Meyers franchise proves to be a perfect move for this former corporate worker

Meyers franchise proves to be a perfect move for this former corporate worker

Alex Hill hasn’t looked back since joining the expanding estate agency brand

Alex Hill had 20 years’ experience as a corporate estate agent before joining Meyers Estate Agents as a self-employed franchisee for Poole in Dorset in 2016. In his first year, he sold 32 properties and has since grown the business - selling 21 homes last month alone.

Employee to franchisee

Alex explains: “Working as a regional manager at a corporate estate agent had become a job where I just seemed to deal with complaints and recruiting for new staff when good but disillusioned people had left.

“I felt the corporate company’s focus on our customers had shifted over time until it left significant room for improvement.

“I’ve known Mark Meyer for many years and we’d discussed the possibility of starting one of the first pilot franchises for Meyers. In 2016, I made the move to Meyers and haven’t looked back.”

Tailored training

Mark provided Alex with training that was tailored to his needs around how to run a new business.

“The volume of support provided ensured I got off to a great start and Meyers’ customer-centric approach meant I was soon able to grow the business,” Alex says.

“Once we were financially stable, my wife Leanne also joined the franchise and my son is involved too. I think clients like the fact it’s a family business and we can offer that personal attention to each sale.

“Because Meyers is not on the high street, originally I set up working from home. This keeps initial overheads low and our success proves you no longer need a high street branch with all those associated costs.

“At the start, lots of local marketing around Poole was needed to generate interest, but now most of our work comes through recommendation.

“Our Meyers franchise has now grown into an office hub on a local business park as a base for the seven staff who are now all an essential part of our business.

“This still costs around half of a high street location, so we’re able to devote more resources to marketing properties.

“Better quality and more prominent online marketing mean 95 per cent of our enquiries come from our presence on the leading portals. As a result, we generate more interest and can prove we get closer to the asking price for the homes we sell than any other agent in the local area.

“I’m 100 per cent glad I made the move to Meyers. I’ve absolutely no regrets. “It’s been fabulous to set up and grow my own business through low-cost investment and be provided with all the support any new self-employed person needs.

“The attention to detail in how we work with our clients and sell properties is now phenomenal. It means we can offer the best service and get the best price for our properties and the structures in place as part of the franchise ensure we can do this.”

Start-up opportunities

Meyers currently has other low-cost start-up franchise opportunities available in various locations.

Experience of the property market is not always necessary as Meyers’ system is so easy to learn.

Full training and support powered by proven processes are offered to the right candidates looking for a family-friendly business opportunity and wanting to achieve a healthy work-life balance and the chance to earn a great living at the same time.
