The new chief executive of Purplebricks believes hybrid agents could win ’20-30% market share’ in the UK.
Vic Darvey, who replaced Michael Bruce as the agency’s chief executive in May, says the hybrid sector remains ‘a very nascent opportunity’.
“People forget that the sector is only around five years old,” he says in an interview with Estate Agent Today, following the publishing of the agency’s full-year figures for the year ending April 30 2019 yesterday.
“At Purplebricks, we are now only talking to some consumers for the first time as they look to move home.”
