‘We will break Rightmove’ promises LocalMove portal chief

first_imgLast week three estate agencies based in and around Sutton Coldfield near Birmingham launched a ‘local property portal’ platform that they believe has the best chance of taking on Rightmove and winning nationally.The Negotiator Zoomed in to quiz one of the co-founders, Nigel Deekes of Acres.Aren’t portals like LocalMove just knee-jerk reactions to Rightmove’s fee hikes?Portal fees are very annoying, but I think most agents are more upset by the attitude that portals take towards agents and the outright monopoly that in particular Rightmove have.If there was greater competition and a more even balance of power in the portal market, then it wouldn’t be so bad.Agents feel like their hands are tied – it’s difficult to walk away from the big portals because if you do, you’re going to get hammered by your local competitors.Why now?Me and another agent called Paul Carr first came up with the idea nearly 15 years ago because even then we realised that Rightmove had too much power.But the time wasn’t right, and agents didn’t have the appetite to get involved. Rightmove were not seen as a big enough threat yet.Since then, we’ve been waiting for the ideal time to launch LocalMove and a year ago Paul Carr, Greene & Company and [his company] Acres all agreed that the time HAD come, so we’ve working since then to get it ready.Why ‘LocalMove’?Most people move within four or five miles of their existing homes so a national portal in reality isn’t really needed and therefore we’ve decided to focus on the ‘local’. Our strapline is going to be ‘Make the right move with LocalMove’.We think Zoopla and OnTheMarket have not reached their potential and significantly weakening Rightmove and that Boomin won’t either.Because they have all tried or are trying to be another big portal. You are not going to persuade agents to leave Rightmove on a national basis – everyone else is waiting for their local competitors to leave first.Why will your idea work?If I rang up an agent and said I’m from LocalMove then the receptionist would take my message, and no one would call me back.If I called up one of my local competitors and said it’s Nigel from Acres, they’d take my call because they know me – and that’s how the LocalMove network will grow; by agents recommending it to each other.Once agents begin to trust each other, even if you don’t like each other, then it is possible to for the main agents in a town or area to quit Rightmove safely, although some we’ve talked to have suggested a legally-binding agreement to cement it.Sutton Coldfield is one thing, what about the rest of the UK?In our local area, we are definitely leaving and between the three of us we will take 70%-80% of local listings with us to LocalMove and off Rightmove.It will only be a matter of time before house hunters in the area notice Rightmove has just 20-30% of the inventory and begin using LocalMove, which we will promote via our marketing and branches, instead. People will always go where the properties are.Once agents see it working in areas near them, then the idea will spread and, town by town and area by area, we will win the battle. I truly believe this will work.Acres Nigel Deekes LocalMove paul carr Greene & Co Rightmove January 28, 2021Nigel Lewis2 commentsWhere Is The Monii Money, WITMM WITMM 28th January 2021 at 10:34 amPortals occupy an unusual place in the property ecosystem. The people who pay for them (the agents) are not the users (buyers and sellers).The launch of a new portal, be it local, national or indeed global requires both the agents to list (although easy enough to scrape RM, Zoopla, OTM) and then use by the buying and selling public.Business such as Rightmove has become the default for most users. It is a byword for property. My feel is that most people could not name all their local estate agents but would know to look at Rightmove et al. It’s on a par with not knowing the name of the local car showroom so then using Autotrade. Most online buying starts or finishes with Amazon or eBay.The fundamental challenge is that these organisations are almost ingrained into the public pyche. “Yes”, local agents may know Nigel From Acres, but in 3 years time, will the buyers and sellers be choosing LocalMove over RightMove?Log in to ReplyMurray Lee, Dreamview Estates Dreamview Estates 28th January 2021 at 8:49 amGood luck NigelLove the initiativeLets all support Nigel to break the hold#saynotorightmoveLog in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

COMMENT: Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest?

