The Property Franchise Group is a multi-brand estate agency operation that provides the services of traditional sales, residential lettings and property management. The Group’s core focus has been on lettings, dealing with a private rented sector however, each brand in The Property Franchise Group is able to offer a sales service and financial services, offering multiple revenue streams within the UK property market.

The Group’s network consists of nearly 500 offices spanning the length and breadth of the UK, encompassing six established brands: CJ Hole (south west), Ellis & Co (London), Martin & Co (national), Parkers (south east) Whitegates (north west and Midlands) and Hunters (national).

The franchise has been in operation since 1985 and franchise opportunities are available as either ‘cold’ starts (area dependant), resales of existing offices or rebrands of agencies that are currently not part of the Group.

Sixty percent of the Group’s franchises have been operating for over five years and we operate some company owned offices under the Hunters brand.


Training covers all aspects of running an estate agency with a focus on generating business, progressing sales and lettings, and marketing.

We also ensure that a new Franchise owner is trained on the latest software systems and they have the opportunity to have training in a brand with a Mentor Franchisee.

Franchisees will also have access to the Group’s internal Training Academy helping them reach their specific needs and continue training for their staff.

What will I do as a Franchisee

As a Franchisee you will to be office-based in a prominent high street location with a member of staff from day 1. Once your business is up and running, you will meet with potential landlords and investors, manage & grow your team and will deal with day-to-day property management issues.

Depending on your success you may have an office manager in place and focus on expanding the business through acquistions or with additional offices in your territory.
