      Exactly. The options run out in four months, so who wouldn’t sell? Nothing to see here, move along!

    You have the answer. Leave Rightmove! Many talk about it and a few do and find that they don’t just survive, they thrive.

    Very well deserved.  He’s done wonders for the share price.

    What someone gets paid, what they do with their money , their shares should not be of interest to anyone. If his employers  pay and reward  Mr. Brooks-Johnson  well it’s because he’s doing, has done, a good job.


    Rightmove have found a way to tax most estate agents every month, they have figured out the words and strategies to convince intelligent, rational, business people to pay too much for a service they don’t actually need to sell property. Over half the agents who list with Rightmove have  little or no available stock so if Mr. Brooks- Johnson can keep getting money out of agents for no logical reason he should be  admired, respected and rewarded well. that is his job and no one can deny he is doing it well.
