An online service that enables estate agents to fight off hybrid competitors such as Purplebricks and HouseSimple now has 30 partner estate agents using the service, it has revealed.
Love2Move describes itself as being in its ‘infancy’ and was launched in April 2017 year by Mark Worrall and his mother Georgina Cox. The company has also now added a third director, Worrall’s wife Rachel, now that the company has begun growing. She will be heading up its marketing effort and previously worked for the company as a consultant.
“I’m delighted we are now in a position to take the business to the next stage of development; this is the perfect time for me to join love2move on a permanent basis,” says Rachel (left).
As well as signing up 30 partner estate agents to use its service, Love2Move has secured ‘significant investment’ for the business, saying that the company is “ideally placed in the estate agency market following the shift towards online services which will result in substantial agent recruitment over the next year and, consequently, significant sales growth”. It has also secured the backing of FIA chairman Graham Lock, who turned up to its recent second anniversary party.
Its partner agents are mostly in the north at the moment near its Leeds base but also in SW London and Torquay.
This includes two branches of MovingWorks, four branches of Edwards Grounds, three branches of Kirkham Property and two branches of Home Truths.
Love2Move is a hybrid estate agency that offers consumers the ability to sell their home for a flat fee of £895 but with local ‘franchises’ held by the 30 estate agents who do the face-to-face work on the ground.
