I am an agent – it’s just that I don’t like most other agents here.
The market here is not bouyant. It’s sunk – I’ve never seen it so quiet. I suppose this will force the prices down for a few years, and hope that that will bring the buyers back to us one day.
I don’t know anything specific about your Awful Estates (I know who you mean), but most of the big marketing hard selling agencies are either downsizing, or “rebranding” – which seems to mean folding the company to weasel out of all your contracts and continuing to work with the same people from the same office under a different name.
It might perk you up a bit to know that many of their sales teams are indeed now unemployed and destitute, or have been sent to Bulgaria. I know it puts a smile on my face every morning. *thumbs up*
