Up Estates, an online estate agency operating chiefly in Coventry, Nuneaton and Hinckley, says it will next year open a string of additional offices targeting major Midlands cities including Birmingham, Leicester and Nottingham.
The agency was named over the summer as being the recipient of a major £750,000 investment injection being raised by investment company Radius Equity.
“The real estate sector is evolving rapidly and Up Estates is leading the way as a regional agency with online capabilities. Homeowners are becoming increasingly reliant on online platforms to find property, but sellers are missing out on the personalised regional service of traditional agencies” says Gary Robins, director at Radius Equity.
“Online sites focused on national coverage don’t have the ability to market your property personally and cannot offer practical services such as house showings or accurate property valuations. Up Estates is a true hybrid, taking the best that online platforms and traditional agencies have to offer and creating a new breed of real estate agency.”
Radius says the agency expects to list at least 600 properties in 2015, double the number of listings last year.
