Boomin has announced that it has secured the support of ten more estate agencies, all of which have chosen to be founder members.
In what is the third signing announcement this month, Boomin, a soon-to-launch property portal, has confirmed that the latest agents backing the website are Humberts, Newman Property Experts, Beals, Keatons, Hurford Salvi Carr, MyLondonHome, Venmores, Nock Deighton, Alexander & Co Group, and West Wales Properties.
Duncan Ley, director, Humberts, said: “The preview of the site has shown that the new portal has completely re-considered what can be offered to the public beyond a simple list of houses for sale.
“The additional content will encourage longer engagement and could capture buyers and sellers at a far earlier stage of their journey. Humberts are constantly reviewing how we can offer a broader service to our customers and clients and Boomin is doing the same.”
Boomin says that any new agents who sign-up now will qualify for ‘founder member’ status, which offers various benefits, including a free equity share allocation and use of the platform itself until January 2022 at no cost and obligation whilst earning new and recurring revenues.
Michael Bruce, executive chairman and founder of Boomin, said: “The engagement and reaction from agents across the country, both large and small, who have seen the platform and challenged the leadership team in webinars and presentations has been fantastic and this is increasingly evident in the rush to sign-up as founder members.
“Their desire to give their customers the very best experience, the widest possible exposure for their home and be part of transforming the property market for everyone has been the driving force behind their decision to support Boomin.
“2021 may prove to be a difficult year for the market so giving agents access to the latest portal technology without cost, with a view to increasing the number of property transactions and earning them additional income from new services centred on the broader home is widely welcomed by agents looking to the future.”
A number of major operators have expressed support for Boomin, including Century 21, Hunters, Foxtons, Chancellors, Bidmead Cook, Balgores, Miles & Barr, among others.
Sean Newman, chairman, Newman Property Experts, said: “I fully support Michael, Kenny and the Boomin team. The new platform is very innovative, which is needed in a market that needs a shake-up. This will be great for consumers and Estate Agents so I am very excited about the launch.”
Michael Nettleton, chairman, Nock Deighton, added: “As a forward-thinking agent, we are extremely excited to be a part of Boomin’s new journey and our team are keen to see how the property market transforms.”
