Starberry is delighted to partner with another specialist in the proptech constellation in our drive to improve our clients’ experience and enrich our estate agency website designs. Our journey with OneDome starts here, enhancing our built-in valuation, booking and local insight tools.
OneDome’s tools include online booking widgets for in-person valuations and viewings, as well as an online valuation product for driving sales leads. Estate agents can also install an autoresponder that replies automatically to email enquiries from property portals, as well as technology that verifies sales leads using publicly available information about the customer online.
Babek Ismayil, founder and CEO of OneDome, said, “our B2B strategy is to offer property servicing companies technology that will help them to grow their business, improve the quality of their leads, streamline the sales process, and even offer a “self-service” option. Our digital products for estate agents will perfectly complement Starberry’s experience of designing best-in-class websites for the industry.”
Will Lownsbrough, CIO of Starberry, said, “we’re committed to providing our clients with the latest in technology and innovation, whether that be through our own R&D agenda, or by partnering with businesses like OneDome. We have been impressed with the way OneDome has developed and their toolset complements our needs perfectly.”
In a further exciting development to the benefit of Starberry’s clients, OneDome has agreed a partnership with alive chat provider, which is part of its wider strategy of partnering with players within the property technology space that offer new potential. OneDome’s aim is to help join up the property transaction process for both consumers and property professionals.
Ismayil explained, “the property industry is vast and fragmented, and our ambition is to help and facilitate the current estate agency model. Both partnerships are in line with our vision that collaboration, rather than disruption, is the way forward in the property space. For the whole industry, we believe innovative collaboration and technology are the keys to creating a better industry for both property service companies and, at the end of the day, consumers.”