first_imgUnlike their predecessor Henry II, the political elite at Westminster were no doubt positively delighted by the intervention of the Archbishop of Canterbury last week. No sooner than did the words ‘sharia law’ escape Rowan Williams’s lips, than the knights of the 24-hour media, like their 12th century counterparts, charge towards the meddlesome priest with their swords drawn. With the news cycle moving away from the turmoil in the financial markets and the Oscar Wilde-inspired and tax payer-funded sartorial habits of an MP’s son, Labour and Conservative parties alike must have heaved a sigh of relief. As pundits and journalists from across the whole political spectrum gathered to lynch the man in the mitre (or as the Sun helpfully put it, to ‘bash the bishop’), the politicians could finally catch their breaths before the next round of – inevitably – bad news. Obviously, in strict accordance with the Law of the Media Circus, the amount of vitriol and hysteria which is generated by said circus is inversely proportionate to the actual cause for alarm or concern. Since I am not a lawyer or an expert on Islamic jurisprudence, I cannot offer any particularly helpful insight into overall merit of Dr. Williams’s proposals. I am, however, literate and was able to actually read the speech which ignited this controversy. Unfortunately, this presumption of literacy was not borne out in the case of most of the self-proclaimed defenders of the rule of law and Western civilisation. In recent days, the Archbishop has extended an offer of pax, apologising for any ‘unclarity’ in his speech which might have led some to misunderstand his meaning. But really, unless by ‘misunderstand’ he meant ‘wilfully ignore large chunks of speech which directly and thoughtfully addressed the concerns rabidly paraded in the press’, I am not sure why even this muted apology was justified. Perhaps journalists these days are too busy defending Enlightenment values or pondering Britney’s downward spiral to read primary sources when these exceed their 150-word attention span limit. I am genuinely puzzled by the charge that Williams was naively unaware of the disadvantaged status of women, the problem of ‘forced marriage’, and the extreme incompatibility of some provisions of sharia with human rights, when these concerns were all dealt with at length and with evident application and research. So for the Johann Haris, Yasmin Alibhai-Browns and the rest of the muscular liberals and/or secularist paranoiacs, the solution to their nightmares of the coming oppressive theocracy is simply to learn to read. I recommend particularly the sentence (only 44 words!) where Williams insists that ‘If any kind of plural jurisdiction is recognised, it would presumably have to be under the rubric that no “supplementary” jurisdiction could have the power to deny access to the rights granted to other citizens or to punish its members for claiming those rights.’ The remedy for some of the less savoury platoons in the anti-Williams army will unfortunately have to be more radical. The drumbeat they march to is leading the faithful in a grand crusade to save Western Civilisation from what they see as the confessional and demographic threat of Islam. Of course, by no means all of Williams’s critics fall into this category; indeed, thankfully few do. But a distressingly vocal band of the usual suspects has used the controversy surrounding the Archbishop as a screen to advance their, much more sinister, agenda. Over at the Daily Telegraph for example, Damian Thompson graciously admits that Williams rejects unequivocally such abominations as the stoning of adulterous women. But Thompson points out that Williams’s fault was to find some actually accommodating things to say about sharia (shock! horror!), rather than to take Thompson’s line of comparing Islamic law to Nazism (carefully inserted by referring to the Archbishop’s speech as ‘Vichyite waffle’). Make no mistake about this: Thompson’s hatred of sharia does not stem from any special love for human rights. His astoundingly reactionary blog features frequent calls for aggressive Catholic proselytising, an end to stem-cell research and the rolling back of equal rights for women and homosexuals. So his venomous opposition to any accommodation of the Muslim community beyond reluctant toleration really comes down, not to a robust defence of liberal democracy, but to Islamophobia. Don’t take my word for it when you can read Thompson’s own mewling for yourself. Apparently when he yearns for the conversion of Jews to Catholicism, he is merely recognising the ‘universal salvific nature’ of his faith, whereas when a small mosque in East Oxford wants to broadcast the call to prayer once a week, this will ‘strengthen the sense of territorial domination that is central to modern Islamic identity’. All attempts to reach reasonable accommodation with Muslims is labelled ‘dhimmitude’, a term which refers in Islamic jurisprudence to the protected but subordinate status of non-Muslims in an Islamic state, and in Thompson’s writing to the deplorable capitulationism of woolly-minded multi-cultis to the coming Islamic domination. It is this same irrational fear – the definition, after all, of ‘phobia’ – which has inspired the recent crusade, headed by Oxford historian of science, Dr. Allan Chapman, to prevent the East Oxford mosque from broadcasting the adhan. The bow tie and deerstalker hat-wearing Chapman, who seems to have picked up both his clothes and his views from the 1890s, thinks the mosque’s request represents not an appeal to the freedom of religious expression, but the ‘right to torment the community’, afflicting him with the ‘horrible sound’ of the call to prayer and offending his no doubt legendary ‘sense of neighbourliness’. Like Thompson and his fellow-traveller Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, Chapman thinks broadcasting a short prayer in classical Arabic constitutes an attempt to ‘dominate’ and ‘Islamify’ the community. Chapman has been joined by the rector of St Aldate’s church, Revd Charlie Cleverly – clearly one of God’s mysterious ways is to give people ironic surnames – who claims the professions of faith contained in the adhan make it an attempt to impose that faith on the community. I hate to break it to Revd Cleverly, but (presumably) unlike him, most Oxford residents are not fluent in classical Arabic. And when it comes to imposing one’s faith on others, frankly St Aldate’s church is hardly the most innocent of the charge. So as the latest wave of bishop-bashing breaks, spare a thought for Rowan Williams and his increasingly embattled attempt to forge mature and thoughtful debate on a difficult subject. But spare a thought also for the hoary old Islamophobes who have come out of hiding. They seem to be having trouble finding their way to the 21st century. Please, when you see them, give them a hand.

