Savills, the high end estate agency, has parted ways with public relations company The Red Brick Road as a result of the PR firm's deal with easyProperty.
Savills and The Red Brick Road had worked together for five years on marketing projects - The RBR did not handle any public relations.
In May the PR company was hired to handle the creative and PR activity for easyProperty.
Earlier this week the PR firm organised the controversial 'funeral' stunt staged in central London by easyProperty to publicise what it claimed to be the death of the "fat fees" high street estate agency.
Campaign magazine says Savills has already contacted rival PR agencies and wants to have a new deal agreed by the end of this month.
The magazine says that back in 2010 Savills appointed Ruby (which was absorbed into The Red Brick Road in 2011) to "refresh its corporate and consumer advertising in an attempt to increase share in the property market."
"We worked on a project-by-project basis with the fantastic Savills team for a number of years. We were appointed to launch a game-changing property business for the easyGroup earlier this year – therefore are sadly unable to continue working with Savills" a spokesman for the PR firm is quoted as saying.
