Letting agents and property managers have a new way to co-ordinate maintenance reports and inspections, with a ‘refreshing’ proptech platform called Sorbet.
The Cardiff-based innovation is the brainchild of former contractor Brooke Williams, who believed there had to be a better way for agents, landlords, tenants and contractors to communicate, coming up with Sorbet.
Sorbet’s software helps with transparency, accuracy and audit trails for the rental market. Letting agents, landlords, tenants and contractors can raise and monitor maintenance requests and jobs through the platform.
Brooke teamed up with former Director of Dezrez, Richard Wilson to set up Sorbet, recruiting Kevin Hughes, former Marketing and Finance Director of Gocompare. com, as a non-executive Director.
Brooke says, “Co-ordinating maintenance appointments and chasing reports for lots of properties can be a real headache; I know, I’ve been there. Juggling landlords, tenants and contractors, whilst keeping a detailed audit trail is tricky and cumbersome. That’s why we created Sorbet.
“Sorbet is a helpful software assistant for letting agents and property managers that tracks communication between the agent, contractors, landlords and tenants – automatically booking contractors when reports and inspections are due, or deal with tenant maintenance requests without the agent’s input.”
Sorbet offers a six-month free trial as part of its beta launch. Agents who take up the programme will be able to offer the Sorbet apps to contractors and tenants completely free for six months. All of Sorbet’s apps communicate with each other, so agents will never be left out of the loop.
