Martin and Co has been awarded “Franchisor of the Year” at the Negotiator Awards. This national recognition confirms this UK wide lettings brand as a key player in both the property industry and the franchise arena.
Martin & Co are no strangers to winning awards having entered this award category twice and winning on both occasions.
Martin & Co has 170 plus offices UK-wide and the UK leading lettings brand has developed particularly over the last three years – with a dedicated brand for London and student homes being rolled out successfully alongside an new on-line agent franchise proposition with 6 new on-line launches completing before the end of 2011.
Scott Burgess, Franchise Director commented: “It is a tribute to the hard work, dedication, and passion of all staff, but more than that it is a reflection of the proven systems and process already in place, after all that’s what franchising is all about to enable our letting businesses to prosper even in these competitive times”.
The franchise network have let 8,000 properties this year that we have never let before, combined with our strong web presence and investment in on-line technologies is really paying dividends.
Most recently an already successful independent letting agent in Gainsborough, North Lincolnshire trading under the Sargents brand and established for 20 years identified their need for additional operational, business and marketing support for their ambitious growth plans and turned to a Martin & Co franchise as the right solution for their business.”This franchise brand has set new records this year with over £3 million in group fee income in October and delving deeper into the figures Martin & Co is on track to achieve £36 million in group fee income in 2012.
In a highly competitive market the strength of a brand is key, and the challenges of the downturn in the economic climate and keeping a business afloat can be a tall order, but achieving growth and a money-spinning business demands a strong business model.
With over 15 years as a franchise Martin & Co are on the right road to continue their development with launches scheduled already in 2012 for new on-line agents, new franchises and company shops.
