Having vastly grown and developed for over 22 years, Belvoir is now the UK’s largest property franchise on the high street with over 300 offices nationwide. Each of our offices is managed and owned by local entrepreneurs who are passionate and ambitious about a career in the property industry. When joining Belvoir you are becoming part of a nationally recognised brand.
Trustworthy, compliant to the highest standard and consistent, our reputation is very important to us and this is portrayed in training our franchisees to the highest level within the industry.
Our opportunity is built on the principles of specialism, quality and customer care, ensuring we provide reputable lettings, sales and property management services to all of our clients. Many of our offices are also offering a prosperous sales service with many more planning to come on board. As the network continues to grow, our franchise led acquisitions are becoming increasingly popular using the Belvoir Assisted Acquisitions Scheme. This provides you with the opportunity to expand and grow your business by completing the purchase of well-established lettings and estate agencies in the local area.
Belvoir are full members of the British Franchise Association (bfa) and previously Belvoir founder Mike Goddard spent three years as chairman of the bfa. We are also members of SAFEagent and our offices sign up to third party client money protection.
With the Belvoir Franchise, you join a tried and tested business model and with this you also get the brand, structure, support, training and all the business tools that are required to help you succeed. This means that you do not need any previous experience within the industry, just a keen interest, entrepreneurial outlook and a desire to succeed.
You will have access to extensive support including a dedicated Business Development Manager (BDM) to ensure you have full support, training and guidance from the start of your journey.

Before opening your office, franchisees must attend a three-week intensive training course conducted by both internal and external trainers. Over the course, you will be trained in all areas to help you set up, run and manage your business including an in-depth look at legal compliance. At the end of the three weeks, you will be ready to start your journey with Belvoir!
Our recruitment team will assist you with finding an office within your territory, whilst your Business Development Manager will visit you and call regularly.
