Revealed – the agent posting Instagram pictures of clients’ houses
The high-end estate agent who has quit his post after being found to have posted pictures of clients’ houses on Instagram has been named.
Last week The Times made reference to speculation that an agency was being sued by clients upset at seeing images of their properties on an individual agent’s Instagram; but now the Financial Times has identified him as Knight Frank’s Daniel Daggers.
The FT, and other national papers quoting the FT, say that Daggers was nicknamed Mr Super Prime on his social media hashtag, and had claimed to have successfully sold £3.85 billion of properties, including a £95m mansion at London’s St James’s Park, bought by a US billionaire, and an unmodernised off-market house sale in central London worth £45m.
As of last evening, Daggers’ Instagram profile referred to himself as “The Luxury Real Estate Advisor”; amongst the images posted is an eight-page presentation of his 2018 and 2019 performance which includes £241.67m in sales deals.
Estate Agent Today contacted Knight Frank after emails to Dagger’s Knight Frank address received an out of office message saying: “This mailbox is no longer monitored” and giving enquirers the email address of a Knight Frank negotiator.
A statement to EAT from Knight Frank itself says: “Knight Frank can confirm Daniel Daggers resigned in November 2019 and will leave the firm in February 2020.”
