Operational Efficiency

We have continued to develop relationships with key suppliers in our sector and are now looking beyond to other sectors and their suppliers. We continue to ensure that all our traditional brands are on common platforms and to invest in developing our digital marketing capabilities.

Income Diversification

We aim to increase our earnings from property sales and financial services by leveraging the estate agency credentials acquired with Xperience together with the know-how acquired through the acquisition of EweMove. However, the Group’s core focus will continue to be its lettings business.

Franchisee Recruitment/Expansion

The recruitment of franchisees for new territories and for resales of existing territories is central to maintaining the health and vitality of the network as well as achieving our network aims. At the same time, we are assisting franchisees to expand through acquisitions in existing territories and to grow into new territories, often by buying out neighbouring franchisees.

The Property Franchise Group has an experienced Board who are committed to the development of the business in a socially responsible way.

The Board is responsible for the overall performance of the Group, which includes the broad strategic direction, development and control of the Group.
