The Fresh sales department welcomes Nick Clarke to head up the team and he he has already made an immediate impact. A report via the property portal Zoopla for the period 22/11/18 to 28/11/18 shows us at No.1 for new instructions across 70 agents in the local area. Indeed, instructions for the whole of November have been at a high for the Fresh sales team. This is despite it being a traditionally slower time of the year for property instructions.
“We had some great foundations laid by our sales department over previous years and with Nick’s recent appointment we hoped that he could drive us to new levels of performance. In just a short space of time with us he has done just that, and we now look forward to 2019 with much excitement”. Matthew Wiggall, Managing Director.
Questions and Answers with Nick Clarke
Question: What is your background?
Answer: My background has been in estate agency for the past 21 years. I started my career back in Wolverhampton with Countrywide in 1997 where I quickly progressed from a sales negotiator to a valuer and then to branch manager. Since then, I have worked for a mixture of local Independent companies as well as corporate estate agency groups. This has given me a great insight into what makes great estate agency by taking the best of both worlds and improving my skills and knowledge within the industry. I moved to Wales in 2016 where I married a local girl! I was working for a local major estate agent managing both City and Swansea Marina branches, at different times, with very successful results until a fantastic opportunity came along to join Fresh.
Question: Why did you decide to leave corporate estate agency and join the Fresh project?
Answer: Fresh is a brand that has always stood out from the rest, it has great customer reviews and a second to none advertising strategy. Fresh offers the customer service experience that sadly seems to be disappearing in the industry. I see an opportunity in Fresh to become the agent of choice for Swansea and by bringing my experience and local knowledge to a well-established and professional team I see this as being more than achievable.
Question: What sets Fresh apart from the rest and why should anyone wishing to sell now and in 2019 instruct Fresh?
Answer: When I joined Fresh Estate Agents I was pleasantly surprised by the passion for success and great customer service from the directors Matthew and Dean. They have invested in the right technology to put us a step ahead of the competition when putting your property up for sale and finding the right buyer. We believe that the experience that you have with Fresh, you will pass onto your friends and colleagues and help our business grow. By using competitively priced local solicitors and mortgage advisers, along with a fee structure which you will find attractive, the whole package for moving will not be a strain on the pocket! Fresh are a forward thinking estate agent with a very pro-active ethos. Your home will not sell itself, our team will actively be seeking out qualified registered buyers to help you get the best possible price within a reasonable time.
Thank you for everything. The service, professionalism and effort has been above what would be expected. Thank you. Richard & Laura
