Other benefits include free participation at SPAA seminars and its annual general meeting, regular industry updates, access to incentives and competitions, training modules and networking events.

Global managing director Andy Stark said: “The SPAA offers a wide range of opportunities for agents operating in Scotland and, most importantly, works to tackle the issues and protect the interests of agents living and working in the region.
