Industry figures acquire agency network

The Relocation Agent Network (RAN) has been sold to a company featuring respected estate agency industry figures.

RAN’s owner Dwellworks has completed on the sale to Realogist, founded by Simon Whale of Kerfuffle and Kevin Ellis of Thomas Mae Group. 

Fellow directors of the new company include RAN’s Ian Stratford and Richard Durrant, who becomes the new managing director of the brand.


 Durrant said: “The potential of RAN is enormous. 

“As a respected network with many exceptional agencies, we’re looking to build on both the agent and consumer offering. This is an exciting new chapter for RAN, and we have pulled together a strong leadership team who know the industry well, have strong track records and care about helping agents unlock more revenue.” 

Ellis added: “Investing in a network like RAN with agent collaboration at its core makes perfect sense to us and aligns with our wider business interests which include the land and new homes network. 

“There are so many best-in-class agencies within its ranks that we feel with the addition of fresh enthusiasm, industry experience and investments in the tech and marketing side of the network, we will be able to help members achieve more success.” 

Whale said the opportunity to have agents in the country working collaboratively is a dream come true. 

He added: “Dwellworks have been highly efficient and professional, and we’re looking forward to working with them in a new relationship and with our focus on growing the network with best in class agencies and supporting members with new features and services.”

The new owners will be hosting RAN Kickstart webinars over the next few days to share its wider vision with members.
