Keller Williams UK has announced that former Purplebricks founding territory manager JP Downes has joined as operating principle of the firm’s market centre covering the Coventry and Warwickshire territory.
Downes offers a wealth of experience working within real estate with Keller Williams adding that his “knowledge, enthusiasm and winning attitude makes him a truly exciting addition” to its team.
The firm added that Downes closed a total of 195 transactions last year, making him an “exceptionally talented individual” for its agents and leadership teams to lean into.
Downes said: “I was connected with Ben Taylor and we talked about the inspirational opportunities that Keller Williams offers – I love estate agency and property is my passion, but for too many customers and agents, the industry does not work for them.
“The opportunity was there for me to join Keller Williams as operating principal for my own Market Centre in the Coventry and Warwickshire area and I am truly delighted to be opening KW Phoenix.”
He added: “Working within the Keller Williams family – and it is just that – gives agents the tools and support to build incredible lives for themselves and their loved ones. The values really fit what I believe is at the heart of estate agency – delivering exceptional customer experience, with great results, through building personal relationships.
“For our agents, the level of training, systems and support here is incredible and unlike any other offer in the industry. I am genuinely excited to be working with the agents that join me on this journey at KW Phoenix.”
