Is membership of AIPP beneficial?
We asked our Members to send us their thoughts on the benefits of AIPP membership – here’s what they said…
Paul Cherry, Managing Director, Chersun Properties
We are a member firm of the AIPP because this gives our clients reassurance that we will act according to the code of conduct set by the AIPP. The regular updates that we receive from the AIPP ensure that we are kept up to date with changes in regulations and also gives our clients confidence that they are dealing with a trustworthy and a professional company. The benefits of being a member of the AIPP outweigh the financial costs and we will continue to be AIPP members.
Simon Binsted, CEO, Servissim Andorra
Thank you for helping build trust in our industry.
Jordan Woodley, Managing Director, Baker & Woods
We have been active in the international property market for a number of years and strongly believe in the objectives of AIPP. We share the same values as AIPP and, by being a member, this helps give our clients confidence, knowing that a company has a governing body to protect their needs.
Matt Wright, Owner, Platinum Estates Spain
AIPP is a great way to show clients that you take them and their transaction seriously. This gives everyone peace of mind that you are acting in the best interests of all parties and will do everything fairly and correctly. The logo is something I look for now in all agencies that we have any dealings with. If they are not a member of AIPP then I am always reluctant to work with them. I want every client of Platinum Estates to receive the best treatment.
Terry Lucas, 1casa.com
Staff at the AIPP have always gone above and beyond their normal day to day duties to help us with any queries or questions we have had. They are prompt and professional at all times. I would not hesitate in recommending them to clients and colleagues alike. Thank you.
John Goldacre, Managing Director, GoldAcre Estates S.L
Working with AIPP helps build our business profile with our clients giving them confidence that they are in the best of hands and ensuring that they are safe, secure and protected, every single step of the way with their purchase or sale of their overseas property through GoldAcre Estates We look forward to welcoming you to our company.
Beverley Townsend, Partner, Spanish Dream Property
It is good to be able to give our clients the reassurance that we are part of a professional body and must comply with certain standards and regulations. As professional property finders, the AIPP gives us a voice in the wider industry.
Robin Wilson, Rightmove
Joining the AIPP is a no-brainer for us as they share the same values and aspirations we do in promoting confidence in the overseas market.
Peter Esders, Judicare
Judicare firmly believes in and supports the work that AIPP does to bring regulation and improved standards into the International Property industry and also its work in educating and protecting the public. In the work that we do we regularly see the result of transactions that have gone wrong and have to try and resolve those issues for clients. We applaud AIPP in trying to reduce these sorts of issues occurring in the first place.
We are proud to be members of AIPP and will continue to support their valuable work through our membership. The work that AIPP does for the public and the industry reflects well upon members. It also reassures the public when they are using a member to help them buy property abroad.
Jesualdo Ros Tonda, Secretary General, Provia
AIPP has been very active in recruiting & help train sales agents to represent our group in the UK. We are 10 major developers in the Costa Blanca area of Spain with at least 30 years of experience, combining forces through our local trade association, Provia.
Joaquin Alvarez de Toledo Larios, BBVA Anida
BBVA is one of the largest bank in Spain and through our real estate subsidiary, Anida, Spain’s largest estate agent. We joined AIPP and have been glad of their guidance and support in building our UK agent network.
Assad Fakhry, Andalucia Realty
We have, for more than 16 years, been promoting the Costa Del Sol to an international audience. We joined AIPP because we share the association’s values and fully support their various initiatives to improve buyer education & protection. We have been actively involved in the recent and dynamic AIPP initiatives to improve trade connections and we have grown our referral network as a direct result. This is a great benefit of membership and one in which we have participated several times.
Drew Beckett, Owner MD of Beckett Hanlon Worldwide Property Franchise
With a background in the regulated UK Financial services industry for over 30 years, I entered the overseas property market determined to improve the existing industry service offering. Buyers deserve more expertise, transparency and, yes, honesty in this sector and we are committed to delivering that. Our membership of AIPP perfectly complements our stance and we have enjoyed the business introductions and thought leadership that AIPP offers
Bill Reid, Owner MD of Reid Estates, Perth Scotland
Reid Estates is a very well established domestic agency business based in Perth, Scotland. We decided to enter the international property market place through membership of the AIPP. We have been pleased with the advice, support & network introductions our membership has brought us. We know we can call upon AIPP for guidance at any time and this is a great comfort and value to us.
Ian Crane, Owner MD of Ian Crane Estate Agents
We have been active in the international property market for many years and strongly identify with the aims and objectives of AIPP through our membership. We are very happy with the level and quality of member services provided by AIPP. We particularly appreciate the various opportunities to meet fellow members – especially foreign companies providing products and services to the UK market – in a collegiate atmosphere at AIPP’ London offices.
Louise Reynolds, Owner MD of Property Venture
After a career in the City, I launched Property Venture® to give common-sense advice to British buyers of a foreign property. I felt there was too much focus on selling and not enough down-to-earth consultation, guidance and objective advice in the industry. As such, our AIPP membership supports and endorses our position. It is good to be at the forefront of industry developments and be in a position to help shape them. Being a member also means making quality professional introductions through the various AIPP networking events and ‘Meet the Product Provider’ open days.
