Emoov named in Top 50 Innovators of 2015: The beginning of the end for rip off, real estate agency

Jun 18, 2015

Emoov.co.uk have been named in the top 50 shortlist for “Innovator of the Year” at the London Innovators Awards, held tonight, Thursday 18th June.

Britain’s most visionary online estate agent joins an array of companies recognised for driving change within their respective sector, due to the company’s customer driven culture and pioneering approach to selling property online, for fees starting at £495+VAT. No other online estate agent made it to the prestigious list.

Launched in partnership with IBM, Crowd Cube, Protein and The Collective, it will be the first event to champion some of the UK’s most radical start-ups, with 50 different companies battling it out for the title of Innovator of the Year.

Amongst the sectors represented are online estate agency, medical technology and mobile ticketing to name but a few. Each of them being recognised for challenging their industry’s most established firms and their approach to business.

Emoov has been disrupting the traditional high street estate agency model since 2010, providing a higher level of customer service for a much lower fee, regardless of the property price.

London Innovators described Emoov as: “The beginning of the end for rip off, real estate agency”

Founder and CEO of Emoov.co.uk, Russell Quirk, commented:

“We’re proud to be on the shortlist for Innovator of the Year 2015 and even more so, to be recognised for the emphasis we place on pleasing our customers as well as the technology we are employing to make the home selling process better.

We were shortlisted because of our dedicated approach to customer service as well as driving innovation in the sector through tech.

This sits well with a similar accolade won by us in 2014 as awarded by the Financial Times.

The high street estate agency sector is broken and Emoov are leading the way to fix it, by providing a low cost, high value service to property sellers.

There aren’t many companies out there that reward their staff on the service they provide, rather than the amount of sales they make, but that’s why we’ve made the top 50!”
