Do not read this article

It's irresistable, isn't it. You can't help yourself. Despite the warning of the title you still decided to read this article - but why? Probably because it was different to most of the other articles in the magazine and that difference is the exact reason why Gordon Adamson decided to invest in Northwood, as Andy Goodson explains

Gordon Adamson opened his Northwood franchise in Carlisle on June 25th this year having left a career as a national sales manager with BT. The one reason why Gordon chose Northwood was because it was different and stood out amongst all the other property related franchises.

Having been involved in sales all his life Gordon realised the importance of having a unique product or a unique selling point and Northwood has just that with its brilliant Platinum Scheme. Coupling that with the quality and professionalism of its marketing literature and strong corporate branding meant Northwood's franchise opportunity stands head and shoulders above all the other property related franchise opportunities.

Gordon and his team's early success was evident as, after being open for just two months, he had rented out a staggering 47 properties with a further 33 properties for sale on his books.

Apart from having a 'USP', Northwood offers three services - lettings, estate agency and financial services, which enable franchisees to grow their businesses much faster than those franchises that only offer a single product. Northwood has nearly 50 offices open nationwide with a with a further 11 already at various stages of opening so you can see that its target of 100 within the next four or five years is very achievable. Gordon also complimented the great team at the Northwood franchise office who organised all the equipment for the turnkey opening, which left him free to concentrate on the comprehensive six week training programme with the two full-time in-house trainers.

When I asked Gordon where he expected to be at the end of his first trading year he answered '400 per cent ahead of my business plan!' At first I thought he was joking but soon realised he is deadly serious!
