Belvoir Lettings - 10 years on and the only way is up!
This year, Belvoir Lettings celebrates its 10th year in franchising. In this relatively short period of time Belvoir has grown to be the largest specialist letting franchise in the UK with some 90 offices in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Tapping into the buoyant and growing lettings and property management market Belvoir has stuck to its basic principles of customer care, specialisation and professionalism to achieve this enviable position in the marketplace.
Chief Executive Mike Goddard looks back on a successful 2005, which saw the Belvoir Group grow by nearly 40 per cent. 'The lettings market continues to expand as the Government recognises the importance of the Private Rental Sector in providing an affordable housing solution to an increasingly mobile workforce. I can see no let up in this situation, indeed the Government has predicted an increase in the number of let properties from the current 2.3 million to over 3.5 million in the next few years.'
In 2006 Belvoir will rapidly pass the 100 offices mark and to achieve this it is looking for high quality franchisees throughout the UK with or without previous lettings experience.
Recruitment Manager Julie Taylor adds: 'We are limited only by the number and quality of potential franchisees - with more than 300 territories still to fill we are embarking on a major recruiting campaign this year so that we can offer potential business people this exciting opportunity with Belvoir in a buoyant marketplace.'
