Emoov vs YOPA: online estate agent head-to-head comparison

With so many online estate agents on the market it can be difficult to know which is right for you. Our online estate agent comparison tool makes it easy to discover which ones fit your needs, but what about the finer detail? Our head-to-head compares two individual online agents so you can get to grips with the details of their services.

Here we’re comparing Emoov and YOPA. While eMoov was launched in 2010 it can trace its roots back to 1957, when Albert F Quirk opened his first independent estate agency in London. Fast forward 60 years and his grandson, Russell Quirk, is at the helm of the family’s new enterprise, which takes a contemporary and innovative approach to property sales.

YOPA, meanwhile, has made a big impression since its launch in 2015, securing huge amounts of funding from major investment names and expanding rapidly. With its Village People-inspired TV spot it’s also got one of the most recognisable advertisements on the small screen – unsurprising given it was produced by the same people who made Gary Lineker’s famous crisp adverts.
