Introduction to Samantha Westlake from BestAgent
My name is Samantha Westlake. I am the newly appointed in-house PR for BestAgent Property, a national property search site (currently in beta) that allows movers to book viewings online for any available UK property.
I would like to introduce myself and BestAgent to all property, tech and financial journalists and ensure you are the right contact.
BestAgent Property is for ordinary people who need to move home. (https://bestagent.property/)
BestAgent Property lists 100% of publicly available homes (excluding land and garages) from all agents in the UK. We are the only site that offers an online booking facility for viewings of any property directly with the listing agent.
If you have any questions or would be interested in covering the story of our launch please do let me know.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to talking to you in due course.

Notes to Editors
Founded in 2017, the goal of BestAgent is to bring the improvement to the home moving process that the internet brought to everything else. BestAgent is here to make it easier to find your home.
More than 100,000 people in the UK per day make enquiries about homes on property sites. BestAgent is here to make it easier for movers to find a new home and book a viewing online with the agent.
BestAgent Property is a privately owned tech company run from Lisbon, Portugal (CRLBC Data Solutions Unipessoal LDA) and it’s wholly-owned subsidiary in Exeter (BestAgent Ltd). The objective is to deliver the meaningful, permanent improvement in the home moving process that has been lacking since the advent of the internet. We hope to do this by promoting easier connection between movers and the estate and lettings agents needed to guide them through the difficult process of finding and moving to a new home.
BestAgent is built on 100% Serverless architecture technology from Amazon Web Services, using a tech stack that includes: Lambda Microservices, Node.js, Vue,js, Auth0, Xero, Stripe, Twilio, Companies House API. It has been in development since 2017, and has been operating behind the scenes in the real world with agents since December 2018. The project has cost around £3.5 million to build to date.
Housing Market Data:
In the future we will be able to provide the most up to date statistics on property asking prices, including daily changes in average prices, nationally and regionally, in both sales and lettings.
