What are we looking for?

We are looking for people who have the ability to grow their own business, whether they’re a seasoned property professional or completely new to estate agency. When we consider our most successful franchisees, there’s one thing they all have in common; it’s not experience, location or budget – although all of these things help – it’s drive and determination.

Hear what our current franchisees have to say:

C21 Barking & Dagenham

“Before I joined Century 21, I had no prior industry experience, meaning it was a complete step into the unknown. So far, it’s been an amazing journey. I’m still learning and enjoying the experience, and Chris has been a fantastic help throughout. I chose to open a C21 franchise as it is one of the world’s largest estate agencies, and is currently undergoing an amazing level of growth in the UK. I also knew that through opening and operating a franchise, I’d have access to training and support that would be hugely beneficial to me.”

C21 Fulham & C21 Putney

“I was first introduced to the Century 21 brand when living in France, where I was also lucky enough to invest in property. The main reasoning behind me choosing to become a franchisee was that I could instil confidence in potential clients, thanks to the Century 21 name. Very few Europeans or Americans walking down any UK high street would recognise the agencies available, unless C21 is present. I’ve enjoyed every moment so far as a franchisee. I relish having the chance to run my own business, and the training provided was very useful.”

C21 Liverpool & South

“We wanted to open a number of branches in Merseyside over the coming years and felt this would be too difficult to do as an independent agent. After researching C21 UK and looking into the brand’s worldwide reach, it was apparent that this global competitor was what we needed to hit the ground running. There is also the added advantage of the relationship with the SDL Group, which aside from marketing and training resource, will also allow us to access a large number of rental properties in the Liverpool area.”

The franchise package includes:

Dedicated Business Development Manager

Continuous Support & Training

Strategy & Compliance Advice

Additional Earning Opportunities

Access to Marketing Resources

Market-Leading Technology
