The Bruce brothers’ portal Boomin has signed two high profile regional agencies from the north of England.
Manning Stainton and Farrell Heyworth are the latest to join dozens of other firms which have committed to the new portal, which is expected to launch early next year.
“We were initially very sceptical of the Boomin proposition and approached it with a high degree of caution and scepticism. Whilst I did not know the Bruce brothers personally I decided to take the time to listen and evaluate the business on its merits, knowing at least that the founders had previously achieved a high degree of success and if replicated with Boomin could benefit our customers, our people and our business” explains Manning Stainton managing director Mark Manning.
“As a user of three portals at the moment, I can confidently say that the Boomin platform is very different and highly innovative for customers and agents. Creating a relationship with customers that extends beyond any transaction and building a platform which is revenue generating for agents is ground breaking and lies at the very heart of the business. The founders are backing this with a large amount of their own money and giving it an enormous amount of their time and attention” he adds.
And Jeremy Collins, director of Farrell Heyworth, comments: “Boomin have an innovative approach, some exciting ideas to enhance the client and agent experience and a desire to include agents and therefore we look forward to supporting them, engaging with the Boomin team and being part of the journey.”
The portal claims that despite the approach of Christmas, and the disappointment of the launch being pushed back from this month to early 2021, there is no drop-off in agencies coming forward to sign up.
“I would urge agents that perhaps have either not had the time or indeed the inclination to consider the platform to visit our updated website and make contact with myself and the team. We want to make a difference for you and your customers, to drive positive change and provide a better choice for agents” explains Michael Bruce, executive chairman and founder of Boomin.
