IAM Sold Announces Major Southern Expansion with New Corporate Agent

Posted on 29th April 2016 by Jordan Holmes

Award winning auction provider IAM Sold has today announced a major expansion into the south, including London and the south east.

The expansion follows a record breaking year in 2015 and dovetails perfectly with the roll out within Your Move and Reeds Rains estate agencies nationally which follows a successful trial in specific regions. Jamie Cooke, sales director at IAM Sold said: “We are delighted with the results from the trial with Your Move & Reeds Rains and the subsequent expansion of our service with them, which has facilitated the need to set up a dedicated Corporate Department. This has been done to ensure that the service we offer to all of our partner agents remains the high standard we are known for.”

Oliver Blake, managing director of Your Move and Reeds Rains commented: “Based on the success of trials within Your Move and Reeds Rains, and the comprehensive support that IAM Sold has offered to us during this time, we very much look forward to working with them in the future.”

The company has also recruited a number of Business Development Managers to cover the South East & London, and South Wales & South West. They are now looking to set up a southern office to service the new areas which are already growing. Ben Ridgway, business and innovation director at IAM Sold said: “The expansion is fantastic news for the company and our partner agents, and represents a significant investment on our part. We see innovation and the development of new, industry leading auction technology as a key advantage to our offering. This is demonstrated by the in-house IT Development team doubling in size since the beginning of 2016.”

Following a fantastic end to 2015, winning the prestigious Sunday Times Estate Agency of the Year Award for Best Supplier and placing 23rd in the Sunday Times Virgin Fasttrack 100, the company has further significant growth plans for 2016 including expansion of regional public auctions and some innovative new products, as well as acquisitions of existing businesses. Ben Ridgway said: “The organic growth of the company has put us in a very strong position and means we are now also looking at acquiring companies that will help us build on the success of the IAM Sold principles.”

Responding to your reply on my initial review. The Rental charge wasn't on the starter pack because we looked so your claim is incorrect. The reason for the delay was because the seller solicitor blatantly refused to pay the rental charge and we decided to pay it because of the time wasted, and our solicitor needed to notify our lender about this rental charge development because no one from our side knew about this until the last minute, if this rental charge was stated from the beginning the lender would have been notified earlier and it would have been sorted out earlier. The idea of putting down a non refundable deposit only gives room for yourselves , the buyer and their solicitors to treat the seller how ever they like because they have nothing to lose. When this issue started we called Iam sold and no one could tell us anything, kept putting us on hold and saying there is nothing they can do then wait. So what exactly did you do again? Its not like we had a choice to buy the house without paying the fee, so yes we paid it but that doesn't mean we enjoyed paying it because it was fair. After the fee was paid all the initial interest and treatment stopped and no one cared to resolved the issue or give us a straight answer. Anyway you asked for a review, this is how we felt. Like i said never felt this frustrated in any other purchase i have made.
Fee was just too high and i didn't feel like they did anything to warrant the fee, said house would complete soon but it completed over 6 weeks after we were told it would complete. Seller said no other fees associated with the house and all of a sudden after everything was done boom! they revealed the house had a rent charge attached to it. The most frustrating purchase i have done. Never using this auction again.
Really happy with the sale of our property. Great help, would use again!!
