Our recent testimonial from Brinder Bains, a former electrical contractor and now franchisee of Richmond reflects the thoroughness of our training. In contrast, the most recent addition to our network, our Ilford franchisee Jeya Ruban, has several years of experience in both letting and managing properties.
Having just completed his training course with Redstones, we asked Ruban for his initial feedback, particularly on the technological systems which are essential for the efficient running of a lettings agency:
Here’s his response:
"Whilst it is difficult for me to write a testimonial as an experienced landlord who has been letting and managing properties over several years where I learnt the entire process “the hard way”, I found the entire process very encouraging to commit into building the new franchise.
The management systems in place are excellent. I particularly found the back office system useful as it has built in functionality for each and every aspect of property management."
Ruban also has extensive experience in financial services and his own substantial property portfolio. His Ilford branch of Redstones will open early in the New Year and we’ll be bringing news of his launch through this blog.
As well as our state-of-the art-technology that supports both our front and back office systems, Redstones’ groundbreaking expertise takes advantage of all that online marketing has to offer.
