How officebroker Helped a Growing Digital Agency Find Flexible Space
ΓÇ£The whole process was as painless as I could have hoped forΓÇªΓÇ¥ says Alex Minchin, Managing Director of Zest Digital, on his experience of working with officebroker.com to find new business premises in Oxford.
Following a period of rapid expansion, and with ambitious future plans in the pipeline, digital marketing agency Zest Digital needed flexible office space to accommodate their growing team. They turned to officebroker.com consultant Peter Beck to help them with their search.
From the outset, Alex Minchin, Managing Director at Zest Digital, was clear about the agencyΓÇÖs needs for their new office. After taking on five new staff members last year, and with plans to expand the team further, flexibility was high on the priority list.
Moreover, as the agency continues to grow, they were looking for a space which would look more professional to clients and visitors.
Armed with AlexΓÇÖs specification, officebroker consultant Peter Beck set to work searching the office market for options which met ZestΓÇÖs criteria.
Alex explains what happened next:
ΓÇ£Peter helped us to shortlist some options in and around our chosen area of Oxford, highlighting the benefits and drawbacks to each and arranging viewings on my behalf. PeterΓÇÖs work made it easy for me to fit viewings in and around my schedule whilst keeping on top of my business. He also followed-up regularly to ensure our needs were constantly being met.
ΓÇ£Once we had chosen two offices that we were very keen on, Peter helped to negotiate on our behalf and arranged last minute viewings. We successfully signed on our new office. The whole process was as painless as I could have hoped for, and Peter and officebroker were key to this.ΓÇ¥
ΓÇ£As a business owner and MD, Alex is an incredibly busy person, which made it my role to take care of all the details, handle the negotiations and generally make the search as easy and hassle free for him as possible.
ΓÇ£Of course, my job was made all the easier by the fact that not only was Alex a pleasure to work with, he was also very clear about what he needed from his office to support the next phase of his businessΓÇÖs development. IΓÇÖm delighted I was able to help Alex and his team find the right space.ΓÇ¥
So would Alex recommend officebroker to other busy business owners?┬á ΓÇ£Yes, absolutely. Simple service with just the outcome I needed. I have enough to focus my attention on, and office searching is not something I want to be spending my time worrying about. With officebroker, I knew that I would be presented with options that met my criteria, and this took away the time and hassle of the process.ΓÇ¥
With the search complete, the Zest team is now looking forward to moving into their new office ΓÇô and seeing the rest of their ambitious plans take shape.
As Alex says: ΓÇ£We’re up for an award in June and will be looking to capitalise on this as a means of growing our client base further. In addition, we’re developing key partnerships to provide multilingual content to existing and new clients. The global opportunity is huge when it comes to digital marketing, so we’re looking to take advantage of a largely untapped area [ΓÇª] We’re also looking to expand our team further, with a few roles highlighted that would make a positive impact on our service. In the immediate future, we’re looking forward to moving into our new office!ΓÇ¥
