Mr Investa has hired Will Crane as head of valuations and sales, as the portfolio buy-to-let-focused business focuses on expanding.
His appointment has been welcomed by viral comedian Troy Hawke of the ‘Greeters Guild’ via a video message, as well as with a large billboard in the centre of MediaCityUK.
Crane has been working in property since the age of 16, while he is experienced in lettings, sales, valuations, and management across a 14-year career.
He has exhibited at property investment shows up and down the country, as well as organised private seminars to introduce developments.
Ryan Hughes, managing director of Mr Investa, said: “We are ecstatic at Will’s appointment, who we foresee becoming a key part of the team.
“His knowledge of the buy-to-let market is unmatched, while his experience of managing teams will be integral as we look rapidly expand Mr Investa.”
Crane’s hire means the company has doubled its staff count since its inception in February 2021, as the estate agency is on track to bring its staff count to double figures by 2023.
The company has already moved to a larger premises to accommodate more employees, which is on the fifth floor of MediaCityUK with water-facing views.
The comedian Troy Hawke ‘greeted’ the new hire by saying the following: “You’ve been hired for a reason Will. Mr Investa does not muck about – he knows exactly what he’s looking for.
“He’s got a wonderful radar and fantastic intuition and both of those laser pointed guidance systems has picked you to be part of the team.”
