A NEW series starts tonight following the highs and lows of the people that broker the biggest purchases most of us will ever make – the estate agents.
With the current property market more complex and starkly polarised than ever before, the fortunes of estate agents across the UK are put in the spotlight in Under Offer: Estate Agents On The Job.
The fly-on-the-office-wall six part series starts tonight at 8pm on BBC2.
Estate agent to the super-rich, Gary Hersham operates in some of the world’s most expensive postcodes.
His latest instruction, a £39 million town-house complete with eight bathrooms, private gym and cinema, is up for grabs in Mayfair W1 – the heart of prime central London.
It’s a very different world for Lynne Blaney in Spennymoor, County Durham – where houses start at auction for £1.
Exeter, one of the UK’s most desirable places to live, sees rookie estate agent Lewis Rossiter juggling two deadlines – a pregnant wife and a demanding client who wants her house sold – fast.
And, in Birmingham, veteran agent Dave Simms’ dog-eat-dog world, two couples, desperate to downsize, compete for the same prized bungalow in Birmingham.
What do you think about estate agents? Are they unfairly branded?
