Exeter estate agent to star in new BBC TV series

Exeter estate agent to star in new BBC TV series

EXETER will feature in a new television series promising to unlock the doors on the professionals many people love to hate – estate agents.

Under Offer: Estate Agents On The Job will air its first of six episodes on BBC Two next week to give viewers access to the working lives of 11 estate agents, including one from Exeter.

Lewis Rossiter, 31, branch manager of Bradleys Estate Agents in Cowick Street, will be seen juggling two deadlines: a pregnant wife and a demanding client who wants her house sold – fast.

Lewis, who lives in St Thomas with wife Vanessa, 32, and their three children: Sophie, for, Ada, two, and six-month-old Cohen, was filmed over a period of eight months until December.

“I’ve watched the whole series, and it was surreal seeing myself doing what I do every day,” he said.

Exeter – regarded as one of the country’s most desirable places to live – is given plenty of air time.

Lewis said: “Exeter comes across really well, as a city that’s absolutely booming. It’s a great advertisement.”

Viewers will see how the estate agents combine market and location knowledge with the sales technique – to achieve success.

Lewis was chosen to take part in the series following a short telephone conversation with the producer after recommendation from Bradleys managing director Francis Marshall.

“I had a 30-minute telephone call, and then a few months later I was being followed,” Lewis said.

The first episode to be screened on Wednesday shows Lewis attempt what turns out to be his “most stressful” sale in more than two years of work.

The question is whether or not the birth of baby can wait until after Lewis has completed the deal. “I told my wife not to have the baby until it was finished!” he said.

The cameras recorded hundreds of hours of footage, but the editors could only feature a fraction in the final cut.

Lewis said: “The series is very entertaining. Of the 11 estate agents, I feature prominently. The editors obviously went for the most extreme footage, but I’m not upset or disappointed about that.”

The final episode will see Lewis discover if he has won an accolade at the company’s annual awards night, attended by 130 staff and the TV cameras.

The first episode of the BBC Two series will be screened on April 9, at 8pm.
