Online PR News – 25-July-2011 – – Kettering, UK, July 25, 2011 -- Harpreet Garcha, a Kettering based lettings agent with Belvoir Lettings has successfully passed an NFoPP (National Federation of Property Professionals) Technical Award in Residential Letting and Property Management. This well-respected Award is not only a nationally-recognised industry qualification but is also an entry requirement of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) – the only professional, self-regulating body specialising in raising and maintaining practise standards in the UK private rental sector.
Harpreet who started his career as a manager at KPMG, has been working as a letting agent in Kettering for five years. Harpreet purchased the franchise for Belvoir residential lettings agency in Kettering in 2006 after two years of working at KPMG had given him an insight into how businesses work and had a desire to apply this to his own business rather than somebody else’s.
Harpreet who now runs three Belvoir Lettings offices in Kettering, Desborough & Coventry said: “I decided to start studying towards this qualification as a result of a desire to broaden my knowledge base and I am thrilled the hard work has paid off and I have secured the 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”.
Rachael Arnott, Sales Manager who works alongside Harpreet at Belvoir Lettings said: “We could not be more proud of his achievement. We strongly believe Kettering, Desborough and Coventry landlords will vote with their feet in support of an agency that is staffed by hard working property professionals of intelligence and integrity, like our Harpreet.
Harpreet is amongst the steadily growing number of agents across the UK who are working with ARLA and the NFoPP to become qualified and raise standards within their field.
Elizabeth Richards, Head of Legal and Policy at the NFoPP states:
“I heartily congratulate Harpreet on his achievement and am please to welcome him to the ARLA membership. In an industry where standards can vary greatly between member and non-member agents and agencies, obtaining this Award represents not only Harpreet’s dedication to developing as an agent but also his commitment to working to the high industry standards which ARLA seeks to promote.”
