With the recent launch of their agency membership package, it is clear that things have moved up a gear at the industry's go to destination for all things Proptech - Kerfuffle, not least so with their most recent appointment.
As Proptech’s self professed Willy Wonka himself, Simon Whale told us "The agency membership package has already received some great feedback from the agents that have been trialling it for us, but we want to make sure that we continue to deliver what agents want to see most from their favourite Proptech marketplace and review site. I've always said that the gap between what agents need and what suppliers think agents need or want, can be narrowed by encouraging as much dialogue with agents as possible. But more importantly we would hope that the agent voice continues to be heard loudly at Kerfuffle, and as far as I'm concerned they don't come much louder than David Mintz. That's why Kerfuffle are happy to welcome David onboard as their Agency tzar. He’s basically here to keep me honest 😂!”
The outspoken Manchester based estate agent will be a familiar face and voice to those lucky few who have tuned into the Kerfuffle Podcast which he co-presents (40-60%) with Simon Whale. Fans of the Podcast have often heard Mintz continually fighting the agent's corner, holding suppliers and industry trade bodies to account on their shows.
"I applaud this move by Kerfuffle to include agent's representation on their board, not least because they are paying me for it." Said Mintz.
"We are going to make sure that the agents corner is always represented and that the agency subscription package continues to perform and delivers value way beyond its ticket price. I want agents to know that I will be working closely with suppliers to make sure that they continue to understand the ever changing needs of an industry that I'm proud to say has adapted well to the challenges thrown at it in the past year. I'll be continuing to be working at the very coal face of the industry in my twenty fifth year of house selling, but I'll be making time to ensure that agents have the unbiased voice that they need and access to the best tools to allow them to continue operating as exceptional estate agents."
"Currently the agency package delivers a superb training platform with some of the industry's biggest names as trainers, consultants and outstanding support. If you haven't already had an MOT it's well worth your while trying it. This is about assessing the needs of your business and knowing where the pain points are. There's a solution for every challenge thrown up in our lives as agents. I believe that Kerfuffle is that first step to winning time, more instructions and peace of mind that your suppliers are delivering value for money. "
