Leading North East agent signs long-term agreement to list at OnTheMarket.com
OnTheMarket plc, the agent-backed company which operates the OnTheMarket.com property portal, has announced that leading full-service North East agent Pattinson has signed up to advertise its UK residential sales and lettings properties at OnTheMarket.com.
Under the long-term agreement, Pattinson has also agreed actively to promote the OnTheMarket.com portal brand with digital and branch-based marketing activity. The agent operates a network of 27 branches within the North East and works in partnership with hundreds of agents across the UK as Pattinson Auctions.
Since its Admission to AIM alongside a capital raise in February this year, OnTheMarket has grown rapidly. On 23 August, it announced that it had already added more than 5,000 offices, bringing the total offices under contract to over 10,500.
Caroline Pattinson, Managing Director of Pattinson, says: “We did not join OnTheMarket.com in its early days but have watched closely and we have been impressed by the momentum building. We are now delighted to announce that we will be listing our properties on OnTheMarket.
“We are proud to be an independent family run business and we always aim to do what we believe is in the best interests of our clients and providing maximum exposure for their properties is essential.
“The fact that the portal is agent backed also attracts us, the property market moves best when agents co-operate to help chains progress etc. We have had great success working with other estate agents in auctions and working with an agent backed portal makes complete sense to us.”
Ian Springett, Chief Executive Officer of OnTheMarket plc, says: “We are very pleased that Pattinson have joined OnTheMarket. As a fiercely independent firm with a strong customer service ethos, Pattinson has achieved an enviable market share and reputation in the North East and the firm will undoubtedly strengthen our position in the area with its property listings and positive support for our proposition.”
