New proptech platform claims to help agents retain 80% of revenues during crisis

Created by a former estate agent from Cardiff, Homehere says its ability to track leads and help agents work from home is a 'game changer'.

A proptech platform has been launched that claims to help agencies achieve 80% of their revenues despite the Coronavirus lockdown.

Homehere was launched two years ago by former Cardiff student lettings agent Lou Quinn with tech expert and angel investor John Curley.

Their platform claims to streamline the lettings process, enable home working and improve landlord and tenant communications.

But the pair picked an unfortunate time to plan their proptech launch – in the middle of the Coronavirus lockdown. Nevertheless, the pair have told The Negotiator that this could be the platform’s making because it will help agents survive the crisis.

“Having a presence on the high street has served the industry well but with reduced footfall and the increasing demand for 24/7 service, a hub-based approach model is going to be the future of estate agency,” says Curley.

Lead tracking

Homehere is a lead tracker and qualifier but also helps agents understand the value they get from Rightmove, Zoopla and OTM’s alerts.

Until deciding to launch the proptech business and work full time on it, Quinn worked at leading Cardiff estate agency and auction house Jeffrey Ross. It has begun using Homehere and, the company claims, it has been instrumental in helping the agency retain 80% of its revenue during the Coronavirus crisis.

“Homehere allows us to communicate instantly, to chat with our clients and it also monitors key sales staff, so it’s no surprises that during a very difficult period we have seen amazing results,” says its boss Ross Hooper-Nash.
