Despite public perceptions, being an estate agent involves far more than just showing people around properties. We're handling a legal transaction and are safeguarding a person's biggest asset! It can be stressful and the hours long.
Here at London Residential we take care to create a nurturing, supportive environment for all our staff - especially when the chips are down both in the professional and personal sense. We think people perform at their best when they are calm, rested and surrounded by a fabulous team - and we hope our fellow property professionals across London provide the same workplace environment as we do.
Therefore we were saddened to read about an employment situation within another estate agency that ended on a sour note. The pressure we sometimes feel is immense and a few people lose sight of good working practices and do crazy things - perhaps this is what happened here?
Let's look after one another - life's hard and stressed enough as it is.
