With a market leading proposition in the property sector we are the only property franchise to specialise in student lettings offering a unique proposition running alongside the traditional estate and letting agency including professional lettings, property management and residential sales.

Franchise Overview

Our branches are a mixture of company-owned branches in the East Midlands and over 20 franchised businesses nationwide in university and residential territories. 

We have identified many areas for growth in the UK that are available on an exclusive basis as Nicholas Humphreys continues to expand its network and brand presence of which we are able to provide market research packs to suitable candidates please ask if your territory is available.

We are looking for franchisees who are driven, resilient and looking for a new challenge ready to thrive under the advice and guidance of our committed and experienced franchise team. The majority of our franchisees start their franchise within a serviced office so a shop front is not a necessity.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

We have set up the franchise proposition so that the franchisee spends the majority of their time fee earning and client facing, leaving the accounting side to be taken care of externally and a system in place to reduce administration. As a Nicholas Humphreys franchisee the day-to-day life is very varied and will involve diverse activities including attracting new landlords and vendors, carrying out property viewings with students and/or professionals, conducting inspections and instructing contractors.

You will carry out property appraisals, input properties on the website, oversee rental payments and liaise with local media. You will be building and developing new and existing relationships all of which is practiced within our franchise launch period and continued throughout the life as a franchisee.
