As Mayfair & Morgan open our new property sales branch in Antrim town, senior sales partner Emma Jamison will be giving you her top tips, when it comes to property.
What is the essense of our business?
Mayfair & Morgan are a real estate company which deals in property investments, property management and now residential sales. Our head office is in Guernsey, with sub offices in Dubai and Antrim town. If you were to google Mayfair & Morgan you would see that we launched Europe's leading crowdfunding property platform, allowing members to invest in residential property from as little as £1000.
What do you personally specialise in?
Essentially my backgroud is in business development and people management. I have headed up large teams, across multisites both at local and regional levels. This skill set along with my natural selling ability led to the founder of the Mayfair & Morgan brand approaching me to help rebrand and grow the business here in Northern Ireland.
Why did I choose to work for Mayfair & Morgan?
By it's very concept, Mayfair & Morgan presents itself as dynamic, forward thinking and progressive. This is particularly true of the investment and crowdfunding arm. The brands ideas and values excited me, I researched the company and thought "these are people who think outside the box". After meeting with the Mayfair & Morgan founder, Paul Skillen, his passion, enthusiasm and vision had me hooked. From that moment I have never looked back.
What does the brand do locally?
In 2012 Mayfair & Morgan took over a local estate agency called East Antrim Property Sales. Since then the business has continued to trade largely untouched. In 2017, with house prices rising and the rental market still seeing much more demand then supply, the decision was taken to invest, grow and expand the business in Northern Ireland.
What is your favourite thing about the job?
Right now the excitement and variety. Mayfair & Morgan have invested over £100,000 to relaunch and rebrand the office here. Our Antrim office is currently in the midst of a refurb, and we are currently recruiting sales staff to expand the team. Getting involved with the progressive business at a time that is essentially "the start up phase" means that each day is uniquely varied and challenging. From directing builders to home valuations, my days are filled with the kind of mix of people and activities that I thrive on. I love to see the change in a person's demeanour when they walk through the door of their dream home, knowing that you have had a helping hand.
Why would you recommend Mayfair & Morgan? What makes you different?
We are more than just an "estate agent". With people regularly tuning into programmes such as 'Location Location, Location' the public now have a much higher expectation of what a property specialist should be. They want a Kirsty Allsop. They want dynamic vision, direction and honesty. At Mayfair & Morgan we bring exactly that. We, by our very concept, are "Above the crowd".
