Hybrid estate agency goes live

A family-owned start-up is looking to break into the North East property market with the launch of a new online estate agency.

distrikt, set up by estate agent Max Christian-Chance with the support of his mother and sister, looks to serve the whole of the North East from its recently launched website.

The entrepreneur has big plans for the company which he hopes will turn over a six-figure sum and begin recruiting by the end of 2016.

He said: “distrikt has been set up to bridge the gap between the online and traditional estate agent and we're proud to launch this service in an area we know extremely well, Tyne & Wear.

“We're offering a super simple online service that aims to offer low flexible fees, high levels of service and an ever-developing knowledge of the local property market.

“Estate agency as we know it is rapidly changing, and we want to make the people of Tyne & Wear enjoy an experience that is at their fingertips and is both reliable and affordable.

“We’ve shunned the high street office to enable a low-cost business model with no sacrifice in service or features and will pass those savings and benefits on to the customer.”

To mark the launch of the new service, distrikt is offering people the chance to sell their home for just £695 inc VAT.

The first 10 people to apply will benefit from the offer and if distrikt doesn't sell the property, customers won't be charged a penny.
