Here’s what our Agents say about the benefits of joining the network:
"I started my independent real estate office in 2007 to service our mostly rural area. As our sales of vacant properties increased so did the inquiries of where to source good quality sheds. I joined Steelx as a Wide Span Agent in 2009 and after undergoing their training began shed quoting. Not only is the remuneration very welcome but the ability to offer this service as part of my real estate business is widely appreciated and has broadened my customer base. In recent years Steelx has enhanced the quoting program, added more features and provide dedicated agent support streamlining the quoting process and making it a simple way to make money."

"Bronwen & I have been Wide Span Sheds agents for over 10 years and it has been a pleasure working with a company like Steelx who continually improve its products. It is our experience that Wide Span Sheds are the “best in the business”. The help received from head office staff is first class and the ongoing marketing strategy is remarkable. The products are easy to sell against all competition."
