A platform has launched offering both landlords and letting agents a new way to find and instruct tradespeople.
Rezigo is launching into a crowded market, with several online competitors offering comparable services including RatedPeople, CheckaTrade and TrustedTraders.
The platform offers property managers the ability to source local conveyancers, electricians, locksmiths, plumbers, cleaners, removals and storage services, waste clearance and maintenance providers.
One of its two founders is Danny Neiberg, who has a 20-year track record as a residential landlord and also operates property buying service Property Rescue.
He claims that Rezigo is a product of his and co-founder Simone Neiberg’s extensive knowledge of customer pain-points which they have used to build a ‘sophisticated portal that lets users compare trade quotes, book jobs, pay suppliers, and leave ratings and reviews all in one place’.
They claim that hundreds of suppliers have already been signed up to use the service, which goes live today.
The pair say they searched for technology that would help them source and manage all aspects of their property projects and, when they couldn’t find it, built their own platform.
It claims to be unique because landlords and letting agents can book in appointments with a few clicks, and because it eliminates supplier ‘phone rounds’.
“We built a bespoke platform for my existing property business, which has evolved over the years in terms of functionality and complexity,” says Danny Neiberg (pictured).
“And so, equipped with a solid understanding of the stresses associated with the home services sector, we set out to create the ultimate prop-tech solution.”
“I’ve been absolutely floored by the reaction so far – from both suppliers and would-be customers.”
