CENTURY 21 launches first discounted franchise campaign
One of the UK’s fastest growing property franchise networks is giving experienced local estate agents in the UK the chance to become a Century 21 UK franchisee by significantly reducing its joining fee until the end of June.
Century 21, whose UK franchise is owned and operated by property expert SDL Group, will be offering property experts the chance to operate under the well-known brand from £23,500 to just £1,000* as part of its ‘Let your Business Blossom with Century 21 UK’ campaign.
The UK franchise has experienced phenomenal growth recently and is set to open 14 more branches nationwide within the next few months has plans for further growth. Explaining more, Chris Summers, head of sales and development, says the company wants to make it easier for smaller, independent agents to leverage its name and expertise in order to become more competitive:
“We know that many bricks-and-mortar estate agents have suffered as a result of online-only firms entering the market. The fact that some are now really struggling and making losses is bad news for the property industry, so we thought it was a good time to launch our first offer of this kind.
“By joining forces with an established company like Century 21 UK, property professionals can give customers a wider choice of services, including auctions, surveying, estate management and mortgages, among others. As a franchisee, they continue to own their business and trade on their trusted reputation in the local area.”
Dylan Mollison-Cousen, a current franchisee based in Cobham, explains his experience with Century 21 UK:
“I had been an estate agent for seven or so years, working for a number of businesses, but always had the end goal of setting up on my own. I explored a number of options, and soon realised Century 21 UK provided the best platform to give vendors and landlords the required exposure in order to achieve the best price.
“In a competitive location near Surrey, I needed a brand name which was already known and well respected in the area. Century 21 UK was the obvious choice.
“It’s been quite the journey and just six months after opening, our hard work was officially recognised by one of the most prestigious awards the industry has to offer, as the British Property Awards crowned us ‘Best Estate Agent in town’.”
The ‘Let your Business Blossom’ offer is open to existing sales and/or lettings agents across the UK, subject to terms and conditions and VAT.
