As the portal battle hots up, OpenBrix are, yes, yet another online platform trying to break into the space dominated by Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket.
While the main portals are often panned by agents for the amount of money they charge in fees, despite the volume of leads they often deliver, one agent has expressed genuine satisfaction at the service provided by OpenBrix, and the company is keen to shout from the rooftops about it.
Below is a letter received by the OpenBrix team this week from an agency, Jack Barclay estate agents, attesting to the OpenBrix platform working for them and yielding £1,470 passively from using the platform to help a small selection of tenants.
Mizan Abdu-Kadir cites a £210 profit per property let in additional revenue from 23 ancillary products sold for them.
Adam Pigott, CEO of OpenBrix, said: “Property portals can no longer get away with being just search facilities alone. They must evolve into platforms that make life easier and better value for the consumer whilst supporting and paying revenue to estate and letting agents.
“Our process is proven to work in doing that and provides a super-simple revenue model that pays 100% of the additional revenue earned from conveyancing, insurance, utility switching and tenant services directly to the agent – not just some of it. We guarantee that will always be the case too.”

Dear Team at Open Brix,
I recently joined OpenBrix as I had heard about the revenue earning ability they have on their portal. In the first working week of using their partnership options, my agency agreed 7 lettings. I followed the instructions and asked the prospective tenants to register at OpenBrix.co,uk, even though these leads came from elsewhere, and then share their ID as part of the Right to Rent Procedure. I then paired their ID’s with teh respective properties. To my delight, I logged in to my OpenBrix Dashboard today and noted that 23 products have been sold so far by chosen partners. My pending referral fees are all broken down for clarity and are showing a total of £1,470. I am really impressed!
