DOMVS Estate Agency Expands into Beaminster with Successful Hybrid Model

DOMVS, a leading Dorset estate agent has launched its newest venture in Beaminster, to complement its office and consultant agency network. 

The decision to expand into Beaminster follows the resounding success of DOMVS’s consultant agent model in Dorset, which has been particularly successful in neighbouring Bridport, run by Benjamin Dobson. With four consultant agents already operational in strategic locations including Blandford Forum, Swanage, and Shaftesbury, alongside office locations in Dorchester, Wareham and Weymouth, DOMVS is looking forward to expanding its West Dorset operations. 

Polly Greenway, Founder and Director of DOMVS Estate Agency, highlighted the significance of the consultant agent model in driving the company’s growth, stating, “This expansion reaffirms our commitment to providing innovative opportunities for property professionals, and while we offer both franchise and consultant agent options, it is the latter that has proved most appealing. We now have five talented agents as a part of our extended team and our end-of-year results speak for themselves. The successful launch of a Bridport agency in West Dorset prompted us to grow further in that region and we’re delighted to now be opening in Beaminster and welcoming Jonathan Gudge to the DOMVS family.” 

Benjamin Dobson, the driving force behind the Bridport office, has recently completed his first full financial year, in which he has facilitated the exchange of 17 properties, amounting to an impressive £8,234,850 in value, at an average fee of 1.5%, split 60/40 in favour of the consultant agent. He has sold properties ranging from £230,000 to £758,000, with an average sales price of £484,403, which compares favourably to the average across Bridport (DT6) of £366,887*. With a pipeline of sales valued at £2,730,000, and 14 units valued at £7,519,950 currently on the market, Benjamin is on course for even greater results in this financial year. 

Previously a farmer, with a string of professional sporting qualifications, Benjamin has worked in estate agency for over a decade, for well-known estate agency brands in East Devon and West Dorset. He lives locally in Bridport and is now much happier working for a brand that gives him flexibility and freedom. He comments “Joining DOMVS as a consultant agent has been life-changing for me. Since launching, I have had the full support of a marketing team, access to all the best proptech, and senior-level training. With a toddler and another child on the way, my role at DOMVS has enabled me to build a successful business while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. I am thrilled to support our expansion into Beaminster and look forward to working with Jonathan Gudge in his new role.”

Jonathan Gudge expressed his enthusiasm for the opportunity, stating, “I am excited to continue the growth of DOMVS in West Dorset, an area where Benjamin has already won significant market share. The success of our nearby offices demonstrates the strong demand for our services, and I am committed to delivering exceptional results for our clients in Beaminster and the surrounding areas.”

Polly Greenway continues “We provide all the benefits of a franchise, without the associated costs and risks, empowering individuals like Benjamin and Jonathan to thrive in their businesses. This hybrid proposition is very compelling to those with an entrepreneurial spirit and the only real risk is not having faith in yourself to achieve great things.”

DOMVS continues to explore opportunities for expansion, with a focus on areas such as Wimborne, Poole, Bournemouth, and Sherborne. As the demand for innovative solutions in the property market grows, DOMVS remains committed to providing tailored opportunities that empower its partners and benefit the communities they serve.For more information about DOMVS Estate Agency and its consultant agent opportunities, visit
