Time flies when you’re having fun. I am fast approaching the end of my tenth week at Monty’s in the Central London Office Agency team, and already my time with the firm has been a fantastic and rewarding experience.
Not only have I been given the responsibility for undertaking my own viewings on a regular basis acting on behalf of landlords and occupiers in relation to office acquisitions and disposals, I have also gained experience in negotiating deals and leases.
Life in office agency is fast paced and requires me to travel around central London a lot attending office launches and viewings, subsequently I am now a self-proclaimed London underground whiz kid. This is what attracted me to agency in the first place, there is a good balance between being in the office environment and getting out and about meeting clients which range from large institutional landlords to high net worth individuals.
I have learnt so much through gaining hands on practical experience on a daily basis under the guidance of my peers which has allowed me to put into practice a number of the skills and competencies that I learnt at university.
I am very much looking forward to my remaining few months in agency and the challenges that may lie ahead, let’s hope they are exciting and stimulating as ever.
