London agency chain Portico has signed up to OnTheMarket.
The 17 branch firm, which handles both sales and lettings, has offices in Acton, Battersea, Bethnal Green, Bloomsbury, Camden, Chigwell, Clapham, Dulwich, Forest Gate, Fulham, Hammersmith, Highbury, Ilford, Islington, Leyton, Walthamstow and Woodford.
Mark Lawrinson, Portico’s regional director, says: “We’re always looking at new ways to communicate our unique set of sales, lettings and Airbnb management services.
“By joining OnTheMarket we believe this provides a fantastic new platform to promote the Portico brand, seek out new audiences and support our continued growth in the market.”
Helen Whiteley, OTM’s commercial director, adds: “Since OnTheMarket plc’s Admission to AIM in February, other large firms including Arun, Belvoir, Chancellors, Hunters, Townends, Andrews and Pattinson have all decided to list all their properties at OTM along with thousands of other smaller firms which have helped generate momentum in local marketplaces across the UK.
"The more agents who join us now, the more we believe all agents and property-seekers will benefit in terms of the increased property stock at OnTheMarket. We remain committed to creating an agent-backed, full scale challenger portal.”
The portal now has over 11,500 lettings and estate agency branches signed up - more than twice the number listing at the time of the firm’s flotation on February 9.
