Winkworth New Franchising H1 update

The new franchising team have been very busy in the first half of 2018. Dominic Agace, CEO, comments “We expect 2018 to improve further on what we achieved in 2017, with the continued growth of the Winkworth network. We have some really good people at the helm of each office who are helping to drive the network and brand forward to continued success.”

Read on below to find out what has been going on in the department so far this year.

The new franchising team have opened three new Cold Start offices in the first six months of 2018:

Banstead – Surrey; owned by new franchisees Andrew Booker and Richard Ward.

Poringland – Norfolk; owned by new franchisee Jamie Moore.

Brentford – West London; owned by existing franchisee Sohail Janjuha.

“We have had a strong uplift on applicants year on year and I’m enthusiastic to progress with some high calibre potential franchisees in the latter half of 2018,” says James Campbell, New Franchising Manager.

The department has also sold six long-standing offices to a mixture of new franchisees, existing Winkworth franchisees and two current Winkworth managers:

Beaconsfield – Buckinghamshire; sold to new franchisee Daniel Lowerson.

Chiswick – West London; sold to existing franchisee Sohail Janjuha.

Canterbury – Kent; sold to existing lettings director and part owner Donna Pearson.

Tooting – South London; sold to new franchisee Sarah Nalla.

Bow – East London; sold to new franchisee Dominic Cocklin.

Brighton – Sussex; sold to existing manager and minor shareholder Toby Powell.

“Portfolio management in the form of resales is an important growth arm for Winkworth,” explains Gina Piper, Operations Manager. “Bringing in new franchisees who are hungry and enthusiastic can really benefit already established and successful offices further.”

Talking generally Dominic comments, “We are increasingly focused on evolving the Winkworth network by having the most skilled people in the industry and providing the best service to our clients.”
