Estate Agents

2010-2011

During the recession period of Summer 2007 to Christmas 2007, 32,000 of the country's 80,000 estate agents lost their jobs. This was a direct result of the decrease in house prices and of house sales.

Now that we are officially out of the recession, the housing market is showing positive signs of improvement and those remaining in the profession are subjected to severe pressure invoked not only by their sales driven work environment but also by their societal peers using them as a barometer for the country's financial recovery.
