Which is only exacerbated by the fact that they have no motivation to get you a lower rent because their fee is a percentage of what you'll pay. Someone once here made a deal with his agent that any decrease in his rent will go to his agent as part of the fee. You can try this or a variation thereo...

Mr SV should ask people if they enjoyed the segment. Oh wait... ?? You must be one of the unemotional ones from the survey. Survey methodology was to ask people if they experienced various emotions. Asking a local if they enjoyed something would probably be equally fruitless... WOW!! Excellent Anal...

Perhaps Gallup missed the point that S'poreans just say no when a question makes them uncomfortable, or when they don't know they answer, I think. So perhaps what it really shows is that a bunch of people got cold calls asking about there emotions and said no, no, no, no, yes, no, good bye. Serious...

Its semi furnished (Includes dining table, AC, Washing machine, 1 wooden almirah).. But my case was slightly different I told agent that his fees would ...

On hindsight I don’t think I should hold it against her that she was lying to me when I know she didn’t tell the truth to her husband!! I don’t wish to seek revenge for getting my money back is enough restitution. I am happy to be out :) But it bothers me to think that she will make a fool of someon...

However, most respectfully I will like to disagree with the suggestion that there wasn’t something fishy or it wasn’t her intention to defraud me. May be not i...
