Sorry cant agree with that “on the ground” although I do agree with Jeremy
We are still as busy, all be it, with less “stock” which is not unusual in Dec/Jan and vendors wary of vieiwngs
In fact 3 have asked us ONLY to use “off market” marketing on a low key basis but its bringing results and covid safe viewings
We even had a 4 way…[Read more]
Great local initiative by Mike. I think this could be the way forward to break the RM monopoly
Divide (the areas LOL) and conquer!
All power to you Mike
No surprise there
What ever the situation is at present you cant beat a “hands on” viewing
There is nothing in a virtual viewing that can give you a “real feel” of the location, the property and the area
Its all too overrated to me
Yes, its somewhere to start, but certainly not somewhere to end
100% agree Mr Gibbs !
Thats because we work hard to earn them. !!!!
As any of my clients many of whom return time after time to instruct me
Just read our reviews
This is a more recent one from a lawyer!

Glad to have taken a complex high-value residential disposal through to completion today,…[Read more]
Seems Im not the only one….
Quote from a FB page today
“A bit slow on the up take here, but Jesus Christ! I’ve just notice rightmove have put their rates back up to normal since last month with no warning!!
Come on guys now is the time for war. We
Need this whole group to say today that you put the rates back to where they were or we g…[Read more]
Lets see what happens when the next invoices drop on the mat during the next lockdown!
All i know is that lots of smaller independents including many from the Say No campaign have also signed. As far as we are concerned we are backing any contenders who will stand up to RM. As we said at the start they have had it their own way for far to long, treat agents with contempt and ignore any financial realities of running an Estate…[Read more]
For all the doubters…
Well this is the end of the 1st “no RM “week and we are going cold turkey….
I wanted to tell you we are doing ok although it seems a tad quieter, maybe unconnected just a slow down in our area.
HOWEVER I thought this might be of interest
We listed a flat to rent on our page, Zooplas and thenothern postals we uploa…[Read more]
Totally agree with another leading NW London Independent agent. Well said Steve
Well done guys! RM keep making the same mistakes (as they seem to be) more will vote with feet and follow. Zoopla will soon be NO 1…if only down to their charging policy being about 50% cheaper
Hold the press
Make that 2 more…..Just been advised of another
From little acorns etc..
At least 1 more agent Im aware of resigned from 1/10
For the information of the followers my notice has been served. I will now be taking advantage of the continued discount offered by Zoopla.
Lets see what life without Rightmove will be like (in October LOL)
100% agree Mark Flynn
UTTER NONSENSE !
We attracted enough instructions during lockdown except, wisely, we recommended our clients to wait to complete the listings
There was no point in marketing occupied sale properties during the period as viewings were impossible in general. And Video views just dont do it for selling
On vacant rental properties we continued…[Read more]
Following this article I would like to point out I have had a phone call and apology from Katrine Sporle, the TPO herself.
She has also emailed me. I think this puts the matter to bed.
Thank you for taking my call just now.
I would like to apologise unreservedly to you for the unintentional upset caused by our collaboration with…[Read more]
PS Just agreed a sale that fell through prior lockdown
£5000 less than previous sale (under 1.5% lower that’s all)
Murray Lee, Dreamview Estates commented on the post, Rate at which agents are leaving Rightmove accelerates 8 months ago
And I’m sure there will be more after the SayNoToRightmove / Iain White Webinar on 3/6.
If you have not signed up please feel free to contact me for the link.
Once that airs many will realise they need us more than we need them!
100% agree Russell. We have been busy before lockdown and as busy after
3 sales agreed in 1 week
1 was even after a bidding war
Keep spreading the word
