Working in an estate agents was something I always wanted to do because I enjoy working with different people and challenging myself in a business. My career in estate agency began in 2007 where I worked as a Junior Lettings Negotiator for my family owned independent estate agents in Coltishall. After two years I was promoted to Lettings Manager and Partner where I helped to build and shape the future of the business. Three years later I sold my shares because I wanted to face a new challenge and I moved on to work as the Director for a well known estate agents in Norfolk.

The history behind the term the Golden Triangle is very interesting and it dates back to the 1800s. During this time wealthy professionals and tradesman began living in the areas just outside of the city to keep away from the busy city centre and the often unhygienic conditions. The most popular areas on a modern map of Norwich are Newmarket Road, Ipswich Road and Lime Tree road and the term the Golden Triangle refers to the isosceles triangle that is formed when the areas are joined together. In essence the Golden Triangle stretches from UEA to the outskirts of the city centre with Unthank Road seen as the centre of the triangle. The term became very popular in the 1980s when the housing market was picking up momentum and estate agents used it to highlight this popular area for people to live in.

When it comes to living in Norwich a lot of people choose to search for a property to rent as opposed to a property for sale. For many people renting is a much more appealing option especially if they are only looking for somewhere to live temporarily.

As well as this monthly outgoings are much more predictable because landlords are responsible for maintaining the property which means you are less likely to have to deal with surprise expenses. So, if you decide that renting is the option for you where do you start?
