Redstones : Franchisee Training That Works

Redstones franchisees come from a diverse range of backgrounds and two of the questions we’re frequently asked are:-

  • How comprehensive (and successful) is the training offered to Redstones franchisees?
  • What background and experience is needed to succeed as a Redstones franchisee?

You’ll find a link to a blog which addresses the second question at the end of this article.

As for the first question, while it’s easy for us to tell potential franchisees how effective our training programme is, we prefer to let our franchisees speak for us.

Former electrical contractor and new Richmond franchisee, Brinder Bains recently completed his training with Redstones and provided us with this feedback on his experience:-

‘Normally for me, the prospect of attending any ‘training course’ is rarely an exciting one. However, having reached this stage of the franchise process with Redstones, I was actually looking forward to it with ‘real’ energy and ‘excitement’.

I was not disappointed. As the training unravelled it became apparent these guys really have done this before and are prepared for everything. Every pothole, pitfall and eventuality is covered by the training (I suspect they learned the hard way). Nonetheless, I now feel coiled and ready to action a (dare I say it) simple, step by step system and build my franchise into a solid branch of Redstones’.

At Redstones, we base our training on four fundamental principles:-

A comprehensive operations manual

Our franchisee training comprises an intensive two week training course, which provides our franchisees with all the information, knowledge and techniques they need to successfully operate their Redstones lettings agency franchise.  Our training assumes no prior knowledge or experience of the lettings sector (as Brinder’s testimonial and background shows). Following the launch of your Redstones franchise, this is supported by our comprehensive training manual which is also a key part of your franchise agreement with Redstones.

Training at Redstones Headquarters

All of our franchisees are trained on-site at Redstones’ head office with the full involvement and expertise of our owner Manjit Virdi supported by key members of Redstones’ support team.  This team will be vital in providing you with ongoing assistance as you grow your new lettings agency franchise.

On-site at your launch

After you’ve completed your training, Redstones’ franchise support team is on hand to offer advice and assistance as you launch your new lettings agency.  If requested, we also attend those all-important first meetings with landlords to assist you in securing your first clients for your Redstones franchise.

Ongoing training

Our support doesn’t end there – with Redstones, your success is our success.  We are committed to all of our franchisees and offer telephone support seven days a week, as well as regular visits from a dedicated franchise development manager to ensure your Redstones franchise is progressing in line with your business plan. Added to that, we provide regular updates on legislation or industry changes that may affect your legal obligations.
