BestAgent | A no-cost portfolio management tool
Annemarie Proudfoot, BestAgent’s head of customer relations, explains how BestAgent created a simple, reliable tool to help agents get the job done, at no cost.
Name of product | BestAgent
Price | BestAgent is a no-cost solution for single office, independent agents to run their agency on any device, including mobile. Our income is generated from referral commissions when we introduce BestAgent users to our partners, however our users are under no obligation to use our partners’ services. We also analyse property data for trends in national and regional house prices, which is valuable information, but we need agents’ permission to do both of these once they activate an account.
Target | Single office independent estate and letting agents who aim to deliver a personal service, compete against corporates and online agents, and save money wherever possible.
Challenge | With proptech thriving across the UK, many agents have been gifted with bells and whistles of technology, in an attempt to help them achieve more from their agency during trying times. However, this flood of innovation often muddles what agents really need: a tool to help them conduct business, seamlessly and without fuss. Enter, BestAgent.
Solution | We have created an easy, no-cost solution for agents to run their agency from anywhere, using any device. Agents can now market their properties onto leading portals, their agency website and social media, register and store applicant information in compliance with GDPR, and create a fully-responsive, mobile friendly, SEO-ready website in minutes.
Results | More than 200 agents have already set up accounts with BestAgent and even though we have only recently launched, BestAgent already has the support from some of the industry’s well-known service providers including The ValPal Network, BriefYourMarket, Legal for Landlords and Kremer Signs. Accounts are being created and great reviews are coming in.
