A Newcastle-based property company says it has acquired the listings of Emoov and Tepilo.
It has emailed and texted vendors to say it wants to help them get their properties back on the market.
The company is Pattinson which has 27 branches and works in partnership with others across the UK as Pattinson Auctions.
In a flyer seen by Estate Agent Today and sent to vendors of Emoov and Tepilo, Pattinson says “We are hoping to assist all customers who have been affected. We are able to help market your property, and it can be back online very quickly. We are offering our service for FREE with the added bonus of £750 on completion of sale.”
The agency says it offers accompanied viewings, feedback, sales progression “and a complete estate agency service.”
Pattinson’s publicity material aimed at stranded vendors says: “We appreciate that you will have a lot of questions and we will be in contact over the next few days. Please bear with us as we will be attending to all Emoov and Tepilo customers as a matter of urgency.”
Emoov, the online agency led by Russell Quirk, collapsed officially last Monday week but had been in cash troubles for some time before; it claimed to have run out of money because investment pledged during its merger with online agencies Tepilo and Urban in the spring had not arrived as expected.
EAT has asked Pattinson for its comments.
