Toronto| An affirmatively disruptive real estate company Propertyguys.com founded by Ken Leblanc is offering Canadians and American entrepreneurs who have the drive to join the industry a franchise opportunity starting form $20 000.
According to an advert issued by the company on its official website the company said the franchise set fee range from $25K to $75K depending on the size of the company.
The company said it is offering the entrepreneurs a starter kit of $5k to $8K.
In an interview recently, Ken Leblanc said the franchisee has an opportunity to function as a head office and the clients do not need to know where headquarters are.
Said Leblanc “The local franchisee is there to serve the local market and only on rare occasions do the clients know that we are based in Atlantic Canada. The local franchisee based in Toronto is from Toronto and they are part of the community, which is how we don’t lose that local feel, which is so important in real estate.”
The operational budget for a Propertyguys.com franchisee ranges from $25k – $100K.
According to the advert when one opts to be part of the franchise they are taken to the training facilities located at propertyguys.com University (PGU), where they will undergo a one week hands-on learning the following:
- History and future
- The economics of real estate
- Licensed services and compliance
- Strategic marketing
- Leveraging our web platform
- Business planning and development
After training and signing of agreements, the trainee will be awarded an exclusive PropertyGuys.com franchise.
Leblanc said his company was leveraging on cutting edge technology to satisfy clients. He explained that his company was doing away with the traditional method of doing business where a client had to physically visit a property before they buy it.
“Our small company based in Moncton, New Brunswick has now over 100 franchisees which has made it to become a world-renowned real estate giant.
“We generally realized that our clients are lovers of technology and the digital space. And we embraced it. We are an uber of the real estate industry”
