Agents who are part of The Guild of Property Professionals have had the highest market share of new instructions so far this year, it has been claimed.
The group commissioned research from agency sector analyst Twenty EA that apparently shows Guild members made up 5.17% of new instructions between January 1 and March 7.
The next estate agency brand is said to represent 3.98% of market share.
However, both Twenty EA and the Guild declined to provide the full results and would not divulge who else is mentioned in the research.
The research apparently shows that the Guild, which has more than 800 members, had the highest market share percentage on exchanges in the UK at 5.55%.
Iain McKenzie, chief executive of the Guild, said: “Over the past few years The Guild has seen substantial growth and expansion. As a result, its representation of the current market share of instructions has also grown.
“These outstanding statistics are a testament to the calibre of our membership.
“We are very selective in whom we have as members and always ensure that The Guild representative in the region is one of the best agents in the area.”
