The team at Belvoir Melton Mowbray open a second office in the nearby market town of Bingham
Belvoir are pleased to announce the launch of the latest addition to the Belvoir network, Belvoir Bingham.
Opening its doors for the first time this month, Belvoir Bingham is a second office for successful franchise owner Charlotte Baker and will complement her existing Belvoir business in Melton Mowbray which has been operating since 1998.
“The driving factor for opening a new office was to help grow the business while building on the success we’ve already had at our existing office in Melton Mowbray,” says Charlotte.
“Because we already have an experienced team in place, plus a number of successful tried and tested systems for managing rental property, it seemed a logical next step to expand our business by opening an additional office in a nearby town.
“We decided to launch in Bingham because it borders on our territory and it has got a really buoyant property market – in fact, last year it was cited in the media as one of the top ten places to live. It’s got a good comprehensive school, property is affordable, and it’s got a market town atmosphere even though it’s close to Nottingham with good commuter links. There’s an awful lot of new building happening in Bingham and the surrounding villages too so there will be plenty of opportunities for the new office moving forward.”
As part of Charlotte’s expansion, two of her long-term staff members have become franchise owners.
“In order to manage both offices effectively, two members of staff, Graham Croft and Katie Archer, have joined me as franchise owners,” continues Charlotte.
“Katie has been with me since 2005 and Graham joined Belvoir Melton Mowbray in 2006 so both will bring considerable experience to the new office.
“Having them on board will enable the business to grow further and faster and, ideally, we’d like to add an additional 100 managed properties to our portfolio.
“We currently have over 300 managed properties at the office in Melton Mowbray and we’re hoping that the office in Bingham will provide the opportunity to expand our managed portfolio further.”
