Brighton’s Paul Bonett, has been confirmed as the new Chairman of Team Association, the UK’s largest branded network of independent high street estate agents.
Paul is a well-known figure on the city’s property scene - partly on account of his long-standing involvement in community and charitable activities, both locally and further afield and partly for his passionate commitment to helping preserve the environment.
His unconventional approach to the business – typified by his penchant for cycling to and from appointments (which he claims is generally a far more practical way of getting around the city than using a car) also played a part. Paul currently chairs Brighton & Hove Education Business Partnership, which helps young people get work opportunities, and he recently spent 9 months in Benghazi running an EU-funded Leadership Development courses for Libyans.
A past President of the Brighton & Hove Estate Agents Association, he is proud to have been chosen to head up the Team network. He said, “With hundreds of agents across the country, Team really is right at the cutting edge of estate agency” This, he explains, is all down to the industry-leading technology which links the entire network and drives Team’s unique property-sharing system. “We call it multi-listing,” Paul explains, “and it is quite simply the best way to sell your home, particularly in difficult times, delivering a level of service and market exposure that no ordinary agents can hope to match.”
As Chairman of the Association, he sees his new role as twofold: firstly, to explain to the public at any and every opportunity the benefits of using a Team agent, and secondly, to persuade more and more good, professional agents around the country to join up.
