Northwood the proper property people

Our property people

With a national network of nearly eighty offices and a business that has been growing at 20% year on year, it’s never been a better time to be a Northwood franchisee. Established in Portsmouth in 1995, we have always prided ourselves on being the proper property people. To this day, we make it our priority to only work with straight-talking professionals who are genuinely interested in guiding and helping every type of customer who walks through the door.

If you are a committed, adaptable and driven person looking to take control of your destiny but backed with the full support of a successful and established franchise, then you have come to the right place.

We are currently looking to expand in the North East and are particularly interested in finding franchise owners for Barnsley, Bradford, Halifax, Harrogate, Huddersfield, Leeds West and Wakefield.

The secret to our success – Guaranteed Rent

The Guaranteed Rent service involves paying the landlord a fixed monthly rent that is lower than the full market rate but removes all the risk and hassles of letting. The property is then sub-let to tenants at the full market rate and the difference between the two is our margin.

It’s an offering that sets us apart and allows our franchisees to earn double that of our closest competitors
