From helping the office start up in 2006, to becoming the franchisee... congratulations Keeley!
Belvoir are thrilled to declare that former business manager Keeley Taylor has become the new Franchise Owner of Belvoir’s branch in Basildon.
Keeley worked in the office for nine years, but her loyalty to the Belvoir brand and love for all things lettings meant that she elected to take over the business when the franchise became available.
“Having worked at the office in Basildon since 2006 (primarily when it was Let it Be and then as part of Belvoir when it was bought out by them in 2010), it really felt like the right next step for me when I was offered the chance to become the Franchisee.
“The company initially started as a cold start nine years ago and it was just the director and me at that time. We had no properties and throve to create and grow a client-base. Since then the business has grown tremendously and I am overjoyed to be taking on my new position.
“It’s going very well so far,” she continues. “It’s been really busy and we’ve had a excellent start to the New Year. There has been lots of activity, lets, and plenty of new properties with a great deal of positivity from landlords, tenants and the especially the staff.
“I’ve worked at the office for so long so I already have great relationships with the existing landlords and tenants and it’s fabulous to be able to build the business and guide it in a new direction.
“Looking forward I’m hoping to build on my relationships with current landlords, and get out there to push the business further by finding new ones too. I’m also going to re-fit the office this year and I’m very enthusiastic about growing Belvoir Basildon and its future.”
Keeley is just one of many new franchise owners for Belvoir, which recruits a wide range of people from a mixture of backgrounds and with varying degrees of experience in the lettings industry.
