British challenger property portal Boomin has hit the 6,300 agency branches milestone with the latest slew of agency agreements.
The platform also recently announced that Pattinson, an agency in the North-Eastern part of England, was the latest branch to sign up to list on Boomin. Pattinson brings with it 26 branches with a total of around 200 employees.
Caroline Pattinson, Managing Director of Pattinson, explained that even with the agency’s success during lockdown measures, the Pattinson team knew it needed something else to keep up with demand. Signing up with a platform like Boomin would give the agency just that: a support system. Pattinson said:
“Like many agents up and down the country we have been lucky to have experienced some excellent results over the last 18 months with over 100 properties even sold in full lockdown last April. But September is fast approaching, and we need to start our planning now for the market after the ending of the stamp duty holiday.
“We have watched the progress of Boomin over the last few months and feel confident that the time is now right for us to join. I've heard positive feedback from other agents who are already using the platform.
“They are different and the opportunities for new income streams are certainly of interest. We are looking forward to working with the team and making the most of the new features that only Boomin offers. ”
Michael Bruce, CEO and Founder of Boomin, has boasted his pleasure in signing up an agency like Pattinson, stating that shows other agencies that haven’t turned to Boomin yet, what they are missing out on. Bruce said:
“I couldn't be more delighted to welcome Pattinson Estate Agents to the Boomin platform. They are a highly successful, family run, independent agency that has been part of the industry for generations. The ambition and genuine enthusiasm Caroline and the team has for quality agency and for their customers is fantastic.
“Agents are finding that Boomin is not just a 'classified advertiser' and that our DNA is very different. They are finding that we are all about genuine, sustainable innovation that leads the way for everyone, that sets the direction and wakes up the competition. Our continued growth and release of further new and exciting features under development will prove highly effective for all great agents like Pattinson's who are on Boomin, as we enter what may prove to be another changing market landscape for our industry.”
Bruce explained that his company isn’t slowing down its onboarding measures just because Boomin has hit this milestone of over 6,500 agency branch partners.
Last month, the company announced more than 600 branches signed up in May, boosting the company’s onboarding trajectory and making this current milestone and future milestones, more possible.
Boomin is currently free to use. For its agent partners, it is free of obligation until the end of March 2022.
