I registered with practically all the agents in walthamstow, some of which proved to be completely inept. Richard was probably the most informative agent i dealt with. From our discussions he knew exactly what property i wanted and where i wanted it. What i particularly found useful was that he would only make contact with me regarding properties that matched my criteria thus not ringing me up or spamming me with e-mails on properties that i wont be interested in, which is what i got from a lot of the other agents.
Although i didnt buy through him he made the whole process feel personal and the information he gave us was informative, directive and helped a great deal.
