I bought my first franchise over 20 years ago and at that time had no experience in Estate Agency. Without the help and support of the Franchisor I doubt if I would have survived the recession of the early 1990’s. In subsequent years I have been allowed the freedom and encouragement to expand my business within the franchise framework. Without question, the brand together with the networking of the offices alone attracts enough extra business to far outweigh the cost of the franchise fee. The expertise and enthusiasm of our Head Office together with all the support, knowledge, marketing and statistical back up, will allow any individual to feel they are embraced into a more stable environment within our tough but rewarding industry.

Such a strong cohesive family of franchisee’s, after more than 20 years of successful trading I have never looked back, neither will you
Franchisee of Welwyn Garden City Office
We completed on the franchise on April 1st 2000, April fools possibly, but I can honestly say that I wish we had done it earlier. Country Properties is a unique company full of different personalities and age groups from all walks of life. Next year will be our 10th anniversary.
Franchisee of Letchworth Garden City Office
Being part of Country Properties gives me the comfort that I know that I have eighteen other offices supporting my two offices and visa versa. In addition I have a highly motivated Head Office continuously creating new initiatives and marketing products to move my business forward.
Franchisee of Knebworth and Welwyn Offices since 1985
Having now run the business for over three years and expanded into three franchises during a very difficult ‘credit crunch’ 2008, I have no regrets about choosing the Country Properties franchise. In many ways you have the best of both worlds - It feels like you are running your own independent business (and autonomy is important to me personally) yet you have the support of Head Office and other franchisees when you need it. I feel part of a close group of self minded individuals, part of a good team whist maintaining my business autonomy and independence.
