Video – This agent tells YOU how he increased his managed stock by 200 properties in 2 years

Yes, this video tells you exactly how this letting agent grew his business, grew his managad stock by 200 properties in the last two years – without having to drop fees.

I warn you though .. its 40 mins long and very indepth … but if you serious about growing your lettings agency, let Daren (the letting agent) tell his story from the early days when he opened around 2000, his early growth, the trouble caused when the corporates jumped on the lettings band wagon in 2009/10, how he dealt with the number of competitor agents going from six to sixty three, how he dealt with cheap fees and touting and how after not growing his managed stock in 2011/12/13, after the Spring of 2014, he grew his managed stock by 200 properties in under two years
This video isnt for the feint hearted …. it goes into a lot of details and ‘fly by night agents’ who want a quick hit or quick win, will be disappointed – so dont waste you time watching it – you carry on touting and dook knocking …

… but if you are in lettings for the long term – it is worth 40 minutes of your life.
If you are a neg or poperty manager – pass it on to the boss – they dont probably go on this website – so havent seen this video…

Are Countrywide becoming the Tesco's of UK Estate Agency?

10 years ago – Tesco’s could do no wrong, the darling of the stock market, huge profits, they were invincible ..  but now, still huge – Tesco’s are not the force they once were. Tesco’s Senior executives were pushed out of the business which also suffered a culture change which was "not for the better". .. and that made me think, the of the possible similarities between what happened at Tesco’s and what appears to be happening now at Countrywide
For years, anyone who had dealings with Countrywide would come away with respect for the apparent clinical efficiency of its business model. One company, many brands. The senior management team had so much depth of experience .. both a mile wide and a mile deep. Countrywide played hard but

Cheap Fees in Estate Agency

My good lady wife loves shopping online. In fact, Amazon, they rang her last week to check she was Ok as she hadn’t ordered anything for three days (only kidding .. they rang after two days)
She ordered some Gin glasses (not from Amazon) from the internet – you know the ones that look like a goldfish bowl on a stick. The glass seller put the box of six glasses (the box being quite flimsy in the first place) in another brown cardboard box. This brown cardboard box was a couple of inches bigger around the sides of glass box, but the same height as the
