About Century 21 UK

Century 21 UK is a global estate agency organisation, currently operating in over 81 countries across the globe, with 8,000 offices. Since the company expanded into the UK in 2005, it has become one of the fastest-growing property organisations in the country, and continues to grow and expand the opportunities available to its franchise partners.

The company is a part of the SDL group, through which it offers a variety of national services, including property surveying, risk management, insurance brokerage, and property management. Century 21 UK was recently recognised as the 58th fastest-growing business in the country, making it a compelling and attractive brand to join as a franchise owner.

Why Choose Century‌ ‌21 UK?‌ ‌

Max, Flex or Solo – Choose the Right Franchise Opportunity for You There are three different Century 21 franchise models you can choose from:

The Max model will involve you setting up your own brick-and-mortar agency in an area expected to have a high amount of footfall on a regular basis. If you pick this option, your new enterprise will get the maximum amount of exposure. As a result of this, your customer base will grow far more quickly. This is the most expensive of the three models.

The Flex model is less of an investment than the Max model but still provides you with a space to meet and greet potential customers. You’ll still be based out of an agency, but just not in a high-profile area. You’ll be less visible but you’ll have more money to spend on marketing.

The Solo model will effectively allow you to operate as a self-employed real estate agent. You’d be entirely home based and provide services online with the support of Century 21. This is the most low cost choice as you wouldn’t need to invest in a physical agency or handle any of the related expenses such as monthly rent payments.

But remember, whichever you choose, you’ll still benefit from the Century 21 brand. The company has a strong reputation and its instantly recognisable trade name will instantly attract customers to you.

Training‌ ‌and‌ ‌Support‌ from Century‌ ‌21 UK

Once training is complete and you are ready to launch, Century 21 UK’s franchise team will also help set up the physical business, with assistance in finding the right business premises, and give advice on refurbishment, to ensure you are in line with the brand’s image and style. They will also help you recruit sales staff, set up technology, and provide a tailored branded website for you. Staff are also offered a free induction course, to ensure they are fully up to speed with how the business operates.

Century 21 UK will also work with you to plan a launch event in your area, including harnessing press coverage to increase awareness of the brand across the geographic territory.
