Profit Track 100

When Paul Rooney, 66, bought a chain of 100 estate agencies from Prudential Property Services in 1991, he says his best decision was to restore the firms’ original names, including Ward & Partners in Kent. Based in Horsham, West Sussex, its branches are located across London and southeast England. Arun’s performance is now back to pre-credit crunch levels, with profits of £11m in 2012.
