On Friday, October 20th, The Guild of Property Professionals achieved an extraordinary three-peat victory, clinching the prestigious ESTAS award for Best Agency Network for the third consecutive year.

The Guild’s network amassed a staggering 13,000 ESTAS reviews, boasting an impressive average customer service rating of 96.6%, a testament to the network’s steadfast commitment to excellence.
