    Following a three-year stint as an Area Director for Foxtons, Cook went on to head up Chestertons' sales and lettings operations in central London, before becoming a Partner at top Knightsbridge boutique WA Ellis (which recently merged with JLL).

Choosing the right estate agent is a critical decision; it can make the difference between getting a really good price and not selling your property at all.
