WINKWORTH MARKET OVERVIEW 2014

Winkworth have also strengthened their footing in the European market having recently opened their latest office in Guadalmina, situated near to the popular resort of Marbella. Winkworth Westbourne’s first sale of December was agreed to a buyer moving back to Bournemouth after spending twelve years in Spain and was referred by the owner of Winkworth Guadalmina. This shows the strength of the ever-growing Winkworth Network. The importance of being able to offer direct links with London, the Home Counties and beyond has become increasingly important in the local property market and Winkworth Westbourne have continued to capitalize on the excellent relationships they have built with the their London and International Offices. Having sold a large number of properties again this year to buyers who have been referred from both Central London Offices and those in the suburbs of London and surrounding areas, this ever-growing market has helped Winkworth Westbourne celebrate their best year to date.

the first quarter, which had a ripple effect down to our local property market has progressively subsided. The General Election, expected in May 2015, is no doubt the prime contributor to the quieter market. This trend is supported by our research which shows that there is frequently a slowdown in transaction levels in the months leading up to polling day. But factors such as stricter lending requirements as a result of the Mortgage Market Review have also contributed to this slow down during the second half of 2014. Looking to 2015, my expectation is that the market will continue to be slightly more subdued in the first half of the year however, in a reverse image of 2014, I expect the latter part of the year to see a pick up both in terms of prices and transactions. Confidence in the property market on the south Coast, was however restored in 2014 as the numbers relocating from the capital grew. I anticipate that this will continue in 2015 and in my opinion, price increases in the South will out perform London. Consequently, I expect to see strong demand here, particularly with investment, second home buyers and people relocating to the area.

Partner, Ben Jesty reports on the market during 2014 and outlines his predictions for 2015:

We have again, enjoyed our most successful year to date with completed sales figures far exceeding those of 2013. We have expanded our highly experienced team at the Westbourne office in order to ensure we continue to offer a first class service to each and every one of our clients, something which all of our staff pride themselves on.

There has been considerable variation in the residential property market between the first and second halves of this year. The spike experienced in London at the end of

BOURNEMOUTH’S LEADING ESTATE AGENT TAKES A MOMENT TO REFLECT With most of us being current or future homeowners, the property market interests us all and as Managing Director of Hearnes in Bournemouth, it is certainly no less intriguing for me. At Hearnes, we are well placed to judge the Bournemouth market as we cover 14 BH postcodes and as you may imagine, the properties we represent are extremely varied in both style and value, currently ranging from £50,000 to £2 million. In summary, it has been a varied year for the local property market, punctuated by some intense periods of activity and an unexpected lull, where buyers and sellers expectations were some distance apart. 2014 began positively with a surge of buyers attempting to buy before the speculated (but not forthcoming) base rate rise and therefore mortgage rate rise. Our sales during April increased by 225% in comparison to March, and we could not possibly have had enough properties to sell to match demand, which of course pushed prices up. In some instances we had up to 3 different purchasers offering on the same house which resulted in ‘highest and final’ blind bids as a fair method. This period was followed by worries that our housing market was again growing at a much too rapid pace and prices rising too quickly which could potentially throw us back into recession. And then the MMR (Mortgage Market Review), with it’s reformed regulations for lenders, most of which came into effect on 26th April 2014. The new regulations would affect buyers that had not yet submitted a full mortgage application, which can only be submitted upon finding a suitable property. The most dramatic change was that any buyer making an offer on a property after this date who was getting a mortgage directly with a bank or building society and not via a broker, had to typically endure an hour long face-to-face interview, sometimes in addition to a telephone interview. One couple relayed to me their dismay after being questioned over their outgoings, including the amount they spent on clothes and at the hairdressers per month... Let’s hope I’m not asked that question when I next apply for a mortgage! The biggest impact from an agents point of view, and it is still an existing issue, is the amount of time between a buyer submitting their mortgage

application to a mortgage valuation being instructed. Transactions which are mortgage related are in some cases taking nearly twice as long as they were before the MMR. Many sellers who haven’t moved recently still hold high expectations over how quickly their buyer should be proceeding to exchange of contracts, another obstacle we are continuing to attempt to overcome. A lull in the number of buyers in the market followed the MMR with the number of sales in June dropping by 66% compared to April’s sales. Many buyers were unable to borrow as much as they had been previously promised and some were declined mortgages under the new regulations. Despite this, many sellers were still under the impression the market was rising. Why? Most of the press was telling them so. Personally, it is one of the key frustrations I face whenever there is a period of growth followed by a period of stabilisation. The reason being that whilst the Land Registry data is the most reliable we have in our industry, the results are always revealing prices at completion, so typically 3-4 months after sale agreed prices. So yes, it is the most accurate information, but is already 3-4 months out of date by the time journalists write about it, therefore painting a false picture to sellers at the time. In addition to this, pockets of London were still seeing strong growth and this really helps to drive the national press articles. With the growth being particularly sharp over a short period and then levelling off quite quickly, the net result was an unprecedented number of fall throughs. If a sale hit a slight snag, as many do, then rather than it simply being overcome, both seller snd buyer felt (at the time) that they could achieve an equally as strong alternative option. It was a frustrating period for us, as a lot of work goes into achieving those agreed sales but we just concentrated on staying at the top for instructions and sales in Bournemouth and believing it would pick up eventually. Whilst we experienced a high and consistent level of sales in late Summer in comparison to

previous years, the market really came back to life in October, where it arrived with a bang! The property photographed, Tudor Lodge, priced at £1,500,000, was one of 27 properties to go under offer during October in the Bournemouth office. There are not too many properties in Bournemouth that can be described as famous, but to those growing up in the Talbot Woods area, Tudor Lodge certainly fits into that category! It is a stunning Character residence, built in the early 1900’s with most of its original features remaining, including staff quarters, open fire places and servant bells. Despite this, the property had been on the market for nearly 2 years with 3 buyers all coming to fruition in October 2014, the successful bidders being a local family. Of course a healthy market does not solely drive sales (although I wish it did!). As an agent, we earn our money through not only effectively marketing your property but through building and maintaining a go-to database of potential buyers for your property. This is why maintaining our local market-leading position in Bournemouth by way of how many properties we have on the market is of such importance; the more properties we offer for sale, the more buyer enquiries we receive and buyers often purchase alternative properties to the one they initially enquire after. The local database is built through tirelessly recording peoples’ likes and dislikes as well as their mandatories after each and every conversation we have, whether it be via a phone call, email enquiry or a visit to the office. I strongly feel that the importance and value of localness and good practice is on the up. Whereas some still see the value in using national agents, as they feel they will have more potential out-of-town buyers, that advantage is all but diminished as we live in an online/ Rightmove culture where those buyers will find their way to you regardless (e.g. if you want to


relocate to Winchester would you contact a Bournemouth agent and say ‘what have you got in Winchester?’). Tudor Lodge is perhaps a good casing point for this as the property had been on the market for many months with an international estate agent before we were appointed alongside another international agent. We were proud to be the agent that sold such a lovely property and to move a local family into their dream home. Furthermore, whilst writing this article, we are in the midst of progressing a 4 link chain to exchange of contracts, with all of those 4 links being sold through the Hearnes Bournemouth office! Local chain building will be one of our main focuses throughout 2015, enabling us to serve every sector of the market and offer our clients an ‘all-under-one-roof solution’. I have already started the structure within the office to support this having employed a full time experienced sales co-ordinator who started her career in estate agency in 1996, and who purely dedicates her time in helping our clients reach exchange of contracts once they’ve accepted an offer.

Looking at the market in general, in my opinion, we are likely to see further peaks and troughs throughout 2015 with external factors having an impact such as the general election, rugby World Cup and the timing of media speculation as to when The Bank of England will raise their base rate. However, in most cases mortgage repayments are still better value than paying rent and we are a society driven to own our own home. With fewer 95% loan to value mortgage products available and with the higher loan to value mortgages being so much more expensive, I am seeing more of the ‘parent bank’ in action wherever feasible. Whilst this ‘owning home culture’ still exists and the demand for homes outstrips the availability, I believe we can stay quietly confident. The recent announcement of a change of stamp duty land tax will also benefit the majority of buyers locally. Based on our average sale price during 2014 purchasers would have saved an average of £3383 in stamp duty when purchasing! Anyone looking to purchase between £125,000 and £937,500 will now pay equal or in the majority

of cases less stamp duty which is a welcome boost to all those looking to secure a purchase within this price range in 2015. If you have managed to get this far then I thank you for reading. I would like to wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy it and don’t be a stranger!

We work with clients from different continents, and have a Chinese speaking member of staff to specifically work with clients who speak mandarin. If you were to pick one resort where would it be and why? This is a tricky one… For pure lifestyle I’d pick Bay Villas, the sunset views are unparalleled and I love how remote the properties are – plus, because it’s Thailand, the price is so cheap! (From just £226,000) For investment, it would have to be Walsden Care Village. This is a massively expanding asset class, with significant demand. As the country’s population is ageing, the need for purpose built, quality care accommodation is increasing significantly. Walsden Care Village offers properties for purchase from £55,250 and 10% NET returns for 10 years too.

FOOD & DRINK

QUICK AND EASY CHRISTMAS CAKE Making a Christmas cake is a bit of an epic challenge, isn’t it? First comes the planning, then the mixing, then months of feeding it booze, then baking, making marzipan and spending an eternity icing it - only for half your Christmas party to eventually turn their noses up and opt for the chocolate log. It’s a whole lot of festive faff I’ve never involved myself in.

The cake was something my mum always made and now she’s not around, I either don’t bother, or make do with a ready-made Marks & Spencer affair. And it seems I’m not alone. A whopping one in five of us apparently buy a Christmas cake from the supermarket and pass it off as our own, according to research by Currys PC World. And unsurprising, less than half of us make the effort to bake our own cake, because we just don’t think we’re capable. We might love a bit of Bake Off and attempt the odd batch of biscuits here and there, but a Christmas cake is serious business, right? Wrong. And the lovely Rachel Allen is here to prove it. Not only can her delicious cake be made on Christmas Eve, but it’s so easy, she reckons each and every one of us can bake it. I agree to meet her for a masterclass and put this to the test. She arrives, all relaxed and mumsy, popping on her pinny and getting stuck in. She’s passionate about her craft but insists this cake is easier than making a Victoria Sponge. “It doesn’t need to rise,” she says, blue eyes sparkling with a giant smile spread across her face. “You just bung everything in together and bake it.” And, to be fair, that is exactly what she does. “I like to include lots of other dried fruit, rather than just raisins, sultanas and currants,” she declares, throwing in a multitude of bits and pieces. “But feel free to play around with that. I love the toffee flavour of dates and crystallized ginger with the sugar on.” And as for feeding the cake with alcohol, as long as the fruit’s soaked for at least two hours, that’s more than enough, but if you do have time, you can leave it to get sozzled for a couple of days. Christmas cakes obviously take a while to cook but once all the ingredients are combined, Allen pops it in the oven and shows us how to make the icing. Now this isn’t your traditional Christmas cake. It’s iced with an Almond Paste, “which is a bit like marzipan” - but so much nicer.

Getting the paste to come together is a bit of an effort. You’ll probably feel like you want to add more water (or brandy) but keep at it and it will probably be fine. “Tip the last drop of egg in and that will probably do it,” she says. And it does fall apart a bit, but you patch it up like pastry and once the icing’s on the cake, go to town on it with a flat-edge cake smoother or a palette knife and it will transform into a thing of beauty. Granted, it does help having the patient confidence of a cook who’s clearly made this cake a million times before promising you it’s all working perfectly, but stick at it. The smoothing part is actually enormously addictive - and very therapeutic, so it’s good for getting rid of that festive stress. “And you can choose whether to put the brandy in your cake or your tummy,” 42-year-old Allen chuckles when discussing the trials and tribulations of Christmas. Not that you can imagine it being

anything but smooth sailing in the house she lives in with her husband and three children, in Ireland’s County Cork. Once you’re done - Allen recommends rolling a glass around the sides to ensure there are no gaps between the cake and the icing - all that’s left to do is add a few decorative shapes from the leftover paste, cover it in egg wash and bake it for 20 minutes. And there you have it - the easiest Christmas cake you could ever make. That you really, actually, genuinely can - and should - make. Mine is now proudly sitting in the utility room, where it will wait patiently until December 25, when I emerge from the kitchen looking incredibly smug and feeling very proud. And, as Allen, who likes to enjoy hers with a strong bit of cheese and a glass of port, says: “You get good value from a Christmas cake - look at how many slices you get.”


FOOD & DRINK

RECIPE

THREE OF THE BEST...

Rachel Allen’s Christmas Cake with Toasted Almond Paste Ingredients 150g sultanas

50g ground almonds

150g raisins

275g flour

110g chopped dried cranberries

2tsp mixed spice

110g chopped candied peel

For the Almond Paste:

110g chopped dates

450g ground almonds

110g chopped dried apricots

450g caster sugar

50g finely chopped crystallized ginger

1 large or 2 small eggs

150ml brandy or whiskey

2tbsp brandy or whiskey

275g butter, softened

A couple of drops of almond essence

275g light muscovado or soft light brown sugar

To brush on the cake:

5 eggs

1 small egg white, lightly beaten

Finely grated orange rind from 1 orange

2 egg yolks

Method Preheat the oven to 150C/135 fan/300F/gas mark 2. Line the base of a 23-inch non-stick cake tin and butter the sides. You can also put parchment paper around the outside of the tin to stop the cake drying out in the oven. Place the sultanas, raisins, dried cranberries, chopped candied peel, dates, dried apricots and the crystallized ginger in a bowl. Pour on the whiskey or brandy and allow to soak for at least two hours. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter very well. Add in the sugar and beat well, and then beat in the eggs one by one. Stir in the grated orange zest and ground almonds. Sift in the flour and spices and fold in gently, followed by the fruit and any alcohol left in the bowl. Transfer into the prepared cake tin and bake for between two-and-a-half to three-and-a-quarter hours. A skewer inserted into the centre of the cake will come out clean when the cake is cooked.

Remove all tin foil and greaseproof paper from the cake. Take about half of the almond paste and place it on a worktop that has been dusted with icing sugar. Roll until it is about 1cm thick. Paint the top of the cake with the lightly-beaten egg white and put the cake, sticky side down, onto the almond paste. Cut around the edge of the cake, then carefully turn the cake the right side up with the lid of almond paste attached to the top. Measure the circumference and height of the cake. Roll out two long strips of almond paste (to the length of the circumference) and trim both edges to the height of the cake with a palette knife. Paint both the cake and the almond paste lightly with egg white. Press the strip against the sides of the cake - do not overlap or there will be a bulge. Use a straight-sided water glass to even the edges and smooth the join. Rub the cake well with your hand (or cake smoother or palette knife) to ensure a nice flat surface.

Pour another tablespoon or two of whiskey or brandy over the top of the cake, as soon as it comes out of the oven. Cover the cake, still in the tin, with tin foil. This will keep the top of the cake nice and soft while it’s cooling.

