Hybrid franchise agency opens ‘Not On The High Street’ office

A family franchise agency that prides itself on saving costs associated with traditional High Street premises has nonetheless opened a new office -  although it's in a business park.

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 and his family - plus three other team members - has doubled in the past year and the new office has scope for further expansion.

Hill says: “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 clients’ needs.”

Mark Meyer, chief executive of the company, says: “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.”

    “A new vision of estate agency”. Yawn. These people obviously haven’t noticed that they offer nothing different apart from hard, lonely work with no employment benefits.

    Hi Eve - Thank you for your comment. Honestly not all agents have to be the same as all the other agents. I know its a bandwagon - I also have heard it all before and I don't blame you for this comment at all...

    The last paragraph is some of the worst tripe I've read in many years, can't wait for them to try to substantiate such ludicrous claims.

    Hello property pundit - thank you for taking the time to comment - unusually for and estate agent we have created and invest into a pre determined sales system that is built before marketing begins plus a drive to bring in 'non customers' of property purchasing into the buying process. Its quite easy really but effective and probably why the brand has been a top % BEAG agent for every year the award has been running. I can show you the system if you want to know how it works- I have done training on it throughout the UK.
