Helen & Ed CJ Hole Burnham-on-Sea

CJ Hole has been independently identified as one of the top estate agents in the country.

The Best Estate Agent Guide is a website that provides an independent reference source for sellers and landlords, who can search for sales and lettings agency offices.

The website is compiled by Property Academy (an organisation that works with agents to improve service standards in the property industry), with the support of Rightmove, the UK’s leading property portal.

There are around 15,000 estate agents in the country and CJ Hole was among this year’s award winners, putting them in the top 3% of estate agents in the country.

Over 3 billion data points were analysed and 20,000 mystery shops carried out in the search for this year’s top performers – the biggest assessment of any industry.

The awards are made for property marketing, results and customer service – which consumers consider to be among the most important criteria when selecting which agent to sell or let their property.

Managing Director Edward Creswick said: “These awards follow a rigorous and independent assessment and we are thrilled to have been recognised as among the best in the country.”
