Why we don’t turn up in suit!!

The image of an Estate or Letting Agent is usually attributed to smart suits and fast cars. We decided not to follow the herd.
When visiting properties, either to speak to a tenant or to view a house ready for marketing, quite often you’ll find anomalies. These can generally require you to do manual work. So best to leave the suits at home.
It’s so frustrating when I’ve had to get dressed up for an appointment and then booked to go to a property on the way back to find that I’m needed to do work and can’t.
I’ve dealt with getting water meter readings this week, which required me to be on my knees cutting round the edge of the lawn to prise the lid off man holes. All this just to take the readings. Another visit met with a tenant complaint that some panel pins had come out of a door, this was fixed on the spot. As my gran always said a stitch in time saves nine.
