Northwood’s Unique Guaranteed Platinum Rental Income Scheme has really given us an edge. Landlords love the risk free benefits it provides and it’s tremendously profitable for us too. It’s a win win! Ron made the life changing decision to buy his Northwood franchise at the age of 46, having spent his entire career working for a large corporate relocation firm many years of which at senior management level.
“I was very ambitious and hugely driven, but the further I progressed up the ladder the less happy I became. I realised that I wasn’t getting enough out of my job and that despite my hard work I wasn’t really reaping the benefits.
“Two former business colleagues of mine had bought Northwood Franchises and I had watched each of them really develop their businesses. I knew that’s what I should be doing and quickly.
“I did question whether I should be setting up a business on my own, but having worked for an internationally-recognised company for so long I was only too aware of the value that a strong brand brings to a business. Northwood has that brand quality and integrity so it made absolute sense to me to try to be a part of it.
“I have been delighted with how the first year has gone. With any new business, you set realistic targets for the first year as you build the brand in the local market. At the end of our first year in Dundee we have not only exceeded all these targets, but have also already built a high street brand, which is instantly recognisable throughout the Dundee and Angus property rental market.
“Through our first year of trading we have enjoyed a gross margin of around 33% and are looking to continue, or improve upon this, as the business expands. I realise how lucky I have been setting up and establishing a new business in the midst of a recession, but fortunately the rental market has been hardly affected, which has been a huge advantage.”
