Under Offer: Estate Agents On The Job airs in April 2014 and gives viewers exclusive access to the working lives of 11 estate agents from across the whole country as they help their clients in their quest to become home owners.

In a series filled with drama, humour and vibrant personalities, viewers will see first-hand how these estate agents combine market and location knowledge with the gift of the gab, trying to get their clients what they want.

From one agent who applies his idiosyncratic style to selling £39 million apartments in Mayfair to another from the North East – who has around 30 per cent repossessions on her books but a persuasive touch and creative marketing ideas – the agents share tips and tricks.

From million-pound pads in Kensington and Chelsea and second-home country cottages in the Cotswolds, to terraced houses in County Durham, ordinary city homes in the South West and even fantasy islands in Scotland, this series follows the people who broker the biggest purchases that most of us will ever make. It also provides the chance to see inside homes across Britain and to meet those who are moving house, revealing the human interest stories behind one of life’s most stressful events.

The series follows people along the property chain and provides a revealing insight into the British economy and the state of the housing market across the country. Is there more to being an estate agent than meets the eye? Do estate agents live up to their reputation? What’s life really like for the middleman? How far do these agents go to secure a deal?

Commissioned by Alison Kirkham, Head of Commissioning Factual Features & Formats, the series was filmed between June 2013 and January 2014 by the independent production company betty. Annabel Hobley is the executive producer and Simon Draper is the series producer for Betty.

Alison Kirkham, BBC Head of Commissioning for Factual Features & Formats, says: “Estate agents are irresistibly watchable characters. In this series, they offer fascinating insights into Britain’s extraordinarily varied property market. From multi-million-pound houses through to repossessed homes auctioned with a starting price of just a pound. Along the way the audience can pick up insider tips on how best to buy and sell their own homes.”

The above is a press release from the BBC website. It will be very interesting to see how the agents featured come across and in particular, does their on-screen performance match that of their allAgents rating. It should be fascinating.
