the 7 reasons why you aren't as successful in the lettings/estate agency industry as you feel you should be .. 
1. aspiration

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
