Hi, I’m Sabrina, Franchise Partnership Manager and I joined Pass the Keys in January 2020. I have been with the business for 18+ months and prior to that I worked for one of the largest property franchise groups in the UK; recruiting estate agency business owners and helping and supporting them to rebrand their businesses. Alongside this, I also recruited estate and letting agents and those with very little if any agency experience also helping and supporting them to run their own successful estate agencies.
Here at Pass The Keys, I am responsible for managing a team of Franchise Sales Consultants, approving Franchise applicants and overall franchise recruitment for UK’s Most Trusted, Fastest growing Short Let Management Franchise. The only UK Airbnb Partner and Professional Airbnb Co-host.
Since launching in 2015, we have grown 300% year on year. We now operate in nearly 50 locations across the UK and earn our hosts more than £600k each month with over 2000+ bookings.
Five years of trading and millions invested in operations and technology has led to Pass the Keys developing a bespoke and scalable property management framework, an offering which we are now making available to partners by recruiting Franchisees across the UK to join the Pass the Keys family.
My Key responsibilities involve having the freedom to recruit the best Franchisees and continuously working with them and the Senior Management Team to develop systems, processes and strategies.
I witness Franchisees grow their businesses, their lifestyle change and how this business has helped and supported them and their loved ones, providing them with financial freedom and flexibility. It’s the best feeling in the world! ?
1. What is so great about a Pass the Keys Franchise?
Pass The Keys provides our Franchise Partners with a proven business model, allowing entrepreneurs to fast-track their journey to success in one of the most exciting emerging economies in the property sector today!
We have worked tirelessly over the last seven years to create a bespoke business model that replicates our success of running our own successful operations across the UK.
Today we are partnering with UK entrepreneurs and providing them with one of the best opportunities on the market today. All our Franchisees receive business in a box- full training in short-let property management, so even if you have no experience in managing properties on platforms like Airbnb, you will be able to start building your business from the outset.
Our Franchise Partners will automatically benefit from our status as a professional co-host of Airbnb and our leading reputation in the industry, as well as have full access to our bespoke technology, expert knowledge and supportive community, which includes a dedicated Account Manager.
They will also have a 24/7 guest support team on hand to answer guest queries, leaving them with more time to focus on deploying our proven marketing plan, selling Pass the Keys’ services and ultimately growing your business. We are determined to provide our Partners with every chance of success in this growing industry!
2. How can a Pass the Keys Franchise make your business stand out?
This business model is one of it’s kind in the short let/staycation industry, and has the backing and stamp of approval from market leaders Airbnb.
It is an absolutely fantastic business model providing Franchisees with the ability to not only grow their business but sustainably scale it. Thanks to our investment in our technology, process and systems this business allows a single Franchise Partner to manage fifty properties rather than them setting up on their own where they would be able to manage five properties maximum. So, the business model is a low cost, high return business model designed for maximum scalability, providing residual income to our Franchise Partners.
3. What qualities are you looking for in a Pass the Keys Franchisee?
We are looking for Franchise Partners that are driven, ambitious, motivated and passionate about providing the best possible customer service to our hosts, guests and service providers.
We have partnered with Franchisees from all walks of life, Franchisees which have previously run their own independent businesses, worked as Sales or Marketing Directors, Consultants and who today run their own estate agency/letting agency businesses!

4. Moving forward, what does the future of short letting look like post-pandemic?
I am so excited about the future here at Pass the Keys! During a global pandemic, we recruited 30+ Franchise Partners, who went on to have record-breaking months one after the other. This summer, our bookings soared through the roof and with staycations here to stay in the UK, the sky really is the limit!
I am also very much looking forward to our International Franchise expansion, in which we can replicate the success we have had as a business here to overseas markets.
