"We often miss opportunity because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." Thomas Edison
The Only Realty Group
I'd like to thank you for your interest in becoming a Franchise Partner. I am excited by the opportunity we are able to offer where your ability to earn, your time and your future is for you to decide.
The opportunity we are offering is hard work and involves more time, dedication and energy than working for someone else. You will be supported on your journey by our incredible team who are the most loyal, dedicated and professional, you will ever meet.
Our focus on constant improvement and growth has proven to be the foundation of our success over the years. We are not offering a business or a get rich quick scheme, we are offering a lifestyle with like-minded, success-driven winners where we accept responsibility for our decisions, focus on professionalism and celebrate each and every success.Get In Touch
We are impressed by the short time we needed to get the franchise off the ground. Solid training and support, good and complete legal documentation and start-up guides helped us kick-off at a high level from the beginning with a small team..
When help is required, the Franchise support team is there to provide us with solid advise and guidance.
"Being Part of the Only Realty Team doesn`t only give you the satisfaction of being your own boss, it makes you part of a true Realty Family!
Since joining the Only Rentals group, we have believed that we could succeed and we were always encouraged by Grant Smee and Megan Ladbrook that we will make a success of the Branch.
Due to their belief in us and our belief in our abilities, we bought another Franchise, one which was already running by that time. We knew we had to work harder to `win-over` clients in that municipal area, but today I believe we have gained the trust that is so vital in our industry and that we can only grow stronger on our journey ahead with Team Only Realty.
Although the change from Only Rentals to Only Realty had a huge impact on the industry in our area - all positive - we believe Only Realty will soon become one of the major brands in South-Africa.
The cornerstones of Honesty, Integrity, and Trust between agents and clients, landlords, tenants, buyers, and sellers will take us and the brand very far. We Believe Only Realty will be a competitive anchor, which in return will have great benefits for the Franchisees and the Group, allowing us to continue to give back to the Community and to encourage people from diverse backgrounds to make a success of their career path.

Only Realty Coastal (Port Elizabeth)
It was always a dream to own my own business and I always knew that when I did that I would put my heart & soul into whatever I chose.
Property has always been a passion from a very young age, I blame my mom for this as she too was always talking about property and from a young age my mom & I would spend many Sundays going to show houses, not for the property, but to see the décor, furniture & fittings. From there my interest in property started.
When the opportunity came, and I was ready to venture out on my own, I looked at many franchise opportunities and knew that retail was not something I wanted to go back to after spending 20yrs at Massmart and Garmin GPS.
Google is a wonderful tool, and one night, frustrated and despondent on what to do, I searched Franchise Opportunities, and Only Rentals was first on the list, I immediately knew this is what I wanted to do, having managed my own properties for the previous 10years. I thought “I can do this – Piece of Cake” and knew that this was exactly what I wanted to do, but most importantly I knew that I wanted to be part of an exciting young, up & coming franchise. I knew that my knowledge and experience was limited and being a Franchisee would assist in these limitations, I was ready and willing.
I met Grant Smee and the immense dedication and support were very encouraging and even though the first few months were tough, Grant helped me through it all, even after I was willing to give up, Grant never gave up on me, that’s what being part of an emerging franchise is about. The total commitment and support is like no other. Being part of Only Rentals, I knew that I could count on franchisors for guidance; other franchisees for support to build my business.
At any point and time, I know that my voice is not only heard by the franchisors, but it’s also helping to make positive changes for future franchisees. I feel at ease in picking up the phone to call the Grant to share an idea on how to make franchisees daily operations more efficient and the close relationship with the corporate team behind my queries, concept and my ideas is great. Grant & his team believe in me as much as I believe in them.
I believe with changing the name to Only Realty that we as a group have grown and we can make a difference in the property industry.
It is very exciting to see the changes and growth since I joined and I believe that Only Realty will be a household brand name in time to come, I am very proud to be part of this franchise.
