Online and hybrid rivals of eMoov hoover up former employees

Many former field-based Local Property Agents at the company have been quick to secure new roles, although many of its senior head office staff have been less successful.

Online and hybrid agents are taking on many former employees of eMoov including Purplebricks, OnlineEstateAgents.com, Keller Williams and Housesimple, research by The Negotiator can reveal.

Of the 50 or more local property experts formerly working for eMoov on a self employed basis, half have yet to find new roles while 10% have secured roles outside the property industry and a further 20% have found roles at traditional agents.

One example is Paul Radloff, who was a local property agent for eMoov in the South East but is now working for Sequence as a branch manager at its office in Lewes.

But a fifth have secured jobs at former competitors of eMoov’s including one of the most senior, Richard Olliffe (picture, left), the company’s former Group Sales Director since November 2017. He has started a role at Purplebricks as a Sales Director.

And eMoov’s Midlands Territory Manager Ben Burgin has joined Housesimple as an estate agent covering Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire. He joins at least three other former eMoov field representatives at the Essex-based hybrid agency including Reece Maddick and Jack Malnick.

Malnick was formerly National Sales Director at eMoov but is now Housesimple’s Operations Director.

Also, two former eMoov local property agents have joined Keller Williams.

But for eMoov’s senior team finding new roles is taking more time with the exceptoin of former CEO Russell Quirk who has set up his own PR consultancy. But CFO Frank McGlade, CMO Lucy Milne and CTO Ivan Ramirez are all still listed as employees of the company on their LinkedIn profiles.
