Agency Express Shropshire
Phil Harrington has run a highly successful Agency Express franchise since 2007. Previously a HGV driver of 18 years Phil found the transition to becoming an Agency Express franchisee a natural and progressive step. The drive behind his career change was one of wanting to not only run his own business, but to also to maximise his potential to earn a good living.
With a driving history where manual labour was part of the daily requirement Phil found that the Agency Express van based franchise was the perfect business for him to invest in. So after much investigation in to the franchise Phil contacted Agency Express via the British Franchise Association website.
I felt confident throughout the early days of starting my franchise. The Agency Express training and support programme gave me the kick start I needed in getting out there and getting active.
Throughout the ten years that Phil has been in business he has not only provided excellent services that his customers can rely on, he has continually focused on building strong relations.
He has spent time with his estate agency customers, secured loyal friendships and gained countless new clients.
I have great relationships with my customers, I spend time with them socially take them out to show thanks for their business. I think is important to take the time out to get to know who you are working for because that’s what sets you aside from the next man.
During this period Phil has seen his business flourish. With his dedication to his franchise coupled the Agency Express comprehensive franchise package and proven business formula Phil is now one of Agency Express busiest franchisees.
The biggest highlight has been making the business a success! My advice to new franchisees would be work at it, always be polite and just get stuck in.
Today Phil Harrington is one of Agency Express’s most successful franchisees and in 2017 he is set to renew is franchise agreement for a further 10 years.
