Success stories: Samuel Estates
Samuel Estates is a small south London residential lettings, sales and property management agency, set up in 2004. The business entered and won our Enterprising Business Awards in 2008 which provided the company with extra knowledge and resources to expand their business knowledge and improve services to all their clients.
Nicholas Samuel, Managing Director says,"I wanted to identify my business’ needs, develop them and expand my company accordingly. I wanted to do this by meeting fellow entrepreneurs and by gaining knowledge from the academic world. The funding helped a lot and enabled us to employ a student to improve the marketing and promotions of my business which was our main area for development."
The company is now experiencing real growth, as proved by success in further competitions including, reaching the finalist stages at the South London Business Awards 2009 and two category wins at the Merton Business Awards 2010.
"The Enterprising Business Awards was a real kick start to my business and gave me the resources to expand Samuel Estates which has been going from strength to strength ever since."
