Two of the leading lights in the growing Proptech sector are now working with a company which has a product it claims allows traditional estate agencies to ‘take on Purplebricks.’
Hystreet offers a white labelled online estate agency platform which can be used by otherwise-traditional agencies to provide a Purplebricks-style hybrid service if they wish.
Now they have recruited the two men behind the PropTechConsult consultancy - James Dearsley and Eddie Holmes - to the team. Both have invested in the business and taken up senior advisory roles.
James Dearsley - a weekly contributor to Estate Agent Today - says: “We are looking forward to the challenge of helping high street estate agents leverage their service levels with useful technology tools. Understanding the business model behind it has been exciting and confirmed our belief that there are simple and cost effective solutions for estate agents looking to invigorate their business models into 2018 and beyond.”
The Hystreet platform has the functionality of online agencies and customers can request valuations, book viewings, make offers, provide feedback, negotiate a sale, and communicate with an agent online.
