Zoopla confirmed on Monday that it has acquired Yourkeys, a property software company.
The acquisition will see 25 experts from Yourkeys, including CEO Riccardo Iannucci-Dawson, join Zoopla and see Yourkeys join Zoopla’s suite of software products including its next generation Alto product.
Yourkeys has been a disruptive proptech company and was one of the first to take the entire property sales process online.
The company’s aim is to “provide buyer/seller onboarding and sales progression tools for housebuilders to help them sell new homes in an efficient way”.
Commenting on the acquisition Zoopla CEO Charlie Bryant said: “When we recently announced our vision we made a commitment to providing our customers with the very best software and services. With the acquisition of Yourkeys we’ve absolutely done that. Their technology and the service they offer are truly best in class, providing a smoother, better and more comprehensive experience for housebuilders.”
“Alongside the systems and software, more importantly we’ve acquired a true team of superstars, led by CEO and founder Riccardo Iannucci-Dawson. We are thrilled that such a talented, customer-centric team has chosen to join the team here at Zoopla and I’m confident that they will help drive everyone at Zoopla to even greater heights in the years to come.”
Yourkeys CEO Riccardo Iannucci-Dawson addled: “This is an incredibly exciting next step for the entire Yourkeys team who are as passionate as I am about delivering tech transformation within the property industry. We’ve now found a home inside the most innovative property marketplace in the country and, together, we can fulfil our ambitions to transform the way properties are bought and sold. We could not be happier to join the Zoopla family and are looking forward to sharing the benefits of this alliance with our customers and partners.”
Yourkeys launched in 2018, has 25 housebuilder and estate agent clients including Bewley, Davidsons, JLL, London Square and Hill.
