On the whole, I've had no problem with Estate Agents.
Primarily they serve their clients through renting or selling property.
I do so wish that they could reciprocate this attitude to customers using their service.
Is there anything worse than being strung along by an agent wishing to bait a deal?
Surely, if you have the means to pay, are not a criminal, are in employment and have excellent references, do you really need to wait a whole week before they tell you that they received another offer?
An unprofessional performance coupled with amateur Landlords, leads to a waste of time for all concerned.
Perhaps I'm being a little naƒÂ¯ve, but I've found it's actually easier to buy a property in Britain rather than rent one.