At this stage, place the cake on a baking tray (Allen recommends turning the baking tray upside down so it’s easier to remove). Roll out the remainder of the almond paste to approximately 5mm thick, and cut out star, heart, holly or Santa shapes.

Once the cake has cooled, remove it from the tin and cover again in tin foil, until you’re ready to cover it with Almond Paste.

Paint the whole surface of the cake with some beaten egg yolk and stick the shapes on top and around the sides. Brush the shapes with egg yolk.

To make the Almond Paste:

Bake the cake in the centre of a preheated oven for 10-20 minutes until lovely and golden. Remove from the oven, allow to cool, then transfer to a plate.

Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/gas mark 7. Mix the ground almonds and sugar together in a bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs, add the brandy or whiskey and a couple of drops of almond essence, then add to the dry ingredients and mix to a stiff paste. Sprinkle the worktop with icing sugar, turn out the almond paste and work lightly until smooth.

Business ProďŹ le Grant Edward Brooks Edwards

When were you established? We started trading on a cold December morning in 2009 with our first office in Ferndown. It is, in fact, our fifth Birthday this month and I still find it hard to believe how far we have come in such a short period of time. We now employ nearly 40 people and have opened four offices with our fifth office opening soon. What has been your most difficult challenge? The most difficult challenge is finding the right people who are committed to what we are trying to achieve. The people who work for me are my company's best asset and I am so lucky to have found some of the very best estate agents in the area. What has surprised you the most? I am simply stunned by the support we have received since we opened our doors and the almost daily letters and e-mails I receive from clients thanking our staff for all of their hard work. It is very humbling and I thank all of our clients. What do you think makes a good estate agent? A good estate agent is someone who tries their very hardest, is honest and hard-working and someone who can appreciate the difficulties that people face when selling or letting their property. You have to have a tremendous amount of empathy for your clients and a really tenacious approach to problem solving.

What drives you to succeed? I have always been very driven in what I do because I really enjoy the job. I am also blessed to have a fantastically supportive wife and family. You have to be focussed and driven to make a success of any business in what has been a challenging economy and marketplace. I am very ‘hands on’ with all aspects of my company and work very closely with all of my teams to ensure I have a real understanding of how I can develop our business. Tell us more about Fine & Country Homes From Edwards; My teams and I recognize the need to constantly evolve and to offer a unique platform to market exclusive properties. Fine & Country provides us with award winning marketing tools that are unrivalled in this area. We recently visited the offices in Park Lane and were truly impressed with the operation and the marketing power that they offer. There is no doubt as to the importance of national and international marketing when dealing with the sale of exclusive properties. We are really excited by what we are now able to offer to our clients and look forward to demonstrating this fantastic service. So what is next for Edwards ? My teams and I are focussed on building on our great foundations and developing the business even further. We will be opening our fifth office in Broadstone early next year which we are really

excited about and then we will look to continue to expand into areas that really suit our Brand. Our Letting Department has grown from strength to strength and we now employ five full time staff to provide the best service for our clients. 2015 looks to be an exciting year for all of us at Edwards and we wish all of our clients a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


We would like to thank you for your continued support throughout a busy 2014!

promises. I also think a “good entrepreneur” should always be fair and equitable with staff and customers in equal measure.

What was your first job? Paper round!! My first job when I left school at 16 was in a drawing office on a YTS scheme. What has been your best and worst moment in business? My best moment in business was open the business with my wife, and 50% partner Juliet. My worst moment in business was the unrelenting pressure of corporate agency. I am so pleased now to be able to put the customer first. What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? Know your market and do plenty of research, but most importantly understand what your unique selling points are and stay true to them. What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? A good entrepreneur understands their customers’ needs and is able to deliver on their

What drives you to succeed? In many respects it’s fear of failure that drives me and the business to succeed in all that we do. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 10 years older!!

I’m very glad you asked, as we have just launched our brand new website, which has some great information about the business and some superb new features.

Business Profile Helen Rocker Just Shutters

When were you established? Chris and I established Just Shutters in 2006 and operated the business from home for four years before opening our showroom in Southbourne Grove in 2010.

If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Spent my childhood in Africa and I have great memories of this most beautiful spectacle.

What was your first job? I worked on a burger unit selling and serving burgers to the public at shows. I travelled all over the country meeting all different characters. It was hard work and very greasy but amazing fun.

What is your favourite local Haunt? The Larder House in Southbourne – the best coffee and quirky delicious food.

What has been your best and worst moment in business? No worst moment I can think of. Best moment was when we first started and a customer called to place an order for additional shutters. At this stage I knew we had a fantastic business and we were going to grow from strength to strength.

Why is your business successful? We have a great quality product supported by an amazing team. We deliver our promises to our customers which reflects in the additional orders we gain and the high number of recommendations.

What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? Do your research first and believe in your product.

What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? You need to have passion and self motivation.

What for the future? We will continue to grow the Just Shutters brand and franchise network throughout the United Kingdom and continue to search for great and enthusiastic people to join the Just Shutters team.

MY DAY A typical day in my life would be:

• 7am Wake up and have breakfast and then off to do the school run. • 8am Arrive at our showroom at 59 Southbourne Grove. • A busy day dealing with the day to day running of the showroom and drinking too much coffee. • 7pm leave for home. Dinner with my wonderful husband and two boys.

MOVERS & SHAKERS

This section is dedicated to the movers and shakers of local property, bringing you the news of who’s who, where they are and what they’re up to. If you have news of career changes, promotions and developments please send it to vicky@house-mag.co.uk for inclusion.

You can get a 2 year fixed rate from as little as 1.49%, a 5 year fixed rate from 2.56% (actually, I had to look at that again to make sure it was right – a 5 year fixed rate at 2.56% - wow!) 7 years fixed at 3.19% and even 10 years fixed at 3.45% - again wow! Yet, as it turns out, 91% of participants in the property market are fearful. Why is that? According to recent surveys, sellers are fearful they won’t get top price for their home and concerned about high estate agent fees. Buyers are fearful that they might pay too much for properties, fearful they won’t get a mortgage or worry whether they can afford it in the long term. The recent changes in stamp duty mean that they are no longer a problem for anyone buying below £2m so that concern has been swept away. Without going all philosophical here, fear is your imagination predicting the worst case scenario and amplifying it in your mind. Be honest with yourself and think about how many times your worst fears have been realised. I bet it’s less than the fingers on one hand. Yes, we have been through a crisis. Costs have risen, wages haven’t but we are on the turn. We can all feel it but are fearful of taking a leap too early. However, we all know what they say about the early bird….

At least some people have made the leap. Normally this time of year we are winding up our existing business in time for Christmas and not taking much new business on but this year we have not stopped.

Business Profile Tony Peters Planit Mortgages How did the company first begin? The company opened for business in April 2001 by proprietor Julie Hardman. Julie had been working for an IFA in London since 1991 and wanted to move to Dorset. With over 20 years experience and a large client bank, once she moved she found that a lot of clients followed her and she was able to take on staff and grow the business. How have you seen the company develop over the years since beginning? The company has been able to grow mainly through referrals. Customer service is essential to this business. In addition, having professional, hard working advisers who are good at communicating with customers is important. Anthony Peters joined us in 2011 and has been instrumental in growing our client base. Are there any goals you would like the company to achieve? We would like to help more people achieve their dreams of owning their own property. In addition, we would like to help the business sector by helping businesses refinance and grow. Buy to let has shown large growth in the last 10 years. Many of our clients are landlords and we have been able to help them grow their portfolios. Have you always wanted to set up your own business? Yes. It has been a challenge and there have been some rough times especially through the recession. Owning your own business means you can develop it in line with customer needs. It is also fulfilling to take on advisers and see them do well through training and development. What were your decisions behind setting up Planit Mortgages? I wanted to set up Planit Mortgages as many people were experiencing difficulties in obtaining mortgages. A lot of decisions at banks are made by computers. We have access to many

lenders who are not on the high street and who will look at individuals. This has lead to many new happy clients who have managed to buy property or remortgage when they had previously been declined by banks. How do you see the company growing? We will continue to put customers first. By providing first class service we hope that more clients will come to us. In the coming New Year we would like to help more first time buyers purchase their first property. We would like to help our existing customers move on or help them with loans for extensions to their properties. We can also help ensure they are paying the lowest rates possible for their circumstances. By remortgaging, many clients can save money especially if they are paying a lenders standard variable rate. Rates for mortgages are now at an all time low and now is a fantastic time to see if clients can save money. We can also help landlords grow their portfolios through refinancing. With regards to small businesses there are many ways we can help them expand for example through asset financing or commercial lending. In addition, we would also like to take on more advisers so that we can help more customers. As a mortgage company, what makes Planit Mortgages unique in comparison to your competitors? Every enquiry we take seriously, we will contact every lender to try and place a case. I would say that we are able to place over 90% of enquiries. For those people who we cannot help we can show them what steps they need to take to improve their standing so they can apply at some time in the future. We are able to deal with clients on the phone, online through computers or face to face if required. We understand that many people work during the week so our phone

lines are open in the evenings and at weekends. For developers and businesses, we have a select group of private funders who can help fund projects from £1m to £500m. Our largest deal completed has been £16m and we are currently looking at projects up to £275m. What is your most common question asked? Can you help me get a mortgage? Yes we can.

Business Profile Rob Batten

Spencers of The New Forest How did you get into this line of work? I’ve been an estate agent since I was 17. I fell into estate agency. It was a bit of luck that I found the job that suited my skills and strengths immediately after I left school.

What advice would you give someone starting up a new business? You’re only as good as your staff, so invest in them and look after them - buy them coffee machines!

When and why did you establish your own company? I’d been working for the property website Rightmove for six years dealing with the top estate agencies in the country and seeing best industry practice. In 2004 I was given the opportunity to purchase my own business in Brockenhurst and have never looked back.

What qualities make a good entrepreneur/ business person? You need to be creative and forward-thinking, driven and motivated.

What do you most enjoy about your work? Being in an industry where no two days are the same is always quite exciting. I’ve also been very lucky in seeing and selling some amazing properties over the years and I’ve met some very interesting people, too.

What are the most difficult aspects of your job? Negotiating the property minefield is the most difficult part: keeping things together, problem solving and finding solutions. A lot of hand-holding is required and appreciated, especially in an industry where people can change their minds; when that occurs we have to manage expectations and soften the blow.

Tell us about one of your most memorable work moments? The business was still in its infancy when we completed on our first million pound sale. We were approaching our first anniversary, and I remember that it was Christmas Eve – that was very memorable!

Tel 01590 622551 www.spencersnewforest.com

MY DAY A typical day in my life would be:

• In the office by 8.45am • Daily catch-up/meeting with the team

If you could be anywhere, where would you be and why? I am really happy in the New Forest, it’s such a beautiful place, and you can easily dip in and out of London on the train – why would you want to be anywhere else?

Where do you go locally to relax? A great forest or coastal walk ending up at a good forest pub for lunch.

What’s your favourite thing about Christmas in the Forest? Working in a small village community enables me to experience first hand the build-up and excitement leading to a village Christmas.

What is your New Year’s resolution? After a recent break from having a dog, we intend to have a new arrival in the New Year perhaps a rescue puppy!

What do you like most about where you work? I never tire of the stunning and diverse scenery and also the free-roaming animals.

• When we’re busy I’m working flat out, flying in and out of the office • Leave the office between 6-7pm • When it’s light we enjoy walking in the evening, but at this time of year I tend to go home, light the fire and snuggle down.

Business Profile Russell O’Sullivan Greys Estate Agents What is your position within the company? Director When did you start at Greys Estate Agents: May 2002 What was your first job? I started my own little car cleaning business at 12 or 13. I’d make my way from one end of the road we used to live in, to the other and had about 20 cars to do every weekend. My bike was the preferred mode of transport back then. What has been your best and worst moment in business? The recession was tough and big changes had to be made along the way but learning how to adapt (fast) and remaining focused to keep the business moving forwards was a huge achievement for us. What is the best bit about running a business? Being involved on a daily basis and building a company you are proud of. Having clients come back after dealing with them several years ago is always so nice to see and very humbling if I’m honest - We’re an independent company so have to perform, secure repeat business and maintain a strong reputation to survive and develop as a business. We aim to become an integral part of the community and provide a service people can trust so when I hear that people are recommending Greys for either sales or lettings, it’s reassuring to say the least. What advice would you give to anyone starting a local business? Depending on the type of business you are starting, the location you choose can either make or break your chances of success so don’t rush to acquire the first available unit – Take your time and be

thorough considering the options. You will need your first 3-6 months operating costs set to one side and a clear advertising campaign – It’s crucial to do your research and spend wisely when advertising as it’s easy to waste money in areas where there is no chance of a return. Brand awareness and building a profile is important from the very beginning as potential customers MUST know you exist so be creative. Always remember the fundamental reasons you went into business in the first place… To provide a good service to your customers, make a good profit and stand out from the rest – We’ve kept using our notorious ‘Spoken For’ oval boards as opposed to ‘Sale Agreed’ as it makes us different. Your working day won’t start at 9 and finish at 5 but if high standards are maintained and the hard work is put in, it will pay off. What drives you to succeed? Definitely my competitive nature. The simple fact that I believe in Greys and what we do here drives me to exceed whatever limits may be suggested. Do you have any comments on current market conditions? Supply is historically low and demand has been high, which has forced prices up dramatically since the start of the year. 2014 has been one of our busiest years and conditions (both sales and lettings) remain very active. What are your predictions for 2015? Positive hopefully. I would expect things to rise gradually, maybe 2-3% by the end of the year. However, I can’t see there is much room to maintain the sustainable growth we’ve seen this year so I’d like to see the supply/demand ratio even out a bit or it could have a knock-on effect. The recent changes in the structure of stamp duty will certainly have a good impact on the market especially for those

selling property in the region £250,000 - £300,000. Equally, there is a saving to be made by first time buyers making their way on to the property ladder. The majority of people buying and selling will benefit from the revised system. What are the plans for the future at Greys? We have several ideas and areas we would like to expand into but much of what we plan to do in the next couple of years will be governed by things out of our control… If the market remains active and the economy shows continuing signs of recovery, we have every intention to increase the size of the business with additional offices. We have recently reintroduced lettings back into our Upton branch, which will allow us to cast our net a little further and continue to build on our register of managed properties. We are looking to recruit a sales and lettings negotiator for our Upton office as soon as possible so please forward a CV to me for consideration, regardless of your level of experience. rosullivan@greysestateagents.co.uk

