Homehere helps UK estate agents work remotely


Homehere, a new digital lead conversion system designed for estate agents in the UK, has launched early to help keep estate agents working during the Covid-19 outbreak thanks to its remote working capabilities.


John Curley of Homehere said: 'Agents have had to furlough staff, close branches and basically shut up shop, yet there is continuing demand in the market, particularly in lettings, as we are still seeing steady lead volumes from the major portals.

'This is particularly frustrating for agents dependent on ageing technology or those managing leads solely through email and branch interaction.'

In response, Homehere is now offering free use of the technology to any UK estate agent who wants to use its capabilities during the lockdown.

'Where Homehere helps is that its always-on automation and communication tools do most of the leg work, including initial contact, qualification, scheduling of video viewings and progression through the pipeline.

'There is no time wasted chasing bad leads as all motivated movers are identified and progressed digitally. The volume and quality of the portals’ leads is tracked and reported, allowing agents to plan their portal marketing spend for the future,' Curley added.

An early adopter of the system is Cardiff-based Jeffrey Ross Estate Agents. Ross Hooper-Nash, founder and managing director said: 'In line with government requirements, all our offices have been closed for a number of weeks now, so I am genuinely delighted to see we are at 80% of turnover compared to this period last year with less than 20% of our staff.

'This was made possible by Homehere’s technology and the growing acceptance of mobile video viewings.'
