The Redstones franchise network is rapidly expanding across the UK. Our franchisees come from a wide range of backgrounds, yet they all share a common aim - to establish and grow a successful business and create a brighter future for themselves and their families.

Here's what some of them have to say:

Dean Caldon

After 16 years as an employee I always hoped that one day I could run my own business, and buying a franchise was the perfect way to fulfil that dream.

For a relatively low initial investment we were able to secure a much larger territory than we would have been able to with anyone else. And we were also able to speak directly to Manjit Virdi, the owner of Redstones, which gave us greater insight into the business.

From the initial 2-week training course at head office, the Business Development Course, and the ongoing operational support, Redstones have been there every step of the way with endless enthusiasm.

Dean Caldon - Redstones, Brentwood

I like the franchise business model because there's really no limit to what you can earn - the harder I work the more I earn, and I enjoy reaping the rewards of my own efforts.

I chose Redstones over the other property franchises because of their professionalism and efficiency. Their operation is extremely impressive, and the technology they have in place makes everything incredibly efficient – so it was really a very simple decision to make.

Manj Singh - Redstones, Staffordshire

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 – Redstones, Wolverhampton

I had been looking at starting up my own property business for years but never found the right fit or route to market. This all changed when I met Redstones. I had spoken to a number of franchisors but no other company matched the passion, drive and professionalism that I received from Redstones. The 2 weeks training at head office was extremely valuable, building knowledge of running a successful property business: from the systems in place, creating a thorough marketing plan to going out on appraisals and viewings. The support is ongoing and the business works hard for its franchisee's.

Redstones is very forward thinking, "Redstones Platinum Total Care" service is an example of this, this top level service provides Landlords with guaranteed rent paid on time, every time, whether the tenant has paid or not, a great way of winning new business.

I now have my own property business with the added bonus of a huge support network to ensure I am a success.

What impressed me most about Redstones, was their open and honest approach in handling my initial enquiry. Not only did Manjit and Chris respond to me promptly, but they also gave me the chance to ask as many questions as I wanted, and answered me honestly, and clearly.

I had looked into other property franchises, but was immediately drawn to Redstones due to the brand, and the relatively low costs compared to others. In doing my research, I made contact with all of the other available franchises, and never got the feeling the they were as passionate about growing the network as Redstones are, or that my enquiry really mattered that much to them. I was invited down to Redstones HQ to meet with Manjit and find out exactly what being a franchisee would involve. I came prepared with my lists of questions, but all of these were answered through the presentation!

From here, I was given all access to all of the current franchisee's, who all backed up my initial thoughts about the strength of the brand, and the excellent on-going support provided to them, whenever they feel they need it.

The 2 weeks training at head office has been a fantastic experience, with no stone left un-turned. The staff all speak highly about working for an ambitious company, and showed great patience and professionalism in guiding me through the processes and procedures of a busy Estate Agent.

I cannot thank Manjit and his team enough for all of their support, and am feeling proud and excited about being part of Redstones continuing success.

Craig Scott – Redstones, Newcastle upon Tyne

Having over 10 years' experience of owning and letting commercial, Holiday and residential property. Running a small business that employed staff for this purpose. I was looking to expand residential lettings side of the business and also venture into residential sales. Having experienced mixed service levels within the lettings industry I felt there was plenty of scope to improve.

I had been researching the franchise letting market place for some time talking to the larger established names in the industry, but the startup costs made it very prohibitive and in such a competitive market place I felt the chances of success with the burden of the initial costs was low. Also some of the territories being offered were not very big.

After meeting Manjit at Redstones and discussed the Franchise in more detail. I felt that the Redstone's offering was in line with my own requirements and expectations. He was open and honest with all my due diligence allowing me unrestricted access to other franchisee's to answer questions and provide information I need. They are ambitious and enthusiastic about the brand.

I concluded that Redstones offered the best value, a good brand, a substantial territory, minimal interference for me to run the business and high level of support from their head office staff. In my experience organisations such as Redstones have the agility and creativity to win more custom, provide greater customer service and move quickly to keep in line with industry changes.

Alan Munns - Redstones Thanet

Normally for me, the prospect of attending any 'Training course' is rarely an exciting one. However, having gotten to 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.

Brinder Bain – Redstones Richmond

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 LetMC useful as it has built in functionality for each and every aspect of property management.

We went through the work book in detail however, it would have been useful if there were "Key Notes" attached to every heading. This, I feel would help brain storming at a later stage as not everyone makes notes.
