Estate agents 'tricks'

Postby JR8 » Wed, 12 Nov 2014 9:11 pm

An hour ago an agent called, and asked if my wife would like to let or sell our home.
My wife replied that she couldn't since we rent it.

An hour later the same agent called back (9pm) and I answered, referring to the discussion with my wife earlier, and 'just checking whether you want to move'.

She was very, very, reluctant to tell me her name and contact info, and avoided answering those questions several times (most striking, given what she was asking of us).

If you are on the "Do Not Call" register you can get her into deep doo doo.

Wonderful, thanks, the sub-page is... https://www.pdpc.gov.sg/individuals/do- ... l-registry

Quick and very very simple (reading to registering, under a minute).

We were on this list at our last place, but have had no problems where we are now. But experience from here and abroad tells me that once you start getting calls like this you become a 'hot number' and the frequency of them only increases.
