OnTheMarket has issued testimonials from three agents advertising their properties on the portal, which marks its first anniversary later this month.
A press release from the portal says the agents’ comments show that OTM provides “an extremely high standard” of leads and is “a much fairer system” of promoting properties without the display or sale of additional products.
The release also claims that OTM is different “because it listens to its members.”
The testimonials include one from Ben Gershon, director of Frost Property in Purley, saying the portal allows agents “to regain control of our industry and I am keen to support this.”
Mike Marsh from Raine and Co in Hertfordshire and Mayfair says: “The leads supplied to us by OnTheMarket are of an extremely high standard. We hear frequently from our customers how user-friendly OTM is and how cleanly it displays the properties on the market.”
Scott Mason, director of The Home Partnership, is quoted in the release as saying: “We were tired of the upselling by the other portals and decided that OnTheMarket’s approach - without all the bells and whistles of additional products - was a much fairer system.”
A few days ago OTM released a testimonial from one of the directors of parent company Agents’ Mutual. In it, Knight Frank partner Noel Flint said: “Our clients like the portal and I don't believe we are experiencing any loss of business.”
OnTheMarket has previously said repeatedly that it would overtake Zoopla by its first anniversary, but there was no reference to this in its latest press release.
