Bradleys Estate Agents, the westcountry’s largest independent agency chain, is the latest agency to sign up with Bamboo, an online property auction service.
In recent months the service has announced Hunters and Fisher German as other agency clients, and Bamboo claims there is “a waiting list” of others.
Chris Baxter, Bradleys’ managing director, says the auction service offers training and support to all of his staff. “This has meant that from the first day of working with Bamboo, Bradleys have been able to hit the ground running, offering a number of exciting new property instructions to the marketplace.”
Bamboo says an increasing number of agents are introducing online auctions as a way not just to win instructions, but also to sell properties with greater certainty, transparency and efficiency.
Prospective buyers can search, register and bid for properties online through Bamboo’s website as well as access each individual agent’s properties through their respective websites.
