10 property "experts" predict the future...

A magazine called "Luv the city" has published an interesting article this month.  It has asked 10 property experts their views on the future of property marketing. You can read the full article here.

The "experts" are:
  • Sarah Beeny of private sale website Tepilo
  • Rosalind Renshaw, editor of Estate Agent Today
  • Duncan Dunlop of social media website Oodle
  • Daniel Latto of The Think Tank Group
  • Angus Edy of Movello
  • Darren Earney, a Search Engine Optimisation expert
  • Carolyn Hughes who blogs about Manchester
  • Giles Ings, an architect
  • Martin Smityh of Propertyadd.com
  • Phil Shankland of inspiral.biz
It's a great shame that only one of the ten is actually a practicing estate agent. A balance of five existing agents, a couple of portal owners and three support service suppliers would have given the article much more value.  What are Savills & Knight Frank thinking?  How about some of the huge chains and what do Primelocation and Rightmove have to say?

Still, there's plenty to chew on and it's certainly worth a read.

I'd really like to invite Martin Smith, Daniel Latto and Sarah Beeny round to dinner and eavesdrop on the conversation....particularly when the St Emilion & Remy Martin took effect and they said what they really think the future holds!

Hi Graham,

Dinner sounds good - let me know if you book the others in!

Wasn't sure I liked the inverted commas around "experts" before seeing that invite! :o)
