Openlist is an innovative, independent and inexpensive new mandate sharing platform by Qoob, created to assist real estate agents generate more leads & referrals, close more deals and earn more commission.
Participating estate agents simply submit the listings they wish to share, via an SSL Secure Online Form. The entire database is then updated in real time and made available exclusively to subscribing agents.
Openlist is not a conventional real estate agency - and does not compete against estate agents. However, we do obtain permission to market properties (residential & commercial, sales & rentals) directly from owners. Such mandate-free listings are also made available to participating estate agents as open mandates - and are subject to sales commission. The agent concluding the successful transaction typically earns 100% of the commission, since there is seldom a listing or referring agent involved.
With the traditional agent-to-agent mandate sharing, the listing agent controls the entire transaction and splits the commission with the selling agent - in accordance with their referral agreement. Openlist does not dictate terms or conditions in any way - and estate agents do not sacrifice, surrender or compromise their existing brand or identity. Openlist charges neither fees nor commissions, it simply provides an effective and efficient introductory platform for the interested agents to connect.
It just makes sense!

Qoob is pleased to announce the launch of Openlist - an Innovative, Independent & Inexpensive new Mandate Sharing Platform, whereby autonomous real estate agents, irrespective of identity (agency, branch or brand), are able to share their mandates (Sales & Rentals, Residential & Commercial) with other agents - in their area and across South Africa.
The concept is simple; each participating agent submits the listings they wish to share, via an SSL Secure Online Form. All the listings go into a database. Every day, the updated spreadsheet is made available exclusively to subscribing agents, in Excel format.
The data can then be sorted by columns - Location, Type, Price etc. The spreadsheet also contains links to Property Photographs - plus the listing agents contact details. Property addresses are not disclosed until the referral agreement has been formally accepted. Viewings must be scheduled through the Listing Agent - who shares commission, as negotiated, with the Selling Agent.
Agents may also request a specific property listing form in PDF format - or all listings can be viewed / searched Online.
- Network with other real estate practitioners - irrespective of identity; agency brand or branch
- Some agents have buyers/tenants, others have sellers/landlords - together they flourish
- Submit listings online - receive updates on new listings & open mandates in realtime
- Co-operation breeds success, especially in tough economic times & market slumps
- No risk, maximum reward - half a boiled egg is better than an empty egg shell
- The way it should be; Mutual Sharing - it just makes sense for everyone
