Leading north west agent Farrell Heyworth return to Zoopla
23rd December 2020
Award winning agent has returned in time to capitalise on the busiest Christmas for the property market in over a decade
Agent operates seven hubs across the North West with over 2,000 properties in stock
Zoopla, the UK’s most comprehensive property destination, has welcomed back Farrell Heyworth. One of the leading agents in the North West of England. Farrell Heyworth has immediately listed over 2,000 properties from its seven branch hubs with the portal.
The news that Farrell Heyworth has decided to rejoin Zoopla comes after Zoopla reported branch numbers were at a three year high with over 18,000 branches and new home sites choosing to partner with the portal.
By returning to Zoopla, Farrell Heyworth will be in prime position to capitalise on the busiest property market in the run up to Christmas for over a decade. Despite the 50 day market closure in England at the start of the first lockdown caused by Covid, the sales pipeline is now 50% larger than this time last year, with 100,000 sales set to spill over into Q1 of 2021.
Commenting on the return, Andy Marshall, Zoopla’s Chief Commercial Officer said: “Farrell Heyworth are one of the leading agents in the North West of England and their teams are renowned for their knowledge of the local market and willingness to go the extra mile for homemovers. We’ve delighted that they’ve chosen to again partner with Zoopla, recognising that our goals of driving more leads and providing even better service are aligned with theirs.”
“It’s become increasingly clear that Zoopla is becoming the portal of choice for agents across the UK. The market is enjoying the busiest Christmas in a decade and we are confident that this will continue into 2021, providing a real opportunity for agents to grow their business during this exciting time.”
Jeremy Collins, Group Director at Farrell Heyworth said: “This year we have made a lot of changes at Farrell Heyworth consolidating the Farrell Heyworth branch network into Hub branches or Super Branches whilst still operating in all of our North West markets. Returning to Zoopla will help support our super branch proposition, offering Vendor’s & Landlord’s properties the widest possible exposure to the market. 2021 will be our 30th year helping clients move & find a new home in the North West, our theme for the new year is ‘Let’s make 2021 the best year ever’, re-joining Zoopla is part of that ambition”
Founded in 2007, Zoopla is a successful, multi-tiered property business offering services to renters, buyers, sellers and landlords. The company returned to private ownership in July 2018 after a purchase by a group led by global private equity firm Silver Lake. Since the purchase a new leadership team has been implementing a focused strategy investing substantially in talent, technology, marketing and sales to help Zoopla enhance the service it offers consumers and to meet its ambitious growth plans.
