Basically if you\'re looking in Walthamstow then you need to be registered with Central as they\'re pretty much the main players locally, who get most of the big/decent properties that tend to go very quickly. But if you\'re lucky you\'ll get Richard Maher showing you around/on your side. We were looking at a specific property, fresh on the market and an easy sell (ie good road, big, nicely done out) and we were in a very good position as buyers (ready to move/plenty of readily available £)...so Richard would have been abit mad to not engage with us I suppose...but from the 1st contact Richard went \'above & beyond\' (volunterring to show us round when all the other agents were already booked, negotiating for us over the weekend, trying to tie the vendor to commit to our offer etc). Not everyone in the branch was as helpful (esp at getting Richard messages, or bothering to understand the urgency of the situation) but overall we did feel that Richard was on our side, which is what you want/need when going through all the hassle of buying a place. Also he was very understanding when - totally unexpectedly - we got offered a massive deal and had to pull out of the purchase with him!
