A few words from our franchisees


The best decision I’ve ever made! I purchased the Bournemouth and Poole franchise in September 2019. I would have gone live with my very 1st property in March 2020, Covid happened. I was devastated. Spent all this money and now I can’t even operate? Now, look at me.

I made the money I spent on the franchise back within the first months of really operating, and look forward to a successful future for me and my kids. A lucrative and different future solely because of the franchise!


Franchisee, Bournemouth & Poole

Short Letting, in my opinion, is the most exciting emerging economy in the property sector and being a part of Pass The Keys gives you a real edge over the competition in order to fully maximise the opportunity this presents. 

Every day is different, you meet such a variety of people; clients from all walks of life to contractors and other business owners. It really is a fast-based business that has fantastic growth potential!
