Manager of Whitchurch estate agency aiming for growth
The new manager of estate agents Hallsâ€™ Whitchurch office is aiming to grow the business in North Shropshire and South Cheshire.
Nick Ball, 43, who has nearly 23 yearsâ€™ experience of the property industry in Shropshire, takes over the reins at 8, Watergate Street from Tom Jones, who has moved to Scotland to manage a country estate.
He joins Halls after four years as business development manager for a company selling conveyancing services to estate agents in the North of England. He was previously sales director and area manager for another local estate agent.
â€œI am thoroughly enjoying being back in the estate agency market and am looking to drive the business forward,â€ he said. â€œHalls is a very well respected and successful company and has great potential to expand into new areas.
â€œHaving worked in Nantwich and Market Drayton, I already know most of the area and our job is to try and deliver the best possible customer service to establish Hallsâ€™ Whitchurch office as number one in the town.â€
Mr Ball leads a team of four, which includes sales negotiators Dawn Wheeler, Louise Hocknell and Clair Grimley.
Away from work, he is a keen sportsman, currently turning out for Prees Cricket Club as well as playing golf and tennis. Next month, he has booked a holiday to New Zealand to watch England take on Scotland in the Rugby World Cup.
