It also sold 16% more homes via a higher conversion rate.This contrasts with the wider TPFG brand network which includes Martin & Co, where growth has come almost exclusively from lettings.“As well as also increasing its lettings revenue our hybrid brand EweMove demonstrated that its unique, highly customer centric offering can defy the challenging sales market, as its sales revenue increased,” says Wilson (left).“EweMove has improved its cash generation year on year, and tight cost control has delivered a corresponding improvement in profitability. We are on track to materially improve on the 2018 result for the full year.”Ian Wilson TPFG EweMove September 10, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
