Rightmove has told agents – don’t call us today.
The portal is taking its customer service and sales teams off duty, so that they can attend a company conference and training day.
In an email to agents, the firm says: “To minimise disruption, we will increase our customer service staffing levels both before and after the 5th.
“Should you have an urgent query on the day, we would ask that you email us and we will do our best to respond in a timely manner.
“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.”
One agent told Eye he had not seen such a closure before, and said Rightmove was having a “love fest” which would include a briefing on Agents’ Mutual.
