At the tender age of fifteen it was clear to Libby Clarke that sales was the route for her, however, a change of product was on the cards.
In the fourth and final episode of our Female Entrepreneur series, in partnership with Tarasis Enterprises – Supporting Female Entrepreneurs – we speak to the Portadown businesswoman who explains how property was not her first dabble in sales.
Growing up with a farming background, cattle was always Libby's first passion and she recalls selling her first property at fifteen.
Following Libby's father's retirement, the keen saleswoman took on a role with the then branded Joyce Estate Agents in 2002.
Fast forward to 2010, Joyce Clarke was born following a buy out of the business.
Libby explains the process as a "seamless transaction" and tells us how some of the team are key to the success of the business.
Cash flow, IT systems, long hours and mortgage changes are all part of normal working life - not to mention a farm at home which Libby manages herself.
