AN estate agent has been awarded exclusive membership of The Guild Property Professionals as regional representatives in Barnard Castle.

The national network of almost 800 estate agents traditionally grants member-ship to just one agent in a given area.

George F. White was judged to have met its membership criteria on high standards of professionalism and customer service and as such was selected as its sole representative in Barnard Castle.

Valuer Victoria Linsley, manager of the branch on Redwell Court, said: “Being chosen to represent The Guild in Barnard Castle is a great honour and very exciting for us. The awarding of this membership is a tribute to all the hard work we have invested into building our reputation for exceptional service, and underlines our position as the leading estate agent in the area.”

The Guild gives George F. White access to innovative marketing to promote their sellers’ properties to the highest standard and to buyers across the UK including the lucrative London market, through The Guild’s head office in Park Lane.

She said the company will combine the advantages of being in The Guild with its principles of old-fashioned, honest, personal service.

The Guild’s CEO Iain McKenzie said: “We are delighted to welcome George F. White into The Guild as our new representatives in Barnard Castle. Their expertise and outstanding service means that they will be a valued asset to our national network.”
