Under Offer: Estate Agents on the Job (6 x 60′) – A new series that unlocks the doors to the profession some of us love to hate: estate agents.
It gives viewers exclusive access to the working lives of 11 estate agents from across the whole country as they help their clients in their quest to become home owners.
In a series filled with drama, humour and vibrant personalities, viewers will see first-hand how these estate agents combine market and location knowledge with the gift of the gab, trying to get their clients what they want.
From one agent who applies his idiosyncratic style to selling £39 million apartments in Mayfair to another from the North East – who has around 30 per cent repossessions on her books but a persuasive touch and creative marketing ideas – the agents share tips and tricks.
From million-pound pads in Kensington and Chelsea and second-home country cottages in the Cotswolds, to terraced houses in County Durham and even fantasy islands in Scotland, this series follows the people who broker the biggest purchases that most of us will ever make. It also provides the chance to see inside homes across Britain and to meet those who are moving house, revealing the human interest stories behind one of life’s most stressful events.
The series follows people along the property chain and provides a revealing insight into the British economy and the state of the housing market across the country. Is there more to being an estate agent than meets the eye? Do estate agents live up to their reputation? What’s life really like for the middleman? How far do these agents go to secure a deal?
