Since their launch in Greater Manchester at the end of last year, estate agency YOPA has proved a huge hit.

The model has proved so popular, YOPA have now launched nationally with a fresh new television and radio advertising campaign, broadcasting regularly.

YOPA’s new Local Property Manager for the Andover area is Mark Townend.

Mark began his career in Estate Agency over 20 years ago, as a trainee negotiator in an Andover estate agency. Mark was soon promoted to Branch Manager and has since continued to gain experience within the industry, managing branches throughout the region.

Mark said: “Whilst the way that people buy and sell houses has not changed, the way that people interact with the marketing of properties has changed dramatically over the course of the last few years. The vast majority of people will begin their search online.”

“I wanted to be with YOPA because they are at the cutting edge of providing the customer with a real choice when it comes to marketing their property.”

The firm says its combination of Local Property Managers (LPMs) and cutting-edge industry technology is proving a hit with vendors.

YOPA – – is regularly saving its customers an average of £5,348 on estate agent fees by charging vendors a flat fee of just £780 inclusive of VAT.

YOPA’s Joint Managing Director Daniel Attia said: “We conducted a six-week regional launch in the Granada area before Christmas and the consumer response has been overwhelmingly positive.”

“Vendors who have used YOPA tell us they like the combination of experienced Local Property Managers who know their territories and the powerful technology that supports their activity.”

“There are plenty of high street agents and online agents but YOPA is genuinely revolutionising the way people buy and sell homes by giving consumers a complete service fit for the 21st century.”

“In addition to a growing number of instructions in the North West, we have also been taking enquiries from other regions who have heard about the service we can offer.”

“We had no hesitation in deciding to move quickly from the pilots to a full national roll-out this month.“
