The age of opportunity: Who will win & lose in estate agency's new era?
Technology has transformed the industry in many ways, but good old-fashioned agency has been thrown out with the bath water, writes buying agent Sophia Wade.
Sophie Wade is Managing Director of property search agency Inspired Spaces. In 1998 Sophia started work at Sullivan Thomas, Fulham, (now Carter Jonas), before moving to Hamptons International, at their prestigious High Street Kensington office. She remained with Hamptons until she decided to set up her search agency in 2003 (formerly Sophia Wade Property Services). In 2019, Sophia turned her hand to commercial lettings, building another successful business. However, her real passion still laid with residential property. In 2021, she sold out to her former business partner to focus solely on her real passion buying incredible property on behalf of clients.
