We’ve built a legacy…
Over 15 years ago deverellsmith launched within the Estate Agency space and naturally expanded across many real estate verticals. As demand increased, our portfolio grew, and our excellent customer service was seen to be infectious. The Estate Agency division is led by deverellsmith’s CEO and Founder, Andrew Deverell-Smith, who has advised senior leaders on talent, hiring and their careers for some of the market’s leading agencies worldwide including Knight Frank, Foxtons, JLL and many more.
We like to work with data…
deverellsmith’s unique data and research function consists of a team of expert data analysts. Using an evidence-based approach enables our clients to make smarter, data-led decisions around their most valued asset class: people.
Last year, our data and research team surveyed our database of Estate Agent professionals, which unearthed the company values which are most important to potential employees. These were:
- Respect for People: We value our people, encourage their development, and reward their performance.
- Integrity: Companies who uphold the highest standards of integrity in all action.
- Teamwork: Companies who work together, across boundaries, to meet the needs of customers and to help the company win.
- Diversity and Inclusion: Strategies, and practices to support a diverse workplace and leverage the effects of diversity to achieve a competitive business advantage.
