Belvoir has announced that two new franchise owners have joined the group, further strengthening the brand in Wales and Scotland. Rob Price successfully completed induction training and is due to open Belvoir Cardiff in September, whilst Lewis Stuart recently completed the resale of Belvoir Aberdeen and has already started work in this busy office.
With a background in IT, Rob said: “About two years ago I felt the time was right for a change of career. I began looking for opportunities where my strong quality ethics could be used to build a new business based on excellent service. I researched many opportunities and that eventually led me to the lettings industry. I felt that the Cardiff lettings industry was vibrant and competitive but still had room for growth.
Prior to buying Belvoir Aberdeen, local man Lewis Stuart managed another lettings agency for four years, and before that he ran his own business. “I had my own business for over 25 years, making orthopaedic footwear,” said Lewis, “I then moved into the lettings industry and managed another agency for four years before deciding to work for myself again. The induction course was very comprehensive and I am really enjoying working with the team at Belvoir Aberdeen and helping to deliver a quality service.”
Commenting on the latest recruits to the Belvoir network, MD Dorian Gonsalves said: “The launch of Belvoir Cardiff will greatly strengthen the Belvoir brand in Wales, alongside our existing offices in Swansea and Wrexham. We wish Rob every success for the future.
“Belvoir Aberdeen is one of ten Belvoir offices in Scotland and I am sure that the ambition and determination demonstrated by Lewis Stuart will help to make this office one of the top performers within the group.”
