Sandwell and Dudley, West Midlands (PRWEB UK) 8 February 2012
Sandwell and Dudley UK Lettings Branch start-up owner, Dawn Bennett, opened her new Concentric Lettings Franchise Business http://www.ConcentricLettings.co.uk in September 2011 and has managed to take on a record 70 properties in her first 4 months of trade, including a staggering 18 properties in December and 13 in January 2012.
Concentric Lettings Managing Director http://www.UKFranchiseOpportunities.info Sally Lawson, said: “When setting up a letting agency the biggest challenge is finding landlords and getting properties under management and Dawn has more than excelled at this. Taking on 18 properties in the peak summer months is quite an achievement, never mind at this early stage, and in December too!”
Having worked in the territory for the last 10 years, Dawn has built up a wealth of contacts, although she says: “Most of my new instructions have come from the internet, networking and spreading the word that my new lettings branch is open and ready for business. It’s all about taking massive action to get the new business in, not just sitting there waiting for the phone to ring”.
When asked how Dawn has achieved such staggering achievements in such a short space of time, she puts the success down to pure hard work and a focus on customer service. Dawn said: "I go the extra mile with every landlord, and I’ve had to solve many of their problems and issues along the way. One landlord had a property empty for 3 months and I spent a lot of time advising him on improvements to get the property let, resulting in a let within a week of the work being done. I’ve been involved in an eviction for a landlord who was out of the country and also managed portfolios dotted around the country, to allow landlords to have all their properties managed through one central point.”
Dawn previously worked for a Wolverhampton Letting Agency as a Lettings Manager and a Sales Negotiator for a Wolverhampton Estate Agent, but having been part of the training team for Concentric Lettings http://www.ConcentricLettings.co.uk for the past year, she has now decided to take the plunge and have-a-go herself.
Sally Lawson, said: "We are certainly glad Dawn took up the challenge to launch her own Sandwell and Dudley Lettings Agency. She has beaten all records so far for the first 4 months of trade and we are really pleased with her progress. She has had to adapt to some new ways of doing things and challenge a few of her fears, for example Dawn hated networking and speaking, yet we have managed to coach her to challenge both of these fears and she has certainly reaped the rewards for doing so".
Sally continued: “Dawn is tenacious and passionate and we are looking forward to working with her over the next few years, helping her to grow her business to new heights of success http://www.ukfranchiseopportunities.info/news
