As you may have noticed, we have been undergoing some editorial changeover on EAT and LAT. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to say a massive
thank you to Rosalind Renshaw, our fantastic editor since 2008. Thanks to Rosalind’s unique voice and unrivalled contacts, Estate Agent Today and Letting Agent Today
have forged reputations as two of the most influential publications in the property industry, something we are very proud of.

Since their inception, the Today Sites have been published by Nat Daniels, CEO of Angels Media, and this will continue as we move forward with the launch of the new EAT and LAT.

You may have been wondering who has taken over the editorial duties for the publications. From now on, we will have two editors for the sites. One of these will
be Graham Norwood. Graham is a journalist who has specialised in writing about residential property for over 10 years. He is critical of the ‘fluffy’ property journalism
that appears in some papers and prefers writing stories on the state of the market across the UK. A regular contributor to many national newspapers, Graham also has his own renowned property blog – Property News Hound. We are delighted to have Graham on board.

We would also like to announce that Mike Jones will be our other editor. A vastly experienced property and finance journalist, Mike has provided editorial for several of our other publications as well as contributing to many reputable trade and consumer titles over the years. As someone who runs a team of ex-national newspaper executives, Mike has a wealth of contacts and knowledge allowing him to provide cutting-edge estate and letting agency news.

Other regular contributors from the world of property will be announced over the coming weeks, coinciding with the launch of the new sites.

    Yes, poor grammar just like that sentents.

    Why the question mark and capital on you? His ignorance was deliberate do you have an excuse?

    It is easy to be offended by a post like that but I am fairly certain Ros is made of stronger stuff than to have even flinched, she may even had a chuckle that she had irked that poster so much. Knowing some of the stuff that she had to deal with, the sub judice and injunction insulated corruption of criminals, the bankrupts and business venture failures it is easy to see why a tiny minority would not fully appreciate how honest and fair she was

    Without doubt she would of had a laugh at the spellins and grammatical content of the post and title. after all they carn't get there capital Letters in the write place and wot a riddens is I aven't a Clue.

    @Ampersat. Thank you for saying so eloquently what many of us must have thought of that disgracefully vulgar early comment.

    I know for a fact that Ros has not retired and I'm quite confident that proper journalism and reporting on our industry is not ended, it is only in abeyance. Watch this space.

    FAO Nasty malcontent. I think you need to learn who to be angry with. I have my own theory on who you are and I am fairly sure a simple IP check will confirm your location enough to take your vile and unjustified post up with your employer. If you are a service supplier or would be service supplier I am sure Agents could benefit from knowing who you are. Whether you work for one of the many ailing portals that Ros has dealt with in the course of her job; publishing the PR guff, then reporting when the hype turns out turns out to be deluded mis-managed ambition by folk who challenge Baldrick for his propensity for cunning plans. Whether you are one of the crooks or spivs that are lured into our industry by greed or an amatuer self publisist who couldn't get their crappy story past Ros's informed eye; whatever Ros ran on you , did or didn't do to you or your employer was without doubt fully justified and honest.

    FAO Nat Daniels. In all the years I have been reading EAT and LAT NEVER has Ros allowed any form of personal attack or insult to remain on the site for more than an hour or so. If you think that your site is enhanced by leaving such a nasty attack on Ros Renshaw on your site then you are no better than the poster themselves. It is obvious you have struggled to thank Ros for her efforts and I am fairly sure your sites' content and following will suffer as a result of her departure but if you do not pay more attention to moderating your sites the demise will come so much faster.

    It is early days but in a single story where it is suggested that all the House Price indices are aggregated it is obvious what the future looks like. I hope for your sake that your advertisers appreciate the changes more than I do.

    A shame Ros has gone. Always admired her work.

    Someone with their head screwed on will snap her up very soon.

    Good luck Ros. BIG respect.

    I don't know why you are thanking me , my question was aimed at assessing whether Mr Norwood is one of those Property journalists who regurgitates stuff he has read elsewhere or whether he has a knowledge and understanding of the industry.
    Introduced as a journalist who is critical of Fluffy property journalism I want to see if that comment is spin and rhetoric or whether it has any substance. An article on the subject, without answering the question for himself, allows Mr Norwood to hide behind impartiality and question, it gives no indication of Mr Norwood’s opinion or understanding.

    "For all press enquiries, releases and story ideas please email: press@estateagenttoday.co.uk or press@lettingagenttoday.co.uk"

    Ros found her own stories like a ferret - never afraid to take on the establishment without fear of favour and immune to pressure from those (corporates) who disliked what was said on occasions.

    I have never heard a bad word about her other than from someone unhappy with being exposed.

    Ros is a huge loss to this site and her departure should have been announced properly with thanks for all she had done, not as an afterthought.

    Most agents serious players in this business have nothing but respect for Ros and her knowledge and professionalism. We may not always have agreed, but credit where its due.

    Best wishes RR!!

    So, at last, a rather mealy mouthed recognition of Rosalinds contributions over the years. Pity it looks as if it has been forced out of the editors by the comments posted on this site during the last few days. Disgraceful.

    Best wishes and thanks to Ros and best wishes to Graham and Mike coming on board.

    I don't think Ros has "retired" so expect to see her involved in industry news and journalism for a while yet.

    Funny, innit, how those posters below couldn't challenge Ros when she was here to at least defend herself?

    They'd probably cr@p bricks if she had. Instead, they should have grown b@lls beforehand and given the opinions they now feel fit to post.

    For the record, Ros and I didn't always see things with the same rose-coloured specs - and we both knew it when it happened - but I had (and still have...) utmost respect for the lady and her work here on EAT and beyond.

    'Changeisgood' - Is it? Time will tell.

    I, for one, 'like' what we have already.

    She always knew what was going on in the industry. A great asset to the industry.

    What a nasty comment - unmerited and unwarranted

    Find me a journo who isn't 'nosy' aka inquisitive, and I will show you an unemployed journo.

    Good luck Ros - we will miss you a great deal

    Ros was and remains a great asset to the industry and will be missed.

    As Eric said - her updates were a great way of communicating to staff and we frequently used her articles as a training tool.

    I tend to ignore idiots who can't even spell 'riddance' and suspect that without a keyboard, such comments would be in crayon.

    Good luck Ros

    :)

    I would like to add my personal thanks to Ros for the immense work she has done for the industry and the fantastic insight she has provided.

    It's not just about the important issues she has addressed and the tenacious pursuit of difficult issues.

    Lets not forget the invaluable aid EAT & LAT has proven to be in terms of training and communicating important changes to legislation to staff (and MD's).

    I have enjoyed and admired Ros's professionalism. knowledge and humour and am extremely grateful for her support and assistance.

    Ros has become a good friend over many years and I am very much looking forward to seeing what new venture she pursues before her husband has her evicted from the increasingly well organised family home.

    I wish the new team good luck - you have a tough act to follow.

    Please can we have your thoughts about the online property valuation tools that are available to the general public via the property portals. Are they a good thing or a bad thing? Are they accurate or misleading?

    Congratulations to both Graham and Mike. As I am sure you are aware a number of conveyancers read and have contibuted to EAT. Whilst estate agents and conveyancers don't always see eye to eye long may that continue.
