    Episode 51: Scott Gunn

    Today's guest has over 15 years of experience selling homes, having sold his very first house in 2002, when he was just 18 years old. 



    Having joined eXp in October 2019, he was the 2020 eXp Top Performing agent in the UK, voted UK's Most Supportive Agent by his peers,  and Rev Share Agent Of The Year.



    He saw an opportunity and borrowed £20,000, fast-forward just over 3 years and his life is very different. 



    He was finally earning over £100,000 (by quite a way), took 6 weeks off last summer, refurbished his house and as of this week exchanged on his 4th buy to let.



    He helps explain to estate agents how they can start their very own business, so I thought who better to get on the podcast and discuss how to get more listings.

    Episode 50: Robert Hodgson

    Today's guest spent a dozen years in the corporate world of estate agency before setting up his own estate agency at the start of 2019.



    Having been involved in a chain with him when I was still an agent, I know first-hand what a fantastic agent he is so I had to get him on the podcast.



    After entering the Estate Agency profession in 2007, he quickly realised that he had a passion for building lasting relationships with people and he started Margaret James Estate Agents with the aim to provide an outstanding service to his clients and help them realise their property dreams.



    He has made great progress in gaining a share of the market in a competitive market town with already established players by mixing his experience, local knowledge, customer service, and technology.

    If you're looking for something for inspiration to enter a new market, this is an episode for you not to miss.

    Episode 49: Richard Zeff

    Today's guest is an estate agent covering South Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas.


    He has over 25 years of experience and has been responsible for over £350,000,000 worth of residential property sales and responsible for the letting and management of hundreds of properties.

    He started in real estate in the 1990s, and, apart from a few years spent living and working abroad, he has always been an estate agent and has been fortunate to work as an agent in Europe, and Africa too.

    He started his own bespoke estate agency in early 2022 because he wanted to give his clients personal, professional and world-class service.

    His values are trust, integrity and commitment, and my goal ultimately is to deliver an exceptional and positive moving experience.

    He believes in professional and personal development and alongside his estate agency career, several years ago, he launched a training company for the industry.

    He has got to meet and work with some of the UK's most successful estate agents and still works with industry groups including Agents Together.

    These are the many reasons I wanted to get him on the podcast to add value to the listeners.

    It also helps that he is a top guy as well.
