Free seminars are to be held next month to help letting agents restructure their business to optimise opportunities in the current challenging market.
Simon Duce, managing director of ARPM Outsourced Lettings Solutions, has teamed up with one of the industry’s best respected business consultants - Michael Day of Integra Property Services - as well as Peter Chapman of TM Training and Development.
The trio will be holding morning seminars at Watford, Guildford and Brentwood to help equip agents with the tools to overcome the tenant fee ban, win more landlords and grow their lettings business.
“Estate and letting agents are heading into an extremely challenging time. For some years now, online and hybrid providers have been posing a threat to the traditional high street model, and now the tenant fee ban could cause many agents to see a dramatic drop in their income” explains Simon Duce.
“We’ve all heard about the big chains merging and the smaller ones selling up, but only by carrying out a thorough analysis of their current lettings business and exploring innovative opportunities for growth can agents truly understand the options available to them.
“Right now, it’s the calm before the storm and far too many agents are burying their heads in the sand. We want to help them take back control of their business and help them decide whether they are going to sink or swim when the tide comes in.”
The trio will be sharing methods for analysing lettings business and evaluating opportunities for growth and increasing income; streamlining internal processes and utilising the best available PropTech on the market to cut costs and save time.
Mike Day adds: “We are in a period of enormous change – legislation, competition, new business models and technology are all driving change and lettings agents simply must review, plan and reorganise their businesses if they are to survive and thrive in the future.”
The first workshop is being held at Holiday Inn Express in Watford on Wednesday October 10 from 9.30 to 12.00, followed by one in Guildford on Wednesday October 17 and one in Brentwood on Tuesday October 23.
