In Episode 3 of The Digital Brew, I went to see Tom Bloomfield of Bloomfield Grey and we chatted about how digital has changed the way that estate agents go about their business.

On the surface, it would appear that digital has completely changed the estate agency business with the portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla being the Google of property searches.

Surely all you have to do now to sell a house is get a photo on Rightmove? Who needs estate agents? Or… does a good estate agent offer skills that can never be replaced by a machine?

***Apologies for the tinny sound – the technical gremlins that are determined to prevent all going to plan on the sound front were back in force and the sound recorder failed midway through our chat, so all sound is from the camera mics***

A big thank you to Tom for his time, for sharing his thoughts and for a mighty fine cup of tea.
