Georgia Zambakides speaks with Jamie Lester, former Apprentice star and JLC Founder, in the penultimate devcast… of 2019.
"Just because you’ve been on the telly doesn’t mean your the best thing since slice bread… Unfortunately I thought I was the best thing since slice bread!"
At the age of 15, Jamie launched a career in Estate Agency chasing the ‘suit and tie’ lifestyle which, at the time, was his definition of success. Almost a decade on and Jamie faced the worst financial credit crunch in a hundred years which lead him to apply for the first season of The Apprentice, Jamie appeared on the show just a few months later, starring as one of the first professionals to stand alongside Sir Alan Sugar in his hit TV show. At the age of 31, Jamie launched his own Estate Agency which almost instantly revolutionised the traditional Estate Agency model; no ties, no clipboards, no desks, no water coolers. Haus Properties was born. Quickly recognised for its innovative approach Haus Properties was awarded ‘Britain’s Best Estate Agents’ by The Telegraph. Jamie is now recognised for his highly advanced approach to sales, marketing, social media and branding for the property industry.
This episode of devcast… lifts the lid on one of the fastest selling developments in London and explains what it’s really like to be a contestant on The Apprentice.
