Become a property franchisee
It's time to begin...
If you think a sales and lettings franchise opportunity is up your street, then we’d love to meet you. There are a variety of ways in which you can make your property franchise dream a reality, and they all begin with a discovery day. Here’s what you can expect…
Property franchise discovery days
Personalised one-to-one sessions at our central office in Grantham give you the opportunity to learn what it takes to run a sales and lettings franchise business under Belvoir, Newton Fallowell, Northwood, Lovelle or Nicholas Humphrey's brands. It’s a chance for us to get to know you and your ambitions and make sure the opportunity is the right fit for you. We’ll identify suitable opportunities, potential locations and give you a chance to meet the Belvoir Group franchise support teams.
Property franchise support
We pride ourselves on the support we offer our property franchisees, and it begins here. After your discovery day, we encourage you to get in touch with other Belvoir, Newton Fallowell, Northwood, Lovelle or Nicholas Humphrey's property franchisees. After all, they’ve been through the same process and can offer you invaluable advice that draws from their own experiences.
Should you wish to pursue a sales and lettings franchise opportunity with us, we’ll match you with one of our Business Development Mentors (BDM). They will always be on-hand for guidance and support, no matter where you are on your property franchise journey. You will also be able to pay a deposit to secure your chosen opportunity.
We’ll give you the tools to allow you to conduct your own thorough due diligence and market research. You’ll spend time with your Business Development Mentor who will ensure your knowledge is robust and that you set realistic predictions for your business. Armed with the bigger picture, you’ll have the foundations for your marketing plan.
By now, you’ll have a solid understanding of the marketplace and the potential your franchise opportunity with Belvoir, Newton Fallowell, Northwood, Lovelle or Nicholas Humphrey's presents. With the help of our central support teams, you will have your business plan, financial forecast and funding in place. You’ll have even identified a premises and have a plan for the refit if required. Once your plans are approved with central office, we can formally welcome you into the Belvoir Group fold.
We know that starting a business has its challenges, and we’re here to help you overcome any hurdles. We want you to have the training and support that enables you to take your sales and lettings franchise from triumph to triumph. Our four-week training course will reinforce how the Belvoir Group brands operate, and help you find ways to stand out from your competitors. It’ll get you off on the right foot for when your sales and lettings agency opens its doors to the public.
Routes to ownership
Our property franchisees come not only from a variety of backgrounds, with varying levels of experience – often not in the property sector – but they also have differing financial positions, so it’s important we match you to an opportunity that suits your individual circumstances. And we can be very flexible with that.
When it comes to financing your new sales and lettings business, some are able to provide the full capital required to purchase their franchise outright, while others may prefer more flexibility for financing their new venture. So we’ll start with a conversation – once we understand your financial position, we will tailor an ownership plan for you. Often this means putting you in touch with lenders and financial partners that we have longstanding relationships with, to enable you to raise the capital needed to start your business – whether that be acquiring a pre-established Belvoir, Newton Fallowell, Northwood, Lovelle or Nicholas Humphrey's branded business, taking over a competitor brand or opening a new branch altogether.
