Myself and a friend have had dealings with the manager of Clarkes and both have had similar experiences. Very unprofessionally he tried to flatter us telling us we must work out and tried to pressure us to sign the contract to enable them to sell our houses and showed us confidential paperwork and statistics which compared other agents in the area, carefully adding he will 'try' and cover the other names with his hands as he was not supposed to show us! Completely unprofessional.
What agent could do to change your mind?
Not be a complete sleeze.
Not to rubbish other companies - very unprofessional
