There’s no time for time off as an independent estate agent; “you do what you have to do to get the deal done,” says James Bailey after a hectic summer of big deals and sticking it to the big boys.
It is always satisfying when the little guy gets one over on the bigger agents. Whilst many of the competitors seemed to be taking the entire summer off, we experienced our busiest Q3 in years. We have just tied numerous deals including a £25 million sale in Cadogan Square and our lettings team has just let a flat in Cadogan Gardens for £7,500 per week.
Why were we so busy?
