Testimonials from Redstones Franchisees
Signing up to the Redstones franchise package was a complete no-brainer for me, after meeting Manjit and the team at the Head office in Walsall. I was impressed with the ‘up to date’ technology and software being used and the fast, professional, efficient service provided. The training was of a very high quality and the expertise and enthusiasm of our Head Office together with all the support, knowledge, marketing and statistical back up, has given me the skills and confidence required to go out there and win the business!
Mr. Singh, STAFFORD
My wife and I have always harboured the desire to run an efficient, client focussed property management business and for us Redstones ticks all the boxes and much more. We spent over 15 months speaking to various organisations and Franchisors within this field and engaged in many meetings however no-one offered what Redstones could in terms of meeting our aspirations to be a client led Letting and Management business. Redstones left no stone unturned in responding to our various questions relating to marketing, brand awareness and future developments. Manjit and his team are so thorough they ‘stood out from the crowd’ – by some way ! Saying this ‘people buy from people’ and we bought into the Redstones way because of their enthusiasm, vision and desire to be the UK’s premier Letting & Management agency. In the end it was a straight forward decision especially with their competitive package – you really don’t need a high street premise
Mr & Mrs Gidda, Telford
Today more and more people are renting instead of buying so there’s never been a better time to join the Redstones property agency franchise than now!
Redstones is different from other web based agencies. We use the latest state-of-the art systems to ensure that the back office service matches the front end which makes it possible to run a full service property agency from an office instead of the high street. This reduces overheads considerably.
Thanks to our SEO strategy and focus on pay-per-click we have developed a massive online presence and utilise all of the latest technologies to ensure we are always doing the best thing for our customers.
We are primarily focused on lettings but can help with sales. In order to make sure that our vendors sell quickly we use the very latest 3D floor plan and walk through technology. We’re on a mission to get the best out of all the technology that’s available today and make sure our customers will be amongst the first to benefit from it. We've even introduced an on line property auction service with 0% commission to attract more sellers
We focus on what landlords need and have developed a personal approach that offers them value and flexibility as well as benefits such as the Redstones Platinum Total Care service. We’ll cover how this works on our comprehensive new franchisee training course that will take you through everything you need to know about how to start your business.
No two days are ever the same as a Redstones franchisee. Each day brings its own unique mix of challenges, goals and opportunities, but it’s satisfying work and the financial and personal rewards can be substantial!
Training & Support
Our success depends on your success and that’s one of the reasons why we invest so much time and effort into our initial training programme.
