An ASX announcement has revealed a new agreement between RE/MAX Australia and Openn Negotiation.
According to the statement, the new partnership between the real estate network and the proptech company will “support the adoption of Openn as a sales method, enabling further growth of the platform through group agent training, along with a series of technical integrations with RE/MAX Australia’s own digital assets”.
RE/MAX finance director Chris Chapman has praised Openn Negotiation’s ability to help real estate agents meet the expectations of today’s buyers and sellers.
He said: “Openn takes proven sales methods and adds a transparent digital medium for making and receiving offers, and for managing competing bids. Agents using Openn can build more trust with buyers and sellers alike.”
From his perspective, the platform also solves “a fundamental flaw of limited transparency in traditional real estate sales methods”.
Peter Gibbons, Openn Negotiation’s managing director, said that as the platform continues to grow and scale up, “partnerships with leading networks such as RE/MAX will allow us to further showcase the benefits Openn has to offer, as well as the type of results that can be gained for the seller, the buyer and the agent”.
He considers network agreements as “a key element of our growth strategy and supports our goal to provide agents with an exceptional enabling tool that can be utilised to streamline and improve the selling process”.
It has been reported that property data integration between both businesses, whereby RE/MAX agents will be able to seamlessly run private treaty, registration of interest and online auctions through the Openn Negotiation platform, is well underway.
