Former Rightmove commercial director Jason Busby has joined soon-to-launch sales progression start-up BreezeMove as a non-executive director.
The appointment, which is in addition to his work for recruitment firm Rayner Personnel, is designed to bring his 15 years’ working in sales at Rightmove to bear on the fledgling firm.
“Over the last 15 years I’ve wondered how technology can fix the problem of protracted property transactions, the related uncertainty and the waste,” says Busby.
“That technology now exists in BreezeMove and I am excited to be involved in assisting with the development of the product to really help vendors and in turn how that will benefit the industry.”
Liverpool-based BreezeMove has been built to align the estate agent, the conveyancer and respective buyers and sellers in each transaction.
It has already signed up several well-known conveyancing firms including Michael Rose Bayliss, Jackson Lees and LawComm Solicitors.
The platform created a considerable stir a few weeks ago when it announced that it would be free for agents to use but pays them a referral fee of approximately £500 per transaction once a house move completes, and is already been trialled by several multi-branch estate agencies.
“All of us within the property industry accept that the moving transaction is broken and getting worse,” says Phil Melia, CEO and co-founder Breezemove.
“Our technology will solve that, bringing down the time taken between offer and completion and reducing fall-throughs and stress accordingly.”
