As the UK’s largest independent estate agency franchise, we pride ourselves on the support we give our network. A franchise with Hunters is not just a business relationship, it’s a partnership. Each of our Partners have a dedicated Account Manager who work with the branches to achieve their targets and aspirations. We also have quarterly Regional Meetings which allow all the Partners to meet up and discuss how we can achieve more together. Having vast experiences of operating multiple sites – we help our Partners with multi-office management, expanding their office territories at low cost through our award-winning Personal Agent model, providing full training and recognised industry qualification for all our Partners staff at no extra cost & allowing room to grow with additional territories. Our Account Managers are hugely experienced and will work with each business to truly make a difference.
Staying up to date with the latest legislation and compliance is also an important area the Account Managers will cover with our Partners. With imminent changes due to the estate agency laws, it is vital that all estate agency businesses comply with all changes. Often however changes like this can take up significant time for an independent business, so knowing this is all taken care of by the franchisor allows the Partners to do what they are best at……selling and letting property!
It clearly doesn’t stop there, all branch staff need training and coaching which is also provided by the Account Managers. The training consists of a mix between classroom, in branch and field based training covering numerous topics including Induction, The Law and Valuing.
So if you are thinking of a franchise, make sure you look at all of the fundamental components. Too often support is left to one side and interested individuals focus on technology and marketing and whilst this is important (you should see what we have to offer), do consider how your franchisor will support you.
