An estate agent from Terrington St John Fen End, who has just set up his own franchise, has stepped in to sponsor a youth football team.
Peter Johnson, who set up his online Local Estate Agent business in December, is providing the kit for Clenchwarton Youth Football Club Under-9s team.
Mr Johnson’s online business, which went live at the end of December, covers an area within a 20-mile radius from his home. He said: “Since setting up I have had one house on the market and have already sold it within one week at the full asking price.
“I go out to see properties and do everything that one would expect from a high street agency, except that it’s at about a third of the cost. I charge 0.5 per cent in fees.”
The concept of the online Local Estate Agent provides all the services offered by high street agents, but without the overheads of a shop front and associated costs, he said.
Mr Johnson has 16 years experience as an estate agent dealing with residential, commercial and corporate properties. His partner, Emma Whiting, assists him with the administration. He said: “She is my central cog and deals with all inquiries, obtains leads and makes sure everything runs smoothly.
Peter and Emma visited the football ground in Hall Road to present the kit.
