This well-respected award is not only a nationally-recognised industry qualification but it is also an entry requirement of the National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers which is a leading professional and self-regulating body solely concerned with valuers and auctioneers.

Nicola, left, said: "I decided to start studying toward this qualification to further my experience and I am thrilled the hard work has paid off and I have secured the NFoPP Level 3 Technical Award. For me, it is not only a personal achievement but evidence of our professionalism as an agency, showing our clients that they are dealing with someone who is knowledgeable and who they can trust to do a good job.

A proud Steven Gooch said: "We strongly believe our buyers and sellers will vote with their feet in support of an agency that is staffed by hard-working property professionals of intelligence and integrity."

Steve Gooch Estate Agents are among the steadily growing number of agents who are working with NAVA and the NFoPP Awarding Body to become qualified and raise standards within their field.

Mark Hayward, NAEA managing director said: "I heartily congratulate Nicola on her achievement and am pleased to welcome her to NAVA membership.

"In an industry where standards can vary greatly between member and non-member agents and agencies, obtaining this award represents not only Nicola’s dedication to developing as an agent but also her commitment to working to the high industry standards," he added.
