A ‘funeral’ is due to be held tomorrow to mark the “death” of high street estate agents.
The event, likely to draw criticisms of being of doubtful taste, is being organised by online agent easyProperty.
The publicity stunt is due to be held in London, starting outside a Foxtons’ office and will consist of a three-mile funeral procession led by easyProperty boss Rob Ellice and followed by some 40 people dressed up as pin-striped estate agents, complete with New Orleans-style jazz band. Its route will take the parade through areas with several estate agents’ office.
Media have been invited along to provide coverage of the event.
