Strictly in the name of charity: We need one more dancer

One more dancer is being asked to volunteer to take part in the industry’s very own Strictly Come Dancing challenge.

He or she will be competing for the glitterball alongside luminaries such as light-on-his-feet Bob Scarff, the ex-head of agency at Countrywide; Simon Bradbury of Thomas Morris (sevERN!); and the painfully quiet and retiring Simon Whale, of Reapit (we can only hope he manages to dig deep and find the hint of extrovert that must surely be lurking somewhere within).

The event takes place at the annual Agents Giving ball on September 30, and training is already under way.

Each dancer is paired with a professional and must take five lessons, which will be funded by a Rightmove grant, and required to raise sponsorship of £1,500.

The dance-off will be in front of the ball attendees plus a panel of judges who will include a TV professional.

The reason for the last minute vacancy? Sadly, Nicholas Court had to drop out after cracking a rib – we must emphasise this was not an injury sustained in rehearsal!

The other participants are: Ed Woolgar, Harrods Lettings; Nicky Stevenson, of Property Academy; Nicola Osborne, Paul Hannah estate agents; Jon Byers, Anderson Rose; Bob Scarff; Simon Whale; Simon Bradbury; Maxine Lester, whose agency carries her name; Ben Ridgway, of I Am Sold; and Jennie Elliott, of Wrights Estate Agents.

If you would like to take part in the Strictly Come Dancing event, please contact Yvonne Martin at Agents Giving, tel 01372 370895 or email – or for more information, visit the website at

    On behalf of Agents Giving Charity, thank you so much Property Industry Eye – I’m told we’ve been inundated with requests for the last dance spot at The Strictly Come Dancing Ball and several tables too, only a handful left by the way! We’ve had EA’s from across the country get in touch – just goes to show your pulling power. If anyone wants tickets for the Ball then please contact

    One competitor down due to ‘accidental injury’

    I welcome any new challengers
