Meyers Estate Agents is expanding into Somerset after experienced estate agent Sara Benham agreed to manage the firm’s new territory.
The agency, set-up by Mark Meyer and his wife Claire 10-years ago, now has nine franchisees across the region and is recruiting nationally.
Mark Meyer, principal, Meyers Estate Agents, said: “Taking advantage of the latest technology combined with the low overheads achieved by moving away from the high street, offers a robust and resilient business model.
“We help property owners sell fast through local knowledge, great marketing and digital channels. Over the past decade, we have carefully developed and piloted the agile Meyers concept, moving it beyond all expectations.
“I’m pleased to confirm that Sara Benham will now manage Meyers’ mid-Somerset territory. Sara’s previous experience as an estate agent and the strength of her local connections will ensure she is well placed to take advantage of some of the most buoyant property market conditions we have ever seen to offer houses for sale in Street, Glastonbury, Wells and Shepton Mallet.”
Benham previously ran my her own online agency for four years and worked as an agent for Purplebricks. Before that, she was a manager for a Countrywide high street branch.
Benham commented: “I’ve now chosen to make the move to Meyers because the franchise includes all the best elements from the traditional model without the unnecessary trappings of a high-street location.
“It’s also a family business with strong ethics and values centred around a personal approach, which looks after both sellers and buyers equally and this really appealed to me.
“The tools and training provided, including the twenty-one step selling system is second to none and the same methodical approach is applied to building business in each territory. After a tough year, I’m now really excited to be joining Meyers working back in an area of Somerset I know and love.”
