We compare every estate agent branch to determine the very best. Only those agents that score highly enough against our criteria are featured in the guide.

Each year, Property Academy surveys thousands of buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants in order to better understand their opinions and expectations of the home buying, selling and renting process.

With an estimated 25,000 estate agency branches in the UK, we know it can be difficult to choose and there is a lack of independent and trustworthy information to help you compare agents and find the best in your area. This is why we decided to produce the Best Estate Agent Guide.

After 12 years of listening to the voice of the consumer and using the insights to inform estate agency businesses of the latest trends, opinions and opportunities, we have decided to compare estate agents in order to provide the millions of people who sell or let their property each year in the UK with an independent and credible source of information to help them find the best estate agent for them.

We have developed a reliable rating system based on a combination of data and mystery shopping to help you to make an informed decision. We only list the best estate agency branches, so you can be sure the agent that you choose to sell or let your property has met our exacting criteria.

You can use our useful search to see if there is an agent that qualifies in your area.
