Open Agent is an angel-backed real estate startup that helps Aussie home owners find the best agent to sell their property. Using official sales data and reviews to rank Australian real estate agents, it helps to connect potential vendors with the best agents for any home sale scenario.
Whether you have an apartment in Croydon or a semi-detached home in Kensington that you want to sell, all you have to do is quickly enter the details on OpenAgent.
Then the team will connect you with the agent most likely to meet your needs (whether that’s achieving a top sale price, making a quick sale or just ensuring
you get genuinely good service).
Working like a TripAdvisor of property sales, agents must garner good reviews to be able to generate more business. Just the thing that good agents can use, great for homeowners who are selling their properties and terrible for those dodgy agents.
The ranking system helps to keep the industry honest and accountable, and makes sure agents are always competing to get the best for their clients. Getting a positive review or consistently achieving high sales prices for the area does wonders for lead generation.
Founded by Zoe Pointon and Marta Higuera, OpenAgent recently secured a million dollars in investment. The company has already experienced rapid growth, accelerating massively over the past year and doubling in size since the start of 2014.
So far, connected 2,000 people with the best agents and are in the process of assisting the sale of $1 billion worth of property.