Business Profile We talk to Architectual Visualisation Specialists Planning 3D Who are Planning 3D? If you’ve ever seen TV programs such as Sarah Beeny’s ‘Double Your House For Half The Money’ or ‘Grand Designs’ with Kevin McCloud, you will have noticed how useful the 3D animations and images can be for understanding the proposed house plans or alterations. At Planning 3D, we offer this unique solution for your very own ‘Grand Design’, allowing you to explore your plans and make adjustments at the ‘Planning & Design’ stage, when the cost of change is lower and quicker. After all, you don’t want to make ‘nightmare’ changes during the Build phase, as those TV shows often highlight. What is the main benefit of using a company like Planning 3D We are a small, local business offering big impact solutions! The main benefit of getting help from us is that you can see how a feature wall, room or even entire house will look before you start the work. Whether you simply want to change the style of your front door and can’t decide what will look right or want to redesign your entire home from the ground up, we can help. We work with self builders as well as many other professionals including architects, developers, planning agencies, land & estate agents, interior designers and even solicitors! Our solutions are tailored to a clients specific requirements. By investing a relatively small amount at the start of your project, we can help you to avoid costly alterations during the build phase. Are Architects plans required before using your services? No. Planning 3D can work from a number of formats including your architects digital 2D plans, an interior designers hand drawn plan or, if it is an existing environment we can come out and measure. We then put these dimensions into our system and create a 3D model. This model can be customised and tailored to your specific plan, which means we can make alterations as your ideas develop. By collaborating with other professionals, we can work together to create a space that reflects your personality and lifestyle. Ideally clients should come to us at the earliest stage possible, to ease the pressure when making those crucial design choices. Typically what types of project do you work on? Our week is very varied. One day we may be liaising with a client who wants to see how their lounge will look furnished in a particular style and colour, then another we could be working on a housing project

with a local developer which requires planning permission. We tend to work mostly with self build customers, architects and developers who are looking to create visuals for their projects, however there is no specific type of client. We also work on commercial builds such as offices, retail, leisure and hotel. If you’ve got a plan, we can visualise it! Can the visuals be used in other ways, such as applying for planning? Yes, and they can help to support or oppose an application. Interestingly, we dealt with a project not long ago for a group of people who needed help opposing a new build near their block of flats. Residents of the block grouped together to form an opposition party, that collectively identified areas of key concern from a planning perspective. We worked in conjunction with the solicitor and residents. Our visuals showed buildings size, overlooking, street scene etc. and illustrated how the proposed design might negatively impact them. This created a more visually compelling argument against the proposed design, enabling a more informed decision at the council meetings. Do you offer other services apart from visualisations? Yes, absolutely! There really is a huge demand for our other property related services, which include 3D floor plans, animation and professional photography. If you are looking to sell or rent a property or perhaps you are a builder looking to

put your property portfolio online, we can offer quality photography at very competitive prices. Just take a look at our work online to see a great range of sample images. We are also one of the first companies in Dorset to offer ‘Twilight’ property photography. Our specialist lighting techniques enhance the look of the property by illuminating key selling features of your home at dusk, creating dramatic eye-catching images that really stand out to the buyers. Are your services cost effective? We recently provided 3D visualisation services to help a couple starting a new build project. They wanted to see how their design could look when built and furnished. When the client reviewed the visuals they identified 26 fundamental design changes that needed to be made, covering room size, window and door locations, lighting and even external finishes, such as brick and render choice. They told us the cost avoidance of these changes paid for their fitted kitchen! Was the client happy? Did they get value for money? Did they recommend us to others? Absolutely! I want to know more, what happens next? If you are interested in taking advantage of our services please either send a copy of your plans to info@ planning3d.co.uk or give us a call on 01202 237 937 to discuss the options available and how we may help you to proceed.

Business Profile Savas Ersahin Avenue Estates

When were you established? Avenue Estates opened its doors on the 2nd of June 2014, we previously traded under another name for 5 years and built up a large portfolio of landlords and managed properties but following a re-structuring of the business we decided it was time to go our separate ways and create Avenue.

What was your first job? I was actually a DJ in a local nightclub at the age of 17, too young to actually be in the club but they didn’t mind me supplying the music.

What has been your best and worst moment in business? Fortunately for me I am yet to have a bad experience in the business, I am only 27 so I am sure that along the way mistakes will be made but I guess that’s often the only way to learn. Creating Avenue Estates along with my partner Martin Brookes I would say is my best moment in business thus far. We took a run down carpet shop in Winton and created one of the most eye catching offices in Bournemouth, I think that within itself is an achievement.

What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? Surround yourself with positivity. Everyone has days when just want to stay in bed but by having positive people around you those days are quickly forgotten. When things aren’t going quite the way you plan its essential to

have people in your life that can bring you up and make you realize that things could be much worse, I am lucky to be surrounded by positivity in both my personal and business life. If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? In the Avenue Estates offices closing down deals of course, Oh unless it’s a weekend and then I would want to be laying on a beach in Thailand sipping on an ice cold cocktail with my wife.

What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? I am a strong believer that entrepreneurs are born and not made and I come from a family of entrepreneurs. My father who is my inspiration successfully built a catering company from nothing and is now reaping the benefits relaxing over in Florida. I think a good entrepreneur always has the willingness to take risks in business, so many people are scared of failing in business but if you don’t try you will never know.

What drives you to succeed? I think the fear of failure is what drives most people to succeed.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? In 10 years I hope to see Avenue Estates at the top of its game with multiple branches offering customers an honest, friendly and transparent service.

Business ProďŹ le Ralph Paris

Paris Estate and Letting Agents How did Paris begin? I started the business in 1993 and this was born out of my passion for property and people. Initially the focus was concentrated on my own rental properties and then as people saw how smoothly this ran other landlords asked if I would look after their interests and that is how my reputation grew. Then by natural progression this expanded into property sales. How has Paris developed over the years? The business has grown dramatically over the years, from me working from home, to a company that now has a prominent central office in Bournemouth with a team of 7 dedicated colleagues. The main area of expansion has been property sales with over the past 5 years this growing from strength to strength and in particular the last two years really progressing as the market has changed and our reputation building in this field. I am always proud to say that a lot of our business comes through referral, you cannot beat word of mouth. Do you have any specific goals you would like the company to achieve over the coming years? Social media is an area that all businesses have to embrace which is particularly difficult for a business which prefers good old fashioned communication. So our goal for the next 12 months is to progress this side of our marketing which will give greater exposure of our clients properties and also expand our company profile to people who may not have heard of us.

What makes Bournemouth such a great place for property in your opinion? The Bournemouth area is so vibrant and has such a diverse housing stock, everything from a studio flat to a sandbanks beach house and everything in between. This makes my job so interesting and especially with the varied client base too. However the best client for me is a local family or a first time buyer, it is always so satisfying helping people find their dream home, and doing what you can to make this possible for them. In comparison to your competitors, what makes Paris so great? We are a company that is not lead by targets, its all about service and going the extra mile. This means that we make decisions for the right reasons rather than to just earn an extra fee. Is there anything specific that sets you apart from the crowd? From a property sales perspective our fee of 0.85% plus vat. is saving home owners hundreds and thousands of pounds. Sometimes clients don’t realise exactly how much their bill to their estate agent adds up to. Through us you get a premium service, no corners are cut, and we offer full and comprehensive marketing, excellent customer service and that bit extra that only our clients would be able to put their finger on.

Do you have any plans to grow the business further? Yes growth is definitely on the cards but it is vital that when a business expands that they maintain the service and core values that made them successful originally. 2015 will be an exciting year for us.

Do you think that being a family led business plays to any advantage in the business? People like to know who they are dealing, I feel it makes a business more approachable and clients always feel assured when they are dealing with a proprietor directly. We get a lot of feedback from clients that they find the larger corporate agencies less personable and that they feel more like a number than a person. Also I believe the team in the office benefits from having a hands on proprietor.

Will you ever venture out of Bournemouth? If so/not why? On a personal level Bournemouth has always been my home and an area that I know best so I cannot see this changing. So for this reason the business will always be firmly routed in the area. However the company has in recent times sold a property in London which was an enjoyable experience.

What type of client do you tend to attract if any? If so, is there a reason perhaps behind why you tend to attract such customers? We are a traditional company with old fashioned core values and we tend to attract clients of the same nature. Estate agents do tend to have a certain image that I believe we don’t follow and I know our clients value us for that reason.

Est.1996


FOXES OPEN A NEW SALES DEPARTMENT Foxes are delighted to announce the opening of their new sales department, operating from the company’s landmark office, Pars House on Poole Hill in Bournemouth town centre. The new department will strongly complement the company’s well-established property management and lettings departments, and means Foxes can deal with all aspects of residential property under one roof. The newly formed sales department is headed by highly experienced agent Nick Richards, who joins Foxes from a successful period with House & Son, and will be engaged in selling properties across the

Bournemouth and Poole area. Nick has nearly a decade of experience in the local market, across all types of property including family homes, investment properties and second homes. To celebrate the launch of the new sales department, Foxes are offering vendors the opportunity to sell their property for a fee of just 1% with no VAT payable, for a limited time period only. Sales manager Nick Richards advises that “many other local agents are charging at least 1.5% plus VAT, so we can potentially save sellers over 40% on their agency fees. However, it’s not all about a cheap fee; we want people to come

for the fee but stay for the service we offer and the results we produce.” On the first and second floor of Pars House, the thriving property management department currently manages several thousand units across the south, plus several hundred tenanted properties are looked after by the lettings department, making Foxes one of the largest agencies in the area. The company was established in 1996 but can trace its roots back to the property management department of the original Fox & Sons, founded in 1868. The distinctive Pars House is a listed building and was formerly home to renowned chemists Par & Co, who occupied the building for more than a century from the 1870s onwards. Although the building still retains its traditional appearance from the outside, internally the ground floor sales and lettings office has just been refurbished to complete the company’s fresh new look. Director Damon Robbins says that “the office refurbishment has given us a really bright and open space and lets us create a more relaxed seating area where clients can come in and browse properties with us in comfort whilst enjoying a coffee.” To find out more about the services Foxes can offer, and to book a free, no obligation appraisal of your property, please contact Nick Richards on 01202 299600 or e-mail nick.richards@foxes.co.uk or why not pop into the office to discuss your requirements and check out the new look office.


I’m very proud that Dunkley Tiles and Bathrooms is a family business. It sets us apart.

DUNKLEY TILES AND BATHROOMS SPLASHES OUT FOR 40TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS have been held for the 40th anniversary of Dunkley Tiles and Bathrooms in Bournemouth. The family owned business, which employs 12 people and has a £1.5 million turnover, marked the occasion with a staff meal. Based in Winton, the company was founded by Anthony and Carol Dunkley in 1974. Their son, Scott, now runs the business. Originally selling tiles and associated products, the company diversified into bathrooms two years ago and now serves the retail, trade and commercial markets. About 85 per cent of the tiles it sells are imported.

Scott, who officially joined the business in 1994 at the age of 18, said: “We’re proud to be celebrating our 40th anniversary after what has been a tough five years.

The company’s new commercial arm is particularly targeting its products and services at architects, interior designers, shopfitters, building surveyors and developers.

“We’ve faced some major challenges but we’ve emerged on the other side with a good strong team and I’m very confident about the future.”

Scott said: “I’m very proud that Dunkley Tiles and Bathrooms is a family business. It sets us apart.

Future plans include the opening of a fifth showroom - Studio 410 - featuring tiles and natural stone at its Kemp Road site as well as a public open day in March 2015.

“We were a founder member of the Family Business Club, run by our accountants Princecroft Willis. It’s a fantastic forum to meet other family businesses in an informal setting and share experiences. “David Watton, a Director at Princecroft Willis, has been our accountant since 1989 and I have total trust in him. There used to be two people a business owner would call - the bank manager and the accountant. For me, it’s now just the accountant. David’s advice is invaluable.”

Business Profile Kevin Perris

Land & Plot Finder Kevin Perris of Land & Plot Finder’s Acquisitions department is pleased to report some positive changes in the planning and development landscape which will have a positive effect on the local housing market. With over 30 years experience in property related businesses Kevin heads up our team of planning experts who can quickly identify the potential and suitability of buildings or land for redevelopment. This recent conversation with a Ferndown resident should illustrate the changes that have taken place: I currently own a 5 bedroom detached house in Ferndown which sits on an extremely large corner plot. I have had a few approaches from builders and developers over the last couple of months who have expressed an interest in purchasing a portion of my garden for redevelopment. Each time this has happened I have received quite disappointing offers. The main reason that potential buyers are coming up with low offers is due to the local authority demanding significant payments for such things as parks, highways, and social housing (Section 106 agreements and social housing levies) I understand that there have been some recent changes that have been introduced by the government relating to these charges, can you indicate how that will help with the value of my land. Yes the Government have just introduced a threshold of 10 new units or 1,000 Sqm of habitable accommodation before any of these charges will now apply. This is very good news for people in your situation with

small scale developments as it will mean that you will see a significant improvement in your land value. Under the old policy introduced by East Dorset District Council for example, the Authority would have required a Social Housing contribution calculated at £350 per Sqm of any resulting new building. Therefore a typical 100 Sqm, 2 bedroomed Bungalow would have attracted a payment of £35,000. Other section 106 charges would most likely take this figure over £40,000. It’s not surprising then that developers chose either not to build in the area at all or do so only at the expense of the land owner. Of course in light of the recent announcement by the Chancellor on Stamp Duty changes there will be additional savings on purchase costs for developers, which will again lower their costs and enable them to be more generous when making offers.

Mr & Mrs Williams, Wimborne: We are both retired and live in a three bedroom bungalow. Our garden is approximately

150ft long and to be honest we only use a small part of it closest to the property. We would be happy to sell some of the garden for re-development. How do you work out what the land is worth? This is a scenario that we see often at LPF. First of all we look at local planning policies to ascertain whether planning permission is likely to be granted on the severed land. Next we would look at the architectural issues and establish what kind of property or properties could realistically be accommodated on the site. From this we work out the gross development value of the scheme. After deducting the various costs to plan and build the units we arrive at a land value.

Okay now we know the value of the land how do we go about selling it? The easiest method of sale would be to find a suitable purchaser on a Subject to Planning basis which would put you, the land owner at no financial risk. This is because the purchaser would undertake a planning application at their cost and risk. LPF have a data base of individuals and development companies that have a proven track record, the required planning expertise and crucially sufficient funding in place. We would match your land to the most appropriate purchasers and invite them to make an offer. Once a sale is agreed we would monitor progress right through until legal completion.

“We asked Land & Plot Finder to come and look at our property which had a large under used rear garden. They were able to quickly identify the development potential and guide us through the planning process. We subsequently sold a portion of our garden which enabled us to pay off our mortgage early and carry out some improvements to our house” Mr & Mrs Brookes, Ringwood

“My family owned two bungalows which we thought might offer some scope for re-development. We were listening to a local radio station and heard Land & Plot Finders advertisement in which they mentioned an urgent need for building land. I met one of their team shortly afterwards, and following their assessment they introduced us to a number of Development Companies, one of which agreed to buy both properties at a figure which was much higher than the normal residential value”

“I jointly owned a business which operated out of a large warehouse that was falling into disrepair. Due to economic difficulties and a down turn in orders we decided to close down. This left us with a redundant building to sell, so we called in Land & Plot Finder who provided us with a comprehensive planning and marketing strategy. Approximately 7 months later the building was sold and I was able to retire early on my share of the proceeds” Mr Sainsbury, Bournemouth

History

Excellent Values

Coleman was established in 1928 with roots stretching back to 1903. It was always a family business and was set up by Bournemouth business man, Teddy Coleman, and traded under the name of Coleman & Son.

