Alex Sunjich launched his Agency Express franchise in August 2015. Moving from a career in the petrochemical industry, Alex decided to take control of his future and fixed his sights on owning a franchise business.
Prepared with a list of prerequisites, Alex set upon the journey of becoming his own boss, and after extensive online investigation he decided that the Agency Express franchise opportunity met all his requirements.
“I wanted a van based business where I could work on my own. Something that was simple to operate, with minimal paperwork but ultimately have a good turnover. Agency Express offered just that.”
After successfully completing the Agency Express comprehensive five day training course, Alex was then assisted in the launch of his new business. This included a detailed three day programme of visits to estate agents within his allocated territory, enabling him to make first contact with potential customers. During this time Alex exceeded all expectations and was on target to accomplish his goal of running a successful franchise business.
“I really enjoyed the Agency Express training programme, it was very helpful and transparent. Everyone at Agency Express was friendly and I felt part of the team from day one.”
Within the first year Alex’s business grew from strength to strength. His patient approach in acquiring new business and high standards of service have played fundamental part in his success. During this time, he had established a solid base of customers and had earned an excellent reputation within the area.
“It is hard work, I’ve learnt that the key is keeping communications open and don’t be afraid to ask. How much effort you put in will determine what you get out. The part I enjoy most is that I control my own hours and I work for myself. There is no limit on how far you can take the business.”
The key to Alex’s success has been consistency and drive. His second to none approach and can-do attitude have safeguarded him thriving future.
