The recruitment of an experienced sales expert by a growing Midlands estate agent has resulted in a set of four property professionals getting back together in Worcestershire.
Kevin Johnson has joined Nicol & Co as a senior sales specialist, once again teaming up with owner Matt Nicol, operations director Neil Randle and mortgage advisor Nick Marsh.
The four were all working together at an estate agent called The Property Centre more than ten years ago before Mr Nicol departed to set up Nicol & Co in 2009.
Since then, Mr Johnson has had seven years out of property working in the automotive industry, spending some of that time in Surrey, but knowing he was back in Worcestershire and available for hire Nicol & Co quickly snapped him up.
Mr Nicol, managing director of Nicol & Co, said: “Kevin brings a wealth of sales experience built up over more than two decades.
“I first met Kevin when I began as a junior negotiator at The Property Centre in 2004, working under his wing, and we were together for the duration of my time at that company where I rose through the ranks to branch manager before leaving to set up on my own.
“Neil Randle, my number two and operations director, and our independent mortgage advisor Nick Marsh also both worked with Kevin at The Property Centre, so this is very much a ‘getting the band back together’ scenario.
“One of Kevin’s appeals is that he is an old school estate agent, like Neil and myself, knowing the value of phoning out stock and keeping up a regular contact with customers.”
Mr Nicol added: “Kevin will immediately fit in with our client-focused team and will help the company with its expansion plans.”
Mr Johnson said: “I’m delighted to be joining Nicol & Co having been impressed by the progress the company has quickly made across Worcestershire.
“It will be a pleasure reforming the old quartet with Matt, Neil and Nick and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in as the company continues to grow.”
Nicol & Co already has branches in Droitwich Spa and Worcester, and its third office in Malvern is planned to be opening towards the end of this year.
