Rugby World Cup Star Appointed as Brand Ambassador
New regionally focused property portal wearethemarket.co.uk has appointed Rugby World Cup winner Jason Robinson as a brand ambassador.
Jason Robinson OBE reached the summit of Rugby League as well as Rugby Union, representing England in three world cup finals – including the 2003 Rugby Union World Cup in Sydney where he scoring England’s only try to power the team to victory.
Currently working with the We Are The Market team on a range of consumer and professional initiatives as the property search portal gears up to formally launch in February, he says: “We Are The Market is leading the way in providing a more localised property search, somewhere that people can find the best property stock in their area first and gain a valuable insight into the local area. The team is building a portal that is all about the property, locality and the independent agents themselves – surely a winning combination? Property has been a passion of mine for years and I have a lot of respect for what the team is working so hard to accomplish.
“When I first talked to the founders, I felt an affinity with what they were aiming to do. Now is the right time to focus on the needs of each local area, especially given the effect of COVID-19 on our communities, and deliver what buyers and renters need during their property journeys. I’m proud to be part of the team who has decided to tackle the status quo of property searching.”
The portal is made up of a group of independent agents in the Midlands and has a regional focus that we are sure will eventually become national, featuring great local information in an easy-to-digest format for property searchers. It has gained significant momentum within the community of independent agents since news of its launch broke earlier this month.
Mike Cleary, co-founder of We Are The Market, adds: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Jason, a natural born winner, to our team as a brand ambassador. His passion for the property market, along with his sporting and community-inspired background make him a great addition to the team. His knowledge of what it takes to prevail in the most competitive of environments will be a constant inspiration for us along this journey.”
