Online estate agency, Purplebricks, has been expanding its presence since its launch in Australia three years ago. In reaction to this, the company has brought on a well-known agent to head its new operation in Bathurst, David Chapman.
Chapman started his real estate career in 2012 with First National Real Estate, before becoming the co-owner of LJ Hooker Bathurst in January, 2014.
He was at the helm for more than two years, before moving on to Century 21 Bathurst and then leaving the industry in 2017 for a job that would allow him to spend more time with his young family.
When the opportunity arose to jump back into the industry with Purplebricks, he jumped at the chance.
Chapman said Purplebricks would not only eliminate the issues that led him to leave the real estate industry two years ago, but provide a more cost-effective, transparent option for Bathurst buyers and sellers.
Purplebricks charges a fixed, flat fee of $8,800, regardless of the eventual sale price of a property.
Half of this fee is for marketing and can be paid upon the sale of the property or after six months of a property being on the market, whichever comes first.
