Essex Estate Agent: Russell Quirk Interview
The experienced Essex Estate Agent explains why he’s launching an all new venture and he shares his insights into the local property market...
Russell Quirk was in the online estate agency space way before the likes of Purple Bricks. He and his brother, Anthony, established the traditional estate agency Quirk Deakin in 1999. Now, along with fellow agent Mark Readings, they are going into business with Keller Williams, the largest real estate company on the planet.
‘Months of contemplating and reflection have led me to invest in Keller Williams as the brand and model that has the potential to be one of the biggest estate agency businesses in the UK in addition to its worldwide status,’ says Russell.
His brother, Anthony Quirk says: "The industry is changing for the better and I'm delighted to be working with Mark and with Russell again to be part of a business that is set to dominate the Essex market."
The pioneering new agency has just launched in Brentwood. Exquisite sat down with Russell to find out more...
What will your new agency bring to the area?
The Quirk Readings at Keller Williams Market Centre is an agent that covers the whole of Essex via dozens of local experts in each corner of the county.
How does your service stand out from the crowd?
The difference between us and the usual agent is that we are all about empowering our agents to be genuinely involved with their clients from start to finish. No fobbing off, no standard opening hours. Our agents work with a small number of clients each and are devoted to them. Each agent is a local expert, living in and knowing the area.
What excites you the most about your new venture?
For years estate agency has been pretty old fashioned. A standard, undifferentiated 9 to 5 approach which has often been a bit hit and miss.
What excites me about the Keller Williams approach is that it is all about empowering and supporting the agent to deliver exceptional service to their clients 24/7. It will see them earning the lion’s share of the commission, so they remain truly motivated and attentive.
