Finding an agent
Existing search and discovery to find real estate agents is inconvenient and time consuming.
Sellers and landlords announce the availability of a property sale or lease. Agents then engage in a competitive tender based on cost, service and reputation.
Knowing when someone is looking for a real estate agent is inexact and understanding why a lead converts is unscientific.
Sellers and landlords create a market for their opportunity. Agents connect directly with willing proprietors and can compare each others' proposals.
Every agent has a different agreement, and every jurisdiction has different rules. When sellers and landlords engage a new agent or change jurisdiction, they must inconveniently check the agreement suits their needs.
We have standardised the sales agency agreement and leasing agency agreement across jurisdictions and made it part of transacting through Vendorable. This helps promote liquidity in the market for listings.
The way information is communicated to the seller or landlord on the progress of a sale or lease differs from agent to agent. Consequently, it is difficult to measure performance levels across service providers.
We have made reporting to proprietors uniform. This ensures a pre-defined level of communication is achieved. High-volume transactors are able to analyze sales, leases and service provision in aggregate.
All agents understand the power of social proof. But when every agent has glowing client testimonials and service ratings, these no longer become a point of differentiation.
Agents' skills are verified by quantitative analysis of their performance. Property owners see who is currently performing, in what locations, and segments.
