Is membership of AIPP beneficial? Ask our Members
We asked our Members to send us their thoughts on the benefits of AIPP membership - here's what they said.
We have memberships to all the well known property associations, but AIPP is key to our international sales operation. AIPP is rapidly gaining recognition by the public as the gold standard of international property buying. I would encourage all professional agents to join AIPP. The industry needs the AIPP, and high quality agents need the AIPP.
James Wyatt, Partner, Barton Wyatt
Customers are reassured by us being AIPP members and we make far more revenue from the increased sales directly attributable to our membership than we pay in subscriptions.
Robin Barrasford, Managing Director, Barrasford and Bird Worldwide
The AIPP was a ‘breath of fresh air’ when introduced. It certainly adds a credibility factor when liaising with both potential clients as well as developers. The consumer certainly feels an added security when the membership is explained. Companies that are not part of it will be the exception as opposed to the rule in the future.
Jeremy Casey, Managing Director, The Right Move Abroad
Our membership of the AIPP has benefited us in many ways already and joining was perhaps one of the better business decisions we have made.
Cindy Griffith, Managing Director, Cavendish Brooke International
I am writing to inform you of my company’s complete satisfaction in relation to AIPP membership. I can honestly say that since becoming a member the profile of our company in the market place has been enhanced. Members of the public appear to be more likely to deal with agents and developers duly associated. Our experience shows that in the present financial climate more and more clients are looking for assurances that the company they choose to purchase through are accountable and professional.
Steve Long. Managing Director, Casacalida Property Group
All of the ROPUK Network agents are trained on the AIPP principles and sign a declaration that they will adhere to these principals. The ROPUK Network are proud to be associated with the AIPP and believe they are the leading professional body for overseas professionals.
Chris Jones, Sales & Marketing Directory, ROPUK Network
Instead of me having to tell people we are a Founder Member of the organisation, they have either called us because they want to deal with an AIPP Member, or one of the questions they ask is, ‘Are you a Member of the AIPP?’ As a Founder Member of AIPP, my aim was to make sure the consumer had an organisation it could trust, An added benefit for me is it has helped us recruit selling agents as they also now have trust in the AIPP as a professional industry body.
Gary Kenny, Managing Director, Coldwell Banker Feltrim
Membership has helped increase traffic to our website and indeed drives people through our showrooms doors. Even those who may not have heard about the organisation feel genuinely reassured once we explain what being a member means to them. In the current climate, anything that demonstrates a higher level of professionalism and safety for clients must be exploited. Without doubt AIPP membership gives us just that.
