Strike, the hybrid agency, formerly Housesimple, claims to be the fastest growing estate agency brand in the UK.
The company has shared with the trade press new data, which it says has been substantiated by TwentyCi, that appears to support the firm’s claim. See the table below.
Carson Roen, chief marketing officer at Strike, commented: “Strike are the fastest growing estate agent brand in the UK.”
Strike is trying to scale up its online offering to increase its market share after securing fresh investment earlier this year.
The hybrid agency aims to undercut traditional high street estate agents by offering vendors a free property sales service.
The company, which launched in Yorkshire and the North West in June 2019, plans to expand, with a view to offer its full service nationwide from early next year, after raising £11m via its latest funding round.
The investment has been partly provided by two new backers of the business – Sir Peter Wood, via SPWOne, and Channel 4 Ventures – with further funding from existing investors Freston Ventures and Toscafund.
Strike has its sights set on becoming the largest UK estate agency brand next year, surpassing both traditional and online counterparts.
