How does Network membership help the customer?

Through its affiliation with Cartus, the premier provider of global relocation services, Relocation Agent Network members help Cartus move relocating families in and out of areas across England, Scotland and Wales. This offers Richard James customers an additional channel of buyer when selling their property. Through the ‘Referral Network’, members can also help their relocating customers by referring them to a fellow Relocation Agent Network member in the area they are moving to.

This year’s Relocation Agent Network National Conference is sure to give us lots of best practice ideas and innovations to benefit our customers. The event also provides the Richard James team with the opportunity to meet some of the UK’s leading estate agencies.
