Winkworth Canterbury - under new management

At the beginning of February this year, the Winkworth office in Canterbury sold to the existing Lettings Director, Donna Pearson.

Donna started her career in the property industry over 25 years ago, so has plenty of Estate Agency experience. Over the years she has been a Branch Manager, an Area Director, and even spent some time at the local University dealing with student accommodation. Donna's specialism lies in lettings and she was best placed to take over the Winkworth office as has worked in Canterbury for most of her profession.

Donna says, "I still get a real buzz from property, and enjoy how each day brings completely different challenges. I was given the opportunity to join as a Partner in the original franchise four years ago, so making the decision to take the next step of buying the whole franchise seemed a great natural progression."

"I am looking forward to the challenge of continuing to expand the office and get our name out to a wider audience within the South East. I have the great support of our current team, Penny Mackenzie and Penny Sinclair who have both been with the office for ten years each, and recent recruit Stuart Clark as our Property Manager."

"Buying shares in an existing operating franchise is a good way 'in' to becoming a Winkworth franchisee for some talented individuals", says James Campbell, Winkworth's New Franchising Executive. "It's less expensive and eventually, if you are driven like Donna, and the opportunity presents itself, you may be able to purchase the business outright."

Whether considering opening a new office, or purchasing shares in an existing one, Winkworth are constantly on the lookout for potential franchisees.

"I think when considering a Franchise, the main ingredients are plenty of energy and enthusiasm and offering great customer service", says Donna.

If, like Donna, you think you have what it takes and are interested in the Winkworth opportunity contact the New Franchising team today.
