Comment on agent fees
I feel the fees are high but only in line with the fees of all other agents and their competitors. Therefore it is the industry who should be working to lower fees on the whole. At least the fees with Prospect are straight forward and we received an excellent service for those fees as well.

I did negotiate on the fees to match what other estate agents were offering. They agreed to lower them with a clause of increasing if the property exceeded the asking price, which was a fair offer.
