4. What conditions have to be fulfilled by a potential franchisee to get a licence?
The current franchise partners of CENTURY 21 have come partly from reputable real estate agencies or from highly experienced agents and partly from successful people from other industries, such as multinational corporation managers, who wanted to build their own company under the head of a global company. A condition for obtaining a CENTURY 21 licence is therefore previous success, professionalism, and further growth potential. CENTURY 21 selects only such people who want to work hard on themselves and who know that it is not a question of months to build an efficient and prospective company. Many heavy demands, including financial ones, are put on CENTURY 21 franchisees. Each of the franchisees has to pay the initial franchise fee and have funds for starting to run a real estate agency, which has to meet exacting international criteria for operating a real estate agency under the CENTURY 21 brand, at their disposal. To get through all successfully, they have to undergo a large number of professional training and practical training including consultations in the field. Agencies receive support from the headquarters in activities that are connected with the sale of properties. It is also advantageous to provide them centrally, which is a quicker, cheaper, and more satisfactory way. In addition to the trademark and its reputation, this means especially education and training, marketing, providing necessary IT technologies, and of course many advantageous commercial conditions with CENTURY 21 suppliers.
