This higher level qualification shows an in-depth knowledge of the sector and how it can be applied within the residential letting and property management environment.

Nina Simpson of Advanced Lettings comments: “It was important for me to secure this higher level qualification as a letting agent. It is not only a personal achievement but also a mark of professionalism and trust; it provides reassurance to tenants dealing with Advanced Lettings that the agency adheres to the highest professional standards, and that employees are qualified and knowledgeable letting agents.”

Nina is among a growing group of agents across the UK working with ARLA and the NFoPP Awarding Body to achieve recognised qualifications and raise standards within the industry.
