Building a letting agency business

I sold my first letting agency business in 2006. In just 12 years my wife and I had taken the business from a standing start to managing 1,000 properties.

We have been investing into property for 30 years so property management makes sense to us, we knew what we wanted as landlords so we built our business model on that.

Following a lockout clause we decided to go back into lettings in 2009 and launched the Go Direct Lettings franchise in January 2012.

The business now manages 400 properties.

This time we wanted to do this slightly differently and to create a National brand by helping others to replicate our business model.

We now have five further franchise offices and and plan to grow the network rapidly based our on proven model for success.

We find that people with a passion for property become the most successful letting agents.
