Zoopla's Chief Executive Officer Charlie Bryant has stated that a total of 2,000 branches have joined Zoopla since the beginning of July of last year to the end of this April.

Bryant said: “Some of these are new joiners and others have returned to us having left because of the ‘one other portal’ rule.

“While there have also been some losses, due to branch closures or mergers, I am delighted to say that overall we are seeing net gains in agency members.”

Bryant would not be drawn on exact total numbers, but said that Zoopla is setting out its stall as offering both agents and the public something different.

He said that among consumers there is strong brand recognition of Zoopla, and for agents there is renewed focus on delivering vendor leads.

Bryant said that competition amongst the portals is no bad thing, saying that choice for consumers is important.

Bryant explaine: “However, we also recognise the difficult challenges being faced by agents, and we see it as our job to help them."
