The Property Franchise Group is the UK’s largest multi-brand property franchise specialist.
We are a group of five well-known UK estate agency and lettings brands: CJ Hole, Ellis & Co, Martin & Co, Parkers and Whitegates – creating a network of nearly 300 offices reaching from Falmouth to Aberdeen and most places in-between.
Here are some basic numbers for you:
5 award-winning brands
20 years’ franchising experience
78% of franchisees operating over five years
287 high-street offices
20,000+ new instructions a year
45,000 managed properties
It’s simple. People need somewhere to live, the property chain is in constant motion and the real estate industry will never disappear. It also helps that the UK property market is one of the most in-demand industries in the world, so there is plenty of opportunity to earn your living from it.
What if I haven't got an estate agency background?
This is completely fine - our network consists of businessmen and women who come from a wide range of business backgrounds. We'll teach you the basics - all we require from you is ambition and a desire to learn about the industry.
How can I get involved?
You have a choice - take over an existing business, or start your own.
Each method has its own benefits and will require differing levels of funding and expertise - get in touch to find out more.
How much money will I be expected to invest?
Our franchise fee is £18,500 and includes a comprehensive launch package. Any extra cost of investment will depend on where you franchise and the scale of the business you want to run.
What kind of income can I expect my franchise to make?
A typical franchise has a turnover of £300k by year three and in excess of £600k by year five.
A well-run franchise with an ambitious owner can break through the £1m a year barrier; talk to us to find out what it takes to reach the very top.
However, an investment with us is not just about money. You can build a new life for yourself, try your hand in a new market and enjoy the flexibility of owning your own business, and we can’t put a price on that.
