Spicerhaart Part-Exchange & Assisted Move has enjoyed record growth 2019, with sales growing two-thirds (67%) by both volume and value compared to 2018 – which itself was a record year for the business.
Acting for a vast number of builders and developers across the UK, Spicerhaart Part-Exchange & Assisted Move provides a comprehensive range of part-exchange and assisted move services, including its own ground-breaking funded part-exchange proposition.
The business has taken on two new area negotiators during the year to cope with the growing demand for its services. The business is still actively expanding, looking to take on additional negotiators in the New Year and to complete a long-awaited move to new state-of-the-art offices in Sheffield.
Lucy Folly and Yuella Hutton both joined Spicerhaart Part-Exchange & Assisted Move in 2019 from the retail sector but found it difficult to spend time with their families, when irregular hours would get in the way of family events. They both find that as well as more regular hours, a career with Spicerhaart Part Exchange & Assisted Move offers considerable variety, and working as part of a close-knit team.
Lucy, who covers South Yorkshire and the East Midlands, had previous experience in the property market having worked as a lettings consultant when she was younger. She enjoys having a particular geographical patch as it enables her to form strong relationships with developers and group branches. Her principal motivation for the move to Spicerhaart was “to have a career with opportunities to progress in the future”.
Yuella’s area includes Kent, Essex and the M4 corridor. She has a long-standing interest in the housing market, so the move into the property sector was a natural one. For Yuella, the interaction with clients and customers is key: “It’s nice to be able to build a rapport with everyone.”
Neil Knight, business development director at Spicerhaart Part-Exchange & Assisted Move commented:
“This is the latest in a string of good results for us and we’re expecting this success to continue into the New Year, with more confidence returning to the market and people getting on with moves they may have been putting off.
“We will definitely be looking to bring new people into the team. I believe we offer a very good working environment, with a close-knit team and soon brand new offices as well.”
As part of the wider Spicerhaart group, the part-exchange and assisted move team has the support of numerous branches throughout England and Wales. This gives developers the peace of mind that they will get the property values right so they can part-exchange stock with confidence.
For those buyers whose current properties are not eligible for part-exchange – or who do not want to go down this route – the team can offer the assisted move option. In these cases, Spicerhaart Part Exchange and Assisted Move will handle the sale of the home buyer’s existing property with the developer covering the cost of the estate agents’ fees in most cases.
