Propertynews.com still No1

Belfast Telegraph - Homefinder - - News -

IT is the go-to web­site for buy­ing and sell­ing prop­erty in North­ern Ire­land and now the man who helped pi­o­neer propertynews. com is back at the helm with some ex­cit­ing new plans for its fu­ture de­vel­op­ment.

Conor Mac­car­rick (right) has taken up the post of di­rec­tor of strat­egy for propertynews. com and is ex­cited to be back on fa­mil­iar ground lead­ing the web­site as it an­nounces plans for a ma­jor re­vamp this year.

Conor is one of the orig­i­nal in­no­va­tive team who first de­vel­oped the idea of an on­line prop­erty por­tal with the launch of propertynews.com in 2001.

He re­mained chief ex­ec­u­tive for three years af­ter the site was bought over by In­de­pen­dent News and Me­dia in 2006, af­ter which he left to set up his own man­age­ment con­sul­tancy.

Six years later, he is de­lighted to be back and is im­pressed the site re­mains North­ern Ire­land’s most used prop­erty web­site. He says: “I am very ex­cited about the plans by IN&M PLC to make sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment in the busi­ness through­out this year which will cul­mi­nate in the launch of a to­tally re­designed web­site in the sum­mer of 2016.

“This will in­clude many new fea­tures across all me­dia as well as ad­di­tional ser­vices for es­tate agents. Our ‘Edge’ soft­ware, the award win­ning back of­fice sys­tem for es­tate agents is the mar­ket leader and gets prop­erty to the web­site in real time, op­ti­mis­ing our ser­vice to our cus­tomers.”

The Holy­wood man added: “Since it was first launched, propertynews.com has re­mained the lead­ing web­site for the prop­erty mar­ket in North­ern Ire­land and the first port of call for buy­ers as well as sellers.”
