Blaker Collins Residential Surveyors Case Study
Using Compare My Move on the first day of starting the business, Blaker Collins Residential Surveyors won a job for a £2,000,000 country house on their second-ever job.
We spoke with Sophie Blaker MRICS and the co-owner of Blaker Collins to hear about their success from our surveying leads.
Who are Blaker Collins Residential Surveyors?
Based in Haywards Heath and Dartford, Blaker Collins Residential Surveyors offer their expert surveying services across Dartford, Rochester and Tonbridge. Providing RICS Home Surveys Level 2 and 3, they go above and beyond to ensure they’re available to answer questions even weeks after the survey.
“We’ve used you since day 1 of launching our business and it’s all gone fantastic - we associate you as a massive contributor towards that.”Sophie Blaker, Co-owner of Blaker Collins
What challenges did they face?
Blaker Collins had problems with other lead generators before sticking with just Compare My Move and one other. “There were many surveyors receiving each lead and they displayed prices, which felt like a marketplace.”
Sophie told us how she prefers to discuss prices with the client as each property is individual and requires time to create a quote, which is one of Compare My Move’s unique benefits. “We use you and another lead generator - they’re not as good as you as they still display one price.”
They had to drop other lead providers who sent them “rubbish or repeat leads” and sent leads to other surveyors who weren’t necessarily in that area.
How did they find out about Compare My Move?
Before setting up their company in June 2021, Blaker Collins had done lots of research online for lead generators. Sophie told us that we stood out from the rest. “Compare My Move seemed to be very recognisable.” They had also been recommended to try our website by another surveyor who shared their positive experience with our leads.
Initially worrying about how they were going to build their work after just creating a business, they joined Compare My Move on day one. Their second ever job they landed was for a £2,000,000 property secured from one of our leads. “You’ve been a relief to have on hand.”
"We spend an average of £500 a month and see a return of £7,500"Sophie Blaker, Co-owner of Blaker Collins
What features do they like?
Blaker Collins enjoy using their Lead Manager and exploring the new features. The Lead Manager allows Blaker Collins to turn on and off their leads when their diary gets full instead of wasting leads.
They also appreciate our Postcode Data Tool and viewing low competition areas. “It’s interesting to see the competition and how many surveyors you have in different postcodes.”
What growth have they seen?
Sophie told us how we’ve been a “massive contributor” to their growth as a business. Enjoying a 25-30% conversion rate on their surveying leads, Blaker Collins sees an impressive monthly return of £7,500 after spending £500 on average.
