p dir=”ltr”>The leader of the Say No To Rightmove campaign has denied that he has received any kind of kickback from rivals Zoopla or OnTheMarket and has refuted the accusation that he is planning to build or back a new portal.
He also denied that he was seeking to bring down Rightmove in order to raise the value of the OnTheMarket stock that his company owns as a Gold member.
The questions were put to Sargent, who is the CEO of a prominent agency group in the South of England, over a YouTube interview released today.
UK agents are notorious for their differing opinions and lack of a collective voice, but this time there may be enough momentum and unity to achieve the stated aim of the group according to Sargent: “a more balanced portal environment, more innovation and greater competition”
Several other anti-Rightmove groups have come under the Say No To Rightmove banner in recent weeks and it seems that the ball is well and truly in the portal giant’s court. As their stock struggles to recover from the COVID-19 hit, will we see a gesture of appeasement from Rightmove soon?
