D13 - to be re-fasted!

Had some doubt on the subject before, but I now know, my hunch was right, estate agents are scum.

They all have the same voices, wear cheap machine washable suits with stripy shirt and say things like“ yeah absolutely” 5 times in one sentence, they promise you the moon, the house to be repainted and the bed to be replaced.... just sign here please.

Failures and misfits is what they are to me, I am so glad I don’t know any estate agents, I think I would draw the line at not judging people on estate agents and maybe I’ll throw in recruitment consultants now that the only person I know who was an recruitment agent has changed jobs! Now I am practically clean. Phew

I feel bad now, some of those agents were very nice and funny, but I have to remind myself that, it's only until I sign or try to give notice to leave the place, then it’s HELLOOO ASSHOLE!

Time to buy methinks!

Saha ftourkoum for I think with the amount of swearing involved above I already did my iftar

  1. I'll back you completely with the scum idea. I also don't like to judge but estate agents are an exception.
    I hated them so much from when I was a renter, when I had to decide about renting out my Holloway flat last February before I left for Seoul, against all advice, I decided just to find someone on my own who needed a place. It has worked out fantastic - found a student / fashion designer in need of a place. We even did a swap - she takes care of my post and other business stuff in return for a reduction in rent.
    There are humane ways to replace estate agents!

  2. Oh absolutely, there are ways of getting by in this life without having to deal with estate agents, I always try to deal with landlords directly, they are nothing short of legalised thieves! Maybe I exaggerate a little, how about vultures or scum!

  7. God you move about a lot don't you? Can't really tell where my seatown was, it would be very obvious who I was...to those who don't already know who I am.

  8. Well, Holloway, Finsbury park, Haringey and seven sisters are the places I would not consider, let's put it that way.

  9. Gosh , are u famous?

    Haringay and seven sisters are too far I think. Cuts off social links if u work in the city. Also Holloway is walkable if there is a snowstorm, have you considered that?

  10. I need to read more carefully, missed the 'not' consider! My last remark makes no sense.
    Sorry to confuse, need to sleep soon.
