What people are saying...

What are the benefits?

Whether you plan to start your letting agents or estate agency full-time, part-time, you will be making a great choice in choosing one of our Business Packages to help you.

The combination of practical information, operational systems, trade contacts and our best support staff that we provide, all backed by our extensive industry experience, is available elsewhere only in the form of an expensive estate agent franchise.

Whether you’re starting a letting agents or starting an estate agency, these franchises not only involve high entry and commission costs, but also severely restrict your independence.

So here are some benefits of our approach to consider –

  • The business can be run part-time or full-time.  Depending on your circumstances – unlike an expensive letting agent franchise, it’s entirely up to you to decide how much time you wish to devote to the business – you’re in complete control.
  • No special premises and no staff necessary.  The business is ideally suited for one person to run from the comfort and convenience of their own home, thus avoiding the considerable overheads involved in renting an office.
  • Rapid start-up and immediate cash-flow. If you follow our advice you can be up and running in a couple of weeks. Unlike most other businesses, you do not suffer from cash-flow problems, because if you set up a letting agency you retain your fees at source – we show you how.
  • No previous business experience or qualifications necessary.  All the necessary know-how is included in our letting agent training and our estate agent training. All required training and documentation is provided.
  • Our Telephone Support Line ensures that experienced advice is just a phone call away if required.
  • Excellent earning potential. You can realistically build to an income in excess of several £1,000’s a month within the first year.
    Complete independence
  • Unlike a franchisee, you’ll trade under your own chosen name, and have complete control over your business. You retain 100% of your profits, regardless of how much you earn.
  • A well established and growing market. The rental and sales market is growing year on year, with many factors having a positive effect on both supply and demand.
  • No selling involved.  No need to be a salesperson, you’re dealing only with people who need your service.
  • Reliable income even when you’re on holiday. Commissions from managed properties come in automatically every month, your income increasing with each property added.
  • A professional service with a respectable image. Residential property management is now seen as a specialised and essential service within the property sector.
  • A valuable business to sell.  If you decide to sell your business it should command a healthy price. The going rate is about 1.5 times annual turnover, i.e. an average 100 managed properties business should fetch around £200,000.
