South London and Kent agent brand The Acorn Group has made a return to Zoopla, following recent news that the property portal has grown its customer number 2% year on year. 

According to Zoopla, Acorn’s return follows the portal’s continued drive to improve the number and quality of leads it provides to agents, to add value and return on investment.

The growth in Zoopla’s customer partnerships followed the company’s decision to offer free portal usage in light of the lockdown.

Zoopla named one of London’s top 10 tech employers 

Andy Marshall, chief commercial officer at Zoopla, said: “The Acorn Group is a figurehead and thought-leader for the industry that is recognised widely for its acumen and incisive approach to business.

“With our laser focused, bespoke approach to customer success, we look forward to supporting Acorn as it sets new benchmarks in growth and realises its exacting ambitions.

“We are delighted that Acorn has chosen to partner with us, and we look forward to cementing our relationship for the long term.”

Robert Sargent, CEO at Acorn Group, said: “The key behind the decision to return to Zoopla revolved around a desire to build a genuine working partnership with the businesses portal suppliers and Zoopla appear to be demonstrating a clear understanding of the challenges facing the UK estate agency industry.”
