Raine & Horne boosts online property searches in national first

Raine & Horne
is the first Australian real estate franchise to place properties on major international property search engine Nestoria www.nestoria.com.au, creating a new way to search online.

Nestoria is an online property aggregator, collecting properties into a single location for easy viewing. Uniquely, it sources listings directly from property portals and franchise groups, such as Raine & Horne, and then drives property seekers directly back to those sites.  It has an intuitive interface, making it easy to use and cuts time searching for an ideal property.

Nestoria is well established in the UK, Spain, Italy and Germany with over 1.5 million users a month.

Raine & Horne CEO and QLD Chair of ITSG (IT Steering Group), Stephen Sharry, said the franchise’s partnership with Nestoria provided a unique advantage for property seekers.

“This is just another example of the Raine & Horne franchise leading the way in online property marketing,” Mr Sharry said.

Raine & Horne IT manager Joel Leslie said the partnership showed the company’s determination to harness available technology to boost its presence and made property searches faster and easier.

“This is also an excellent opportunity for Raine & Horne to get our listings throughout Australia and the world,” Mr Leslie said.

Nestoria co-founder Ed Freyfogle said Nestoria’s success was in its simplicity.

“We are a property search engine and that’s all we do and we do it well. Our only focus is on providing the best content and user experience in response to a consumer’s search. We look forward to learning from Australian property searchers.”

Nestoria is owned by Nestoria Australia Limited, comprising a small international team of entrepreneurs with strong backgrounds in internet search.
