Next Steps

Q&A with East Berkshire franchisee, Joe

Joe was Pass the Keys’ very first franchisee, joining the team back in April 2019. Since then, he has steadily built his portfolio and continues to provide top-quality short-let property management services to homeowners in the area. Originally operating in Windsor and a few surrounding small towns, he has since expanded to cover a much larger territory of East Berkshire.

Here is a quick Q&A with Joe so you can see what he has to say about the Pass the Keys franchise programme.

How long have you been a franchisee for and how’s your experience been overall?

Pass the Keys Franchise | short-let property mangement business“I started in April (2019) and it’s going well! I was very excited when I joined and I’m still excited now - I love the business and the reasons why I joined are being proven.”

What drew you to franchising at Pass the Keys?

There were three things that drew me to franchising at PTK: the people, the opportunity and the tech. The tech was a massive factor. I’m a bit of a geek, and the tech blew my mind, it was insane. The team continuously developing it are doing such a great job.”

How would you describe PTK as an organisation?

“PTK is energetic, enthusiastic and brilliant! The energy is obvious because the people within the company put so much into it and you can tell.”

What about the business model?

“It’s a proven model that works. Mistakes have already been made, and we’ve made some but on the whole they’ve already been ironed out.”

What is the support like from PTK HQ?

“I love it. My Account Manager is invaluable to me as he gives me time and we always have our weekly catch-ups. I think the team is great, I can’t fault it. No negatives at all.

What Our Franchisees Say

The fact that you actually see the results of your hard work. The results are tangible and there is definitely a sense of achievement as you add properties to your portfolio and things become more streamlined, and of course profitable. The byproduct of this is an ever-increasing knowledge of the market and potential in your area.

I now I work entirely for myself which is a new and liberating experience. Nothing motivates you quite like it and I now feel like I am working towards building my own future which gives me a sense of satisfaction I never had before .Jean Ramsay (Bournemouth & Poole)

There is full training and support throughout your journey. What I love however is that there is still plenty of room for you as an individual to show your entrepreneurial spirit. I enjoy the fact I wear many hats on a daily basis. I will work on marketing strategies, sales processes, operations, managing relationships and all the financial responsibilities of being a business owner each day. Amy Duff (Portsmouth)
