I am thinking of selling my house in the new year (I live just off the Crystal Palace triangle). Can anyone recommend an Estate Agent in the area?

I'd sell it yourself, as I did, and save yourself several thousand in commission! :) I used Property Broker

Conrad Fox or Cooper Giles (although Peter isnt your greatest personalty! but he gets the job done) being both local agents.

I thought it was a long shot! Have got a 2 bed garden flat. Have to sell asap as I am expecting a baby in June and there is no room at the inn!

Why don't you start off by advertising it as a private sale on here?

Or you could rent it out? Mrs S and I are looking to move out of our great 2 bed house with awesome garden but feel we have to move on as the windows are OLD OLD OLD single glazing and I can see the 5 pound notes flying out the windows.

So, we are looking to stay in the GH/CP area and would love to avoid the estate agents.

Or you could try secondary glazing, clipped on for the winter.

(I've also read about taping clingfilm over the windows and using a hairdryer to make it taut, but never tried it. Yet.)

. . .

"Cooper Giles (although Peter isnt your greatest personalty! "

What, the Jack Dee of Crystal Palace?

Must be the most agreeable and straightforward estate agent I've dealt with.

we already have the plastic/ hairdryer approach on!!
On a windy day you can see the plastic boundcing against the pane as the air gushes in.

Alas we cant wrap the entire house in plastic (or could we???) maybe we could turn it into an art installation. I think 'The ice cube dispenser' would be a good name.
