From independent to Franchisee

Tom Lepsky and Kim Karpeta joined Winkworth in September 2012, having previously traded as an Independent since 2006.

  • Two offices based in Weybridge and Cobham, run as a partnership of two directors
  • Most significant improvement is the quality of enquiries that we get from people who want to work for the brand in areas that we operate in
  • Turnover from January 2013 to 2014 increased by almost 30%
  • Accessed very influential buyers from abroad through the Winkworth network who have purchased multiple significant projects
Our turnover from January 2013 to 2014 increased by almost 30% which means that our decision to join Winkworth has been our best to date.
As an independent, you work hard to establish your reputation and compete for market share, and very often you may be operating in the area which may not be one’s patch. A key part of our business before we joined Winkworth was promoting our brand and word-of-mouth recommendation. With the Winkworth name behind us, we find that this part of the job in particular has become much easier and we now have access to some great promotional opportunities as well as being part of a national network of offices which has enabled us to grow our market share from day one.
