“Franchising is a method for expanding a business and distributing goods and services through a licensing relationship. In franchising, franchisors (a person or company that grants the licence to a third party for the conducting of a business under their marks) not only specify the products and services that will be offered by the franchisees (a person or company who is granted the licence to do business under the trademark and trade name by the franchisor), but also provide them with an operating system, brand and support.”
One of the biggest benefits of the franchise model is being able to operate under a recognisable brand with an existing customer base.
You will take part in a comprehensive training programme, so you are completely confident with running the business. You will have access to an operations manual and attend conferences and networking events, where you can share experiences with other franchisees Due to receiving this training, you don’t always need to have previous experience in the sector or running a business to be accepted onto the programme. This makes the franchise model ideally suited to individuals who want to follow their passions and enter a different sector.
The wonderful thing about the franchise model is that you never feel alone. The minute you have a query or are unsure about how to deal with something, you can simply ask the franchisor or the franchise support team. However, you are still in control of your business. The franchise model provides the independence of small business ownership but with the support and other benefits of a large business network.
The franchise will provide you with proven tools for attracting and retaining customers. Lots of franchises even have a centralised sales and marketing team that generates fantastic campaigns that strengthen the entire brand, and therefore your franchise business.
As part of the Franchise package you and your team will receive a full Operations Manual explaining in detail how to run a Real Estate business. This Operations Manual is updated regularly after feedback from Staff and changes in Leglislation.
To run the day to day business of a Real Estate business you need a CRM system. This is provided to you from Day 1 of your Franchise. It will handle listings, viewings, advertising ofthe properties, staff calendars and lots more. Continuous improvements are made to it after Head Office and Franchisee feedback.
