Irish proptech startup, Offr has been featured  on Start-up of the Week. Offr looks to help home hunters and owners to more quickly complete they real estate transactions on a more transparent platform.

Offr CEO and Founder Robert Hoban has worked in the Irish property sector for two decades, specializing in the sale of commercial and residential properties. Over the course of his career, he has overseen the exchange of more than 6,000 Irish properties – 30pc of which were traded online.

Hoban describes himself as a vocal advocate for the advancement of technology, transparency and information in the property sector.

That’s why he created Offr – a tool that enables buyers to click a button on an estate agent’s website, which allows them to see offers made by other potential buyers and place their own offer with “trust and transparency”.

Transparency tool

“The button enables sellers to track the progress of a sale on their mobile device or laptop, in real time. They are instantly alerted when an offer is received, if there is an upcoming viewing or if legal documents have been updated,” Hoban explained.

“Similarly, buyers can book a viewing online, upload proof of funds and ID, make an offer, pay a deposit, connect to their solicitor and sign contracts – all with a few taps of their smartphone. Behind the scenes, Offr connects the estate agents with the solicitors and banks to digitize the entire end-to-end sale process.”
