Bill Miller of EweMove Gainsborough, shares his journey to owning and operating his estate agency franchise.
"When my wife Geraldine took early retirement we had a lump sum to invest. We wanted a vehicle which would provide us with a suitable return with which to enjoy a comfortable later life. We spent some time searching for the right business to invest in.I ran my own property management company for years. As a one-man band company I worked very long hours, juggling the requirements of sales, accounting, marketing, planning, client relationship management and problem solving. I wasn’t even sure I wanted to remain in the property business as I was jaded and had little work/life balance."
The EweMove franchise makes everything so easy
"Taking the EweMove franchise was the best move I ever made. EweMove takes all the hassle and stress away because their comprehensive support package is so good. It means all I have to do are the ‘nice’ bits like meeting people, building relationships and making sales!"
The greater the effort, the greater the return and with minimal overheads, the greater the profit margin
"The support processes are so easy to pick up and implement. Everything is automated and I find I spend much less time on administration tasks and much more time enjoying the garden! Everyone at the Franchise Support Centre is so supportive, helpful and cheerful, as are the other franchisees. Advice or a sounding-board is always available. It’s the most efficient, motivational and rewarding way to run a business. The high return on investment means we achieved our target of £75,000 within the first year."
