Not only is Century 21 UK part of the world’s largest estate agency brand, which has 8,800 offices across 81 countries, it is also owned by multi award winning property services company, SDL Group.
As a result of being part of this national property services company, Century 21 UK is in a unique position to offer other franchise opportunities at a competitive rate.
The most recent opportunity looks at providing those considering becoming a Century 21 UK franchisee with the chance to become an SDL property partner for no additional cost - perfect for those looking to create an instant business portfolio.
What is SDL property partners?
Created and launched in 2017, SDL Property Partners is the first property management franchising scheme.
Even though the scheme is in its infancy, it is going from strength to strength, as it currently has 17 franchise territories, with 3,000 units under its management throughout the network.
In 2018, only a year into the new venture, the company was shortlisted as Innovator of the Year at the Property Week Management All Star Awards.
With all this achieved in a mere 18 months, there is certainly a promising future for the company, which wants to share its current success by providing a platform for budding entrepreneurs who are passionate about revolutionising the customer’s experience of property services.
Support and additional income streams
As a result of being part of a property services company, both Century 21 UK and SDL Property Partners are able to offer the required support to all its franchisees.
This ranges from the initial set up and launch of their business, to benefiting from the wide array of skills and expertise of the SDL Group central offices, including marketing, IT and compliance.
Franchisees also benefit from continuous in the field mentorship and training, which ensures each business flourishes.
Century 21 UK franchisees have the added benefit of the Century 21 UK training academy, where not only can franchisees benefit from first rate in class training and ongoing development support, they are also given the tools to help recruit and train their own staff, ensuring all Century 21 representatives are equipped with the knowledge they need to deliver their service the ‘Century 21’ way.
Along with the opportunity to become an SDL property partner, being part of the SDL Group provides the added benefit of more income streams compared to most high street agents. Additional streams include sales lettings, auctions, block and estate management, surveying and mortgages.
Chris Summers, head of franchising at SDL Group, says: “Being an employee isn’t for everyone, so being able to provide a platform in which up and coming entrepreneurs can be given a boost from not only one of the UK’s fastest growing estate agencies, but from an established property services company, is fantastic.
“I am looking forward to welcoming talented and driven entrepreneurs who share our vision to revolutionise the property services industry.”
