Looks like the Maroondah Leader has started a new “suck-up-to-the-estate-agents” column called “Ask the experts”. (We have previously looked at how local rags court those who direct consumer dollars to them in the form of client-paid advertising in “Journo Sucks Like A High-Speed Hoover“).
This time the Maroondah Leader poses the legal question, apparently on behalf of consumers who need to know,
“What happens if I enter into an agency agreement and later change my mind? Can I withdraw my property from sale?”But then, instead of having a lawyer answer this legal question, they trot out as their expert none other than local estate agent Phillip Webb of Phillip Web Real Estate!