Reflecting on his time with Coleman Peter enthuses, “It has always been important to us to retain, enhance and build on the company’s excellent values. We pride ourselves on our fairness and being supportive to customers who take out contracts of insurance.

Coleman was bought out by shareholders in 1986 and at that time had just 6 members of staff. Nearly 30 years on the company boasts a workforce of some 96 members of staff.

We offer valued advice and support customers through their claims endeavouring to ensure that they are paid fairly, promptly, fully and quickly.

One of the new shareholders in 1986 was current Coleman Director, Peter Moody, who is one of Coleman’s longest standing members of staff.

Business Profile Adam Covell

ECA Architecture & Planning info@eca-p.com | 01202 675 152 | www.eca-p.com

Who are you ECA is a combined architecture and town planning practice. Many architects know a thing or two about town planning; many town-planning consultants also work with architects. We take a design-led approach developed in tandem with a viable planning strategy. What does that mean? We are driven by design from start to finish. We are near-obsessional about the quality and standard of architecture and design both aesthetically and functionally. We believe that above all else the quality of design i.e. use of materials, proportions and scale are far more important than the fixation with traditional or modern styles of building. So What does this mean to someone building a house say? It means we do not design something that will appease the planners and be a pastiche copy of what exists. In architecture every site is different and every building should be designed to closely reflect the client’s and designers aspirations and to marry that as far as possible with policy considerations. Being a combined practice means the planners in our team can review the designs as they evolve and advise on policy and design issues. What effect does that have on practical considerations like time and cost? An integrated service saves time and costs compared to using two separate offices. We are aware that clients often need to work on tight budgets and timelines. We take great pains to approach schemes so that they can be built to a cost plan and in a reasonable timeframe. We are professionally required to keep the bigger picture in mind. Whilst we are not engineers or quantity surveyors, we aim to create beautifully designed and highly functional buildings, on time and on budget.

Shortlisted for RIBA south west building of the year. So where does this approach come from then? Two partners set up ECA in 2003. The practice evolved from a core of teachers and practitioners involved in most of the architecture schools in central London as well as two regeneration/planning experts. In 2006 the practice opened a second office in the Middle East working on masterplans and residential towers in that region. In 2009 we opened a new office in Dorset. ECA has always been driven by an academic background in design thinking and integrated approach to planning/regeneration. To this end we have a sister practice called ECA Community Interest Company. This assists local private and public sector bodies in developing neighbourhood plans and community led buildings. We train local people in the fields of planning and community consultation and have worked on some really interesting projects locally and nationally on this basis. We are driven not just by good building design but by the whole urban setting - improving the fabric of the built environment itself: designing Real Places for Real People. So how does Poole measure up to this? Poole is a place of great opportunity with a unique historic core and vibrant community although the centre feels somewhat stuck at the moment. Beguiling beauty surrounds the urban conurbation. The town itself is somewhat strangled by its huge roads and 60’s buildings. It can change though and we hope that through things like the Poole Quays Forum Neighbourhood Plan, it will. So what are you working on now? We are building a boathouse and kayak training centre at Hamworthy Lake pier. We are also pleased to be working for a Dorset private School on a long-term strategic development framework: the site presents a number of challenges in terms of its location in the green belt and its wealth of historic buildings. We have a planning application that we have secured an agreement in principle for the remodelling and conversion of an office building to 26 large residential apartments in Sunbury, London. We have recently received planning permission for a contemporary development of flats on a prominent site in Boscombe adjoining the Royal Arcade. We are negotiating approval

for a modest contemporary extension to a listed building in central Bournemouth. This project has some synergy with our project at Knappings Barn in Cheltenham (shortlisted for RIBA Building of the year 2014). The architecture team are working on a collection of high quality residential high-rise buildings in south, west and central London. Locally we are working on a couple of one-off houses in Parkstone and Canford cliffs. One of these, on St Osmond’s road, recently obtained planning permission and we shall be building next year. It is a 3500 sqft scheme on the site of a small bungalow. We are very pleased to be starting work on a passivehouse scheme in north/west Dorset. The site is on the edge of a beautiful Dorset village and is owned by two very committed clients. Clients occasionally come to us asking for highly sustainable schemes and here, we are glad to say they have instructed us to go for full certification. This may be the first one off, accredited passive house in Dorset !

What projects would you like to work on? We always like one off houses because they are a great design opportunity. We love to work on town centre sites. Poole and Bournemouth have a scarcity of good public spaces and high quality new buildings. There are numerous first class projects being delivered in places like Portsmouth, Bristol and Plymouth… Poole deserves and can achieve so much but it is only at the beginning of this process.

Business ProďŹ le Alistair Brown Brown & Kay How did Brown & Kay first begin? We launched our first office in Poole in 2006 How have you seen the company develop over the years? We have developed a strong presence in Poole and surrounding areas quickly gaining an excellent reputation for outstanding customer service and now with the opening of our second office in Westbourne we have seen the company expand and go from strength to strength. Our lettings team have grown the business with phenomenal success now managing a large amount of properties across the county. How do you see the company growing? Moving forward into 2015 we are going to further increase our market share in Westbourne from our new office and give our clients in Westbourne the opportunity to experience a personalised marketing experience that clients in Poole have had for some time, making us stand out from the many other agents in the area. From our Poole office we will continue to build the business in both residential and lettings Do you have any specific goals you would like to see the business achieve? Really as above. What makes Bournemouth such a great place for property? With its blue flag award winning beaches and eclectic areas such as Westbourne and the bustling Poole Quay and Old town it is very popular amongst those people looking for somewhere to retire to and enjoy retirement. It is also popular with people looking for a second home we have seen a big increase in clients looking for properties just for weekends and short breaks many to escape the hustle and bustle of London. Bournemouth is such a diverse area with so

much to offer for young and old. Would you ever expand further afield into different areas? We will always look at other opportunities to expand as they come forward to us. Do you have a specific clientele if any at all? We are always happy to help everyone. What makes your business unique in comparison to your competitors? At Brown & Kay we pride ourselves on employing staff who all live in the immediate area giving them an exceptional degree of knowledge of the area, all our staff are friendly and personable who will always happily take the time to identify what our clients needs are as no two house sales are the same and as such the marketing

of each home is tailored to meet those individual needs. The directors both come from a corporate estate agency background with over 50 years experience between them. What has been your greatest achievement to date? Starting the business in 2006 and seeing it grow to being one of the market leaders in Poole and then in 2014 opening the second office in Westbourne which has seen an excellent first year of business.

Business Profile Fiona Holloway Tiptop Copy

When were you established? I set up in March 2011 after four days of temporary blindness due to an eye operation. Being firmly locked in darkness did wonders for my imagination and drive!

whilst eating a massive ham sandwich. Why? Because I love trekking, love heights, love history and love sandwiches. Failing that, I’d be quite happy perched on top of Hengistbury Head. I adore our coastline!

What was your first job? After university, I managed to bag myself a position at JK Rowling’s literary agent, Christopher Little. Surrounded by beautiful books, open fires and Persian rugs, I was the receptionist / manuscript reader / fan mail sorter outer. Pretty sure I only got the job because I wore a cool dress to the interview and said I like champagne.

What is your favourite local Haunt? At the moment, it has to be Jenkins in Penn Hill. They make a mean margarita and their back bar is packed with quirky spirits.

MY DAY A typical day in my life would be:

What has been your best and worst moment in business? The best moment has to be securing Virgin Media’s in-house magazine. Luckily, I’ve evaded worst moments so far. But I’ve probably spoken too soon… What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? Understand your target market like the back of your hand and make sure you speak directly to them in a consistent, branded voice. If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? At the summit of Huayna Picchu in Peru, looking down at the Lost City of the Inca

What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? Aside from an understanding partner, being superhuman at spotting opportunities and supersonic at going after them. What drives you to succeed? I’ve always thought it doesn’t matter what you do, you should strive to be the best at it. Whether that’s making coffee, cleaning toilets or running the country. If I’m going to be a copywriter, I want to be blimin’ good at it. That’s probably my strongest motivation. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I’ll hopefully be running an incredibly successful copywriting business, have a family and be a master at the work-life balance. Oh, and I’ll have a house on the beach, of course.

• Hitting the snooze button at least twice

• Lunch without the break

• Consuming first breakfast of tea and biscuits

• More copywriting, editing, proofreading and general wordiness

• Cycling to work

• Answering emails and getting annoyed at spam

• Once home, I’ll walk the dog and cook up a hearty dinner whilst my boyfriend and I moan/rejoice about our day…

• Spending the rest of the day writing client copy, punctuated by more emails, phone calls, meetings and watercooler moments

paulwatts They are the real estate experts in this area of Bournemouth and this really showed in the way the sale was handled and the type of potential buyers who were shown around the property.

We have received a first class service, great local knowledge and always dealt with in a friendly, professional manner.

paulwatts

Paul Watts are the utmost professionals, they work as a team and are always positive.

The company was friendly and down to earth but provided a top quality service even visiting the empty property on numerous occasions to ensure the security was not breached.

The whole team were first class and very helpful. Personal service was their hallmark.

They were very understanding when the transaction hit a rather large stumbling block, but with their help everything was resolved.

paulwatts Understood our property and saw its attractions, whereas agents from larger organisations were far more corporate and far less engaging. They are the real estate experts in this area of Bournemouth and this really showed in the way the sale was handled and the type of potential buyers who were shown around the property.

The photographs taken of our property were of the highest order and showed great creative flair. The sales document was professional and accurate with concise clear copy and neatly laid out.

I dealt with a junior member of the sales team but was very comfortable with the service provided and was able to discuss things very easily.

Business Profile Brett Sanftleben & Piotr Pstrus

Independent Property Management Group (IPMG) On a Wednesday afternoon House caught up with Piotr and Brett to talk about their new approach to property management. Where did the idea for the business come from? We’ve been looking after rental properties for a number of years. The more private landlords we spoke to, the more we realised that there was a demand in the market for a slightly different type of property management service. Together we discussed the idea of becoming Independent Property Managers, developed a business plan, and slowly started working on setting-up the business, while continuing with our full-time careers. What was the reason behind starting up a property group that combines the services of a letting agent and the skills of a property maintenance company? We know that there are a number of local letting agents that look after rental properties on behalf of private landlords and do a good job. But we have found that many landlords are looking for something more comprehensive, more personal and more flexible, something that really does allow them to enjoy the income on an investment property without any of the hassle that goes with managing it. How do you see IPMG growing in the next two years? The priority for us right now is to grow our management portfolio. As a partnership there is a limit to the amount of properties we can manage, and we are well on our way to this. We will certainly gain more experience during this process, and will no doubt learn a lot more about being Independent Property Managers. Although we have many ideas about how to develop the business in the future, our first couple of years will be dedicated to doing a really great job for our clients. In comparison to your competitors, what makes IPMG different? I think the biggest difference in using us is that we really do take care of everything. For one simple

monthly fee we take care of essential maintenance, alongside the marketing and management, and we don’t charge extra for additional services such as inventories, inspections or checkout. We’ll even arrange and supervise any repairs, refurbishments or specialist installations on behalf of our clients, meaning that we really do provide a total property management solution. On top of this, we’re not restricted to normal office hours, and we will meet with clients, respond to tenants and personally attend properties at all times of the day (and night sometimes).

I think the biggest difference in using us is that we really do take care of everything. Why should customers opt to do business with yourself? We are offering a very compelling alternative to a traditional letting agent giving our clients everything they need for one simple monthly fee with no hidden costs. Once we take over, our client’s phone will stop ringing. We take all of the tenants calls, texts and emails, at most times of the day. We know that every landlord is different and our clients expect flexibility. So with every new client we meet face-to-face, view their property, discuss their requirements and make sure that we enter in to a management agreement that provides them with exactly what they are looking for. We enjoy very friendly relationships with all of our clients and will update them as frequently as required but day-to-day we take care of everything for them. In fact, in many cases, we’ve become so trusted that we often take on all sorts of additional tasks to help them out! The way we operate works really well for our existing clients, especially those who live overseas or are not local to the area, and we are certain that there are many more landlords out there who are looking for a service like ours.

Independent Property Management Group The Studio, 9 St Winifred’s Road, Bournemouth, BH2 6NY 01202 944558 | www.ipmg.org.uk | info@ipmg.org.uk facebook.com/independentpropertymanagementgroup

What is the most frequent question asked by your clients? How do you address this? Including maintenance in the management fee is a big benefit for our landlords, as contractor callout charges and invoices for even small jobs can quickly add up to a lot of money. We’ve had to be really careful to define what is included though and always use the term ‘essential maintenance’ so that we can be quite specific. Landlords are very savvy so our property management agreements have to be very clear! But, so far, all of clients have understood the spirit of this part of our service and we have very few issues. How would you describe your experience of starting your own business? It’s been great, but there’s much more to do than you realise. Our business didn’t have huge start-up costs - it’s just the two of us and we don’t need to fund expensive premises, pay staff, or find big advertising budgets - but the time it has taken to get completely organised as a modern efficient business has been considerable. We’re committed to providing the best possible service to our clients though, so we didn’t want to cut any corners and have made sure we are very well set-up. And we’re working every day to do better. Is running your own business something you have always wanted to achieve? Absolutely! There is a big sense of achievement to setting up your own business. You get control over so much detail and, ultimately, it’s us that benefits from the long hours and hard work we put in. It’s very satisfying and something we’ve wanted for a long time. What is your most notable achievement to date? I think when you know how much hard work it takes, you feel proud of even the smallest details. What motivates you? We’re motivated by many things. Building a better business, being different and being successful. The biggest buzz though comes from feedback – happy clients and happy tenants.

Business Profile Matthew Hargrove

Meridian Estate & Letting Agents Matthew is the newest arrival within the Meridian team, bringing with him a wealth of Independent and Corporate experience. Having over 10 years experience within the property industry, Matthew is fully adept in all things property. He prides himself on the service that he delivers for his clients and ensuring that vendors and purchasers alike are part of a smooth process. Matthew commented “The market for 2015 is setting out to be another strong year, property prices have continued to increase especially in the South, due to high demand. Although the mortgage market has changed and may continue to evolve through 2015, I do not feel that this will hamper the property market as it did in the early part of 2014 when the Mortgage Market Review was introduced. The Bournemouth area is ever popular as it offers purchasers and investors plenty of choice and of course being close to Bournemouth Beach is a fantastic bonus.” How did Meridian first begin? Founded in the Spring of 2010 in a time of financial uncertainty and a struggling property market Meridian Estate & Letting Agents have grown from strength to strength with a vision to provide exceptional customer service and unrivalled sales skills. Since opening we have become the market leaders in our areas and in recent years have invested heavily into our marketing techniques enabling us to provide our clients with the best possible advertising for their properties How have you seen the company develop over the years? Meridian in previous years has predominately been associated as a lettings brand, over the last couple of years sales has become a bigger factor in the business as an overall to the point now where alongside Lettings; sales is now a huge driver for the business and something which we are immensely proud of.

