OpenBrix, a challenger portal, has announced that John Hards has joined its board. John has extensive experience from his prominent industry roles, for which he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement award by The Negotiator.
John said, “I have worked with the Openbrix team with this unique portal based on next generation technology that will enable tenants to have their own sovereign identity that will carry their data including rental credit history. This is a genuine solution to the portal space, providing many additional benefits at a fixed affordable cost”.
Adam Pigott, CEO, said, “Many UK agents are fed up with the way the portals have treated them. No rate card, no level playing field, no trust. Agents’ data – the new gold – is captured and sold. The same happens with the applicant’s data, they enquire about a property and then the agents get a huge bill for placing their hard-fought instructions onto the portals.”
Adam said, “I have never met anyone who is so well respected in the property industry. His knowledge is second to none and we are privileged to have him on board.”
OpenBrix is built on blockchain and offers a global first of a B2C ledger for tenants to hold their own data with their own sovereign ID, their pre-verified Right to Rent data, to have an immutable record of their rental payment history and have the option of having these rental payments read by OpenBrix’s partner, CreditLadder, to influence their credit histories and scores by Experian and Equifax.
