Recruiting a head Honcho for the South Comment from an estate agent gencyInsider NOVEMBER 30, 2016 AT 9:17 AM I just read the full job spec. There is not a single mention of experience in estate agency being a requirement or even desirable. They might just as well have said ‘Don’t bother applying if you have ever been within a sniff of an estate agency’. The line that really gets me is this: Personal and authentic – you will create your own personal brand, being approachable to customers and colleagues alike, with a strong sense of humility. Create your own personal brand? Yeah, right. And the moment that ‘personal brand’ conflicts with the Master Plan you will be out of the door quicker than you can say ‘I am pursuing an exciting new opportunity’. hxxps://www.countrywidecareers.co.uk/my-account/vacancyView.php?requirementId=16444&source=TWT Testing new lows today Employees of CWD are being referred to in the market as refugees

Not one of the BODS is a property professional mostly accountants No chartered surveyors anyone with hands on proeprty experince The lower tier Platt has bought in atr from media and retail They actually ahve brands competing side y sidein the same areas if you think buying out a practice at probably 12 X net profit and then shutting down the officewith o prospect of paying the debt is good buiness then fair enoigh This will be below 150p by the new year hxxp://www.propertyindustryeye.com/spicerhaart-snaps-up-former-countrywide-retail-director/ View of former employee on a CWD refugee as they are now called eil7696 NOVEMBER 29, 2016 AT 9:03 AM Having started my career under Kim in East London 13 years ago I would happily describe her as the best Regional I worked under during 12 years at Countrywide.

Rents more likely to rise as landlords pass on the cost of the Governments tax changes gradually stopping them from offsetting mortgage interest against the rents. Rising rents may mean more tenants moving or buying so more business. CWD might be closing offices but probably in towns where they have more than one office. Makes sense - saves money. Senior staff: You have a point about the Board not having property experience however you are wrong about the Executive team who do the day to day running of the business. I have read their profiles and many of them have a property background.

Bakurs . I think it would be optimistic that overall revenues are likley to increase generally in the near future . Belvoir announce that revenue from lettings will fall about 10%with the tenat fees fiasco This does put sharply into focus that even recently Platt shelled out a fancy price earlier in the year for the lettings agents of Finders Keepers and Patterson Bow which she wouldnt have factored in the price paid in this likley loss of revenue She ahs done a complete U turn on expansion closing down offices she has only recently paid good money .Redundancies might be good for reducing costs but in a people business desperately bad for morale . Looking at the articles in Property eye certainly she seems to haave thrown out some of the babies with the bathwater in an attempt to cut out the deadwood .Some of her senior staff getting plum jobs with successful independents .She has populated her team with industry outsiders . This must create a lot of tension and bad feelng To me the rot has set in and the whole behmoth will unravel Bad news for the individual shareholder

hillofwad But, isn't what you say all in the price now (sorry for those who bought a year ago)? Unless, of course, you think the company is going to implode. In which case, the debt is obviously an issue. I would have thought the idea with non-tech areas like estate agents is to buy low-tech outfits and apply your new tech to them, thus adding value. I hear the view that they have overpaid for these acquisitions, which might be the case at this juncture. But, there are a couple of possible imminent macro-trends that would make them eventually seem not so overvalued: the Trump-inspired global reflation and the consequently continued and probably increased need for rental accommodation. Of course, it will all end in a giant global debt implosion. But, in the meantime, there may well be a period of sunshine for CWD to make a return to shareholders buying at these levels. I'm obviously not expecting this to happen in the near term. But, it seems to me that sectors get beaten down for a couple of years and then a spark out of nothing produces a rally. Who would have thought that AAL would rise like a phoenix this year? All it took was a new $ bull market and now the prospect of Trump's infrastructure plans are rekindling investor optimism.

Bakunin If you like what they are trying to do re technology -You then have to ask the question why the BODS until the summer were still on a buying spree of low tech product? Surely with all the changes thsi year ,stamp duty Brexit you must realise this ahs done irrperable damage to the company and balance sheet?

King Just a few shorts closing Once listed agents are in a downward spiral the long term prognosis is a complete unravel Savills being the mighty oak .... You are all forgetting the debt pile . The asset base of the company is the mythical beast "goodwill" which leavethe premises as soon as the office closed and the top guys who are doing the deals leave elsewhere They have overpaid for a whole shedful of buinesses The morale at CWD is at the lowest ebb .Any self respecting negotaiter who is half decent is on their way

Going against the tide here. I like what they are trying to do with new technology/processes to shake things up. You can't make good returns for shareholders if the business is dependent on highly-remunerated key personnel. The letting business is only going to get bigger. The new generation know that property is over-priced and that the country's debt is too high to embark on a massive social housing spree, so they are renting and living for the day. They have no interest in wealth accumulation. This is no good for the future of the country. There is nobody who hates buy-to-letters more than me and very few of this generation are going to consider bringing up families in such accommodation. So, we will get a massive indigenous population decline like in Italy, the trend of low-skilled, 10-to-a-house immigration will continue and Britain will be unrecognisable in 20 years' time. Unless they allow property prices to crash this time at the next recession... By the time any of this is confronted, CWD may very well have produced some decent returns for those buying at the current share price.

King LOL Revenue growing since the previous financial year!! They have shelled out millions buying expensive turnover which has gone out the back door and not only that closed offices to help it on its way . The idea of buying these busineses was that turnover was going to increase substantially-it hasnt Expensive mistake with a debt pile unlikley to be eroded. They are probably going to lose about 8% of their lettings revenue and the best that Platt can offer is that she is looking forward to working with the Govt on this issue . What picking up a shovel to help dig the grave She has appointed a team around her with no specialist knowledge of property What a farce Chopping and changing policy The professional managers must be totally disillusioned Take those rose tinted spectacles off. She couldnt hit a barn door

After making two attempts to speak to the CWD, Bod with no luck. you can guess what I did next........ WJ. I would suggest the answer was being annoyed with yourself for not trading with the trend and waking up to increased losses this morning.

As I say I've covered my short thus morning due to my target being meet however there stills looks room for further falls. Maybe I was a little understated in my profit target. Certainly wouldn't want to be long in this stock.

Commenting on the Group's performance, Alison Platt, CEO said: "We have made good progress this year" Is she having a laugh. If the share price going from over £4 to 1.70p is good progress I would hate to see what poor progress would bring. Where do these idiots come from? PS If it's true kmann was buying on the way down I can only sympathise with him. Must be nursing hefty losses.

Draw no joy from that This was always going to end up badly when you buy some elses turnover Agents are a canny bunch and they save the best deals for themselves Nice work if you can get it being paid a nice tidy capital sum for past deals which are unlikley to repeat themselves She hasnt got a clue at least Belvoir were able to instantly put a figure on it on the impact This will be soon be below 150p