To not only compete but lead in these areas is vital to running and establishing a successful brand and business in such a competitive market place. How do you see the company growing? We have already increased our sales teams across both offices, through internal promotion and external recruitment. We are currently in midst of strengthening our Lettings business in terms of staff numbers to help achieve our goals for 2015 and indeed maintain our high service standards to our clients. Do you have any specific goals you would like to see the business achieve? Our key focus for 2015 is to simply build and the foundations of 2014. My office in Charminster is perfectly placed to push on in 2015, by continuing on the path we have set ourselves. We will deliver on our promises to our clients, we will offer the

My day starts the same way every morning, with a cup of tea! From here,Ii spend time with all my staff looking at what we achieved so far, what we are going to achieve and how we are going to do it. We deliver feedback to our vendors and update them on how their property is performing against its competition. My team will then go out and conduct their appointments for the day, before returning to the office to follow up on any outstanding business. I more often than not spend my day calling solicitors, buyers and sellers and ensuring that the sales we have agreed get through to exchange and completion, after all this is usually the most frustrating part of the sales process. This is an area that I have to say, we at Meridian are very pro-active and this results in plenty of happy clients.

strongest marketing packages for our vendors and landlords as well as having a team of people that have an in depth knowledge of Bournemouth and the property market itself. What makes Bournemouth such a great place for property? Bournemouth offers the best of best worlds, it has a very strong rental market for those looking to invest. Or for those looking to set up home, a great mix of property offers the home owner a huge selection. The fact Bournemouth has an award winning beach, the beautiful New Forest and great access for the more serious shopper to London, what else do you need. Do you have a specific clientele if any at all? Our clientele profile is very broad. Being based in Charminster we have are able to deal with investors, families and the luxury properties that are available around the Queens Park areas. What makes your business unique in comparison to your competitors? My team and I pride ourselves and our local knowledge and our focus on the doing what is right for our clients. We work for our clients to achieve the best figure possible based on current market conditions, we take the time to spend time with our clients and assist/advise on how best to market a property. Unlike others, our sole aim is to deliver on what we promise.

Mike has worked within the Bournemouth area for 8 years and prides himself on his work ethic. Welcome to the Meridian Mike!!

What our customers say about us... Hi Matt, I just wanted to thank you and personally recognise your excellent customer service through email. You show exemplary communication skills and have filled my partner and I with hope in the purchase of our first home. This has been a terrible journey not only for us but also the vendor. You supported both parties with daily updates, advice and an ear to listen to our frustration. What makes you stand out is you didn’t have to support us in the way you did, as really we are only buying the property not selling it through you, but you did! You never failed on any promise and always ensured you called back on any request I had. I can’t thank you enough!

Our experience with our solicitors hasn’t been great, you took my feedback and spoke to a point of contact you have there to ensure they work on their communication skills. You should be recognised for your hard work, passion and customer service. I can only imagine your team are blessed to have you as their manager. Again thank you so much. We will certainly be coming back to Meridian and recommending friends/family!

ADVICE

THE POWER OF VIDEO MARKETING With HOUSE Magazine now producing promotional films for our clients we talk to our very own film maker Steve about why film is invaluable when promoting your brand.

How many times did you watch a video this week? Was it a video forwarded by a colleague, or a clip a friend shared on facebook, or something daft or thought provoking that’s trending on reddit, Pinterest or YouTube? Then you already know about the power of video. Or perhaps you’re one of the very few who doesn’t regularly expose themselves to video marketing, whether it’s selfies with stars, how-to videos on the minute details of obscure hobbies, or slick trailers for new products and services. If so you are in the minority.

In addition, we have a natural tendency to respond to motion – our innate sense of self-preservation and curiosity causes us to follow any moving object with our eyes, which causes the brain to investigate the movement. As a result, movement on a screen doubles the level of attention that we give to it.

The reach and appeal of video marketing is undoubted. 46% of people surveyed said they’d be more likely to ask for information about products or services after seeing them in online videos. And that’s not just a survey statistic. The average internet user spends 88% more time on websites that feature videos. Sites with video gain two to three times more monthly visitors.

Search engines too, are ‘hardwired’, through the algorithms that govern their rankings, to respond to video. Having video on the landing page of your website can double its chances of appearing on the first page of Google and video anywhere on your website can increase search engine traffic by 150%.

There are two this powerful own psychology the other is the engines operate.

reasons for effect: our is one and way search

Humans are hard-wired to respond to faces and movement. In 1992 scientists discovered the fusiform face area (FFA) which is part of the occipital lobe of the brain dedicated to recognising faces. As a result our natural instincts to look at, and respond to, faces can be triggered by seeing people in videos – our interest is engaged and we react positively to the visual stimulus.

So now you know the cold, hard facts about video marketing. But there’s another reason that it works.

For small to medium sized businesses, video is the swiftest and surest way to become recognised. Video marketing is effective because it has passion and heart, which allows any business no matter how niche, quirky or complex to express itself to customers. A one-woman outfit selling personalised iPod covers, five guys creating financial solutions, or a firm of thirty people making sofa cushions, are all just as likely to reach a huge audience as the giants of video like Apple and Virgin. All it takes is creativity, flair and a good product to bring to market. There are two things about video marketing that might surprise you. The first is the cost – high calibre video marketing is now cost effective for even the smallest enterprise. The second is that, unlike other publicity systems, video marketing has its own inbuilt distribution mechanism – with the advent of YouTube and other sharing sites, video has already become the most shared marketing method, ever.

If you’re ready to bring the dynamic potential of video marketing to your business, or talk about any print advertising call us and to explore how we can help. Call our creative team on 01202 200930 to find out more.

Business Profile Steve Ballam Martin & Co How have you developed the business since taking over? Since taking over the business in Dec 2008 we have invested heavily in additional staff, IT, software etc which have contributed to the business more than doubling in size. Currently we are rolling out the introduction of sales due to strong demand from existing Landlords and clients. What are your plans for growth into 2015? Obviously we will never forget that our residential lettings and property management business is extremely important and we aim to grow this in 2015 as in every previous year. To enable this we are looking to recruit an additional negotiator in the New Year although finding the space for the desk will be interesting! Sales will be an important growth area in 2015 where we will be offering the traditional sales service, an ‘online’ fixed fee marketing service (although we will be offering the properties from a busy high street office) and a more specialised serviced aimed at Landlords buying and selling tenanted properties. What are your gowls for next year? Our key aims in 2015 are to offer ‘whole of market advice’ to our customers or clients whether they are buyers, sellers, tenants, landlords or investors and to naturally grow the business whilst offering the best service. Who are you main clients? Most of our current Landlords tend to be investors in it for the long term whilst the majority of tenants tend to be professionals and this is probably a reflection on the service we offer them. However the move into sales will mean we will have a broader cross section. What makes your agency unique. According to market data from ‘Sav-

vy Agent’, Rightmove and Zoopla we are Poole’s busiest lettings office (with everything catered for in house) and with the addition of the 3 types of sales service this makes us fairly unique. What’s been your best achievement in business? We have grown the business every year despite the recession and competitors springing up on a daily basis.

opportunity on offer and agreed to take over the Poole franchise in 2008. Why chose the property Industry? I have worked in many industries from estate agency to airlines, high street sales to building and then back to estate agency before lettings. So I guess without really thinking about it I enjoy the property industry.

What are you key aspirations To have happy clients, staff and bank manager! (My colleagues also want me to aspire to stop muttering to myself). What made you decide to take over Martin & Co I had been in customer service and sales roles and was looking for a business opportunity.

Business Profile Karl Girdler ONE UK How did One UK begin? ONE UK was established in May 2007 solely as a Business Telephones system provider. It soon became a provider of Business lines and Broadband and now has a fairly vast portfolio of products that really are an everyday need for Businesses small and large, from Structured Cabling, Wireless LAN, CCTV and Security as well as Superfast Broadband. Why the change of name? We felt that Callwayone was too isolated in its description of our Business, and wouldn’t really give our customers the message we want to deliver. We are ONE, we can provide all the vital infrastructure, hardware and Services for Local and National Businesses, hence the UK element to our name. Have you seen the company develop since beginning? For sure, as we took on new Technology which required specifically trained Engineers and we went through the process of learning the new Technology and marketing it, we saw a massive curve in terms of growth, to the point where we have had to move premises, employ more staff etc. Are there any specific goals or objectives you would like the company to achieve? Our goal is to always provide 100% customer satisfaction. We obviously want to continue to see the growth, but we are a Family run Business, we are here for the long term, if we can help local Businesses achieve their goals, affordably and with the correct advise, that’s what makes me tick. How do you see the company growing? We have some exciting projects coming up, unfortunately some I’m not allowed to disclose, but we are very proud and when we are in a position to tell our existing customers, we will do, as it will mutually benefit us all.

What has been your greatest achievement within your career to date? At the moment I would have to say it is owning my own Business and growing it to where it is now. When I look back at my early years, with no Qualifications other than what you walk away from School with at 16 years old, I started in a Freezing cold warehouse and have worked my way up through a couple of Businesses to where I am now, in a relatively short space of time. Have you always wanted to run your own company? Yes, without question, I’ve always had my way of doing things. When you get to a certain level in management you can have aid decisions for the owners, but ultimately the direction you want to take a Business is only really down to you when you own it. What drew you to set up a business in telecommunications? Telecommunications has been a big part of my working life, 10 years now in fact. It’s where I really learnt my trade, from sorting boxes in the warehouse, to providing Technical support to an army of Engineers across the UK, to eventually being Business Development Director and looking after some 200 UK wide Resellers before I started my own company. Have you always been interest in this business sector? It’s the nature of the beast that I previously worked for, all my time has been spent B2B, so it was just a natural development.

Business Profile Michael Newman Newmans

How did Newmans Start? My father Tony Newman left the RAF in 1948 having flown in Lancaster Bombers during the war. He then worked for two firms of Estate Agents in Bournemouth before starting a partnership in 1951 with Michael McDonnell. Following many successful years of trading as McDonnell & Newman my father’s partner retired and he then ran the business on his own until I joined him in the 1980’s. The firms name then changed to Antony Newman & Son and it stayed that way until last year when we carried out a full re-branding to ‘Newmans For Property’. Tony retired in 1990 and is now 89 years young. I am pleased to report that my mother and father are still enjoying retirement and have an interest in the housing market and the business. What was involved in the re-branding? There were so many changes it would be hard to list them all. Briefly starting with the new ‘logo’ our ‘For Sale Boards’ were completely re-designed. Our office was re-furbished, and new air conditioning was installed to make a visit to our office more comfortable for customers and clients. We had a brand new website built for us which we are very pleased with. We took the opportunity of creating new brochure style particulars with more photographs.

in demonstrating to clients that a small business has the expertise to see a project through to completion. In other words: clients know they will get a professional service. It would be beneficial if all Estate Agents were aligned with a professional body but at the moment it appears that anyone can practice if they wish. Why do you think your firm is so successful? I suppose that we must be doing something right! I know that we all work really hard and the team are enthusiastic and experienced. We produce top quality sales particulars with floor plans and give advice to both buyers and sellers throughout the sales process. We always provide regular feedback. Most of our business is from previous buyers who come back to us because of the service they have received as applicants. We regularly sell for property owners who brought from us 20 or 30 years ago. We have also had two independent reviews of our business and each time 100% of our clients would use us again or recommend us to friends and family. We are very proud of the excellent service that we provide. What have you got planned for 2015 We will have a really busy start to the New Year with a number of exciting new properties coming

on to the market. We will be taking a bungalow close to Wick Village to Auction in February and we are expecting considerable interest. We are offering a three bedroom house at Hengistbury Head which will be sold by ‘Informal Tender’ on the 23 January 2015. We have also been instructed to sell a fabulous four bedroom detached property with river frontage in Christchurch. The first viewings will be at an ‘Open Day’ on Saturday 17 January 2015. Will the new Stamp Duty help the market? Yes I believe that buyers will be encouraged by the new rates and for a purchase up to £925,000 there will be savings compared to the old scheme. It must be good news for Homebuyers in our area. For example a purchase at £300,000 will attract stamp duty of £5,000. Previously it would have been £9,000, giving a saving of £4,000.

You are a qualified Chartered Surveyor, how does this help? Being a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors has been a huge benefit to my firm. When we compete with other companies for business the RICS credentials have been essential time and time again

REFORMED PLASTIC REFLECTS ON SUCESSES At Reformed Plastics we have had a brilliant year and have taken some time to reflect on past projects and the feedback we have received.

Adrian Link Kent (May’ 2007) “ I hope you are all doing well. I saw your name mentioned in the Miniature railway magazine and wondered how you where getting on, and then your letter arrived... The sleepers that I bought from you, I’m not sure how many years ago, are doing brilliantly. Absolutely no problems with them. They hold the track very well and with PNP chairs make installation easy and look good. I have recommended you to a few people, not only for the sleepers but for fence posts as well. I’m still laying track and the pile of sleepers is getting smaller so one day I may have to come back for more. I’ve attached three pictures and I am happy for you to use them in any marketing. Good luck, Regards” - October 2013

Tracey Farwell Bournemouth (February 2014) “Here is Daisy enjoying her Reformed Plastics bench in the sunshine! Thank you so much x” - February 2014

Margaret Reynolds Keith, Scotland (November 2010) “My apologies that it’s taken me so long to do this, but I just finished the first coat on the gym before the October holidays! I’ve not completed the second coat yet, so the whole thing will look even more fabulous when it’s actually finished! I’m afraid the weather really caught up with me this year - it’s been pretty poor :( However, I love my gym, the spa and the Decking. My favourite part is the decking’s lack of maintenance I must admit. That’s almost a full year we’ve had it now and I can’t tell you how happy I am with the decking! I’m not sure I have taken the photos with the correct resolution and anyway, if you do want to use the images anywhere, it’ll probably be best to wait until the gym’s had a second coat, which will probably be Spring next year now. If you’re ever up this neck of the woods and want to take some photos, just let me know, as I’m Sooooo happy with the product you have. Hope you like the finished product - please let me know what you think! Best regards” - November 2011

“Delighted with the product, saves HOURS in maintenance! Have recommended product to many friends. My joiner who installed the Decking now recommends it to his customers. Sent images of the finished decking previously as was so happy!” - November 2013

Amanda Agar Staffordshire (April 2014) “I just wanted to say Thank you for all your help over the past few months regarding my nephews memorial Bench. The installation went ahead as planned on the 12th April, and we are all very happy with the end result. I am more than happy for you to add my comments to your testimonials page. Your professionalism and understanding over the past few months is greatly appreciated. I have tried to email you a picture of the bench in situ but can’t seem to add the attachment. If you wish to see the pictures and read the story you can go to burtonmail.co.uk and search Jordan Agar and you should be able to see a slideshow and story of the memorial bench. Many Many Thanks “ - April 2014

WHAT CAN THE PLASTIC BE USED FOR ? The manufactured plastic has many practical and very useful properties. The main base of our products are in the form of planks and posts which can be used on their own for garden fences, both low for front gardens and high for side and back fences for instance, along road sides and around fields and paddocks just to name a few. It is also possible to produce a number of other products out of our plastic, such as picnic tables. These would vary in size, suitable for adults and children. Park benches, outdoor tables, square or rectangular plant boxes, decking and seating... the list is endless.

