Sought-af­ter Dids­bury the place to be for Ben

Macclesfield Express - - HOMES -

MEET Ben Foster, fa­mous fol­low­ing Ju­lian Wad­den’s Have you Met Ben? cam­paign, splashed through­out the M20 area this week.

He’s the top man brought in to head up Ju­lian Wad­den Dids­bury.

When teased about his now leg­endary mugshot, Ben said: “We’re all about be­ing big, bold and in­no­va­tive at Ju­lian Wad­den and I guess Ju­lian wanted M20 cus­tomers to know I was here.

“Ju­lian and I have been on each other’s radar for some time and this is just the right time for me to join his team, and more im­por­tantly to head up the Dids­bury branch.

“I’ve al­ways ad­mired the rep­u­ta­tion Ju­lian has gained in Dids­bury. He worked for many years in M20 be­fore set­ting up in­de­pen­dently and his rep­u­ta­tion con­sists for­mi­da­ble ef­fi­ciency, ser­vice, at­ten­tion to de­tail and never for­get­ting who he was work­ing for – which is the cus­tomer.

“Ju­lian and I are on the same page in how we op­er­ate and how a branch should be run – the tim­ing of me join­ing is that it had to be Dids­bury, no other area would do. Dids­bury for me is ‘Manch­ester’s ur­ban vil­lage’.

“There’s nowhere else like it in the north west, it’s beau­ti­ful, leafy, cool, hugely cos­mopoli­tan and has a great buzz about it.

“Just walk down Bur­ton Road or Wilm­slow Road – it’s so alive. The place has huge ap­peal and so hous­ing here is highly sought af­ter in both sales and let­tings. In Dids­bury it’s not about whether your prop­erty will sell or let, that’s a given, it’s about whether you feel the agent se­cured the best price for you and worked for your in­ter­ests; did they lis­ten to you, was your ex­pe­ri­ence with the agent smooth, con­sis­tently ef­fi­cient and dare I say it an en­joy­able one?

“I feel there’s huge po­ten­tial to raise the ser­vice bar, and this in­cludes at Ju­lian Wad­den Dids­bury, we want to be the new breed of es­tate agent that re­ally does go that ex­tra mile.”

Ben, who has worked in Dids­bury be­fore, ad­mits that Dids­bury cus­tomers de­serve much more and that to­day’s agents should bet­ter re­flect the area.

He said: “These are the con­ver­sa­tions Ju­lian and I have had over the last few months, analysing the best prac­tice em­bed­ded in his other South Manch­ester branches.

“Over the last cou­ple of months I have worked closely with Ju­lian to hand­pick a new sales team and I am de­lighted with the lo­cal in­tel­li­gence, ex­per­tise and fo­cus on ser­vice they will bring.

“My new as­sis­tant man­ager Rachel McKie, who has also worked in Dids­bury, has an out­stand­ing track record in ex­e­cut­ing sales to com­ple­tion ef­fi­ciently and rel­ishes her new op­por­tu­nity with me to drive ser­vice stan­dards in es­tate agency.

“I en­cour­age any­one who has been less than sat­is­fied with another agent or even with us to drop in and meet my new team, I be­lieve we will change your mind.”

Ben Foster joins Ju­lian Wad­den this month hav­ing run highly suc­cess­ful branches in Wilm­slow, Hale and Bramhall, along with pre­vi­ously work­ing in Dids­bury.

Ben who is qual­i­fied in busi­ness man­age­ment and residential prop­erty, brings over 10 years’ branch man­age­ment ex­pe­ri­ence.
