A SCUNTHORPE man has set up a new estate and letting agency.
Josh Walshe was only 17 when he started managing property full-time.
Now 19, he has set up a new business on the back of his parent's rental portfolio called Walshe's Property & Letting Agency.
The former John Leggott College student started off helping his parents out with their rental properties.
Josh, who is from Crowle and now lives on Salmonby Road, said: "In the space of six months, it evolved to me doing it all."
Josh said he was working as a lifeguard at The Pods at the time, before he decided to take up the property side of things full-time.
"A couple of weeks ago, I secured a 12-month contract with Zoopla. "I do all the work out of my home office. I do all the meetings at the person's house. I have had people in the past that come over to mine. It was a bit more personal," he said.
Josh is currently studying for his level three residential sales.
This qualification is a requirement for the Membership of the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA).
Josh said: "The main goal for me at the moment is being established. I want to be a household name."
To celebrate joining Zoopla, Walshe's is offering 50 per cent off its total sale fee until the end of June.
It will extend until the seller's property is sold.Walshe's is also offering 50 per cent off its management fees for landlords for the first three months.
The offer includes pre-tenant expenses and the monthly fee. For more information, call 07794 307889, visit walshesproperty.co.uk or search Walshe's Property & Letting Agency on Facebook.
