UK Housing Minister Uses Zoopla to Get Message to Agents

The Secretary of State for Housing, Robert Jenwick, used a post on Zoopla’s website late on Friday to get the message across to UK agents that they were the spearhead of the country’s economic recovery.

In the 450 word column, Jenwick suggests that the housing market is the driving force behind the nation’s economy and was always likely to be one of the first industries to be allowed to resume.

“We all need to work together safely as we rebuild our economy and restore livelihoods, starting with the housing market”


Usually, pronouncements from the government related to the housing sector have come at industry-wide forums and as such, the use of Zoopla’s website as a medium is something of a break from protocol and a PR triumph for the portal company.

If any housing ministers from around the world are reading this and would like to write a column for us, please do get in touch.
