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 that grows on average 8% p.a. and continues to do so.
However, each brand in The Property Franchise Group offers a sales service, offering multiple revenue streams within the UK property market.
The Group’s network consists of nearly 300 offices spanning the length and breadth of the UK, encompassing five established brands: CJ Hole (south west), Ellis & Co (London), Martin & Co (national), Parkers (south east) and Whitegates (north west and Midlands).
The franchise has been in operation since 1985 and franchise opportunities are available as either ‘cold’ starts, 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 do not have any company-owned offices.

Daily Life of 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.
