The opening of the first Belvoir Lettings Agency in Lisburn, Northern Ireland is an exciting new venture for 25 years old Michael McGrath.
The new Belvoir office, located on Bow Street will provide the tenants and landlords in the Lisburn area with Belvoir’s award winning service dealing with a variety of good quality residential properties ranging from luxury apartments to family homes.
With a recently completed degree in Business Studies to his credit and an eager attitude to succeed Michael joins a growing network of more than 140 Belvoir franchises offering both tenants and landlords the very highest standards of professional conduct in the residential lettings market.
Michael’s new career follows on from working as an accounts administrator in his family’s engineering company and he also has experience in telesales with British Telecom. With his family having both commercial and residential investments Michael also has the benefit of some first hand knowledge of the growing rentals industry.
As one of Belvoir’s youngest franchisees Michael says it was Belvoir’s customer focused ethos coupled with the company’s comprehensive support and training package which first attracted him to the idea of launching his own franchise business.
“I know I can offer great customer service and am capable of running an organised and efficient business but as a newcomer to the industry it is reassuring to know that I can tap into the expertise and knowledge of experienced lettings operators. Belvoir’s credibility as a nationwide franchise made it a natural choice for me,” says Michael.
He added: “For various reasons there has been a shift away from property ownership in the U.K. and the lettings industry is on the increase with people now beginning to accept renting as the norm. I’m looking forward to establishing a first class service for landlords and tenants alike – one that shows what Belvoir can do for them and how we can help clients achieve what they want to achieve. It’s all about giving support to both tenants looking to secure the right property and landlords looking to secure the right tenant.”
The franchise is welcomed by Dorian Gonsalves, Chief Executive Officer of Belvoir, who says: “We are keen to extend Belvoir representation in Northern Ireland so we are very excited about the launch of the new Lisburn office. It is a delight to see this young man getting his new business started as part of our Northern Ireland development plan.”
“Tenants and landlords in Lisburn will receive a high level of specially tailored attention from Belvoir’s nationally accredited award-winning service. All our agents receive intensive training so they can expect superlative levels of customer service.
“With Michael’s strong business background and his youthful enthusiasm, I know that he will make it a fantastic success. His positive approach and determination to develop a successful business will ensure that Belvoir will soon be the talk of the town!”
