I had a mild experience with Paige, who has shown me a house. She was a bit late in telling me the viewing had moved up two hours, she basically called me as I had traveled to outside their offices...
The viewing was not at all what I expected it to be, Paige was at the wrong house first, and then it turned out the property was dressed up... a lot... to what they were saying it was. It wasn\'t quite honest to be fair... it turned out to be a house share with a live-in landlady. I felt that was a complete waste of time because all of the sudden there were a whole lot of extra rules about the property.
Paige continued mailing me diligently about new properties, and although she offered another viewing, I had already found a house. The idea that they weren\'t honest with me in what kind of property it was, and a bit of disillusion about the London property market will make me reconsider this letting agent in the future. As a househunter, at least, they were good with the viewings, dishonest with the property but that can be the british way of doing "sales" in general. I\'m as a prospective viewer leaning towards the 2-2,5... however the fact they kept on emailing me would make it a 2 for me.
What agent could do to change your mind?
To be honest, no matter how lousy a piece of property is, or if it is with a live-in-landlady who is devoutely hateful and very \"stay in your room\" like... be honest. They weren\'t and that broke me up a bit.
