The Property Academy is the UK Property Industry’s pre-eminent business improvement and events company.

We provide information, insight, ideas and inspiration (four-i) for individuals and companies in the property industry.

Founded by estate agency coach and award winning speaker Peter Knight, the Property Academy exists to improve business performance and service standards. We encourage, challenge and motivate our members to improve their personal, business and customer service performance.

We’re passionate about improving business performance and customer service standards, through first class training for property professionals, including suppliers, estate agency owners and their teams on the front line and by championing, recognising and rewarding those suppliers, estate and letting agents that are truly delivering the best service levels.

The Property Academy shares four-i with contributions from expert speakers in the following ways:


Home Moving Trends, Landlord and Tenant Surveys

Additionally we carry out the largest independent national consumer surveys. Each year, approximately 5,000 people take part in the Home Moving Trends, Landlord and Tenant Surveys, providing us with the latest views and experiences of buyers and vendors, landlords and tenants. We have over a decade of data, enabling us to understand and track changes in consumer expectations.

Property Industry Awards

In 2001, the Property Academy launched the property industry’s first awards programme for estate agents – the Estate Agency of the Year Awards in association with The Times and Sunday Times.

In 2017, supported by Rightmove, we launched the EA Masters and Best Estate Agent Guide Awards – the very first awards to assess every estate and letting agency branch in the country in order to improve standards; reward good agents and provide a guide to help consumers to identify and instruct the best agent in the sale or let of their property.

We have listed those agents that performed to the highest standards in the Best Estate Agent Guide, to help consumers find and instruct those agents that have been rated as amongst the best in the country.
