Intending to be the flag bearer for change across the European estate agent and property market, Billionaire founder of Easy-Jet, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, has lead online real estate startup easyProperty quickly to overfunding on Crowdcube, raising over £1.027M for the 1.54% equity offered with over 227 investors to date. Making successful crowdfunding look easy, Sir Stelios has partnered on the venture with experienced real estate manager Robert Ellice who will be acting as CEO of EasyProperty. Their raise on Crowdcube is part of a larger £7.5m round, all at the same valuation. Other investors in this round are being managed by Chrystal Capital who we understand have so far secured more £6M.
EasyProperty describes their business as:
“[having] taken the traditional high street estate agent, stripped it down, and built it back up. Now we have something that performs better. Much better. By cutting away the dead-weight – the expensive high street shops, the tacky minis, and the rest of the unnecessary baggage – we’ve delivered a new generation of estate agent. One which isn’t constrained by things like locality, red tape or opening hours.”
easyProperty has also announced a launch event in central London on 17 September; the event plans to feature speeches from Sir Stelios (easyJet founder and easyGroup), Victoria Whitlock (The Evening Standard’s Accidental Landlord) and Robert Ellice (property entrepreneur and easyProperty founder).
