    Wish you would take my Estate Agent on. My property is within Bromsgrove border, I pay rates to Bromsgrove , vote in Bromsgrove, have to use West Mercia Police and Fire Services, and waste collections, but my agent will not promote my property as being in Bromsgrove as I live in Birmingham and Bromsgrove only 'look after' my property, he says as I am 9 miles from Bromsgrove (centre) so I don't live in Bromsgrove however am Equidistant to Birmingham (centre) being approx 8 mile's away. Nightmare..

    Employment agencies used to use just the same tactics back in the '70s, putting cards in their windows advertising jobs that didn't exist, making you do an hour-long test, signing up with them - only to be told the job had gone. i'm sure this 'bait and switch' tactic was outlawed. the same should spply to letting agencies.

    Website entrepreneur was a very pleasant cunt indeed.
    Obviously he read the Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg biographies before starting his own savage, care-for-no-one, money draining filter/service.

    That pathway isnt actually owned by sterling devere, its public and infact anything that happens outside their door isnt for them to take action against.

    Don't use bait and switch or pressure selling techniques, but are introducing more stringent controls so that the bait and switch type stuff (that they don't do) won't happen again. Yeah ok.....

    if your company are training their staff to act like thugs when stuff goes wrong you're either a criminal organization or have your company situated in north korea

    "Casey was paying £600 a month for one room in this flatshare...." and it was a shit-hole. Solution? Move out of London. I pay slightly more than that, for a 3 bed detached house with en-suite, two large lounges, a big kitchen and 1/3 acre garden. Oh, with off street parking. Yes, you'll earn a bit less in the countryside, but you'll be much happier, have more money to spend and you won't get stabbed.

    The name Sterling De Vere sounds evil. It's a step away from De Vil. Then the logo Is like a stylised evil vagina.

    Joe can you complain to the company Wish for using people's photos... youtubers have approached their lawyers and have been told it will cost them lots of money only to get their photo taken down from Wish's website...

    Holy what? This CEO seems like a genuinely good human being and I am SHOOKETH. The way he interacted with Joe and addressed public concern was honestly so incredible that I kinda wanna use spareroom and I don't even need it :/

  • ジェイI Look Like a Toe

    When one of the "letting agents" was getting all up in Joe's face and Joe said he was getting frightened, that was actually SO BAD! Like, the other dude next to the agent had to PHYSICALLY hold the guy back so he didn't touch Joe just because there were cameras about! Scary to think what would've happened if there were no cameras...

    Sterling De Vere, if you check the Google rating , it's pretty high, until you check the first 4 names that left the reviews and also what other reviews they left on the platform, you'll soon realise all the people that left reviews for Sterling De Vere also magically visited the same locations and left reviews at the same locations, what a coincidence... that would already put me off, plus what's up with that gangster with the hoodie, that isn't a way to run a business, glad they got fined.

    Sterling De Vere will be back on Spare Room in due course. It's not in Spare Room's interest to ban letting agencies. How else are they going to make money? 90% of letting agencies are shit - so they have to turn a blind eye. They've booted Sterling off for now as a token gesture. But when things have cooled down they'll be back on.

    An illustrative example of how corporate self regulation does not work. There should also be no surprise that a company will continue to take liberties with its consumer base, up to the point where their profits are at risk.
    Watch dogs and accountability programs will always be fighting a losing battle, even as funding sources dry up, and thus the price of an honest service remains absolute vigilance. Sometimes, all you have left are the clowns.
