If there is one thing I have learned in this past six months of house-hunting, it is that the industry is full of cowboys, crooks and liars. We were let down by three sets of large estate agents who either put little effort into selling our property, strung us along on false pretenses or wanted to squeeze as much out of us as they could. However then came our silver lining. We met an honest and hard-working estate agent called Dean Hope at Laming Hope Residential. His service is much more professional and personalised than larger high street agents. He also has morals, which are hard to find in this sector. I would thoroughly recommend him if you are looking to sell your NW London and outer periphery home at any point.
