How did Frank come about?
Frank was established by two friends – one an experienced local estate agent and the other a property owner – who had become increasingly disheartened by the recurrent landmines of the property business.
Honest property dealing needed a face, so the idea for Frank Property grew from there. For more information on how Frank came about see this article by Chris.
