Alison Platt

Alison PlattA “trolley dolly” turned CEO of Britain’s biggest estate agency, Alison Platt sees no difference between selling bleach and houses. Appointed a non-executive director of Tesco in January 2016, Teddington based Platt has also been managing director of BUPA and worked as a non-excutive director of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office between 2005 and 2010. Of her success, this grammar school girl and “dedicated Manchester United fan” comments: “I feel very lucky and very blessed. I’ve a strong sense in wanting to pay back in terms of investment people have made in me, particularly my mum and dad”.

  1. Put down that coffee, coffee is for closers, you are a loser, you have gained no new listings and sold fuck all this month………But, the leads, I am given are shit. more complicated than selling bleach.

  2. What a stupid comment!!!!!!!!! Typical dumb estate agent!!!!!!!! A house is the biggest purchase anyone makes in their lifetime so it should be a considered decision!!!!!! Buying bleach is nothing of that like!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. It appears Tesco, BUPA, and the Foreign Office take her seriously enough to have her on their board of directors. No wonder we went through bust and doom.

  4. What do you know about anything Rod? I am sure Alison Platt feels chastened by your chastising of her.
    You really are a masochist. There can be no other explanation for the pleasure you get from being made to look so idiotically infantile.

  5. I agree with Rod, on this occasion, Peter, Platt’s statement is idiotic, she has no appreciation for the hard work that is required to market and sell real estate and lacks understanding of the dynamics and processes involved in real estate (property) marketing and selling. The cold canvassing to obtain stock, the stress and anxiety to meet targets so that you can put food on the table for your family to eat. The disappointments of mortgage applications been declined by bank after all the hard work and hopes. Lord Sugar’s “Apprentice” candidates made it look so easy to sell property in one episode last year, the program is manipulated and not real, it is far easier to sell bleach, Discount shops sell bleach for as little as 49 Pence. I would rather sell the “Big issue” than work for this clown called Platt. Alison Platt reminds me of Fred (the shred) Goodwin CEO of a bank, although he had no previous banking experience.

  6. Please, please Matthew submit our resident ignoramus to a “What’s on your mantelpiece?” With two provisos. First explain to him what is a mantelpiece and secondly edit out his habitual use of exclamation marks. I predict his answers (if he is able to provide them) would be bland, boring, trite, humourless and confirm he is the most insensitive idiot in the southern hemisphere.
