitions, and rewards.

Open or closed? - Lockdown January 2021

Following the Government announcement of the UK going in to a national lockdown we would like to reassure you that the property market remains very much open. However, there are a few small changes we need to let you know about.

We’ve checked out Government guidelines to ensure we’re keeping you our clients, and our wonderful team and as safe as possible.

The latest lockdown will see some of the team reverting back to remote working from home in order to reduce the amount of people we have coming in to each of our offices. However, due to the investment made in our technology and phone system last year you will not experience any change.

The small few changes to viewing our properties will be:

 - You will be asked to watch a video tour of the property you would like to view before a face to face viewing can be confirmed  

- We will no longer be handing out paper property brochures during viewings, instead will receive an e-brochure prior to your viewing

- We will be requesting that you wait safely in your vehicles upon arriving at a viewing, we will then call you to confirm the property is ready for your viewing

Onwards and upwards in getting you into your new home in 2021.

Scott, Jo & Merrick.

Covid-19 Guidelines

Our Branches

We have currently have most of our staff back in our offices . Some of us will work from home. Please continue to contact us on our office telephone numbers and email addresses and someone will be happy to help.

We are sadly not currently accepting unarranged visits to either of our branches and ask that you reach out to discuss your situation before you visit. We will continue to conduct over the phone or virtual appointments where we can, to ensure the safety of our staff, our clients and you the public. If a face-to-face visit is arranged at either of our branches, we politely request that you wear a face covering throughout your visit.

Property Valuations

Following the Government guidelines, we will continue to conduct virtual valuations first to discuss your property and our services. If you decide to instruct us as your acting agent, then we will arrange a physical appointment to take photographs and measurements. All compliance documents will be sent to you via email for you to complete. During this appointment we will ask you to adhere to the Government guidelines to ensure your and our safety – Read them here.

Property Viewings

Following the Government guidelines, we will continue to send video tours and should you wish to proceed with that property we require you to discuss with us your position and financial situation, before we are able to book a physical viewing. To reduce the number of viewings being conducted on our properties, we will only show individuals round if they are in a proceedable position.

If you attend a physical viewing, we ask only adults to attend the viewing and a maximum of two people (from the same household). During this appointment we will ask you to attend with your own PPE of face mask/covering and gloves. If you do not have this, then we will not be able to let you in the property. Government Guidelines can be read here.

It goes without saying, if you or anyone in your household are showing Covid-19 symptoms, then we ask you to inform us immediately prior to your appointment and reschedule to another time after you/they have finished self-isolating. If you or anyone in your household is shielding, then we ask you not to attend or book any physical appointments for your own safety.

We thank you for supporting us through these trying times and allowing us to assist you with your move. If you wish to discuss any of these guidelines in more detail, please do not hesitate to give us a call or drop us an email.

Stay Safe. Scott, Jo & Merrick