Adrian Staehli named Loeb Professor of Classical Archaeology

first_imgArchaeologist Adrian Staehli, whose work has challenged conventional interpretations of nudity and the human body in ancient Greek and Roman art, has been named James Loeb Professor of Classical Archaeology at Harvard University, effective next Jan. 1.Staehli is currently lecturer and associate professor in the Archäologisches Institut at Universität Zürich, where he has been a member of the faculty since 2002. He joins Harvard’s Department of the Classics.“Professor Staehli is an engaged and accessible teacher with an alert and creative mind,” said Ingrid Monson, interim dean of arts and humanities in Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. “He has a solid grounding across the entire spectrum of Greek and Roman visual culture, and his work is at the cutting edge of art historical research into these antiquities. His work is provocative, promising to ignite scholarly debate and reinvent notions about the role of the ‘heroic nude’ in ancient art.”Staehli’s research focuses on sculpture and painting from the archaic Greek to the Roman imperial period, with particular attention to depictions of the human body. His close examination of ancient art’s reception in later historical periods has revealed much about the process by which subsequent analysts reach consensus on the value and meaning of antiquities. His scholarly publications range from technical differentiations of authentic and fake sculpture to treatments of antiquity in modern cinema.Staehli holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in classical archaeology, both from Freie Universität Berlin. Before becoming lecturer and associate professor at Universität Zurich in 2002, he served as a research assistant and lecturer there and at Universität Basel.Staehli has held visiting appointments at the Getty Villa in Malibu, Calif.; the Centre Gernet-Glotz at the Institut National de l’Histoire de l’Art in Paris; the Istituto Archeologico Germanico in Rome; the Centre Louis-Gernet at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris; the Institut für Theaterwissenschaften at Freie Universität Berlin; and the Warburg Institute and the Institute of Classical Studies in London.last_img read more

Lessons of the Week! Jonathan Groff, Idina Menzel & More

first_imgIt’s Friday, and you know what that means—it’s time to get wasted! Oh, not until 5:00? Then it’s time for the Lessons of the Week! A lot of crazy stuff has happened in the last seven days, so for your reading convenience, we compiled a list of the most important things we’ve learned this week. Ready? Let’s do this!Jonathan Groff Had Beach Body PanicWe can’t imagine Jonathan Groff looking anything but perfect in a skimpy swimsuit, but he swears he freaked out and started a juice cleanse when he saw his costume for the upcoming film The Normal Heart. Um, is it May 25 yet? Is it? What about now?Relax, Audra & Will Are Still MarriedSorry to freak you out, Broadway fans, but do you really only read the first three words of a headline before jumping to conclusions? They’re getting divorced in The First Wives Club. A reading. Look, here’s proof that they’re still together. Calm down.Ramin Karimloo Has a Secret IdentityThe Iranian Jumping Bean—Les Miz star Ramin Karimloo—has another nickname we weren’t aware of: “Tony,” the name he gives to Starbucks baristas. Ramin, we get it. When your signature drink is a skinny vanilla latte, you have to order it undercover.The Bullets Dudes Have Pretty EyesBullets Over Broadway bros Zach Braff and Nick Cordero admit they often get lost in each other’s gorgeous eyes during the show and can’t remember their lines. Glad to know we’re not the only ones. Seriously though, have you seen them? Wait, what were we talking about?NBC’s Got Trouble (Trouble, Trouble)Friends, either you are closing your eyes to a situation you do not wish to acknowledge, or you are not aware of the caliber of awesomeness indicated by the presence of The Music Man on your television set. Seth MacFarlane, please clear your calendar for the next two years.News Flash: Idina Menzel Isn’t BeyonceWe know, it’s confusing. They both have great nicknames, they can both dazzle a crowd and they’ve both had an elevator brawl. (Oh wait, not that last one.) But Idina Menzel insists that the main reason she’s different than B is that she can’t wear crazy tall shoes. Oh please, Idina, we’ve seen you rock these. Give yourself some credit.Jersey Is Just a State of MindWe knew the Four Seasons could croon some amazing four-part harmonies, but we had no idea they could also defy the space-time continuum. After teleporting on two Jersey Boys movie posters, we discovered they could also travel to Africa, Scandinavia and Madison County. Yeah, we’re weirdos, we know.The Phantom Love Triangle Got WeirdSpeaking of weird, Sierra Boggess thinks her new Phantom co-star Norm Lewis is seriously hot, even though he previously played her father in The Little Mermaid. Meanwhile, Andrew Lloyd Webber admitted he’d propose to Boggess if he were younger. Save the creepy crushes for the show, guys.Even B’way Stars Have Nutty NeighborsWe love hearing the crazy stories of Milton the computer addict who crashed Mario Cantone’s 40th birthday party, the old lady who threw water on Leslie Uggams, Michael C. Hall’s brawling neighbors and the racist hoarder who lived next door to Tracy Letts. Does this sound like a terrific musical waiting to happen or what? Sondheim, ya busy?Watch Out For the Joshua Henry EffectHave you noticed a trend on Broadway this season? Namely, gorgeous, muscley dudes ripping their shirts off left and right? Blame it on Violet star Joshua Henry, who claims his “chustle” (that’s a combo between chunk and muscle) is the reason Broadway guys are getting bigger. Josh, you’re a saint.
