Cribb is running a limited-time trial service that lets buyer-sellers access exclusive stock and manage their purchase without an agent.

Dubbed “Cribb Coach”, subscribers will be able to search each other’s properties and arrange purchases privately. They can also employ the help of an agent recommended by the Cribb Coach.

The Dutch firm, previously known as Cirkel, is a members-only property platform, and the firm says it launched the service after users said they wanted an option to explore the platform without having to sign on with an agent.

Jeroen Wilhelm, Managing Director at Cribb said:

“We did some research with our clients and found that people want to experience our platform without signing any contracts with an agent—but that they still wanted one!

“The Cribb Coach supports our clients through the buying process if they wish to handle their purchase personally, or the service can help you find the right agent in your neighbourhood.

“So far, agents have reacted positively to the service. Once they get a lead from the Cribb Coach, it is considered a hot lead.”

Cribb invites buyers to enter a closed platform and offers them unique listings from other buyers on the condition that members also present their own properties for sale. Properties on Cribb are not available through public portals such as Funda.
