Do estate agents/realtors have offices and do they need them?
I'm writing a piece for a well know publication in the UK about the over exposure of the British high street to estate agents.
For decades every estate agent has had an office where they conduct business. Over the last few years, online agents have started to make a dent in the market (approx 8% of the market) with no high street presence but still an agents office is still important to them.
My question is firstly whether this is the same all over Europe and agents having offices and secondly whether you believe they actually need them.
