Agency Express - Alex SunjichPrepared 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.

What Our Franchisees Say

During the last two and a half years, the business has grown to a point where I’m working at full capacity with one van. I really enjoy the freedom of being able to choose the hours I work, and I particularly appreciate being able to work from home.John Burke, Agency Express Colchester


A big factor was the relatively low start-up cost of the Agency Express franchise. However, the clincher for me was the people when I visited head office in Norwich. I felt a connection, everyone was very friendly and helpful but also professional. I thought to myself I could work with these people.Kevin Keeler, Agency Express Cheltenham and Gloucester


The support is still fantastic and you are never left alone when you need help. There is always someone on the other end of the phone to assist with whatever the problem may be. Agency Express staff are more like friends and family that you can just ring for a chat and that is a rare benefit other companies do not have.Danny James, Agency Express Teesside
