A former agent made redundant by LSL Property Services is the 125th franchisee for EweMove.
Damien Guest, who has worked in agency for more than seven years, launched the EweMove business in Folkestone and Cheriton earlier this month.
However, EweMove has revealed that while Guest is the 125th franchisee, he is in fact only the 44th to have extensive industry experience.
“Like many agents I wanted to strike out on my own. I’ve worked in independent and corporate agencies and was coming to a point when I wanted to test myself and see if I could build my own business. The costs of setting up totally from scratch were too much, as was the risk” he says.
“I made the decision to sign up pretty quickly because all my questions had been answered. The interest free loan they were offering former LSL employees made their whole proposition too good to turn down.”
