In our experience, most estate agency owners rarely have a considered business exit strategy, or more importantly perhaps, taken the necessary steps to prepare their business for a potential sale. Is this a surprise? No – not really, as in most cases they are simply too busy reacting to the everyday demands of running of their company, or more often than not, not known where to make a start.

So, this is where ideology consulting can help both you and your business – to help ensure a smooth transfer of ownership, as well as secure a fair sale price. It is true that times are changing, so don’t be reticent in seeking the right advice for your circumstances from former estate agents who have personal experience of selling their own businesses.
