We've found your perfect franchise. Us.

We don't want to be arrogant but we believe it's true

Aside from offering a service that sets us apart from the competition. we are proud of the fact that our franchise fee includes everything needed to set up a new office and run it successfully ongoing. From conducting feasibility studies up front right through to fully setting the office up (literally!), we guide you every step of the way. And the assistance doesn't stop there – our experienced in-field Operations Directors are fully backed by the team at the Franchise Office who provide a comprehensive range of financial, IT, Legal and marketing advice, support and resources.

Feedback from our franchisees helps to constantly improve on the winning Northwood formula. We have number of steering groups which franchisees sit on and an online forum where all 400+ people in the network can share advice & ask questions.

Northwood is the only Estate agent to have advertised nationally on TV (you may have seen our ad on Channel 4 in January & February) and we have been running as a franchised business since 1998. That means anyone purchasing a Northwood Franchise is getting an established, recession-proof & well-known brand. Get in touch and judge for yourself if we are your perfect franchise.

The secret to our success – Guaranteed Rent
The Guaranteed Rent service involves paying the landlord a fixed monthly rent that is lower that 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

Franchisee Online Network

Each Northwood employee (400+ people) has use of the online franchise website which hosts a comprehensive range of operations manuals, latest news, marketing resources and performance statistics. One of the most popular sections is the “franchisee forum” where people share ideas, discuss issues and ask for advice. It’s the ideal format, particularly for new franchisees, to benefit from the experiences of others and stay connected with the wider network.

A Top-Ranking Website

We have a comprehensive website that would-be tenants, landlords, buyers and sellers can easily find and get all the information that they need. The website is constantly being developed. Key Lettings words are Search Engine Optimised (SEO) for each office to ensure that Northwood is at the top of the list when people look for letting agents in their area.

Franchisee Input

For any business the secret to success is the ability to adapt and change. At Northwood we have a number of steering groups in which franchisees help to explore and trial new business opportunities to ensure Northwood remains ahead of the game. Being a Northwood franchisee really does mean benefiting from the support of the many.
