Natalie shines some light on her life as Platinum Property Partners franchise partner during the COVID-19 crisis. 

It’s certainly not been easy for business owners the past few months. The coronavirus outbreak has presented tremendous difficulties – but we are starting to adapt.

PPP franchisee Natalie has shared how she has navigated operating her estate agent and property franchise in these truly unprecedented times.

In her blog post in June, she started by admitting that, like the rest of the UK population, herself and her business partners where anxious when the nation entered lockdown. 

Natalie’s team started to think turning one of their properties into a HMO wasn’t the best business decision, so they considered doing a quick refurbishment and selling or renting it as a family home. 

However, they decided to stick to their original plan, following the advice of their buying and renovation mentors.

“Mike, in particular, went through the 2008 financial crisis having just joined Platinum as a Franchise Partner. He reassured me, as if I really needed reassuring knowing how well insulated and how well run Platinum is, that everything would be okay and we should press on with our plans.”

Although Natalie had to balance operating her franchise with home-schooling her daughter, she used the lockdown time to really reflect on what was best for her business.

“That left the evenings to take a deeper look at our floor plan for the property, architectural drawings and quotations, which maybe we wouldn’t have done had we not been forced to stay in!”

Natalie and her husband spent time thinking about how they could future-proof the property to work well for tenants while the government tries to keep the pandemic under control, in what is being referred to as the ‘new normal’. What might this entail?

“That is likely to see more people working from home and even potential future lockdowns for further waves of COVID-19.”
