British hybrid portal, Zoopla, has just announced the purchase of Yourkeys, one of the biggest property software solutions for housebuilders in the country.
Bringing with it will be 25 of Yourkeys prime experts, including its CEO, Riccardo Iannucci-Dawson. YourKeys solutions will then be integrated into Zoopla’s suite of real estate products for its userbase, including its next-gen Alto product.
Zoopla CEO Charlie Bryant said:
“When we recently announced our vision we made a commitment to providing our customers with the very best software and services. With the acquisition of Yourkeys we’ve absolutely done that. Their technology and the service they offer are truly best in class, providing a smoother, better and more comprehensive experience for housebuilders.
“Alongside the systems and software, more importantly, we’ve acquired a true team of superstars, led by CEO and founder Riccardo Iannucci-Dawson. We are thrilled that such a talented, customer-centric team has chosen to join the team here at Zoopla and I’m confident that they will help drive everyone at Zoopla to even greater heights in the years to come.”
How Yourkeys works is simple. It offers an avenue for buyers and sellers to connect with housebuilders to help them sell new homes more efficiently with the help of its real-time reservation-to-completion software platform. Its software is integrated with all major housebuilder CRMs and will become part of Zoopla’s real estate feature offerings with the completion of this acquisition.
Yourkeys CEO Riccardo Iannucci-Dawson said:
“This is an incredibly exciting next step for the entire Yourkeys team who are as passionate as I am about delivering tech transformation within the property industry. We’ve now found a home inside the most innovative property marketplace in the country and, together, we can fulfil our ambitions to transform the way properties are bought and sold. We could not be happier to join the Zoopla family and are looking forward to sharing the benefits of this alliance with our customers and partners.”
