Director, Karen Maxfield, has been an established local estate agent for over a decade. In 2005 she won the coveted NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents) Young Estate Agent of the Year Award in association with TTC Training. This was after Karen studied hard and was accredited with NVQ Levels 2 and 3 in Sales of Residential Property, as well as attaining the National Association of Estate Agents Technical Award. Karen is currently working towards the NAEA Diploma in Residential Sales.
She is the 2009 First Lady Vice President of the Bradford & District Auctioneers & Estate Agents Association, and will be the First Lady President of its history in 2010.

We strongly believe in the need for estate agents to be qualified, which is why we invest a lot of time and money in our staff training. Karen stated: "New industry is emerging. Estate agents have always been widely criticised by the press and public for delivering poor standards of service and paying little regard to estate agency law. It is no longer good enough to be good, you have to be distinctive, be different, and be qualified."
