Jenkins & Co Property Tasmania launches in Launceston, as UrbanX expands into the state.

There is some big news coming out of Launceston as Jenkins & Co Property Tasmania launches, powered by UrbanX. The arrival of the new boutique brand also coincides with the expansion of UrbanX into the state, as they continue to grow their network of high-performing agents around Australia.  

After 16 years in the industry, working under the traditional franchise model, Phillipa Jenkins has made the decision to launch her own brand and stand out from her competition, with the support of industry disruptor, UrbanX. 

As the owner of her business, Phillipa is excited to be able to make the best decisions for all her clients and create a much more personalised experience in the local market. 

“I first got into the industry after selling my house, while going through a divorce, so I understand that everyone has different reasons for selling. No two properties and no two people are the same, so I am motivated to be able to establish exactly what my clients want and deliver the best possible outcome for them.” 

“One of the benefits of working for myself is that I will be agile. I can make decisions quickly and if a vendor wants to change something throughout the process, I can do it quickly, without needing to seek approvals.” 

As she launches her own business, Phillipa is excited about the opportunity to continue to grow professionally. While working under the franchise model, she realised that she could not grow anymore working under someone else’s brand and the opportunity to go out on her own, with the support of UrbanX was the logical next step to take her career to the next level. 

“UrbanX made it so easy for me to set up my business. I would not have been able to do it without them. They guided me through every step of the process and in 8 weeks I had my own business and brand, that I was ready to launch.” 

The decision to partner with UrbanX was easy for Phillipa, and after launching her own business, she knows she made the right choice. 

“They are a forward-thinking company and have their finger on the pulse. The team knows everything that is happening in the industry, and I know that if there is any new technology available that would benefit me, they would be the first to know about it. They will allow me to focus on listing and selling property while supporting me to run my business, it is so refreshing.” 

After first getting into the industry as a single parent of 3, real estate has changed Phillipa and her family’s life. She is so proud to be working under her own brand and as her daughter studies to enter the industry, Phillipa is excited to leave a legacy with her own business.
