Full Description

Redstones pride ourselves on mixing traditional values with contemporary strategies to make the business of moving home as pain-free as possible.

Utilising the very latest top of the range technology, we supply all you need to convert more leads into clients. We’ve been at the forefront of online marketing since our inception in 2003, and have built up an enviable and extensive online presence that helps ensure your business gets in front of the right people at the right time.

As a franchisee, you’ll be backed by a bank of experts who will bring you and your team (should you bring one with you) fully up to date with the essential elements to run a successful estate agency franchise; after all, your business is our business, so we’ll be with you every step of the way…without getting in your way.

All of these benefits and our extremely low overheads make it easy to see why partnering with Redstones makes perfect sense.

Set Yourself Apart With A Redstone’s Franchise

Sales and lettings are increasing in competitiveness, so having an established name like Redstones behind you will put your business ahead of the competition.

We do things differently at Redstones; incorporating the latest technology and marketing techniques into our overall strategy has served us well for years, but we haven’t forgotten the importance of good old fashioned values either. It’s this combination that makes us what we are. It makes us Redstones.

Our Services

We cover the full property gamut at Redstones: from sales to lettings in commercial and residential sectors, through to auctions and property management. We even have our very own take on the ever-increasing online property market, Redstone’s Virtual, to ensure your franchise will meet the needs of the broadest customer base.

  • Sales – The traditional High Street model of estate agency isn’t dead, far from it. We offer high-end customer service to those who wish to go down the traditional sales route, with hands-on face-to-face relationships a priority.
  • Redstones Virtual – We’re on top of every trend, so we’re delighted to offer franchisees (and their customers) a completely new way of dealing in property: Redstones Virtual.
  • Lettings – Being part of the well-established Redstones brand helps you gain all-important trust with prospective clients. Coupling this trust with outstanding customer service and state-of-the-art tech makes turning leads into customers a breeze, which means a better bottom line for your business.
  • Property Management – Whether your client has a property portfolio, or a single property they’d like you to look after, as our franchisee you will be able to offer them a bespoke package.
  • Commercial – If you want to add commercial properties to your franchise, you can, at no extra cost.
  • Auctions – Auctions are increasingly popular, so naturally we offer you the opportunity to get involved in this exciting market.

  • Redstones Finance – People lead busy lives, so many clients are looking for a one-stop-shop for an increasing range of services. With Redstones Finance, you can give your clients such an experience, making their lives easier in the process with our in-house financial advice, ranging from mortgage advice to help funding business take over/rebrand.

The Redstones Way: Our Business Model

Unlike many other agents, we fully appreciate that our franchisees have different needs, which is why we offer a range of packages designed to suit your requirements:

  • Serviced office / home
  • High Street
  • Agent rebrand / acquisition

Having these options available to you means you’ll be able to hit the ground running, meeting the needs of your prospective clients from day one.

So, for example, if your area has a large stock of property within its boundaries and the market conditions are right for a High Street branch, we’ll do all that we can to help you serve your local community efficiently and effectively.

In short, we’re flexible and perfectly positioned to give you and your business the best chance of success. It is, after all, what we do.

Our Territories

Redstones’ regions offer extraordinary scope, we have gone to great lengths to ensure that our territories are both well-balanced and fair to all of our franchise partners – something that is sorely lacking from many other estate agent franchises.

We’ve used mapping specialists to create territories that, not only have a good mix of property types, but also have a good number of homes within their boundaries (typically circa. 100,000 homes, spanning a total population of 250,000 people).

We don’t believe in tying partners down to a single High Street just so we can sell more franchises. We believe in offering the very best business model to each of our franchisees instead.

Promoting Your Business

Our marketing team is extremely future focused, with expert SEO specialists and social media wizards combining with the very best PPC (Pay Per Click) masters to bring online searchers straight to your site.

We also utilise all of the major property portals such as Zoopla and Rightmove, but our own online presence is second to none, locally, thanks to the work we have put in to raise our digital profile.

As our franchisee you will get your own micro-site that will showcase your properties and give you the opportunity to run your business from a serviced office, if you so wish.

Redstones Hub: Removing Administrative Annoyances

Although the Redstones Hub is an optional extra, many of our franchisees regard it as an integral part of their success as it gives them the opportunity to get on with growing their business while we take care of the administrative donkey work.

Redstones Hub offers an additional layer of support that can be invaluable if you’re looking to take your business to the next level quickly and efficiently. Why stress over paperwork when you could be out their meeting new vendors and landlords?

Pricing

The initial franchise fee is an extremely competitive £12,995.

As our franchisee, you will receive all of the benefits associated with being part of our team in return for 8% of your monthly turnover. The only other charge you’ll incur with us is the 2% marketing levy, which goes towards boosting the brand as a whole, something that will benefit each and every franchisee.

What Makes A Great Redstones’ Franchisee?

Much as we are flexible with other areas of our business model, we are also open-minded over who would be a good fit for our brand…we’re all different, after all.

Backgrounds vary, as do skill levels and experience within the property market, but there are a few key areas that our most successful franchisees share: motivation, drive, ambition, a passion for working with people and an overarching focus on providing copybook customer service to all clients.

If you tick these boxes, we’d love to hear from you today. Get in touch with our friendly franchise team to find out more on how partnering with Redstones can help you achieve your true potential.
