In making this announcement Mr Moresby acknowledged the significant part Mr Helm has played in the growth story of Realestate.co.nz, which Mr Helm was instrumental in developing, and thanked him for his important contribution since its establishment.
“Since establishment in 2005 the site has consistently grown both its traffic and market share to hold a very clear position as the most comprehensive website for real estate in New Zealand. It is used by over 1,000 real estate offices to showcase their listings with a total viewing audience of over 400,000 unique visitors each month from within New Zealand and overseas as well as over 100,000 a month on the mobile platform. Alistair’s role in making the business what it is today has been significant.”
Mr Helm is leaving as a consequence of management restructure. As both the business itself, and online marketplace have matured, the Board sees now as the appropriate time to review both operational structure and resourcing of the company as it charts its new future.
The Board and shareholders are excited by the next stage for the company. The restructure will ensure that both the selling and buying public, and real estate industry, continue to have access to the very best online marketing available.
