Pass the Keys® South Pembrokeshire expands into Swansea!

Pass the Keys officially announce Mark Pennino as the new business owner of Pass the Keys® Swansea!

Mark is already widely successful as Franchise Owner of Pass the Keys® South Pembrokeshire and is looking forward to sharing his extensive property management expertise across the South West of Wales.Pass the Keys Franchise - Mark Pennino

We caught up with Mark to discuss the exciting news!:
“I am very excited about the opportunity to work with existing and new hosts in my home city. I have lived in Swansea all my life and I know this city extremely well.  I have successfully run several businesses over the years as well as working for some of the largest companies in the UK in senior roles.

I started my Pass the Keys® journey as a Host and was so interested in the opportunity and their professional set up I decided to start my own business. 

Overseeing our operations and account management is Jamie Smith. Jamie has worked with me for several years and has a proven track record with first-class customer service and is currently doing a fantastic job for our Pass the Keys® operation in Pembrokeshire. Jamie will head up our teams in Swansea and Pembrokeshire as our business expands.

The number one priority is to ensure guests always have a 5-star experience whilst maximising the returns for our hosts. 

We have always had a passion for property and have been managing our own property portfolio in South West Wales for a number of years before taking on a Pass the Keys® Franchise.”

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.

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)

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)
