We’re planning the next phase of our development. Care to join us?
There’s a saying in business that to stand still means to fall behind – and, in estate agency, it’s certainly true.
Just like retail, the automotive industry or the travel business, our sector is going through radical change with new technology likely to prompt just as much innovation over the next decade as the development of the internet since the ‘90s.
It’s fair to say the advent of online estate agencies hasn’t been welcomed by the establishment.
Indeed, if you know anything about estate agency, you’ll be aware there’s a bitter split between those who still follow the high street model and the internet-based providers such as ourselves.
But, despite old-school estate agents agents using their combined buying power to stifle positive media coverage, despite allegations of poor service and sharp practice, despite claims of fake reviews, there’s still a growing appetite for the cheaper online estate agents.
It’s not likely to go away. Like or not, the internet is part of parcel of just about everything we do these days and buying and selling property is no exception. Now, we’re ready to grow to service that need.
We’ve already embarked on one crowd-funding initiative to help us expand our team a little, enhancing our call-handling and allowing us to offer a personal and bespoke service to each and every vendor who instructs us.
However, we’re not just about offering our service to people selling homes in Yorkshire. We’re ready to improve our offer to the rest of the UK, and we’d like YOU to join us.
We’re looking for partners or investors with vision who would like to be part of the next chapter as we build on the foundations, still marketing ourselves as Yorkshire’s own online estate agent but offering the same no-nonsense, straight-talking, honest service to the rest of the UK.
We all know Yorkshire Tea went with the England squad to Russia, Plusnet is now established as a trusted internet provider, and Theakston’s ales are hailed as among the best. We think we have all the ingredients in place to make a similar impact in online estate agency.
If you can see the potential in that, then we’d love to welcome you aboard.
But, as ever, we’re always at the end of the phone so, if you have any further questions or you’d just like a chat about our plans and how you could be part of them, feel free to give us a call or drop us a line. We’ll look forward to hearing from you …
