As landlords and investors, I’d like to pick your brains and gain your thoughts. I have been in the industry for 12 years as a letting agent, but doing sales as well, specialising in buy-to-let and student housing.
I have superb relationships with many of my clients – having been to their holiday homes, even funerals.
However, the company I work for, in my opinion, overcharges its clients and takes them for granted. Staff work insane hours to keep up with their workloads for little remuneration, despite the company posting outstanding financial results and continued growth year on year, seeing the firm become the market leader in the area it operates.
So, I am strongly considering going it alone. Not alone because I am tired of lining the directors pocket and paying for his £1.5m home, but because I truly believe the service I provide is what the clients appreciate and they can have this with me directly, for a lower fee.
My question to you, is that if your agent came to you with the proposition to move to him directly when they leave, would you do this, given you have a strong relationship with the individual, or would you stick with the agent irrespective, for fear of change?
I’d appreciate your thoughts!
