In November 2015, we started documenting the real-life journey of a Belvoir franchisee, producing regular up-dates.
Our "guinea pig" was Luke Marchbanks, of Belvoir Bournemouth, who began his business journey with us at the tender age of 23.
Our regular video up-dates started with Luke attending his 3 week induction training course at our Grantham HQ, and then caught up with him again when he was looking for commercial premises in Bournemouth town centre.
Up until that point, Luke's journey was pretty standard.
Then in July 2016, things took a different turn for this young entrepreneur, when, with the help of Belvoir, he acquired an existing lettings business away from the town centre. He found himself with 5 members of staff, around 100 let properties, and a sales pipeline of vendors wishing to sell their property.
The journey up to this point can be found here:
Journey of a Belvoir franchisee - documented
The next stage was for Luke to change his office to full Belvoir branding, which he did in the space of 24 hours, with a little bit of help from his father, who wielded a paint brush!
In this next video instalment, Luke unveils his Belvoir-branded premises and talks about the transition and what the Belvoir brand brings to his successful start:
Luke's next challenge is to continue building the business, increasing his let property portfolio, and selling 60-odd properties in his sales pipeline at the time of writing!
A flying start for this determined and commited young man who is proving an inspiration to many people.
