Josh Phegan: The bigger future
In this power-packed session, Josh covered:
The future of lettings, property management and maintenance as an integrated service.
It’s one customer, and they interact with us in so many ways. The firms of the future are focused on delivering the one customer experience, managing to not only grow saleable value but to preserve asset value during the life of ownership.
How the best businesses work to a formula and stick to it.
From lead generation to wining the business you to create scalable systems that are teachable so they can grow beyond the branch and into the brand.
How the ‘jobs to be done’ ethos drives profitable growth.
Don’t muddle the customer experience, get clear on what adds value and scale it so today’s customer can generate tomorrows customer.
And the importance of leadership in small teams.
In fast-paced environments, how do you fix broken systems and serve customers? 90-day sprints and functional roles help to build more cohesive teams.
Jane and Peter: The Ombudsman's Casebook - Emerging Issues
Jane Erskine and Peter Habert from the Property Ombudsman outlined the latest issues and provided examples of case studies to help agents avoid disputes.
The Property Ombudsman deals with nearly 30,000 enquiries every year, resulting in over 4,000 investigations. This means TPO is often faced with emerging issues and the first port of call for agents seeking advice.
Rajeev Nayyar: How to survive and thrive in lettings
Many agents have already been affected by the Tenant Fees Ban. With even more regulatory changes looming on the horizon, the industry as a whole will face higher compliance costs and lower topline revenue. Letting Agents must use cost-effective ways to improve their service offerings and ultimately, translate the effort into bottom-line profit.
Rajeev Nayyar, MD of Fixflo, covered the learnings from their annual industry research, The Fixflo Lettings Report 2019:
Many say the BTL market is cooling down – What are landlords actually planning on doing with their property portfolio? Where are the opportunities for Letting Agencies to develop their services?
When it comes to repairs and maintenance works, what do agents, landlords and tenants expect from one another? What can agents do to meet and exceed the expectations from landlords and tenants?
How are we, as an industry, prepared for the Regulation of Property Agents? What can we do now to make sure we will thrive in the future of Lettings?
ARLA’s David Cox will get you up to speed on a number of legalisation and legal changes in the lettings market. David is a regular presenter on Rightmove webinars and always delivers fantastic insight into what’s changed and welcomes questions from agents live on the broadcast.
He covered the ongoing impact of the Tenant Fees Act, Abolition of Section 21, EPC’s and the Regulation of Property Agents Reports (RoPA).
