Tired of ringing around trying to find tradespeople to fix leaky roofs or broken boilers, landlord Danny Neibert has launched his own online service offering a new way to find and instruct a range of different handymen.
Rezigo, which is due to launch tomorrow, offers property managers including landlords an letting agents and easy way to find local conveyancers, electricians, locksmiths, plumbers, cleaners, removals and storage services, waste clearance and maintenance providers.
Neiberg (main picture), who has been a residential landlord for 20-years, claims that Rezigo is a product of his and co-founder Simone Neiberg’s experience of landlording ‘pinch points’ which they have used to build a ‘sophisticated portal that lets users compare trade quotes, book jobs, pay suppliers, and leave ratings and reviews all in one place’.
They claim that hundreds of suppliers have already been signed up to use the service, which is about to go live.
The Neibergs say they searched unsuccessfully for technology that would help them source and manage all aspects of their property projects and, when they couldn’t find it, built their own tech.
It claims to be unique because landlords and letting agents can book appointments with a few clicks, and because it eliminates supplier ‘phone arounds’.
“We built a bespoke platform for my existing property business, which has evolved over the years in terms of functionality and complexity,” says Danny Neiberg.
“And so, equipped with a solid understanding of the stresses associated with the home services sector, we set out to create the ultimate prop-tech solution.”
“I’ve been absolutely floored by the reaction so far – from both suppliers and would-be customers.”
