Not hunted for a while, but when I last looked,
1. Almost everything in Loot was in bold (ie. an agent anyway).
No way to avoid agents. Vast majority of agents suck.
2. There is/was some scam involving agencies which will charge you
a fee *before* they show you any property. This is normally illegal;
they were claiming to be inhabiting some grey area.
Paying them money would seem inadvisable.
