Who ya gonna call?





When you have a question or a problem, where do you go for the answer? Most probably a search engine such as Google. 

When you are browsing through your favourite social networking site, what do you tend to share? Perhaps interesting stories or clever images?

When you are working out, do you possibly listen to interesting podcasts or to the latest business audiobook? 

When you are doing research to purchase a hotel room or perhaps buy some new business software, what do you look for? Perhaps Trip Advisor with its testimonials or ratings for the hotel? And for the software, maybe a research or comparison report for the software?
In each case, it's content that solves our problems, makes us laugh or gives us the idea for our next journey.   Through content, you connect.

and now for something far more important ... Joey the Lettings Dog!

Are Countrywide becoming the Tesco's of UK Estate Agency?

10 years ago – Tesco’s could do no wrong, the darling of the stock market, huge profits, they were invincible ..  but now, still huge – Tesco’s are not the force they once were. Tesco’s Senior executives were pushed out of the business which also suffered a culture change which was "not for the better". .. and that made me think, the of the possible similarities between what happened at Tesco’s and what appears to be happening now at Countrywide
For years, anyone who had dealings with Countrywide would come away with respect for the apparent clinical efficiency of its business model. One company, many brands. The senior management team had so much depth of experience .. both a mile wide and a mile deep. Countrywide played hard but

Cheap Fees in Estate Agency

My good lady wife loves shopping online. In fact, Amazon, they rang her last week to check she was Ok as she hadn’t ordered anything for three days (only kidding .. they rang after two days)
She ordered some Gin glasses (not from Amazon) from the internet – you know the ones that look like a goldfish bowl on a stick. The glass seller put the box of six glasses (the box being quite flimsy in the first place) in another brown cardboard box. This brown cardboard box was a couple of inches bigger around the sides of glass box, but the same height as the
