Singer Vielle was launched from an attic office in Queen Anne Street, within London’s West End, as a niche commercial property investment agency, providing specialist advice in relation to commercial real estate investments.
The first commercial investment property marked with an online presentation was a Porsche car showroom investment in Silverstone, home of British motor sport, on behalf of LaSalle Investment Management. Our revolutionary approach provided video and extensive photography of the car showroom investment viewable on our first website presentation.
Singer Vielle sold a retail property investment in Bath on behalf of an institutional client, following the financial crash. Having created a high online presence, the high depth of interest from UK and overseas investors was the inspiration to create the online legal execution platform, clicktopurchase® platform.
clicktopurchase® was developed and the first iteration launched proving a unique platform for the online legal execution of a property in the UK. The technology was developed to provide speed, certainty, accountability and transparency. In November 2009, a restaurant investment property in Faversham, England became the first real estate property to be purchased online, marketed by Singer Vielle and executed using clicktopurchase®.
The first clicktopurchase® online auction successfully sold three real estate investments in Colchester, Chelmsford and Blackpool, operated by the auctioneer who interacted in real-time with the bidders.
The first property sale concluded by an online clicktopurchase(r) Best Offers concerned an industrial investment property in Romford, England.
The first property sold on behalf an institutional fund manager, Standard Life Investments. A car showroom investment in Warrington was exchanged online using clicktopurchase®.
The first property sold using clicktopurchase® in Ireland. The residential property, located in Theatre Lane, Greystones, was marketed and executed online by Lisney.
In 2017 the clicktopurchase® platform commenced offering Blockchain technology as part of the sales process. The first property to be marketed by Singer Vielle and legally executed online, utilising the benefits of Blockchain technology, was a commercial investment property in Trowbridge, England.
The first online auction by Singer Vielle using Artificial intelligence to conduct the online auction concerned an industrial investment property in Calne, England.
The Singer Vielle Network franchise expansion continued, adding South Africa to network partners in Ireland and Scotland. This was followed by the launch of clicktopurchase® in South Africa.
