Only Realty is the only real estate franchise that focuses on property investors and the rental and management of their investment as its core business. It offers franchisees the opportunity to build regular, secure residual income through building a managed property portfolio, while gaining access to the property sales market and being supported by a management team who collectively hold forty years’ experience in the sector. “Our management team are hands-on, easily contactable and actively involved in the day-to-day running of franchises, and are constantly working on growing and improving franchisees’ revenue and profitability,” says Managing Director Grant Smee. “Our success is underpinned by the people we have in our group. As such, we are looking for driven and passionate individuals who realise that success only comes from those you are surrounded by, combined with hard work.”
What’s on offer
Investing in a franchise package includes a once-off cost of R45 000 plus Vat and includes one-on-one training with directors across the organisation, operations and marketing guides, setup support, compliance support, with an optional start-up marketing kit. Franchisees benefit from ongoing active support throughout the year, the Only Realty national conference takes place annually, which is a combination of training, team building, strategic planning and awards.
“We currently have 24 offices across the country, and our initial expansion plan is to reach 50 franchises in the next 24 months and 70 in four years’ time, a growth plan which is consistent with our approach of being able to provide the best possible level of support to new franchisees and therefore not taking on too many new recruits,” says Smee. “We have experienced approximately 40% growth for each of the last two years and are looking to replicate if not improve on that performance in the coming years.”
