Our Unique Selling Point
Comprehensive training and support
The benefit of buying a Go Direct Lettings franchise is the comprehensive training and support in “know how” tactics and trade secrets that you receive from day one.
Although experience in the property world would prove an advantage, it is not necessary as you will be trained in all aspects of the business. We will support you and be on hand to help with any issues you may have 24/7, 365 days a year! This is particularly important in the early days of the business as this is the time when you will require the most support.
We are also on hand to assist in systems input, legal requirements, appropriate insurances, site selection, shop fit out, hiring and recruiting staff, training, appropriate marketing and any launch campaigns, etc. If you were to go it alone and start your own business from scratch, you would not have this support.
Experience is a key factor
Without experience, you are vulnerable to “learning the hard way”, which is of course, also the expensive way.
As part of our team you will benefit from a group marketing fund, which gives you greater marketing power than you would have if running your own marketing campaigns as a sole trader.
Being part of our network team
It is not only the franchisor who is on hand to help out when you need it – you are also able to tap into the wealth of knowledge of your fellow franchisees and team members, tuning in to those who can relate most closely to you and can understand your concerns from their own experiences so can help with any queries you may have. We also hold regular meetings so we can swop best practice and introduce you to many different learning and development opportunities as we go.
For a franchise to be successful it needs to have successful people working within it. This is why team players are so keen to help each other – your success is a reflection of their success.
We will be with you throughout your journey with us to offer any additional support or training and market updates as you need them and they occur.
Legal compliance and awareness
All areas of society, particularly commerce and business have lots of specific legal requirements. Many overlap, such as employment law, discrimination, health and safety at work and much more, but there are areas of “specific performance” where industry specific legalities are of vital importance. We will ensure you are kept well aware of and assist you in compliance of these rules and regulations, including access to our market leading software, comprising of all legal documents and template letters.
See what some of our franchisees have to say
“Don and Lyn provide tremendous support. Every query is answered swiftly and professionally. I had a small health problem at the start of the franchise and Don and Lyn’s attitude was amazing – every need was covered. I believe my future success will be directly attributable to the help and assistance provided during the start of the business.”
South Liverpool Branch
“I have worked for different Estate Agents over the last 12 years, but I decided to invest in a franchise with Go Direct Lettings so I could be my own boss. Don and Lyn have given me the support and knowledge I needed to get out there and make it happen. For once, I have my own prosperity in my hands!”
North Wirral Branch
“Having started out in property management 18 years ago, this opportunity was the next natural progression. There is no end of support from the management team and although the franchises are separate, it’s a fantastic team to be part of. If you are thinking about starting your own business, I would definitely recommend Go Direct Lettings.”
East Wirral Branch
“I am at the beginning of my journey, but so far, so good I could not be happier and to be honest wish I had done this years ago. The current climate in the private rental sector is ripe for forward thinking motivated people to change their lives and run a business in a booming and growing industry, no matter what your experience is, the opportunity is huge.”
MEET OUR TEAM
The business was launched by Don and Lynda Holmes-Kelly after working in the industry since the late 1980’s building a lettings practice from a cold start – with no properties and no landlords and they had up to 1200 properties under management starting from just a phone and a desk.
In 2006 we were approached by a large local firm and after some negotiation a deal was struck and we sold out to them. Unfortunately, they became an early casualty of the 2007 financial crisis and went into receivership soon after, leaving a client vacuum. We were already researching the franchise direction and were able to adopt some of the old client base and use that as our pilot platform for the franchise.
We then launched the Go Direct Lettings franchise model in 2013 based on over 25 years property experience in Buying, Selling, Building, Lettings, Rental & Managing, and many other aspects in the property arena, both in the UK and abroad The business is driven by property people with years of experience with many different property strategies, but also with passion and determination to succeed.
