Jolieanna believes knowledge is power and says "Its fair to say that UK estate agents don't have the best of reputations, often featuring in the list of the top 10 most disliked professions. In an industry I'm so passionate about, that saddens me and I really believe that qualifications, regulations, career commitment and the simple principle of keeping the clients best interest at heart can dispel the age old reputation"
