An independent estate agency in Seaford, East Sussex, has been crowned the Best Environmental Business of the Year in the Seahaven Business Awards 2016.Newberry Tully collected the award on 6th May at the event organised by the Newhaven Chamber of Commerce and Seaford and Peacehaven Chambers of Commerce.The agency uses solar energy to power its office, an electric company car called Sparky, low energy LED lights and a policy of recycling as much as possible and has a strong track record of supporting community clubs and groups.Company partners, Andrew Tully and Stephen Newberry, said that being green is so important to them. Stephen said, “We are always looking at ways in which we can make our business more environmentally friendly. Andrew and I are fascinated by how new technology can improve the way things are done and reduce the impact we have on the environment.“We live and work in a beautiful part of the world and we want to do our bit to keep it that way.Andrew added: “I have young children and by doing all we can for the environment and sustainability makes me feel as if we are doing something very positive for them and for future generations.”The agency is also a big supporter of what it calls the area’s ‘social environment.’ Stephen added, “We believe that the social environment is really important to the area and that’s why we support so many local clubs and groups. Seaford is a special place and not just because of the beautiful beach and countryside which surrounds us. We believe the community spirit within our town is also something to be proud of and we’re delighted to lend a hand whenever we can.”green agency Newberry Tully award Best Environmental Business of the Year Seahaven Business Awards 2016 May 18, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Online lettings platform Howsy has bought former rival Upad out of liquidation for an undisclosed sum and will run the business separately, The Negotiator can reveal, hot on the heels of its Urban.co.uk acquisition in September when it also announced a further £5 million fundraise.Upad went into liquidation in mid-October after founder James Davis said ill health had led him to discontinue the business.Howsy CEO Calum Brannan (pictured, above) says Davis has been ‘extremely helpful’ during the process, and that the purchase includes the brand name, technology, landlord client list and website.Brannan has also revealed that, although all Upad’s staff were made redundant in October, Howsy has tracked many of them down and a number have now re-joined the business.“They were key to building the Upad brand, we are keen to ensure that they are part of the next stage of the business,” he says.“We’re going to revive the brand name and build upon it, making sure that we learn from all of the great work that has gone into building such a well-known and respected name.“Upad’s technology delivers some fantastic solutions, and their loyal customer base represents a cross-section of UK landlords who we hope we can continue to deliver a great service.”ComplementaryBrannan says Upad will be operated as an independent but complementary brand and that “different landlords have very different needs, and we are keen to ensure that we cater for all those needs”, he says.“Over time, as the brands develop and we gather more feedback from customers, we may decide to integrate the organisations a little more, but there is certainly no rush.”Howsy and Upad are similar, but different businesses. Howsy runs a three-tier fee structure that includes tenant finding and on-boarding, property management and a premium service.Upad’s service offers is largely a tenant finding service, with rent collection as a bolt-on, but does not include traditional property management. Howsy says it will be contacting all former Upad customers over the next few days and that for many of them it will be ‘business and usual”.calum brannan Howsy james davis upad January 13, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 14th January 2020 at 4:54 pmIt will be interesting to see if the current trend of buying online agencies once they have failed, and of course are free of incumbent debt, proves to be good business. Emoov 2 seems to have made minimal progress after 12-months and other concerns that have been hoovered up have yet to turn a penny. Calum Brannan is a very capable man, as indeed is James Davis the former owner of Upad, but, for me the problem always seems the same.Tech should allow us or the founders and torch holders to re-imagine the blueprint of the process, given that proptech allows solutions not available before. You see, tech is a tool, used to solve some pretty basic problems. Like how do we make Rentals more efficient? – that was a joke by the way as there are other 150 processes at work.My advice Calum, use the purchase of the assets of Upad, and before you do anything try to imagine what the rental sector will be like in 5 years time and build that model, do not automate or just digitally transform the current model, not easy but essential, get a room and fill it with users, developers and lots of clients, landlords and tenants and all the associated stakeholders and start asking questions, you will be surprised at the answers.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
