An estate agent who co-presented a popular BBC property programme has opened a new venture in West Cheshire.
Scott Lucy, of Shocklach, worked on the Living in the Sun series with Nadia Sawalah and the late Kristian Digby where he was the programme’s Spanish property expert.
The father of two has now swapped the Costa Blanca for Cheshire to launch Amazing Results! which he describes as an estate agency with a big difference.
Scott said: “I moved to Shocklach to be close to my son and daughter following many successful years owning estate agency offices in Spain. The BBC work came by out of the blue and ended up being a lot of fun until the Spanish property crash in 2007.
“Thankfully the UK market has recovered well from its own problems and when the opportunity came up to buy an Amazing Results! franchise for Cheshire I released my pension pot, took a chance and we launched last month (August).
“I’ve been in estate agency for fifteen years but the way Amazing Results! do things is certainly very different from anything I’ve experienced.
“We’re a hybrid of an online and traditional high street agent and we offer the best of both those worlds. We have huge exposure on the property portals as well as offering a sole point of contact to property vendors. This means you’ll only ever be dealing with me rather than being passed around an office or worse still, not having any real personal service.
“We do not have high street offices instead we ‘take over’ underused window space from local shops. This is a win win situation. The local shopkeepers get some needed extra revenue, we get high street exposure without the usual expensive costs and this is passed onto our clients through lower commission fees.”
The initial response to Scott’s new business has been so encouraging he is already looking for people to join his team.
