How officebroker Helped a Growing Business with their Office Expansion
When youΓÇÖre a growing business planning an office expansion a little expert help can go a long way. HereΓÇÖs how officebroker.com helped Mint Accountants Services & Supplies expand their Portsmouth office.
When Portsmouth-based Mint Accountants Services & Supplies decided to expand their office, they turned to officebroker.com consultant Peter Beck to negotiate on their behalf. The result? Peter was able to turn a stressful situation into a success story.
Since launching in May 2013, Mint Accountants Services & Supplies has been going from strength to strength. As a result, they were soon ready to expand their Portsmouth offices. However, initially, negotiating an expansion on their space proved more difficult than they had expected. As their Managing Director, Kerry-Ann Louth, explains:
ΓÇ£Until officebroker stepped in we were really struggling to secure the deal we wanted. Things had got so bad I was thinking of relocating the whole office.
ΓÇ£This wouldΓÇÖve meant complete marketing and stationery reprints as address and phone number of the office location would have changed. As we are a new business this was a massive expense to re-outlay.ΓÇ¥
Furthermore, as a new business, Mint wanted to devote as much time as possible to the core business activities which will help them grow ΓÇô rather than diverting time and resources to negotiating on an office expansion.
Fortunately, one call to officebroker put Kerry in touch with office space consultant Peter Beck, who was able to enter into negotiations on their behalf.
ΓÇ£Peter discussed all the requirements I had and what I needed to help my business grow, as well as the budget I was prepared to pay,ΓÇ¥ says Kerry.
ΓÇ£Peter kept in close contact throughout the negotiations, always replied to my emails and calls promptly and knew exactly what was going on at all times. Through PeterΓÇÖs hard work and negotiation skills we managed to secure the deal I wanted; I really canΓÇÖt thank him enough and will be recommending him to all my future clients.ΓÇ¥
officebrokerΓÇÖs Peter Beck says: ΓÇ£It was a pleasure to work with Kerry and her team on their office expansion and IΓÇÖm glad I was able to help them secure the deal they needed.
ΓÇ£Kerry came to us for advice moving her business forwards; we were able to use our networks and relationships to assist Kerry in negotiating an expansion in her current building.
ΓÇ£For a small business in the early stages, itΓÇÖs important to keep things as simple as possible, minimise disruptions to day-to-day business, so they can focus their time and energy on the business activities that help them grow. IΓÇÖm pleased this was something I was able to achieve for Kerry and her company.ΓÇ¥
As for Mint Accountants Services & Supplies; theyΓÇÖre already looking to further future growth. With their recently launched payroll service already taking off, theyΓÇÖve got their sights set on Australia next.
When theyΓÇÖre ready to expand their offices once more, Kerry says sheΓÇÖll definitely be giving Peter and the officebroker team a call.
