Our brand proposition and our multi-channel marketing investment have proven effective in attracting active property-seekers to the portal. Many of our agent shareholders and customers are choosing to list their properties on a ‘New & exclusive’ basis, 24 hours or more before Rightmove or Zoopla, and we are generating greater value than ever for our agents and new homes developers.”
