Having gained 30 years’ experience as an estate agent, in 1999 Jason Williams decided to start his own business eventually opening branches in five towns across Denbighshire and employing 17 staff. This period of growth brought a multitude of awards including the prestigious ESTAS GOLD Best Estate Agent in Wales for four consecutive years. Not one to rest on his laurels, Jason’s next step was to explore the possibility of expanding into neighbouring Flintshire whilst simultaneously setting up an innovative on-line agency.
When an opportunity arose to buy premises in a prime location in Mold, Jason jumped at the chance. However, he soon found that competition was intense and moving quickly was crucial. Luckily, he was put in contact with Shayne Yates, Head of Delivery at Antur Teifi, who arranged finance for Jason through Shire Finance.
Said Shayne “I was able to support Jason with just one phone call. His proposal was fast-tracked to the team at Shire Finance and the offer was on the table within three working days which really helped Jason to achieve his aspirations for growth.”
Jason himself was very impressed with the service. He said “The process was so simple and so quick. If I’d had to wait much longer for the funds I would have lost the perfect premises for expanding my business.”
The Mold branch has already won the Flintshire British Property Award and the recently established on-line agency has exceeded even Jason’s own ambitious aspirations. Jason is proud of his achievements not only for himself and his staff but for the locality.
Jason again “The finance from Shire through Antur Teifi has not only enabled me to expand my business but to contribute to the local economy in so many ways not least in the recruitment of 5 new members of staff.
