Annual Awards 2018

On Friday 26th January, the CENTURY 21 UK family came together at the SDL Group’s annual conference, SDL Property: 2018, providing an amazing opportunity to recognise achievements, as well as take part in informative seminars to guide our franchisees through the year.

The morning was kicked off by SDL Group Commercial Director, Rob Clifford, who gave an overview of 2017, examining some of the market challenges that were faced, but most importantly, showcasing the continued growth CENTURY 21 UK experienced during the year. During 2017, CENTURY 21 UK had a record breaking year in terms of new offices joining, while continuing to grow our network of self-employed property brokers. We were also able to celebrate being a part of the Elite Franchise Top 100, being one of only two estate agents recognised on the list.

Rob was also on hand to help out with presenting our awards for 2017, which were given out to:

An amount in the region of £5million was invoiced in total commission across the network in 2017, with encouraging performances across the board. CENTURY 21 Southampton had 140+ lets agreed in their first year of trading, while CENTURY 21 Slough achieved a sales pipeline of over £50,000 in their first four months. CENTURY 21 Cobham & Esher also experienced promising results, earning 15 instructions in only their first six weeks of trading.

We were lucky enough to be joined by Damon Bullimore of Brief Your Market, who delivered a highly informative and relevant seminar session on the upcoming implementation of GDPR (the General Data Protection Regulation), which was highly beneficial to all.

After lunch, the team from Century 21 UK International joined us to talk about the opportunities they can provide to our network to increase revenue streams from overseas, truly cementing our place as a part of the world’s largest estate agency.

The day was a great success, and it was fantastic to see so many familiar faces in one room – we hope to see you all next year!
