Century 21 UK has launched a new estate agency business model designed to help the thousands of people in the property sector whose jobs have been impacted by the pandemic, particularly those facing redundancy.
Century 21 Solo has been designed to offer a viable business option for property professionals currently facing job uncertainty. Under the Solo model, self-employed agents can work from home and share a territory with other Century 21 agents. With no up-front fees and portal listing costs also covered, self-employed agents can retain up to 75 per cent of all income generated from their sales pipeline. The Century 21 Solo option is one of three new models being launched by Century 21 UK on 27 December 2020, which will be one of the first international arms of Century 21 to introduce this new way of working.
Joining Century 21 Solo is Century 21 Flex, which allows franchisees to set their own working hours and without the fixed costs of a high street office.
The third option is Century 21 Max, which is the most comprehensive of the three options and follows the more traditional role of high street estate agency franchising.
All three models benefit from a Century 21 UK support package, which includes business development and strategy planning, property listings from the get-go, software and the backing of the brand’s in-house marketing and operational teams. Alongside this is the support of setting up multiple income streams with auctions, property management and referral schemes with mortgages and surveyors.
