Kent Estate Agencies have a reputation as a market leader in helping buyers and sellers achieve their plans by ensuring our team has the resources to deliver a service second to none. Since the pandemic Estate Agents have woken up to the value of technology, some are only just entering the realm of allowing their customers access to their own account via their website to make it easier to complete their property journey. KEA proudly launched this over 15 years ago and continues to develop the customer account to provide access to the latest home buying tools available. Our service is extremely unique and provides a perfect blend of technology, people and tried and tested processes.

Paul Evernden

Operations & Development Director


Paul joined Kent Estate Agencies in 1993, after 5 years working in the front line of Estate Agency, he started to demonstrate a passion for the use of IT and systems in estate agency. Paul has been successful in combining his experience as an Estate Agent with his passion and has become responsible for KEA computer facilities. In 2000 he embarked on bringing together the plans to create a “Customer Relationship Management”(CRM) software platform which utilises the latest technology for the benefit of our clients, customers and our team. Our software platform now manages every aspect of the business which enables us to react to changing technologies and market conditions very easily, one of the benefits of having this level of control of our software platform meant that in March 2020 with the announcement of the first lockdown, our teams were working from home with the same phone, systems & technology within 3 hours, so this change had no impact on our clients and customers, they still could phone the office number and speak to the team member as if they were in branch and the team had access to all their files and data as they did in branch. Having such an established CRM software platform has given us an unrivalled advantage which our competitors have found difficult to emulate, this is just one example of our ability to create KEA systems which benefit our clients.

Another example came in July 2021, when we launched a system which monitors every property in a sales chain of transactions each and every day, highlighting any breaks in the chain so our experienced sales progressors can deal with any potential issues extremely fast to ensure the problem does not escalate, this system alone has increased our sales to completion success rate by over 20% in 2021 which is a big achievement considering that the National estate agency sales to completion success rates came under pressure in 2021, the reason we launched this service to protect our clients.
