Belvoir: Award winning franchise

In his first year of owning a Belvoir franchise, Peter Atkinson has been hailed as one of the UK's franchisees of the year. Belvoir Recruitment Manager Julie Taylor explains

Peter Atkinson's first year with Belvoir has been record breaking! He bought the Sleaford franchise as a going concern and tripled the turnover in his first year. He was awarded the 'Newcomer of the Year' Award at the Belvoir High Achievers Award presentations in December 2005 and has since gone on to win 3rd place in the British Franchise Association's National Franchisee of the Year Awards 2006 (with 34,000 franchisees eligible for consideration!).

Peter's vision for his future is very clear - he wants to double his business over the next two years and take on more staff to allow him to switch to a four-day working week.

When buying a Belvoir franchise you are investing in a business that has a proven record of success. We are very careful to ensure that franchisees understand that we need them to replicate the business methodology to ensure growth and success across the network. We are looking for people who are ready to go into business for themselves with the attitude and commitment to succeed. We can give you the knowledge and teach you the skills you need to do the job, but the will to succeed must come from within.

Our business is very much about people and our aim is 'to provide every community in the UK with a professional lettings service which embraces the principles of quality and customer care'. Without good communication skills and a desire to please, good customer service is impossible to deliver.

If you see a future in property, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I have what it takes to be a Belvoir franchisee?
  • Am I ready for the challenge of running my own successful business?
