The soon-to-launch Boomin portal has signed up a national firm and now claims to have recruited 40 per cent of the country’s top 100 agencies.
Boomin, set up by Michael and Kenny Bruce - the Purplebricks founders - says it’s signed up “several thousand agency branches”.
Amongst the latest signatories is national firm Carter Jonas and respected London agency Martin Gerrard.
Another 13 regional operators have also been signed up as founder members of Boomin.
“Agents of all sizes are embracing positive change and the latest technology to deliver a superior service for their customers and provide greater earnings potential for their teams” says Michael Bruce.
“It is a privilege to get the opportunity to work with such a large and growing number of forward thinking agents who are keen to be the pioneers of change and to ensure that they have greater influence over the future of their customers portal experience and their advertising spend. We will work tirelessly to support them” he continues.
Today’s latest signatories are: Carter Jonas; Martyn Gerrard; Urban & Rural; Bond Oxborough Phillips; Hall & Scott; Perry Bishop; Steven Smith; Base Property Specialists; Coopers; Atkinson McCleod; Anthony Pepe; Richard Kendall; Brockenhurst; Stephenson Browne; and Scott Sheen and Partners.
Boomin has now repeated the familiar statement that agents who sign-up at this stage qualify for Founder Agent status, which means a free equity share allocation and use of the platform itself until January 2022 at no cost.
“Thereafter, Founder Agents will benefit from locked in pricing, with compelling, transparent and guaranteed terms until 2024. Base fees for Founder Agents, which include pretty much everything that other portals levy additional charges for, will from 2022, be just £300 and £400 outside and inside London respectively” says the portal.
David Ruddock, head of residential sales operation for Carter Jonas says: “We are delighted to join Boomin as Founder Members and be part of such a pioneering and game changing property portal which we think will re-invigorate the property market and facilitate an innovative way for Agents to develop relationships with new clients.”
Simon Gerrard, managing director of Martyn Gerrard Estate Agents adds: “For any modern and forward-thinking estate agency, signing up to Boomin should be a no brainer. The platform set to launch is one that will put control firmly back in the hands of estate agents while also delivering exactly what customers need, and Martyn Gerrard are delighted to be working with them.”
