team is the natural choice for independent estate agents
We are often asked ‘Why Team?’ and ‘What benefits does Team bring to members and customers?’
Our fundamental aim is to increase our members’ profitability, market share and relevance in their local area. By creating a wealth of products and services over many years we have brought together market leading solutions for our customers and members alike.
We have a portfolio of products which deliver great solutions to our membership. Our collective buying power gives real economies of scale and a compelling reason to celebrate membership of such a creative organisation.
There is of course a comprehensive list of member benefits but here are our top 10!
1) Multi –Listing or Property Sharing: This has been the bedrock of our offering since the 1980’s and has proved immensely successful with our members and customers over many years. It involves a vast amount of data sharing and gives team a unique benefit which no other organisation in the UK has been able to replicate. More exposure for your customers means more buyers and quicker sales as a result. This is truly our unique selling point and the reason why more customers choose a team agent to sell their property.

2) Driving more traffic to your own website: Team members can make the proud boast that their clients’ properties are marketed on more property websites than other networks of estate agents. Our multi listing facility shares all listings universally and you will be surprised and impressed by how much internet traffic is driven to your own website. Our relationship and investment with software partners Resource Techniques has, over many years, allowed members to share in incredible traffic statistics. Members who use an RT website will have an even better chance of being found at the top of the Google rankings. Our unique multi-listing offering really comes into its own here, because the resultant activity levels on member websites are quite staggering. Other agents pay thousands for worse results. Centrally, Team Association spend a five-figure sum annually, ensuring that we stay where we belong, at the top.

3) Teamworks: There are plenty of estate agency software packages on the market - but only one teamworks (cloud V6) offers a comprehensive, cutting-edge software solution designed to handle every aspect of the estate agency business. The software has been continually refined and updated over the past 27 years in conjunction with team’s technology partners, Resource Techniques.
What really makes teamworks stand out from the software crowd is that it powers team’s unique ‘Multilisting’ or property-sharing system, automatically collecting and re-distributing all new property information across the network every few minutes. This means that the information to which team agents have online access is always up to date.
The same uniquely powerful technology also powers team’s national property website, www.teamprop.co.uk – as well as handling automatic uploads to all other major portals. Find out more about teamworks
4) The Teamprop website: Since 2000, www.teamprop.co.uk has had over 112 million visitors and continues to punch well above its weight. The site is under constant scrutiny and is regularly expanded and upgraded. Most of our customers expect an agent to offer them more than one website and this is the ideal solution. There are also new specialist pages available, such as Distinctive Homes, Marine and Waterside and Equestrian.
