I have very nearly done it all over the last 20 plus years. A Sales Negotiator, Valuer, Branch Manager, Area Sales Director and a Senior Divisional Director working for a larger corporate company looking after 25 Estate Agency branches and over 250 employees.
So why take the jump and risk it all by starting my own business? Well in fairness I had loved my career in Estate Agency before taking the plunge having only worked for a handful of companies on the way and I must say done quite well out of it too. However, all that said I can truly say that I had lost my sparkle for a while.
So there really wasn’t that much to think about, I certainly didn’t want to do anything else. Estate Agency is in my blood, so it was time to get back to the shop floor, doing valuations, meeting people and giving people advice, whether this be about selling, buying or letting.
Happily married to Lisa (also an estate agent) with 5 children, I needed to balance the home life scales too. Working 70 hours a week regularly, not seeing the kids on weeknights had already gone on too long so something had to give. Now with my work-life balance in check doing the job, I love with people who share the same vision, I think is a pretty exciting and smart move.
