In a video interview for Estate Agent Today, property professional Chris Buckler speaks to Christopher May, director of free-to-list portal Residential People.
Alongside asking May for a random fact about himself, Buckler poses some key questions to the chief of the fledgling portal about how it is aiming to help agents.
- Will the portal take agents' data and sell it back to them?
- How will Joe Public find portals like Residential People?
- If May was an agent, which major portal would he choose and why?
May goes on to tell Buckler that his portal is agent-led and how it is aiming to give income back to agents via a concierge service.
He also explains how the portal is aiming to give key agents 'Class A shares' and 'electronic voting rights', giving them the opportunity to own part of the portal and shape its future.
