What our franchisees say

If you’re looking for new business opportunities in 2016 and may be interested in joining a franchise, one of the best ways of conducting your research is by talking to existing franchisees.

After all, going into business is a big decision which no one can afford to take blindly. At Redstones, we always recommend that interested individuals speak to our satisfied business owners to find out what running your own property business actually involves.

Here’s just a taste of what our franchisees have to say:

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with Redstones, as I admire their values and feel they can make a great contribution to landlords and vendors alike. Their franchise proposition is well thought through and well received so far. I am therefore keen to help with development to make it even better.’
Steve Doyle was appointed as Redstones first Franchise Operational Director in May 2015. He plans to work closely with Redstones franchisees to promote rapid business growth across the network.

The feeling of being part of a national organisation is definitely a great one for me. I have all the independence of running my own business but with the support of a recognised national brand. When someone tells me they have ‘heard of Redstones’ it is a real boost and affirmation of my decision to join.  Redstones has a solid reputation in a tough market for its commitment to customer service and attention to detail. It’s a brand name you can trust.   
Richmond Franchisee, Brinder Bains

“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 learned “the hard way”, I found the entire process of building a new franchise very encouraging. 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.”
Ilford franchisee Jeya Ruban

“The ethos of Redstones in terms of the service it offers to customers matched my own aspirations, meaning it would be easy to work to the brand’s guidelines. Furthermore, business terms and the size of territory on offer, as well as the subsequent scope of the business were far better than the rest.”
Earle Kenlay, who has just opened a Redstones office in Hale & Altrincham

The satisfaction of our growing network of franchisees speaks for itself. To find out more about becoming a Redstones franchisee, visit our Franchise website, call 01922 235 350 or email franchise@redstones.co.uk

At Redstones, we ensure that every potential business owner understands how the way we conduct business offers us an advantage in the competitive property business market.
