Irfan is the best estate agent I've ever dealt with - he was always on time (something all other estate agents I've dealt with seem to have trouble with), let me look around properties in a relaxed, unpressured way, and went out of his way to help us secure our property. He always got back to me promptly and was very personable & friendly. It was such a breath of fresh air to deal with an estate agent you respect - thank you Irfan for all your help!
Comment on agent fees
Of course I'm going to think that agency fees in London are grossly inflated, but they're something I expect to pay so it wasn't a nasty surprise.
