Simon is an experienced estate agent who was previously a partner in a town centre estate agency, however over time particularly in 2012 he noticed an enormous drop in the number of clients actually visiting the store. At the same time there was a huge increase in the number of valuations and viewings initiated from Rightmove and Zoopla. Using these statistics and the fact that he had been approached by a family friend Nathan, a property developer who was desperate to save money on his selling and letting fees. They decided to join forces and open an alternative modern thinking agency. Reducing the overheads enables the clients to benefit from massively reduced selling fees, whilst still offering a traditional full estate agency service.
Published statistics say that there is much higher chance of making your new business a success if its a franchise rather than an independent set up. It depends on you as a person, your personality, your financial situation and your previous experience.
Monopoly Buy Sell Rent set up as a local estate agency in a very small rurally located office in June 2013 specifically as a pilot to test the model we anticipated and hoped future monopoly Buy Sell Rent franchises would become. We wanted to perfect the systems as best we could, test the publics response to the ethos, register the mMnopoly buy sell rent trademark, design the eye catching sign and prepare all the policies and procedures etc, etc. Within the area we are located we quickly rose from the newest agency to the second largest quickly overtaking very established high street estate agencies. All the above plus a lot more including training and support is now available to you as part of the Monopoly Buy Sell Rent franchise, so perhaps the question should be why wouldn’t you want a Monopoly Buy Sell Rent franchise?

I have used your estate agent twice now, once selling my own home and again our family home. Without any hesitation I would/have recommended Monopoly Buy Sell Rent to friends and family.
Always felt you were there to help and nothing was ever too much trouble, and people I dealt with very friendly and professional.
Thanks again for all the help given.

I would just like to say that from the first moment Simon came to value our property, he gave us an honest opinion on what he thought we would sell our property for and gave us great advise on how to market the property. With this be explained the great packages monopoly have for selling our property.
We had a few different estate agents come round, but we felt monopoly were the right choice and we were proved right. They answered all the question we had and kept us up to date with potential buyers feed back.
Our property sold in approx 8-10 weeks and we would like to thank Simon and he's team

I was really impressed with the service provided in the sale of my house last May.
Very professional service, any queries were responded to promptly.
I sold in a few months and if I wanted to move house in the future would definitely use Monopoly Buy Sell Rent again.
