Meyers Estate Agents has expanded into Ringwood and Verwood after experienced estate agent Patrick Hester agreed to manage the firm’s new territory.
Hester, who previously worked for Austin & Wyatt, Winkworth and Allsopp, will now operate the franchise.
He said: “I’ve always wanted to run my own estate agency and now, with ten years’ experience in both the UK and abroad, the timing was right.
“I worked with some of the Meyers’ franchisees in other firms a few years ago, more recently following their progress and success with Meyers.
“I’m from Poole originally and know the surrounding area well, so when the opportunity became available to run the Meyers franchise for Ringwood and Verwood it was the perfect choice.”
Meyers Estate Agents, set-up by Mark Meyer and his wife Claire over 10 years ago, is fast expanding and recruiting nationally.
Meyer commented: “Our franchisees have been able to become award winners and market leaders in their locations without any high street visibility at all.
“Our approach has proved hugely popular over the years and now we welcome Patrick to help grow the Meyers brand and reputation in the region.”
