Digital Property Group has just signed estate agency branch number 12,000, increasing its total by 1,951 since the start of the year.
DPG says this means it is 19 percent short of rightmove.co.uk’s total, which was up two percent since the start of 2011 to 18,480 offices and developments, according to its latest results.
DPG puts the increase in customers down to two appointments: Greg Bryce as UK and International Sales Director and former Rightmove Sales Manager Neil Comper as National Sales Manager. “Since January they’ve been prodigiously supported by a sales team that’s grown in size by 40 percent,” DPG explains.
“This isn’t a case of DPG increasing its share from a small base, we’ve performed consistently well over a long period of time,” says DPG chief executive Mark Milner. “This year our advertisers have received even greater exposure and enquiries plus a range of new Business Services products such as Market View.”
To mark the signing of its 12,000th branch – Bridgewater-based sales and letting business Keys Estate Agents – DPG donated £1,200 to the Estate Agency Foundation.
