Haart has revealed its first Welsh partner agent as it continues to roll out its expansion strategy across the UK and also how much they can earn under the new scheme.
The latest partner is 51-year-old Belinda Bishop who has worked for the firm for over ten years but is to become a branch partner for Haart in Cardiff, although previously she has worked for Chewton Rose, also part of the Spicerhaart family.
Spicerhaart has also been recruiting externally for partners to join the network, offering a £20,000 to £30,000 basic salary, OTE earnings of £75,000, home working, a BMW company car and, once £100,000 profit is met, an additional 2% on all sources of income.
The company is reticent about how many Haart branches it is closing or moving to ‘virtual status’, saying only in July that 23 branches mothballed during Covid would not open, and that a further four were due to be closed when their leases were due for surrender.
The company’s spokesperson was not able to give an update on progress, so the Negotiator has compared Haart’s branch list from to two years with its current network of offices published on its website, which is assumed to be accurate.
This reveals that of the 131 branches it had two years ago, 12 have gone ‘virtual’ and no longer cite a physical address, while nine have closed.
The Partnership initiative is kicking off in the West Midlands, Leeds, Brighton, Southampton, the Oxford-Cambridge corridor and in additional locations around its existing Bristol Property Centre, but has since spread to other areas including Wales and including its other brands such as Butters John Bee.
