And our award for Estate Agency Boss of the Year goes to…

The New Year might be only three days old but we already have a clear winner for Estate Agency Boss of the Year.

Mr Rutley – aka grumpy old estate agent and whose people skills are second to none – has delivered his annual motivational address to staff.

He told them to be fired with enthusiasm, or be fired with enthusiasm.

Come on, Peter Knight, book him as your keynote speaker for this year’s EA Masters. You know it’s exactly what the likes of Messrs Knight and Frank need to put fire in the belly of their already pumped-up negotiators.

Mr Rutley’s Twitter account is here:

If you scroll down a little, you will also be able to see what he gave his beautiful Lithuanian PA Veronika for Christmas.

HR departments, employment tribunals and feminists everywhere – look away now.

    HA! I know a lot of agents that could do with this speech!

    Well done Mr Rutley…Messr’s Knight and Frank couldn’t have said it better…oh hang on a minute….

    I love this Twitter account and his long suffering Veronika! Don’t tell him I’ve been conducting appraisals of her and her skills!!

  3. Peter Knight

    Sorry Ros, we won’t be booking him for the EA Masters – it took another Mr Knight an age to get rid of Mr Rutley; from what he’s told me, Mr.R is unemployable as well as so last century!

    Mind you with over 5,000 followers he’s not doing too bad for a grumpy old s*d!
