Meyers Estate Agents’ Family Franchise Grows into New Space

Meyers Estate Agents in Poole, Dorset has officially opened its new office space on Newfield Business Park. The volume of transactions of the family franchise run by Alex Hill with the help of his wife Leanne, son Lewis and Lewis’ partner Jorden plus three other team members, has doubled in the past year and the new office now offers the facility for even further expansion.

Alex Hill, Meyers’ Estate Agent for Poole explains: “I spent 20 years working for a national corporate agency as a regional manager before joining Meyers six years ago as a Franchise owner.  I wanted to step away from the fixed idea of ‘traditional agency life’ and be able to offer a far more tailored and client focused service with the room and flexibility for my own family to grow too!  I started out with just a laptop and a phone, and we have managed to expand to a much larger operation to suit our clients’ needs!   It’s been an amazing journey.  Meyers’ aim is always to place our customers and the community at the heart of what we do, so recommendations quickly followed, enabling traction and business growth. 
“This year has marked a milestone where the Poole franchise now has seven team members, and we needed a central office hub for our admin staff and self-employed regional agents to be based if they choose.  The new central space also offers the room to expand further and means we can provide an even better service for our customers.” 
Mark Meyer, CEO, Meyers Estate Agents confirms: “That is the beauty of becoming a Meyers’ franchised estate agent – there is total flexibility over your business model.  Most of our agents work from home and can continue to do so if they choose.  However, when they expand to a point where a central meeting area is beneficial, an office hub such as Alex’ makes sense, enabling additional staff to be taken on as they grow.  For example: Alex has recently welcomed a new self-employed agent dedicated to the Ferndown area and will potentially look at introducing more new agents in the future.
“As Meyers is not on the high street, overheads are re-invested into better marketing and the presentation of properties which means our agents can achieve faster sales, often for a better price than a traditional agent.  Meyers is a new vision of estate agency where our team go the extra mile for our customers.  We are proud of what Alex, his family and team have achieved over the past few years under the umbrella of the Meyers brand and support.  As we continue to expand, we are looking for proactive, like-minded agents like Alex to join us as franchisees across the UK.  Low-cost franchise opportunities are available for the most suitable candidates with excellent communication and people skills and strong links to their local community.”
