The first Propertyscouts office began in Dunedin over fourteen years ago. With the Milton Weir at the helm it quickly grew to become one of the biggest Property Management businesses managing hundreds of rental properties in the Otago region. Milton took time out in 2014 to fully document the various procedures and processes that lead to the success of the Dunedin business. Utilising previous franchise experience, he started the Propertyscouts franchise 'arm' and the first franchises were sold in early 2015.
In 2017 Milton sold the Dunedin business to allow him to concentrate on the rapidly growing franchise business.
In his words - "We are continuing to expand throughout New Zealand by rolling out a series of owner/operator franchise businesses. Our ownership model allows franchisees to fit their own business to their lifestyle but have the stability of working with a successful and established company - work as hard as they please and reap the rewards. As a business owner, you'll have access to proven marketing strategies, operational support and a comprehensive manual - all part of our unique process related
model which encourages success".
In the industry since 1995 as a landlord and a qualified Property Manager, Keys is pedantic and picky; good traits to keep tardy tenants in line. Working since 2006 for clients, Keys has gradually increased the business at a steady and manageable pace. Helpful and fair, Keys sides with what is right, not what is nice to do. He takes no prisoners.
