My criticism surrounding the book is that over the year of running the agency there wasn't a greater turn over of staff (which is common in agency), and more sculduggery, I wanted more and a satisfying ending. However it does lead on for there to be sequels. Please let there be a sequel.
Can't say I like estate agents any more than I did at the start (not a lot) but it's a great and enlightening read and well worth the money after some of the rubbish my wife has downloaded for her Kindle. You can see why he's written for papers and magazines just wonder why he still sells houses?
As someone who has seen their fair share of dodgy leases and even dodgier agents, the view from the other side of the fence is an amusing and a startlingly frank one. Anonymity allows 'SA' to pull no punches with his descriptions of colleagues, rivals and punters alike.
With a concise yet descriptive writing style, I feel like I have got to know the characters SA meets on a regular basis. Long may the Diary continue, and I hope more people get to read this! A sleeper hit!
Secret Agent will challenge your preconceptions (sometimes), confirm your worst suspicions (occasionally) and make you laugh (often). One thing is certain - as the book info says: you may never look at the men and women in suits and sign-written cars the same way again. I know I haven't.
We all thought they were whizzing around in their Beamers, indulging in highly imaginative sales literature writing and propping up wine bars in the evenings... But...No... It appears that they are put-upon, hard-working, misunderstood souls who are desperately poorly rewarded for their thankless workload......
However, in the real world - it's too far-fetched for me!
All that misery doesn't make for a good read either - Sorry!!
General tone is of a person not to happy in his job but this does not distract from the humourist element in his stories of his working life

As a property man I have to say this is spot on. The characters are true to life, in fact I'm sure I've met some of them. A thoroughly enjoyable read. Five stars and a free EPC...Published on 22 Feb. 2013 by John
I have followed the blog on and off and read the first book, which was in some respects just more of the same. Read morePublished on 9 Feb. 2012 by Jackie C
I bought the Agents Diary compilation and enjoyed it, this book gives a more in-depth look at the estate agency business but still features the same 'characters'. Read morePublished on 9 Jan. 2012 by JT
The Secret Agent is a master of the blog. Funny, self depreciating, world weary and -very simply- a great comedy writer. I love what he does and cannot recommend him highly enough. Read morePublished on 1 Jan. 2012 by The Sussex Idler
