About the employer

Understandably, some people have a pretty dim view of estate agents, and it seems many have a horror story or two to share – us included. But our mission is to change the profession by example…and hopefully end up being a bit less lonely at dinner parties and the school gates.

“Fairness” and “honesty” don’t often appear in the same sentence as “estate agent”, but we’re staking everything on it – which also involves being honest about what you actually need from an estate agent these days.

The Fishneedwater team share the same belief that if you treat clients fairly and do things properly, they won’t mind the lack of branded minis or beers in the office fridge.
