Boomin, the still-to-launch portal created by the founders of Purplebricks, has named another 10 founding member agencies.
Like the initial 10 they are independent chains, albeit many of them more regionally-based than the high profile companies named last week.
The latest 10 are Bidmead Cook, Balgores, Cooper & Tanner, Henry Adams, Jacob Steel, Karl Tatler, Miles & Barr, Michael Jones & Company, Kings Group and Linley & Simpson.
Michael Bruce, executive chairman of Boomin, says: “We continue to be hugely impressed by the interest in Boomin and the engagement from agents up and down the country.
“Their desire to give their customers the very best experience, the widest possible exposure for their home and be part of transforming the property market for everyone has been the driving force behind their decision to support Boomin.”
He continues: “2021 may prove to be a difficult year for the market so giving agents access to the latest portal technology without cost, with a view to increasing the number of property transactions and earning them additional income from new services centred on the broader home is widely welcomed by agents looking to the future.”
Agents who sign-up now qualify for a free equity share allocation and use of the platform until January 2022 at no cost.
The portal’s publicity statement refers to these founding agents as “pioneers” who “want to be at the forefront of the next generation of property portal, will become the go-to agents in their area for the unique features offered by Boomin.”
The 10 agencies on the first list of firms on board Boomin were Foxtons, Chancellors, Andrews, Century 21, Hunters, McEwan Fraser, Dacre, Son & Hartley, Ryder & Dutton, Miller Metcalfe and Mishon Mackay.
