From small acorns


Have you ever been stuck for ideas about a career choice? Maybe you have finished school and really don’t know what to do next, or perhaps you are in a job that just isn’t fulfilling your needs.


Have you ever thought about estate agency? For the right person, the property industry can open a very rewarding door to a well-paid and satisfying career path. No one represents this more than David Musgrove, who at only 24 years old is heading up and managing the increasingly reputable abbotFox lettings division.


David was attracted to the industry by his passion for working with people and property and at 17 years old, he began his apprenticeship in a family run business. Whilst he learnt the ropes of agency life, David grew an appetite for the industry and it wasn’t long before he had completed his apprenticeship and begun to take on more responsibility. After three years in the office, he had become the lettings manager and was already beginning to attract the attention of bigger companies based in Norwich.


I asked David what he thought were the key qualities that had made him able to succeed in such a short space of time and he replied; “you have to have a passion and drive to succeed and being target orientated helps to keep you focused.” He went on to explain that he would recommend estate agency to anyone, revealing that it keeps him on his toes and he gains a great sense of contentment from the job.


Estate agency is often associated with financial incentives and David admits that the large pay cheques are definitely one of his more favourable perks of the job. abbotFox snapped up David from his original post in 2013 and appointed him manager of the new lettings branch of the company at only 23 years old. The division has since grown from strength to strength and is rapidly becoming one of Norwich’s elite lettings firms.


A company Mercedes and overseas bonus trips are just a dip in the ocean of what David has been treated to, due to his success since he began with abbotFox. I wanted to find out what David thought made abbotFox different to other estate agents in Norwich and he replied; “I would pick abbotFox over any other agent in Norwich, one because they pay the most but also because they are driven to be the best, and to be honest are the best.”  


If you think that you possess the same qualities which allowed David to flourish in this industry, then we would love to hear from you and help to get your career started. We are holding a recruitment evening on Monday 27th July and would like to see as many keen, enthusiastic and driven individuals as possible. We are looking for one ideal candidate and can assure unlimited earning potential and a fantastic opportunity to embark on a career in estate agency.