FINANCIAL BENEFITS Achieving value for money is a key driver for any purchasing decision. Although some recycled products have greater up-front cost, their longevity and durability make them a more costeffective option over the long term.

WHY ARE RECYCLED PLASTIC PRODUCTS DIFFERENT? Plastic lumber is the perfect alternative to anything that has ever needed maintaining. Plastic lumber can be cut with a regular saw, drilled, nailed or screwed into and routed as easily as wood.

• Resistant to extreme weather • Will not rot, split or splinter • Will not need painting or staining • Is wear resistant • Resistant to vandalism • Resistant to salt water • Resistant to chemicals • Resistant to insects and bacteria • Non-slip decking • Maintenance free • Lasts for over 50 years

VITAL STATISTICS

A typical day in my life would be:

Born: Birmingham 1969 Children: One 16 year old sporty son Marital Status: Married to Lou since 1995 but met in 1989 School: Corfe Hills, Poole College Car: Landrover Discovery but would like another Triumph Favourite Film: To many good films but do like Star Wars still remember seeing the original in I think 1977 Party Trick: Leaving a party early when Ive had to much to drink. In other words ‘wheres Leigh gone’ does not happen so much these days !! Worst Habit: My wife said where shall I start. What’s on your iPod: Sorry Im an Android boy and still like my cds Favourite Gadget: My mechanics tool box or my mechanics hammer. It seams to fix most things. Im into cars. Last Holiday: Spain Most embarrassing moment: Have had a few but all alcohol orientated.

Up at 6.00 – 6.30 my wife starts at 7.30 so she tends to be the alarm clock Cup of tea or maybe two, check emails, check weather forecast and review diary. 8.00am make sure my 16 year old son is off to sixth form. My days will then consist of either on site work probably 90% of my time or 10% in the office on paperwork. However the paperwork side is increasing.

Business Profile Georgina Hurcombe LoveLove Films When were you established? 2010 What was your first job? Coordinator for Gulf News in the UAE What drives you to succeed? I think success comes naturally with enjoying what you do and being passionate about the projects you produce. What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? Someone who knows how to assemble a great team behind them.

Another great moment was seeing the business’ first TV commercial air– It now seems like the norm (we have delivered over 40 this year) but I can remember it being an exhilarating moment. Also, winning Dorset Businesswoman of the Year at the Dorset Business Awards was incredible. Worst moments: Was losing my one of my top animators to a job in London. It didn’t last long though; he missed us and came back after 2 weeks. Ha! So yes can his return be a top moment too?

What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? If you’re not passionate about what you’re doing, don’t do it!

If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? Dorset. I’ve lived in other countries in the world, and cities in the UK, and I just love it here. We have beautiful beaches, the New Forest’s on our doorstep and there is so much great talent coming out of the universities.

What has been your best and worst moment in business? I think there have been a lot of highs for LoveLove Films - I guess my best moments were winning high profile musicians like Joss Stone. We had pitched quite a few concepts to her management in the USA and when we received the call about going into production the whole team were beaming; that was a great day.

What are your favourite local haunts? When I’m not walking my dog on Bournemouth Beach or the New Forest - I love the Jazz Café in Sandbanks (great brunch.) I’m also a big fan of Blake’s Restaurant, Urban Beach and Herb House Spa in the New Forest (although I don’t get enough time to go.) I also like bobbing around in my sea Kayak in Poole Harbour.

MY DAY

A typical day in my life would be:

There is no typical day! Some days I’m up at 4am driving to a shoot or to meet clients; other days we’re set building; pitching; or going through concepts with our in-house animation team.

Business Profile Zoe Bradley

Outset Bournemouth Zoe Bradley is Programme Director for Outset Bournemouth. She hails from the Midlands but relocated to Poole with her family 4 years ago. She has had a diverse career within the training, enterprise and business start-up sectors. How did Outset Bournemouth begin? Outset Bournemouth, part of the YTKO Group, began in January 2014. Funding was secured to run the project from the European Regional Development Fund, Bournemouth Borough Council, Bournemouth 2026 and JP Morgan. We opened our Enterprise Hub in Southbourne in May 2014.

Why does Outset focus particularly on the BH1 – BH11 postcode area? Because of the funding from Bournemouth Borough Council in supporting Bournemouth residents. How do you see Outset Bournemouth growing? By expanding our geographical area to include Poole, Christchurch and the wider Dorset communities.

What sort of Clients do you tend to attract if there is a specific type? For example is it usually those in their late 20s, those who have families with their own businesses, those who chose not to go to university etc. We attract a wide variety of clients across all age groups, gender and experiences. The beauty of the programme is the diversity of people it supports in realising their dreams and potential of becoming self employed.

What is your background? I started my working life as a florist and opened my first business at the age of 20 having 2 flower shops in the Midlands. I then decided to change my career and move into training, working for a National Training Company for 11 years eventually becoming the National Business Development Manager. My husband and I then decided to set up our own training company

covering the East and West Midlands. We developed the business, opening 4 regional offices with over 60 staff. After this, I became the Commercial Manager for Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce with responsibility for 5 departments. Becoming self employed again, I developed and delivered a number of funded projects. I became Programme Director for Outset Bournemouth December 2013 and love every minute of it!!

How would you describe your experience of starting your business? Having started a few businesses, they have all had different challenges! Starting your own business can feel very lonely at times which is where a programme such as Outset can really help as you are amongst like minded people and a great support mechanisum. Also, having access to a wide range of expertise in areas where you do not have experience. I wish I’d had access to it in my past!

VITAL STATISTICS Zoe takes us through her vital statistics.

What motivates you? Supporting other people to achieve their aspirations and goals and see them reach fruition.

What is your most notable achievement to date? Turning a failing Enterprise Centre in the Midlands into a thriving, profitable and vibrant centre of the community and also winning the Regional Enterprise Award, all within a twelve month period!

Business Profile Rob and Jane Edwards Access Lifts Ltd

ACCESS Lifts Ltd of Dorset has just completed a unique project in central Wales. The clients, based in the heart of Wales, live in a property that was on a steep incline so required a lift which would enable them to get their groceries from their garage to their front door. Whilst visiting the Dorset coast on holiday, they spotted an advert for Access Lifts and contacted them immediately, whereupon Rob Edwards, Access’s MD arranged a site visit. Nestled deep in the Powys hills the house was located in a breath-taking part of the world, but was also very remote in a picturesque – but mountainous area! Never phased by such things, Rob gave the best solution to his clients who decided on a bespoke Italian glass lift. Equipped with the latest technology, this lift provided everything they needed, giving them the access they required with the most amazing views when travelling in it. Rob designed the concept and planned the bottom of the lift entrance from the garage. The glass shaft went up to the front door level via

the garage roof to carefully meet with a specially designed level walkway from the front of the house. Meetings then took place between the local builder, Rob and the clients to agree the materials to be used and how they would achieve this feat of engineering and to ensure the job was aesthetically pleasing and blended sympathetically with the beautiful surroundings Rob Edwards said: “The whole project took two weeks from start to finish and although the location was very isolated, the clients were a dream to work with. They were very entertaining and it was a great job to do. Access Lifts pride themselves in sourcing their lifts from the best manufacturers world-wide to ensure that each lift installed is exactly right for its planned use and location. All their lifts are specially tailored to the required use and surroundings but for a full list of the type of lifts they can supply please visit their website at www.access-lifts.co.uk or telephone 0800 65 252 65. You can also follow them on Twitter.

Access Lifts Ltd was set up in November 2011 by Rob and Jane Edwards and is a lift installation company providing a bespoke service to home owners and commercial premises owners alike to enable access for all. They have several different lines of lift, being manufactured in globally. Rob has over 38 years’ experience in this area having always worked in the lift industry, Rob’s knowledge and experience is extensive and varied across the public and private sectors encompassing both residential (B2C) and commercial (B2B) premises They pride themselves in sourcing their lifts from the best manufacturers world-wide to ensure that each lift installed is exactly right for its planned use and location, whatever the purpose. They provide a bespoke service to all their customers and the majority of their business comes from word of mouth; from homeowners, professional practitioners and buildings and estate managers. They offer the widest possible selection of lifts, including platform lifts, short rise lifts, concealed lifts, incline wheelchair lifts, vertical lifts, step lifts, ramps, pool lifts and hoists, cupboard lifts, bariatric lifts, and lifts for boats and even pet lifts. The finish of their lifts can blend harmoniously with their surroundings if required and in many cases door or cupboard can discretely house a surprise inside! Due to their innovation and empathy with the surroundings, Access Lifts are currently working on such high profile projects such as the Palace of Westminster, The National Theatre and Canterbury Cathedral.

Rent On Time by Go Let Putting traditional rent guarantee to shame. Go Let are a well established, modern and innovative team, dealing exclusively with lettings and property management. Whether dealing with landlords, tenants, other professionals or anyone else, our aim is to change perceptions about the lettings industry, by exceeding expectations, taking responsibility and operating a clear and transparent business with a modern edge. Our services are unique in the local area and extremely good value. Our emphasis on customer services is established from the ground up, based on real respect and appreciation of our team members.

The number of tenants that had to be evicted by bailiffs hit a record high of 11,100 between July and September, according to the latest figures from the Ministry of Justice. The National Landlords Association puts the average claim for lost rent at £2,500, and the average cost of legal expenses relating to eviction at £1,200.

The problem

Go Let is the only local agent to offer Rent on Time, a type of insurance policy that guarantees you get paid regardless of any issues with tenants. It insures against late payment and non-payment of rent, as well as all other costs related to the eviction process.

Despite the best efforts to secure reliable tenants there can be times when tenants fall behind with their rent, whether this is down to a change in circumstances or willful nonpayment. If the situation carries on for any length of time, landlords can end up with mounting legal bills and the headache of repossession.

Georgina Kelley Director

How we can help Rent on Time is included within our services, at no extra cost and is different from any other rent guarantee products you may have heard of.

Typically, tenants tend not to pay towards the end of the tenancy. As traditional rent

Martina Mason-Green Director

guarantee policies cannot be renewed if there are outstanding arrears, this can leave the landlord unprotected for both the rent arrears and any legal costs relating to eviction. The Rent on Time product offered through Go Let is different in that it provides continuous cover, with no need for renewal and crucially, there is no possibility of being left unprotected. Rent payments are guaranteed for the full term, in advance, while the property is occupied and legal costs are covered for any type of eviction and type of tenant, be it students, professionals or benefits claimants. There is no excess and no waiting for payment.

Our services Rent on Time gives landlords peace of mind that their rent will be taken care of whatever happens. It comes as part of our full management and rent collection service at no extra cost. Our focus is on ensuring your property is let and re-let quickly, while always concentrating on a high quality of tenant and long term investment outlook. Our full management service draws upon our years of knowledge and experience of working in the local lettings business. “We have been extremely impressed with the helpful and proactive management of our property by Go Let and that they genuinely care about looking after us and our property. They take an imaginative approach to resolving difficult situations and the Rent on Time guarantee removes any worry about late or nonpayment of rent, as well as potential eviction costs. We would highly recommend their service and the Rent on Time Guarantee. 10 / 10!” - Scott & Laura – local landlord

DIARY OF A LETTING AGENT Sharon Canning Move on Rentals Have you heard? Christmas is on its way! The staff at Move On are all excited at getting the Christmas Decorations up. We always make this a fun event with mince pies and mulled wine and I traditionally give all the team an advent calendar which they normally place proudly on their desks.

The staff has even been known to dress up and give a festive cheer to our clients. As we draw an end to 2014 and reflect over the last 12 months, we have had a very busy year! Our sales department selling tenanted properties has seen treble the amount of sales this year from the previous year and the successful sales going through to completion remains at 95%, which is a fantastic result. On the lettings side we experienced our first gazumping in our 9 years of trading due to the demand of a certain type of a property. Court fees went up for tenant evictions from £175 to £280 with a reported 62% of evictions being rejected due to incorrect paperwork. The start of 2014 also saw one of the busiest starts from previous years for bailiffs. HMRC started coming down heavily on landlords who are not declaring their rental income, again it was reported that seven landlords were hit with a bill totalling £500k between them on undeclared rental income. And new rules were passed that mean the HMRC will be able to take money owed to them direct from your bank account. October saw the Immigration bill come into force and all letting agents must now belong to a redress scheme as well as displaying fees in all offices. The lettings world is changing each year and keeping up to date with

Margaret, 75, living with cancer My day didn’t start too well. Everything had got on top of me and I felt really low. When I called the Macmillan Support Line, I didn’t know where to start. But somehow they helped me find the words. Just talking honestly about how I felt was such a relief. Now I don't have to cope with the bad days on my own.

the legislations is almost a full time job and becoming increasingly more difficult for the private landlord to stay on top. 2015 I believe will see more changes, however, that is next year! For the moment, enjoy the rest of the year and from all of us at Move On we wish you a prosperous New Year.

Business Profile Alexandra Eaton (Chartered Marketer)

AE Marketing Solutions What was your first job? While I was at school I used to have a Saturday job in our local village sweetshop. This later progressed to Saturday and Sunday. My first proper job was working for National Wedding Photo Services, based in Epping in Essex.

What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? Do something you are passionate about and always believe in yourself!

If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? Here and now – because I love Christmas, so the nicest place to be at this time of year is in the Alpine bar in Bournemouth Square, catching up with friends – when I get the chance!

What is your favourite local Haunt? Summertime I love sitting on the terrace at The Harbour Heights Hotel or down at South Deep in Poole. Wintertime I like to catch up with friends at Hotel Du Vin in the’Snug’.

What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? Always be open to new ideas and be prepared to change your strategies.

What drives you to succeed? Having happy clients who recommend me to others, and seeing the results of our efforts.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Doing what I’m doing now – although hopefully with a little more help from an assistant or two.

