  • Diploma in Residential Estate Agency

    Hi All

    Was wondering if the above is worthwhile doing? Got five years experience as Residential Sales Negotiator, one of my colleagues has completed all the exams and now on his dissertation but has nearly had three breakdowns with the stress! Planning on relocating to the manchester area in 2-3 years, do any agents have an opinion of the value of the Diploma, ie will it prove beneficial given the time/cost involved and is it something many agents look for when recruiting staff?

    Thanks for all opinions in advance.

    "As a guide, it is expected that each unit (4 units) would take around 65 hours of study and the project will take around 90 hours of work."

    "You will be able to study at your own pace, within the time constraints of the MOL support period, working through the units in the order that they are presented, to get the most out of the course materials."

    Hardly seems 'nervous breakdown' material....

      Sounds like someone is simply taking on board more than they can cope with. Probably worth suggesting they try and take things a little easier.

        The value of qualifications

        The NAEA diploma is certainly worth taking. As an ex College Tutor, I am a believer of life long learning and proper qualifications. When you consider the legal implications of Estate Agency and the fact that you are handling possibly the most expensive asset that someone owns - study and qualifications will promote professionalism and demonstrate to others that you are qualified and proficient.
