James Hillier and Rob Bearsby, who have operated Apex Residential at Bexleyheath in London for the past 14 years, have switched the business to EweMove.
However, it will remain a physical branch unlike most local EweMove operations.
“We’re proud to have built up a hugely successful business which has a reputation for delivering outstanding service, but after 14 years we simply weren’t sure how to move further forward – and so the transition to EweMove was a natural next step” says Hillier.
“We have embraced wholeheartedly everything that EweMove offers, from the software and marketing systems right the way through to the green AstroTurf which has made for a striking shop front” he adds.
The pair previously operated an agency under the Bairstow Eves brand before launching independent agent Apex Residential in 2003.
The EweMove Bexleyheath office now handles the full lettings and sales portfolio built up by Apex.
“As the original hybrid agency, our franchisees have the unique opportunity to run hugely successful businesses whether they operate from home, a serviced office, or a high street branch – the choice really is theirs” says Nick Neill, managing director of EweMove.
