A series offering “insight and advice” to agents is being launched by Zoopla’s cloud-based software brand, Alto, which was acquired by the portal in 2016.
The series, which will consist of five weekly episodes, is called Altogether and involves agents and industry experts discussing challenges including managing data and the future of estate agency.
The first episode, already available, discusses starting your own agency with industry experts, and inspired by a surge in individuals leaving agencies to set up their own businesses.
Andy Marshall, Zoopla Chief Commercial Officer, said: “One thing that’s clear from my meetings with agents is that their people are their greatest asset but their great work is often hampered by time spent on software and admin. We hope our Altogether video series will support agents to drive efficiencies in their agencies, enabling them to do what they do best which is focusing them on drumming up business, building a rapport with clients, conducting valuations and most importantly winning instructions.”
Agent James Dowling of Latcham Dowling, who features in the first episode, says: “Since starting my own agency I’ve learned plenty of tips and tricks along the way. I’m delighted to be taking part in this insightful thought leadership campaign and I hope that sharing my experiences with the agent community will inspire others to take the plunge.”
