A young estate agent - who by the age of 20 has already had a year working with Purplebricks - has ditched the company and has instead joined online rival easyProperty.
Chaim Aaron is easyProperty’s first Manchester franchisee, covering Salford and a number of other suburbs.
“If I sell two properties in a month, I will make double what a corporate estate agent would make” Aaron has told the Manchester Evening News.
“When I knock on people’s doors and they say ‘you’re only 20?’ I say ‘I’m young and ambitious’. I’ve grown up on these streets, I know the area, people, this is where I live and where I want to be spreading my name, spreading the light. What better place to do it than your hometown?” he insists.
He tells the newspaper that his ambition is to work hard this decade so he can cut back his hours working in his 30s.
“I don’t come from a lot of money. From 15, I went to work in a grocery store and was stacking shelves for 16 hours a day. It taught me hard work. I dream of getting to the top as fast as possible; living a luxury lifestyle, having a nice house with a jacuzzi. But I also want to be in a position where I can give back. That feeling of giving; you can't compare it with anything else” he continues.
“People said prior to Brexit there would be a massive crash...never happened. During the first lockdown, everyone said the market is going to crash...instead it’s just been booming, especially with the stamp duty holiday” he goes on.
In addition to Manchester, easyProperty has set up in Hampshire, Liverpool, North West London, West Yorkshire, Portsmouth and Plymouth as well as North and South Wales.
“We are in advanced discussion with multiple people about them joining our team and painting Greater Manchester orange” claims the agency’s chief executive. David Brierley.
