Meet the owner
Owner, Lyn Milligan, has experience across a variety of businesses, including her own companies.
After twenty years in Sales & Business Management, Estate Agency became a passion for Lyn, enjoying many great years in the residential property sales market. In the downturn market of 2008, Lyn set up her own Lettings Agency, Lets Move, from scratch, building a successful business, managing 80 properties, for Landlord clients. Selling this business, a Limited Company, in 2014.
Lyn dived into the Hospitality industry, buying a Guest House which previously operated on minimal trading, due to the owners’ lifestyle choice. Upgrading the property, Lyn turned the business around, doubling the turnover, and achieving 11th place out of 154 Bed & Breakfasts in Torquay on Trip Advisor. Lyn sold the Bed & Breakfast in 2016. This second business sale lit a fire within her, to work with other business owners, sourcing buyers and helping guide clients through the business sale process.
Through her personal & business experiences, in estate agency, property, sales and business start-up, Lyn has a great understanding of the commercial world, how best to help the sellers, and how to offer the buyers what they want, along with the associated professionals to help them achieve it
Bringing these skill sets together to form BusinessXchange, Lyn is well equipped to drive the business and, having owned and run a Guest House, also has first-hand knowledge in the hospitality sector
Keen to chat and without any obligation, Lyn is happy to visit your property and give advice if you are interested in selling your business. Perhaps you just want some advice in order to plan your exit in the future
