It's tough being an estate agent

Remember the gold old days of the boom town?

When being an estate agent was easy: put up the advert, handle the bidding war, rake in your 7.5% ommision for no real effort. Those days are over.

Now, you have to drive round the city, sell the products and then sprint over to the next deal.

Here we see a Hootons estate/letting agent car VO54WNW parked while it tries to bring in a bit of business.

And again, another day, elsewhere in Kingsdown.

It's hard not to feel sorry for these people, it must be pretty stressful. And since there aren't going to be any legitimate spaces here, double yellow lines are all they have. One question though: why the pavement? Maybe it's to get the attention of pedestrians. Every customer counts, these days.
