Description of business

Founded in 2011 by Sandy Mitchell, the RedBook Agency operates in London and across the country.

Its a premium brand enjoying a very high level of professional and critical respect, as evidenced by its PR profile in editorial features from the FT, House & Garden etc, professional peer-group research…

A veteran of the residential property world has remarked that RB is in the ‘happiness business’ because it engages with clients at a point in their lives when they are about to embark on an exciting adventure in building or refurbishing a home, and all seems possible.

RB aims to deliver a client experience that leads naturally to highly appreciative testimonials such as recent ones, including one from the global head of markets at one of the biggest investment banks: ‘Thank you for your usual professionalism and thoughtfulness.’ Or, more surprisingly, from another top business figure, ‘RedBook saved my marriage.’

The main value add…

Business goal to increase revenue/grow profit…to £1 million…, and grow its team to exploit the opportunities available.

Its set. It is often said that the amount of help RB provides to clients, and the amount of work and attention it gives to each, is what sets it apart.

RB is run by a small tight-knit team that has been working together for some years. The two senior team members, SM and ER, have worked at RB since before its launch. The firm has huge potential for growth both in its existing market, and in new markets (see below).

There are two offices: the ‘private office’ in Belgravia which is mainly used for client meetings and occasionally for meeting fellow professionals; and the main administrative office in Hungerford, Berkshire. It is envisaged that new office space may be required in central London.

RB is an Apple-based paper-free office based around Microsoft Office software and a customised, user-friendly CRM system called Daylite.
