Real Estate is a challenging and highly competitive business. However, exciting growth opportunities remain accessible to those who are prepared to seize the moment. Having the right partners supporting you can make the difference between success and failure.
Newcomers and existing smaller operations sometimes struggle to keep up with the marketing muscle and systems of the sector’s big players. Joining a franchise network is certainly a step in the right direction.
Unlike some traditional property franchises, CHOPROP’s franchise business model is designed to put its franchisees first by offering them a bigger slice of the cake - with a 95% income benefit to its franchise trade partners; a 4% royalty fee and 1% marketing and support fund - are the only dues that are payable to the franchisor. This gives our franchise opportunity the edge over other real estate franchise offerings.
Our mantra from the start has been: “Ultimately leaving people better off than when we find them”.
The CHOPROP brand is driven by a team of service driven professionals who are serious about service delivery and Purposefully Passionate About Property.
So, why not join the Multi-Billion Rand Property Industry with an International Multi-Award Winning Brand, CHOPROP!

We at CHOPROP Franchising (Pty) Ltd strive to build lasting business relationships with our franchisees in a dynamic business environment for mutual benefit. This requires transparency and mutual trust. To set the ball rolling, we offer the following information:
These involve the entire range of real estate services including but not limited to the following:
During boom times, the real estate sector attracts large numbers of self-styled operators. They possess neither qualification, skills or the resources needed to offer the level of service property sellers, buyers and owners expect. During these periods, when demand outstrips supply, these sub-standard performers may get by, but only until the inevitable downturn comes. At that point, they are forced to exit the sector and look for something else that offers “easy money”.
We have built our business by delivering service excellence with passion and consistency and we plan to keep it that way. Our reputation places us among the top performers when business is good while securing a reasonable flow of business during quieter periods. Consider this – business may slow down when the boom is over, but will never dry up completely. People will always need a roof over their heads and we have the expertise and infrastructure to place it there.
It has taken us years to reach the position of strength we find ourselves in today. Our franchisees benefit directly – from the day they join us, they have access to the experience we have accumulated and the reputation we have build.
It is a fundamental principle of business format franchising that the franchisor’s sustained success depends on the combined success of the bulk of its franchisees.
Having provided you with salient details regarding this opportunity, the time has come to focus on you, our prospective franchisee.
