Looking for a rental - frustrated with estate agents!

We have been living in our rental property for 6 and a half years, and due to expecting a baby are looking for a bigger property. We are slowly being driven mad by estate agents! My husband is self-employed but as he works for himself, he does his own books, tax returns etc. He has all the documentation to show for this (7 years worth) and to show his earnings. However, estate agents want an accountants reference. On top of this, there is issue with me being a supply teacher even though again I have pay slips to show earnings. We have never been in arrears with rent, been perfect tenants for our current landlords/estate agents, and have records to show we have plenty of savings so why are they making it so hard for us. On top of this, trying to arrange a viewing outside of work hours is near impossible. Properties have often been taken by the time our appointment comes around. We're feeling incredibly fed up and just want an estate agent who wants to help!!
