Property Connect appoints Century21 owner as chairman, strikes online platform deal

ASX-listed prop-tech company Property Connect has appointed Century21 Australiasia owner Charles Tarbey as chairman with the latter also agreeing to a trial of Property Connect's LiveOffer platform.

Using LiveOffer, property managers or landlords can view incoming bids for their properties in real-time while also giving feedback to renters on how their offer ranks against other bidders.

The platform, which was launched in Australia last week, has tasted success in the US with property managers Berger and EIMC onboarding their apartments recently. 

On Tarbey’s appointment as chairman, Property Connect chief executive Tim Manson said it was a "further validation" of the company's technology.

"Charles’ vast experience and unique insights into real estate markets will help Property Connect develop and refine its offering, technology and strategy," said Manson. 

Tarbey, who is also Century 21 chairman, has been in the real estate industry for 45 years. He purchased Wentworth Holdings, Australia's largest property management group, in 2011 and also owns the master franchises of Century 21 Australia, Century 21 New Zealand and Century 21 Papua New Guinea.

Property Connect and Century 21 are finalising terms for a trial of the technology at select Century21 offices in Victoria and Western Australia, starting in April.

Michael Langoulant, who took over as non-executive chairman in November 2016, will remain on the board as a non-executive director.
