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

Each year, we survey 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 13,080 estate agenies in the UK, we know it can be difficult to choose which agent to work with on the sale or let of your property. The Best Estate Agent Guide provides an independent and trustworthy source of information to help you compare agents and find the best in your area.

We’ve been carrying out surveys with renters, buyers, sellers and landlords since 2007 and we use the insights from these surveys to inform estate agency businesses of the latest trends, opinions and opportunities. We decided to use these insights to compare estate agents and 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 housing market and property listing data analysis, Google Ratings and Google Review Sentiment Analysis (whether the reviews are positive or negative), to help you to make an informed decision about which estate agent to instruct.

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