MY DAY A typical day in my life would be:

• Tea in bed and checking my emails at the start of the day while listening to the news. Quick check on Facebook to see what is going on with my friends and colleagues • Shopping for food & drink for an event I am running at Twickenham later this week & a visit to the wholesalers for Christmas ‘hamper’ supplies • Social media updates for clients and sharing through other portals, such as Bournemouth Property Association where I sit on their committee and organize their events jointly with a colleague • Putting together a prototype hamper for one of my clients to enable their staff to replicate for another 50 of their clients • Ordering balloons for a thermal and acoustic client who is holding an event tomorrow to celebrate their new office move. Checking everything is on schedule. • Arranging to do a table plan early tomorrow morning for 150 people for a ball we are holding on Friday in Bournemouth, before heading to London and back

• Cooking Chilli con carne and getting the rest of the shopping for the Twickenham event for 50 people in 2 days time • Writing a press release for a lift company and sending to them for approval with the suggested photos I will use with their advert • Receiving the okay from a home improvement client regarding a draft press release and sending out their PR to various different printed media including specialist/industry publications and also posting to my online accounts • Chasing department heads for information to include on a new website we’re building for a property and construction consultancy client • Meeting with venue regarding Friday’s ball • Collecting pop up banners from a construction client who is sponsoring a drinks event this evening • Researching for more social media updates and posting to various clients’ accounts • Checking & responding to emails again. I try not to work past 9pm on the laptop (obviously this doesn’t include when I am attending or running any events in the evenings!)

Business Profile Allan Tofield

Richmond Home Improvement Co When were you established? Having worked in the industry for many years, I identified a gap in the market for a local company that would provide its customers with the best quality locally manufactured products and finest customer service. I finally took the plunge back in January 1999 when I formed Richmond Home Improvement Co and here we are – still here!

What is your favourite local Haunt? I am lucky to be able to visit many different places in the area as I tend to meet with business contacts and clients in varying locations - whether to discuss business, or as a social occasion. However, the Harbour Heights Hotel is somewhere hard to beat in the summer, sitting on the terrace looking out at the fantastic view.

MY DAY A typical day in my life would be:

6am Alarm goes off 7am In office at my desk 8am Networking breakfast meeting

What was your first job? I started with a paper round when I was still at school, followed by a petrol station attendant (in the days before self service). My first ‘proper’ job from school was as a welding apprentice. What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? After the obvious ie business plan, financial forecasting and marketing plan etc, I would recommend you network, network, network. Keep learning from others - it reaps rewards. If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? On a sunny beach in New Zealand. I love the lifestyle and variety the country affords, with its stunning landscapes and most agreeable climate. Quality of life there I guess would be even better than in Bournemouth!

What has been your best and worst moment in business? My best moment in business was when we successfully won a three year contract for a large social housing group. The worst was when we were subject to an intrusive tax investigation. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? Having an open mind; being receptive and maintaining a massive desire to succeed. What drives you to succeed? I strive to have a better quality of life for both me and my family and endeavour to achieve personal dreams and goals. Like a lot of business people, the fear of failure is also a big driver for me. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Horizontal – preferably still breathing! – on a beach somewhere.

6.30pm Start wrapping up work (in the office)

10am Back in the office to catch up with emails and phone calls. Site visits, inspections and client appointments in the afternoon

7.30pm Evening networking event or dinner at home 10pm Cocoa & slippers

VITAL STATISTICS Allan takes us through his vital statistics.

Born Ferndown

Worst Habit Pointing out other people’s worst habits!

Children My son and daughter both work with me in the business. I also have 2 beautiful grandchildren

What’s on your iPod What’s an ipod?!

Car Mitsubishi Barbarian Truck – ideal for my Labrador ‘Sally’. Favourite Film Forest Gump Party Trick (Not telling you! Wait until the party!)

Favourite Gadget My new toaster – it keeps the toast warm. Everyone should have one! Last Holiday Mediterranean cruise. Most embarrassing moment Dropping – and smashing - a bone china tea cup in the client’s kitchen right infront of her!

Business Profile Mark Cook

MC Plan & Site Services Ltd MY DAY A typical day in my life would be:

Every day is different as each client has different requirements, but an example would be: • Fuss over 2 Labradors When were you established? MC Plan and Site Services Ltd was established in September 2013. I had identified a niche to provide a personalised Professional Building Control Service to both the Private and Commercial sectors, regardless of size and monetary value. We at MC Plan & Site Services Ltd act as a ‘One Stop Shop’, encompassing all of the Building Control services under one roof, in an efficient and cost effective manner. MC Plan & Site Services Ltd will work closely with all parties involved throughout the process, including the Application Submission, Plan Assessments, Site Inspections and Completion of works. What was your first job? Plasterer’s Labourer. (Good exercise!) What has been your best and worst moment in business? Day 1 will always be regarded as the best and scariest day, but am yet to experience a bad day. What drives you to succeed? Determination and not wanting to fail.

What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? Always think ahead of the game and never stand still. What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? You should believe in your own abilities and just go for it. Also ensure that you have the right kind of people involved in the business to give you that added support and belief. If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? Somewhere hot and relaxing What is your favourite local Haunt? Le Bateau, Ashley Cross, Poole. Great atmosphere and fantastic pizzas. It’s also very convenient for our office! Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Being recognized as a main provider of a Building Control Consultancy Service throughout the South of England.

• Breakfast and the start of work at 6.30am before heading to the office • Responding to e-mails and organising fee quotations

• Gym • Tea • Fuss over our 2 Labradors

• Attending Pre Application Site and Design meetings

• Bed – ready for the next day’s early start

ABSOLUTE

STONE & BRICK

Why not give your property a facelift? Absolute stone and brick use a DOFF based cleaning system. It’s unlike any other steam system and can achieve temperatures 150°C. The DOFF system will remove dirt, paint, moss, algae, fungi, some graffiti, soot and smoke damage from almost any surface. The system uses steam so there is no need to use a chemical biocide during the removal process and the surfaces are dry within minutes. Unlike jet washing, DOFF uses steam rather than preasure to clean so it wont damage the surface being cleaned and also the steam kills any moss, fungi bio matter so the surface stays cleaner for much longer.

STEAM CLEANING

THE PERFECT WEDDING SUPPER Out the Park BBQ brings a fresh alternative to the

ALL ASPECTS OF STONE & BRICKWORK including New build, Walling, Roofing • Dry Stone • Stone Repair & Treatment • Patios & Flooring, Also Block Paving, Repointing & General Building

catering choices for your wedding supper. Provide your guests with mouth watering Authentic American Barbecue. Traditional Hickory Smoked Pulled Pork and Baby Back Ribs cooked low and slow to ensure maximum tenderness and flavour. Whether your reception party is outside in the garden or held inside, Out the Park give you the piece of mind knowing you are giving your guests something special. If you have any questions about the service we offer, then please give us a call or send us an email. Why not organise a free taste testing.

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

NEW VOLVO XC90 Volvo has opened the order books for the all-new Volvo XC90, the first vehicle to be built using its own in-house designed and built chassis and engines. On sale in the Spring and priced from around £45,000, it competes against rivals such as the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz M Class and Land Rover Discovery. Amongst the first orders to be placed are the lucky 1927 owners of the First Edition, 53 of them being from the UK. Customers who have already placed orders at dealers will have their order accepted by the factory and become the some of the first owners to have their vehicle delivered. The XC90 is the first car to be powered solely by Volvo’s new Drive-E engine range. It is a vailable to order from launch with either an allwheel-drive (AWD) D5 225hp diesel, an AWD T6 320hp petrol or an AWD T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid with 400hp.

NEW BOND ASTON MARTIN Aston Martin has unveiled a new DB10 model created specially for the next James Bond film Spectre, which will be in cinemas next November. Led by Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, the design team worked closely with the film’s director, Sam Mendes, to create the ultimate car for the world’s most famous spy. Celebrating the great British brand’s

half century with Bond, which started with the iconic DB5, the DB10 gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins. Dr Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, said: “In the same year that we celebrate our 50-year relationship with 007, it seems doubly fitting that today we unveiled this wonderful new sports car created especially for James Bond.

“To be partnering once again with EON Productions is great news for this company and for everyone around the world that loves to see Bond at the wheel of an Aston Martin. Production will be strictly limited to 10 of the bespoke sports cars, developed and built by the designers, engineers and highly skilled craftspeople at Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters.

WOMEN ‘UNCOMFORTABLE’ ABOUT CAR REPAIRS DACIA SALES UP November has seen the continued growth of the Dacia brand in the UK, with sales now up 48.1 per cent year-to-date, with 22,359 of what the company describes as ‘shockingly affordable’ new cars being sold in 2014 so far. According to official figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders , the brand sold 1,729 cars during November, representing a market share of 1.0 per cent for the month.

Many women drivers are not able to care for their cars properly because they don’t know how to choose a garage or technician they can trust, new research has revealed. In response, IMI, the professional body for the UK motor industry, is launching a campaign, featuring presenter Suzi Perry, to help them. A quarter of women drivers admit to never having their car serviced by a professional mechanic. They only deal with problems when they show up on the MOT. IMI fears that this approach makes them vulnerable as consumers and compromises their safety. The IMI survey found that women are reluctant to go to a professional technician because of worries about spiraling costs and being uncomfortable in the atmosphere of the garage. 36% admitted to knowing nothing about cars and being totally reliant on garage for guidance. They also said they don’t know what

they were being charged for in a garage and wouldn’t know how to challenge a bill if they felt it was wrong. Worrying for the trade, 17% of women said they felt they had been overcharged in the past. 22% of women drivers said they were reluctant to deal with garages because they were not comfortable with the atmosphere, 28% also said they were nervous about asking technical questions, and 31% said they were confused by the jargon used by the trade. When it came to choosing a garage in an emergency most said that without knowing the difference between a professional and a rogue trader, they simply went for the closest available and trusted to luck. IMI’s campaign will address all of these issues and help women care for their cars, give them the necessary knowledge to confidently deal with garages, and direct them to skilled and trustworthy

technicians’ in their local area through the online IMI Professional Register, www. imiregister.org.uk. IMI is advertising the Professional Register in a host of women’s magazines and on Mumsnet from today. The adverts link to a series of empowerment videos, featuring a Registered technician, Vicky Kempton, and the BBC’s Formula 1 presenter Suzi Perry. IMI CEO Steve Nash said, “Women drivers clearly feel they are in a precarious position as consumers in the motor industry and it’s all about trust. There is a massive knowledge gap between the professional and the customer in this industry, and contrary to popular belief there is no Government protection for them in the form of a license to practice for the motor trade.”

THE NEW ALFA GIULIETTA REVIEW Alfa Romeo has a reputation for designing beautiful cars and the new Alfa Giulietta doesn’t disappoint. First launched in the UK in 2010, the Giulietta is recognised as the stylish alternative to competitors such as the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. The build quality and economical engines in the most recent model result in a vehicle both accurately priced and fully-equipped, with a number of upgrades increasing the vehicles overall appeal. The most recent Alfa Giulietta also benefits from a new platform and suspension hardware. Exterior revisions include a new grille, new fog lamp bezels, new paint colours and different alloy wheel designs, giving the new Giulietta an even more striking presence than the previous model. Luna Pearl, Cobalto Blue and Metallo Bronze all compliment the cars design although the sharp lines down the bonnet are lost in some of the existing darker shades. The offset number plate, a trademark of Alfa Romeo cars, draws attention to the shiny new grille, neatly topped with the iconic Alfa badge, which makes it a pleasure to look at, as well as to drive. Built on Alfa Romeo’s most advanced architecture with a sophisticated multi-link rear suspension, the car benefits from good bump absorption and is an extremely smooth drive, whether you’re on the open road or making your way through town. Trim options

range from the Progression level to the top of the range Sportiva Nav with a very generous amount of specification. The Alfa Giulietta is also one of the safest cars on the road, with an anti-whiplash system, six airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system and three-point seat belts with double pre-tensioner as standard. It also features the exclusive Alfa Romeo driving selector, with three modes to adjust vehicle performance dependent on the road conditions and driving style, which offers drivers even more control, a feature that will appeal to those who enjoy driving for driving’s sake. The first mode, ‘Natural’, suggest gearshifts to optimize fuel consumption and emissions, while the second, ‘Dynamic’ mode, is more suited to the sporty driver, and reduces steering power assistance and offers greater control of lateral acceleration. The ‘All Weather’ mode increases the sensitivity of traction control and multi-split, handy when the vehicle attempts to grip two different surfaces. Whilst the only option for the Giulietta is a five-door, the handle-free rear doors enhance the vehicles streamlined style, giving it the look of a three-door. All six engines benefit from improved efficiencies and lower emissions, whether it’s the 1.4 TB MultiAir or the 2.0 JTDM-2 150hp. And if you behave yourself behind the wheel, the Giulietta remains relatively economical to drive.

Interior upgrades to Alfa’s newest model include new door trims, a new steering wheel and sportier leather seats with increased lateral support, all models feature a five-inch colour touch screen as standard. The UconnectTM infotainment system becomes the focus of a dashboard that looks and feels more quality than other models in it class, with handy USB/aux points situated in the centre console. The multimedia system includes Bluetooth connectivity, useful hands-free SMS reading and wireless music streaming, as well as DAB. The boot space is ample considering the size of the Giulietta and is considerably larger than that of the Ford Focus. Admittedly, the rear passenger space could be more generous, so any tall friends and family may find the headroom slightly restricting. As one of the safest and most stylish cars available, the Alfa Giulietta is also one of the most enjoyable to drive; a rather pleasing combination in a five-door hatchback.

