officebroker.com’s Marcus Shelton Highly Recommended
When Sharon Burkey from recruitment and career development firm, Purple Eclipse Executive Search & Coaching, contacted officebroker.com for help finding a new office, she confessed to being “unsure” about the broker experience.
But having spoken to Marcus Shelton, one of officebroker.com’s most experienced Account Managers for the Thames Valley and Greater London region, Sharon soon found her questions quickly answered and was booked in to see a number of offices starting the very next morning.
“I have to say that Marcus was brilliant,” she said. “He answered all of the questions I had and took the time to really listen and understand our current situation, budget and requirements. Within a few hours we had appointments set to view several potential offices.”
When working with clients such as Purple Eclipse, time is of the essence as business owners are often hard-pressed to fit in office viewings or negotiate with office providers – therefore a fast-moving and consultative process is an essential part of the officebroker.com service.
This is particularly true of Purple Eclipse. Dedicated to breaking down the impressions of recruitment by offering a more ‘human’ approach, Sharon and her partner Louisa Norman have established a successful business that has seen demand soar over recent months.
As well as a friendly professional approach, the ‘human’ side also comes in the form of professional career coaching and performance motivation coaching – providing a one-to-one service to help professionals renew their career passion and develop the confidence to push their comfort boundaries, helping them to get to where they want to be and enhancing their day-to-day performance in the work place.
As Purple Eclipse has grown, so has the team, and along with requirements for a bigger office they also needed a quick turnaround that would minimalise business disruption.
Following recommendations from Marcus and a number of office tours, it didn’t take long for Sharon and Louisa to come to a decision.
“We found our new office space on the second viewing, only two days after speaking to Marcus,” said Sharon.
Commenting on the overall process and the service offered by Marcus, she added: “His approach was friendly yet professional, and he had a good understanding of his ‘products’ which ensured we only viewed offices that were relevant to our needs.
“I would most certainly recommend partnering with Marcus at officebroker.com should you be thinking about looking for new office space.”
The Purple Eclipse team are now due to move into their office in Weybridge in October.
Purple Eclipse Executive Search & Coaching places middle management and high level Sales, Marketing and HR candidates in the Leisure and Hospitality industry and also provide a coaching service to help professionals unlock their potential and enhance their career aspirations or day-to-day performance.
