Have i done the right thing?

When i got up this morning i was fully intending telling the estate agent that we no longer required his services.  It would probably have been something of a world record - sacking him after just 6 days!
However after talking on the phone i have to admit that i was bribed into giving him another chance.  His apologies for the problems, assurances of the highest quality service from this point forwards, and promises of continuous newspaper advertising for the first few weeks as a 'feature property' had me convinced.  I suppose i am a bit of a pushover really .

What would you have done?
He had originally promised that we would have the house details to look at on Friday (they never appeared).  We got a phone call Saturday to say he needed to take more photos could he pop round? (he never showed up).  We phoned on Monday - he wasnt in the office but would definitely phone us back Tuesday. (he didnt but we did get the house details through the door).  Then the house details turned out to be the biggest load of [email protected]* i have ever seen from any estate agent EVER!!

Graz thinks that i should have told him to bog off and phoned one of the other agents.   But I like to think the best of people and I would like to think that he is going to put in extra effort and get everything just right in order to keep our business (and his %).

Hmmm ... maybe i am being rather naive?

I did tell him that there was no way i was signing a 12 week sole agency agreement with him (he dropped it to 8 weeks) which i am quite proud of myself for doing - usually i just agree to stuff in order to avoid any sort of confrontation but i had decided to be calm and stand my ground about what i wanted, which i did.

So have i done the right thing?  I guess only time will tell - about 8 weeks should do it.
