Hear what some of our estate agent franchisees have to say:
“As an independent agent you have to be good to survive. When we rebranded under Hunters umbrella the training and support was fantastic, change is never easy but Carole and Carrie were there from day one. The central franchise team deliver what they say, from strong marketing to seminars on managing a successful target driven business. Over the past year our business has changed dramatically, our team has been energised and the desire to become the market leader in our area has never been stronger.
Without Hunters this simply would not have been possible, our rebranded branch (Stoke on Trent) is going from strength to strength, on the back of its success we opened our second branch (Endon) within a year of joining the network. As a cold start the Hunters brand has proved itself again, we immediately made an impact in a highly competitive market. Thank you Andy Bushell, it seems like a long time ago now when we first met but without doubt joining Hunters has been the best decision we have made.”
Daniel Smart, Hunters Branch Partner
“Since our conversion our sales pipeline has increased by just over 500%! and still rising. We now have 3 valuers in the office following successful completion of the Listing courses and the support network we receive is second to none. My only regret is that it took me such a long time to make up my mind to convert, I wish I had done it years ago.”
Colin Carr, Dartford
“I started out life showing people round houses on a weekend and progressed through the company to now owning my own franchise within the Hunters group. I can honestly say I’ve never worked with such a nice group of friendly supportive people. I always feel part of something and would honestly not work for another agent in they are miles apart from Hunters in all ways. This is a great company and so forward thinking”
Paul Atkinson, Hunters Partner
Another one of our successful business conversions took place in Worsley which is a suburb of Manchester. The owner of the company, Mike McManus, already had a significant lettings business and was keen to take his branch to the next level. Mike had invested considerably into his local brand and was understandably nervous about re-branding but took the decision based on his desire to expand particularly into the local sales market. After trading as Hunters for 3 months, Mike reported increased productivity of over 400%. Mike whole heartedly believes this is due to the marketing, technology and support he has received and has stated quite clearly that this has been “absolutely the right decision”.
Mike McManus, Hunters Branch Partner
“We have been a franchised office for nearly 5 years and only with the support and commitment of the Hunters Group have we been able to continue to thrive and make profit through a difficult few years. Without the Hunters brand support I am convinced we would have been another casualty of the recession.”
Rebekah Try, Hunters Branch Partner
“You will get huge amounts of support and some seriously interesting ideas to help your business. Hunters want all of us to be the best that we can be – as individuals and as part of a team.”
Julia Preen, Hunters Branch Partner
