Owning a CENTURY 21 franchise allows you to benefit from unrivalled global brand exposure. In 2015, and for the seventeenth year in succession, a Millward Brown customer survey identified the CENTURY 21 brand as “the most recognized name in real estate”. The CENTURY 21 brand has featured in Hollywood movies such as Evan Almighty (2007) and What to expect when you’re expecting (2012) and also has been advertised at huge global sporting events such as the Olympics (2012), US Open (2013), Superbowl (2013) and FIFA World Cup (2014).
This brand exposure is significant because as an owner of a CENTURY 21 UK Franchise you would be brand of choice for many overseas clients who will often opt for a brand they recognise and trust from their own countries. CENTURY 21 has a strong presence across the Americas, the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, which is where many of these overseas buyers originate from and we know overseas investment in the UK housing stock is very high.
Everything we do as your franchisor is about helping you to win more listings, enhance the service you are able to offer your clients and ultimately, make your CENTURY 21 business a success.
We can help you set up your business, search for a suitable location, recruit the right people and provide comprehensive training. In total, we deliver 1,500 days’ worth of training per year.
In regards to launching your business we work closely with you to ensure you create a great impression in your local market place with local press coverage, marketing and a fantastic launch event. Our Franchise Development Directors are your key support contacts and are there to help you get the best out of your business.
Our dedicated in-house team can provide you with the marketing materials to boost your presence locally as well as creating bespoke marketing initiatives for your franchise. We’ve negotiated discounts that enable our offices to list on Rightmove & Zoopla so your properties will have maximum visibility online. We know how important digital marketing is and ensure we continue to enhance SEO, PPC & Social campaigns.
In addition, we invest significantly in brand marketing. This year we have had perimeter boards at International cricket grounds; Lords and Trent Bridge and also advertised during the Six Nations Rugby & Autumn Internationals.
