The Estate Agents Authority this year will focus on a scheme that allows agents from both sides of the border to have their professional qualifications mutually recognised, according to chairman Vivien Chan. The authority has received dozens of inquiries about the scheme, which kicked off this month. Chan said it would also seek to expand its workforce this year. The authority also said that of the six complaints over the 'rubbish dump' flats at The Icon at the Mid-Levels, half were dropped. It is still waiting for the developer's reply.
