The former lettings director of PurpleBricks Richard Jacques has launched a new online property investment marketplace that lists properties in both the U.K. and overseas.
Investerge has been created to link estate agents with property investors. Agents benefit from referral earning opportunities when they recommend an investor. Regional estate agents looking to broaden the services they provide can launch a potential new revenue stream by identifying and referring customers interested in property investment to investors.
Jacques (LinkedIn profile) was with PurpleBricks for more than five years until May. He ran the company’s specialist investment division before taking charge of lettings.
Investerge has already announced its first partnership with one of the largest global estate agencies: Keller Williams. It allows Keller Williams’ customer’s access to a property investment marketplace in the U.K.
The company operates as an international investment portal for properties in the buy-to-let, residential and commercial property sectors.
“As a start-up, we have a vision of the way a new generation of investors will want to work and invest,” Jacques said. “We are building technology that we believe will change the property investment industry and bring a new fresh approach to the sector.
“We aim to be the UK’s central investment solution that property investors, estate agents and property brokers embrace to enhance their offering and provide new business opportunities for all.”
“The first part of the partnership with Keller Williams has already started with the development of a unique introducer app which provides the team with immediate access to our investment marketplace.”
