Firstly, thank you for all of your support for Maxine’s dancing efforts, we raised an incredible £3820 for the Agents Giving Charity and if you missed Max doing her winning dance, you can watch here. 

Yes your very own Dancing Letting Agent brought home the glitter ball after a fabulous night of dancing against 10 other brilliant competitors. Dancing a cha cha with her professional partner, Connor she achieved a clean sweep of 10s from the judges- which had everyone quite literally jumping up and down!

Agents Giving are the industry charity for letting agents, estate agents and suppliers to the industry. The organisation raised over £13million last year for good causes, so we are very proud to be able to contribute a little bit toward that with your help.
