Whilst it is fair to say that I can only count on one hand the number of Estate Agents amongst my friends, there is an unspoken ‘code of conduct’ that exists between most estate agents.
There are however exceptions and I am sad to report that last week a line was crossed when a not so professional competitor declared on a valuation that "Claytons are not as good as they used to be!" - I can only put his comments down to immaturity and lack of professionalism (fortunately so did the owner). Consequently we were given the instruction and have already secured an offer of £18,000 in excess of the said accusers valuation - perhaps this also speaks volumes about his lack of experience too?
As for what was said I can confidently declare "We are not as good as we used to be...we are BETTER!