Business Profile Dr Magdalena Owen DMD, MClinDent (Prosthodontics)

Dentistry@68 incorporating Rejuvenate@68 What are ‘non-surgical aesthetics treatments’? Non-surgical aesthetic treatments are part of aesthetic medicine and include all treatments that can improve the texture and appearance of the skin, rejuvenate the skin, reduce signs of ageing like lines and wrinkles and restore the skin’s former youthful appearance. By providing these treatments we can also target some skin problems like acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and loss of volume. The beauty of these treatments is that these are all non surgical procedures which mean that there is much less or no downtime after the treatment. Most importantly the results of these procedures are reversible. How did you become interested in the field of nonsurgical aesthetics treatments’? I was always interested in cosmetic dentistry. I think improving patients smile can be very awarding for patients and also a dentist. To progress in the field of cosmetic dentistry I completed my Master Degree in Prosthodontics at King’s College London. One of my favorite procedures is tooth whitening so I decided to write my dissertation about the color relapse after tooth whitening. Then I started to realize that restoring the teeth only may not be enough to restore the beautiful smile, sometimes the tissues around teeth needs to be enhanced as well. Some of the injectable procedures we are using in dentistry to correct gummy smile and to prevent tooth grinding so I got interested in these and that’s how it all started. What treatments do you provide? At Rejuvenate@68 we offer a wide portfolio of nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. We offer anti-wrinkle injections to improve appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles caused by overactive muscle movements. These injections have shown impressive results in treatment of expression lines around the eyes such as crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the eyebrows. We can also improve appearance of sad faces when muscles are pulling corners of the mouth down and even lines on the neck. To correct static wrinkles and folds caused by sagging skin like nose to mouth lines or marionette lines we use dermal fillers. Dermal Fillers offer a unique solution to plump up areas of the skin. These clear gels can be used to lift and fill facial lines and wrinkles, restore lost volume in the cheeks and enhance the contours of the face. In

addition lips can be treated with dermal fillers for an instantly revitalised look. We also offer treatments to rejuvenate and regenerate the skin of the face, neck, décolleté and hands. With these procedures we can treat aged skin, lines and wrinkles, thin and crêpey skin. We can also target some specific problems like sundamaged skin, hyperpigmentation, acne scars or even strech marks. Dermaroller™ skin needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is one of UK’s best and most exciting non-surgical skin regeneration procedure. Dermaroller therapy stimulates the skin to repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. This procedure offers amazing results without the inconvenient ‘down time’ that comes with more aggressive laser treatments and medium and deep chemical peels. And because it stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself without adding foreign substances to the body or taking anything away, Dermaroller is a natural process which has an excellent safety profile when used by trained medical aesthetic practitioners. Skinboosters allow to deeply hydrate the skin by adding hyaluronic acid to the skin via a number of small injections and are great treatment to rejuvenate and improves the quality of large areas of skin from the inside. The area of use for skinboosters is broad and today the products are also used for hydrobalance of the lips, treatment of dry elbows, treatment of acne and in combination with, for example, peeling or laser treatment. In addition skinboosters used in combination with Dermaroller™ provide the ultimate treatment to improve skin texture and elasticity and diminish crepeyness and fine lines to give beautiful radiant glowing skin. Mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. The Mesotherapy process delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism. Clinic-based chemical peels are essential for aiding in maintaining and restoring the skin’s healthy appearance. By treating the skin with different chemical peels we can: • stimulate collagen production to diminish the appearance of signs of photoageing, including the appearance of epidermal lines. • reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation,

uneven skin tone and dullness by exfoliating the skin’s surface cells. • Help to soften and smooth the appearance of the skin’s surface texture, eliminate the feeling of dry skin, refine the appearance of pores sizes Who should perform these treatments? Any injectable treatment should be performed by medical professionals only. It is very important to choose an experienced and knowledgeable medical practitioner. As dentists we have great knowledge of facial anatomy which is a fundamental requirement to not only achieve great results but most importantly to make the treatments safe for our patients. We use only best quality, well researched and clinically proven products. Our extensive experience in various injecting techniques results in treatments being provided with not only minimal discomfort but also great results. In addition we pay special attention to pain control to ensure that the procedures are comfortable and non-traumatic. Topical and local anaesthetics are used when needed to keep discomfort to the minimum. Most importantly our practice is CQC registered so patients can be sure that they are treated in a clean and safe environment and in full confidence. Are the treatments painful? No, most treatments involve very minimal or no discomfort. As I said before we pay special attention to pain control to ensure that the procedures are comfortable and non-traumatic. When needed we use topical and local anaesthetics to keep discomfort to the minimum. In addition for most treatments no or short recovery time is required so the patients can come back to their normal routine straight after treatment. Any side effects, if they occur are usually temporary and mild to moderate, and are typically linked to the injections e.g. pain on injection, redness, swelling. What drives you to succeed? I always want more and I am only satisfied with my achievements for a short while. Soon I will start looking for new things and new challenges. I’m a perfectionist, that gives me a lot of energy and drive to move forward.

NO SWEAT

Gym-free Slimming We all love the idea of a weight-loss fix minus the hard work - but can you really get results? If someone said you could lie on a couch, be massaged for half hour and lose significant inches around your waist, you’d have every right to be sceptical. Is this really possible, or too good to be true? We put this question to Fat Loss Expert ‘Terry Gayle’ from The Slimming Rooms: After years of working in the Fitness Industry trying to help people to lose weight, it became obvious that following a Diet Plan or attending the Gym week in week out isn’t for everyone!

At The Slimming Rooms in Bournemouth. We offer a variety of slimming and weight loss treatments including the revolutionary Lipofirm Plus Ultrasound Liposuction treatment. In a nutshell, Lipofirm Plus uses ultrasonic technology to break down fat cells and radio frequency to tighten up your skin, so you get inch loss and firm skin all in one.

Business Profile Tim Seward

Cliff House Hotel General Manager

Cliff House Hotel is a NEW boutique hotel nestled in the idyllic town of Southbourne. A charming, must stay hotel just a stones throw from Southbourne’s famous smooth sandy beaches. With a fast growing reputation for their delicious locally sourced menu, the food itself is reason enough to visit. The charming boutique hotel is managed by an award-winning team, who are dedicated to offering guests a professional friendly service.

MY DAY A typical day in my life

When were you established? Proprietor, Andrew Gosling, bought the hotel in November 2013. Restoration began on the 14 bedroomed boutique hotel earlier this year in January (2014) and doors officially opened in June. What was your first job? My first job in the hotel/hospitality industry was as a General Assistant at Lindors Country House Hotel, Gloucestershire, back in 1993. But from a young age I helped out with a local family catering business, that’s where I got the hospitality bug! What has been your best and worst moment in business? My best moment by far has been my time at Cliff House Hotel. To have been involved in the renovation project, opening the doors to the public to being nominated for a Boutique Hotelier Award; all in the space of 8 months, it’s been the best rollercoaster experience! What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? Determining your USP (Unique Selling Point), it’s probably the most important decision that was made at Cliff House Hotel. Unique, Boutique and Provenance. If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? I’m currently planning my 2015 vacation to Italy and Switzerland. I love to experience the true culture and hospitality of these countries

VITAL STATISTICS Tim takes us through his vital statistics.

and I’ve heard so many great things about them. I have friends living there, so I’m looking forward to meeting up with them too. What is your favourite local Haunt? Bournemouth is such a lively vibrant area with great local business and restaurants serving delicious local produce. Most of my spare social time is spent discovering new places and suppliers; it is such an exciting culinary area. Recently I have been discovering and networking in the Southbourne area, we have an abundance of amazing businesses right on our doorstep. What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? I think that determination, confidence and passion are vital to be a good entrepreneur as well as having the ability to see the bigger picture. Business is all about building relationships and entrepreneurs often have to take risks whilst leading employees, suppliers and clients; this can only be achieved with strong relationships. What drives you to succeed? Customer satisfaction. There is nothing better than knowing you have truly delivered an amazing experience to guests. I believe in not just meeting but exceeding expectations, and the team are dedicated to making the experience at Cliff House Hotel an exceptional one. It gives me a great sense of pride when we receive excellent feedback on TripAdvisor or Facebook; it makes all the hardwork and long hours feel very insignificant.

would be:

When on ‘Duty’ I wake at Cliff House Hotel at 6.30am, we have accommodation on site to ensure that guests can always contact a member of staff anytime of the day. I’ll grab myself a quick tea and head straight down to my office to quickly check any emails and messages. Next I’ll head to the Kitchen to catch up with our Head Chef, Cedric. He’ll be busy preparing for breakfast but we’ll discuss any new menu changes and events taking place that day/week. My next stop is the Clifton Room to oversee the breakfast service. Breakfast is always such a fantastic time to spend with our guests, chatting about their stay and making recommendations for local attractions. After breakfast service has finished I brief our Housekeeper and then retreat to my office I’ll spend time catching up on emails, bookings and checking out guests. Our lounge bar is open to non residents from 10am, so that is my next port of call. We change our menus seasonally and offer hearty breakfasts, traditional Champagne afternoon teas to classic modern dinners. Ingredients are locally sourced, seasonal and of the highest quality, so I always like to talk through the menu and daily events with our front of house staff. Our special events and evenings have become highlights for the local community from our weekly Thursday evening Cocktail Club, Sunday Lunches to summer Hog Roasts and Italian inspired dinners, there’s always a new idea to discuss with the staff and guests! The afternoon is a hive of activity as new guests arrive and preparations begin for evening dinner service. I try to leave the Hotel by 8pm and head out for a walk along the beach. My evenings are spent catching up with friends and discovering new local restaurants and bars. I’ll have one last sneaky look at my emails before bed.

Born: 28.10.77 School: Educated in Bristol Favourite Film: Anything Bond or Bourne! Favourite Gadget: My ipad! From checking the local weather forecast for guests or changing the genre of music in the bar on Spotify it’s never far away from me.

Business Profile Kevin Wood

Oceana Hotels and Leisure When were you established? 2006 What was your first job? Commis Chef and Dishwasher in Le Bifteck Bistro French Restaurant What has been your best and worst moment in business? One of the best was achieving two national awards at the HRS Hospitality Awards in London 2011/12 for the Cumberland beating off some top 5 star London Hotels. The worst was most likely the October 1989 Hurricane that tore off the main roof of the New Durley Dean Hotel on the Westcliff where I was General Manager. What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? Someone who has both common sense and intelligence that can think out of the box and keep current. What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? I guess just work hard, keep current and don’t be afraid to take some chances, whilst also keeping your feet on the ground. You staff are your

business so treat them with respect, and customer service is everything in today’s world. I believe totally in operating with absolutely no discrimination.

MY DAY

If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? I returned here from California after 10 years, Bournemouth is as good a place as many around the world. I do love the Sun, so an alternative would be Southern Spain or Mexican Pacific Coast.

A typical day in my life would be:

What is your favourite local Haunt? South Deep is one of my favorite eating places, and I am always on the look out for a good old fashioned traditional pub! What drives you to succeed? It’s in my blood, I don’t know any other way! Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Most Likley downscaling from the 280 Rooms I operate now, to something much much smaller, with a 6 Star Experience, but limited facilities so the pressure is not 24 hours

6.30am Waking up to the news, and making a Fresh Fruit Smoothy.

Webmaster to ensure projects are on schedule.

8am Driving into work, doing a walk round of all three hotels and the Sales office, saying good morning and assessing what needs to be done for the coming day.

11am Hosting a daily Manager meeting with all mangers on duty across the resort

9am Getting my daily Costa Coffee from the Cumberland before sitting down to see how many rooms are available to sell upcoming in the days ahead, and setting the rates with my revenue manager. 10am Starting my daily office work of marketing, purchasing, and general hotel operations.Checking in with our

Business Profile Jacqueline Entwistle Quantum Recruitment When were you established? I officially launched my business in January 2010

My best moment…There have been numerous positives in my working life but I still feel the best is yet to come. There’s always something more to achieve.

What was your first job? I was just sixteen years old and a civilian Classified Registry Clerk at Bovington. It was at the time of the Falklands War. I worked for the Director of the Royal Armoured Corp at HQ DRAC in the Classified Registry; managing classified documents. My first job of the morning was very sad as I had to remove a list from a secure telex machine of all the deaths to the Director of the Royal Armoured Corp.

What have been your best and worst moments in business? My worst was slicing my hand open and having to have emergency micro and neurosurgery just 19 days after having set up Quantum Recruitment. The accident happened whilst polishing a wine glass at home– the surgeon told me that it is the most common injury in the Hospitality Industry; apparently! It resulted in me having my arm strapped up for three months which was quite debilitating. Setting up a business with only one arm was certainly a challenge as was day to day life. It proved to me that if I could get through that I could overcome any issues in my business.

What one piece of advice would you give to someone starting up a new business? Never underestimate the time that you will give to your business and how all-consuming it can be.

What do you think makes a good entrepreneur? I think you need many attributes…It’s essential to believe in yourself, to be prepared to take a risk, to be extremely driven and stay true to your values.

What drives you to succeed? I really value success for the Business, the team and myself. We like to deliver ethical recruitment and know that we are adding real value to our clients’ businesses by recruiting the right staff for them.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? If you had asked me ten years ago where I would be now I wouldn’t have said, ‘five years in to running

a successful business!’ So, I’ll come back to you on that one!

If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be and why? I love travelling and experiencing new destinations and cultures but there’s no better place to be in the UK than Poole and Bournemouth!

What is your favourite local Haunt? I have a few favorites, it depends who on my mood. However, being on my doorstep I love the Harbour Heights Hotel due to the excellent food, service and in my opinion, the best view in Poole.

A fact that most people won’t know about me I used to trade in military air craft spares, specialising in The Hunter and later the Hawk and Jaguar, dealing with overseas Air Forces and Navies. I once had to take shelter in a bunker in the Bekaa Valley whilst the Hezbollah were shelling! These experiences have led to my love of military air craft and I don’t mind admitting that I am a bit of a plane spotter! This passion is the reason why each year I feel honoured to be a Patron of the Bournemouth Air Festival.

Ed’s career started out in comedy, when he gave up his job as a researcher on the BBC panel game They Think It’s All Over to become a full-time stand-up comedian and a semi-finalist in the 2004 BBC New Comedy Awards. Ed was the main continuity presenter on CBBC for three years and was nominated for a BAFTA for Best Children’s Presenter in 2008. He is well known to children and parents for starring alongside Oucho the Cactus in the CBBC series’ Transmission Impossible with Ed and Oucho and Ed and Oucho’s Excellent Inventions. He is currently on location in Europe filming a new series of All Over the Place, the show which sees him embarking on quests to discover unusual, strange and amazing places, and can be seen in the new series of Marrying and Mum and Dad, which returns to TV screens later this summer. Back by popular demand are Lighthouse favourites Neil Smye and Dan Looney, whose comic timing and ability to get audiences crying with laughter has become synonymous with the Poole panto. Local actresses Stephanie Walker and Alicia Woodhouse have worked their way up through the pantomime ranks and now take on the parts of Fairy Mary and Maid Marion respectively. Non-stop thrills and spills are the order of the day as Robin takes on his archrival the Sheriff of Nottingham and still finds time to catch the eye of the beautiful Maid Marion in this classic tale. Sing-along tunes, dancing, slapstick, silliness and lots of chances to join in make Robin Hood the perfect entertainment for families this Christmas. Poole Lighthouse www.lighthousepoole.co.uk

ALL OF OUR FITTER THAN FIT CLASSES ARE DESIGNED WITH THE SAME GOALS IN MIND TO IMPROVE FITNESS BY STRENGTHENING HEART & LUNGS TO TONE & STRENGTHEN MUSCLES TO BURN CALORIES & FAT

WE CAN HELP YOU GET THAT SUMMER BODY... BUT DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT I wanted to get down a couple of sizes before my holiday and I had seen my friend loose almost 2 stone after going to Fitter Than Fit so I decided to give it a go. The first class was free so I had nothing to loose except some excess fat!

As someone who has always struggled to motivate myself to go to the gym I’ve always been on the look out for a better solution. I stumbled across Fitter Than Fit by accident and thought I’d give it a go. Fun, friendly and most importantly, no egos.

What I loved about the classes was everyone was so friendly, Charlie and Mike who take the classes were very supportive and made it fun by throwing in some Thai Boxing exercises that have not only toned my legs and bum but also taught me some helpful self defence techniques, I couldn’t be happier with the result which took about 7 weeks!

You really do only get out what you’re prepared to put in, but to have people there to motivate you towards your goal makes all the difference. In the first six months Fitter Than Fit helped me lose well over a stone in body fat. No two sessions have ever been the same. It’s hard work, with a firm but fair mentality, but you will not find a more engaging, enjoyable and rewarding way to exercise. It’s changed something I used to dread into something I can’t wait for.

I am more confident, have more energy and feel great.
