Leading Bristol agent Ocean joins Zoopla to leverage portal and software advantage
30th September 2021
Two year agreement will see all of Ocean’s eleven branches list on the portal
Team of over 80 sales employees will also use Zoopla’s hero software brand Alto
Partnership delivers on Zoopla’s vision, providing Ocean with singular web-based solution integrating all aspects of the homemover, renter and landlord experience
Zoopla, the UK’s most comprehensive property destination, is pleased to announce that Bristol-based agent, Ocean, has signed a two-year portal and software contract.
Ocean is Bristol’s largest independent estate agent and has specialised in sales, lettings and property management in the city for over 35 years.
All eleven of Ocean’s branches will list on Zoopla, while sales employees will also have access to Alto as part of the agreement, creating a cost efficient ecosystem for Ocean, setting them up for further success now and in the future, allowing them to build on their marketing leading position.
Central to the partnership will be harnessing Zoopla’s ability to connect Ocean to local homeowners and landlords who are considering listing their property for sale or rent.
The partnership will enable Ocean to build a bigger pipeline of new vendors and landlords, by providing market leading data on what their home is worth. Meanwhile, Zoopla's cloud-based CRM software Alto will keep Ocean's agents connected with these vendors and landlords throughout their selling journeys.
Chris Moody, Associate Director at Ocean Estate Agents said: “We are delighted to further our partnership with Zoopla enabling us to continue providing the best possible service to customers in Bristol & the surrounding areas, whilst presenting properties to even more potential buyers & tenants.
“We always strive to optimise technology whilst never losing the personal touch that Ocean has become synonymous with over the last 35 years. Working closely with Zoopla will enable our clients to have full access to their property case files whenever they want & wherever they are. The ability to monitor viewings, feedback, review offers and track sales progress will revolutionise the buying and selling experience, ensuring the whole process is more transparent, streamlined and simple.”
Commenting on the partnership, Zoopla’s Chief Commercial Officer, Andy Marshall, said: “Ocean is a truly dynamic local market leader and, like us, they have ambitious plans for growth. We’re looking forward to working closely with the Ocean team to support them with their goals and capitalise on the opportunities presented by the changing dynamics of the property industry.”
