We are a prop tech company that provide Estate Agents with the ability to run their own online auction platform, where they have full control throughout the entire process and help them win instructions with some great tech

What services do you offer and in what ways do you work with estate and letting agents? 

We offer an online auction platform that allows Estate Agents to sell through both the Traditional and Modern Method of auction. To go with this, we provide them with a prospecting tool which allows them to gain an insight into their surrounding market and provide details of their competitors stock. If that wasn’t enough, we have added an amazing probate tool to our services. This gives Estate Agents access to see every probate property that’s coming on to the market in their choice of postcode.

What makes your product different and how does it benefit agents?

I believe what we’re offering at Lets Bid Property has a number of benefits to agents using us. One of the major benefits of our online auction platform is the fact that we don’t charge buyers or sellers fee’s, so estate agents keep 100% of their agreed fee with their vendor. What we’re offering is different to everyone else as we’re much more affordable for agents, proving more value along the way. We charge a small monthly subscription fee and we give the agents full control on how they want to use our tools, providing 24/7 support and guidance along the way not to mention our probate tool who doesn’t want probate stock

What is your greatest achievement in your current role and what made it so special?

Watching agents grow and benefit from using our amazing tools. Seeing agents who are the best at what they do, use our platform to win more business and provide more great customer service to their market they operate in.

What is the most satisfying part of your job?

Being able to work with a great team on a daily basis, building something to be proud of along the way!

What do you see as the biggest challenge facing estate and letting agents at the moment?

The increase in competition and different ways of selling. The massive push on the modern method of auction will leave agents who chose to avoid it behind in my opinion.

What is your property prediction for 2021?

Property prices to increase by 10% due to the lack of new instructions coming on to the market, but increase in demand.

Country house or city apartment?  I would have to have both!

Country house all day. Perfect for those summer BBQ’S with friends and family!

Would you rather be a free-moving tenant or settled owner occupier?

Owner occupier.

What is your favourite room in your home? 

Wherever there is food or sport on the TV, so I would say kitchen.

Homes under the Hammer or Location, Location, Location? 

Homes under the hammer as it’s a lot more entertaining to watch.
