We’re not the most loved of professions, estate agents, but why is that?
Is it the perception of underhand sales tactics? The unreturned phone calls and emails? Lateness to appointments? Or, perhaps, the needless flashy suits and the general ‘geezer’ image?
To be honest, we don’t care, because we’re not like that, and to be fair we don’t think there are many who fit the approve profile left (but there are a few, so be warned!)
A good estate agent should be your ‘trusted advisor’. A person who knows his or her area, knows the market, knows the ins and outs of the legalities, and isn’t afraid to pick up the phone when the news is bad (funnily enough, we all find it easy to make ‘good news’ phone calls).

I think its fair to say that people do have a mistrust of estate agents in general, so is Proper Local in any way different?
Well, obviously, we’d like to think so, but we also have a way of proving that.
From the outset at Proper Local we’ve been using the review site Feefo to gain feedback from our landlords, tenants, buyers and sellers and our rolling 12 month average review score is 4.9 out of 5. Not bad.

Hi there, it's Frank.
Last week I was at Millwall Park and today I'm at Mudchute Park & Farm, and I really reallly love it here.
At the farm you can meet goats, sheep, cows, turkeys, chickens, geese, horses and whatever this is behind me (I think we might have the same hairdresser though).

Now, this is a very pertinent question and we know that it’s one that many landlords, and indeed agents, will be asking themselves right now.
And. Brace yourself. The answer is very simple: yes.
But. There’s a little more to it.
E14, and by that we mean all of the areas which form the postcode – the Isle of Dogs, Limehouse, South Quay, Canary Wharf (although there aren’t actually any residential developments in the business district), Poplar, Blackwall, East India, Blackwall & Leamouth – is witnessing residential development on an unprecedented scale. This year alone, London City Island, Charrington (Providence)Tower and Horizons Tower have all completed resulting in, literally, hundreds of new apartments to rent in E14.
