How's your DEA business?

 

Dear Assessors. 

 

With summer business now hopefully picking up for all you energy assessors,  I thought I would take a moment to message you all and say a quick hello. Some of you will still be DEA's and some would have given up this trying career. Whatever your choices I would love to hear from you. Please post a comment and let us know how your business is doing and wether you are still a DEA or not. 

 

 Kind regards, 

 

 Dealocal team.

Getting work from Estate & Letting Agents

The Problems new DEA’s face getting work from Estate & Letting Agents?

Most Domestic Energy Assessors enter the business from enrolling and completing a Diploma with a Training Agency.  The advertisements from the Training Agencies are in our national & local newspapers proclaiming the myth that large amounts of cash can be made from the thousands of houses and flats needing to be sold through out the UK.

It is true that people are always buying & selling houses, however the problems for DEAs is who controls the decision making and who is performing EPC certificates for them before you even decide to ask them for jobs? Entering the market is swamped with problems, especially dealing with all the Estate & Letting Agents in your own area. It is case of too many fools rushing in, when patience and guidance from this website can save you time and money.

DEA's Not Playing Ball

Within my local area I have gained a good name due to the efficeint and proffesional service I provide to several estate agents and solicitors.  

However, a local firm for whom i used to work showed some desperation and contacted all my clients undercutting my fees by half!!!

Now i know we all need to make a living but surely this is just not acceptable from fellow dea's, is it? Can I name and shame? 

Luckily for me I pleaded my case and reduced my fees slightly to keep my clients on board but this is not the point.
