The client, an avid acquirer of property, has the natural suspicions that come with a £1bn fortune.
The bilious and withered face of treachery has risen to confront me this week. The perceived image of an estate agent is the Tim-nice-but-dim character: a decent sort of chap (or chapess) not blessed with the finest grey matter. This portrayal may be pejorative but I haven’t come across many intellectuals in my line of work – myself included. Doing a good job depends on communication, integrity and straight dealing, which GG and I pride ourselves on. There’s the part that involves networking but that’s the same in any business.
