An estate agency says it has produced technology allowing clients to track the precise whereabouts of their estate agent when he or she is on their way to a viewing.
Allsopp & Allsopp, based in Warwickshire and the West Midlands, says the technology goes on to allow buyers and tenants to make an offer on a property at any time of day without having to make a phone call, with the offer informationautomatically fed back to the seller or landlord.
In turn, the owner can then read feedback after their property has been viewed, straight from the person who has viewed it.
The technology is called Find My Agent and the agency’s managing director Carl Allsopp says: “We are excited to bring the first phase of what we believe will change estate agency as we know it. It is exciting to see our idea finally come to fruition after years of planning, investing and working round the clock.”
He adds: “Our tenants and buyers will be sent the property location and the live location of their estate agent on the way to the property with the Find My Agent feature. They will receive a notification when the agent is on their way, around the corner and outside the property. The client will have the option to make an offer or provide feedback once they have left the location of the property via a WhatsApp notification. These actions will be sent directly to the property owner.”
The agency says this technology should eliminate the uncertainty of agents turning up on time and allowing clients to keep to their tight schedules.
