Liberkeys, which launched in January 2018, incubated at Station F by EDHEC and then at Village by CA Paris, has just completed its first round of fundraising. For a total of one million euros, it brings together Crédit Agricole Immobilier and a group of business angels (ShareInvest, CAPVER Invest and SAFIN).
Conceived by Thomas Venturini, Julien Watry and Anthony Peyron, Liberkeys offers a turnkey real estate sales offer. With a fixed commission of 2,990 euros paid in case of signing the transaction, the startup offers sellers support ranging from the estimation of their property until the signature of the authentic deed at the notary.
Liberkeys is thus positioned in line with the new real estate agencies, operating on the principle of pricing package: include this model the French Proprioo or the British pioneer Purplebricks which the German media group Axel Springer has just 11.5% of capital. These new agencies are often described as “hybrid” agencies, for their model that seeks to reconcile the best of agency sales and sales between individuals. Their technology platform generally helps to empower the seller while offering a range of services usually provided by real estate agencies: estimation, completion of visits, photography, monitoring of the application and support until the authentic act.
This financing should enable Liberkeys to accelerate its growth in Paris and Île-de-France, particularly in terms of business and technology. The startup, which now has 12 employees, wants to double its workforce by the end of the year.
