The property management platform Apropos, scheduled to launch early next year, says it’s signed up 25 business partners ahead of schedule.
The platform is to be operated by long-established property management firm DJ Alexander Ltd; with its partners, it now covers 70 per cent of Greater London along with 45 per cent of the rest of the UK including Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Nottingham, Newcastle, Coventry and many other cities and towns.
The firm currently employs 170 staff in its Edinburgh offices with an additional 30 employed directly in developing the platform.
The people behind Apropos say it will revolutionise the lettings industry “by establishing new standards of transparency, fairness, and convenience for the benefit of both landlords and tenants.”
“We are delighted to have attracted so many top-quality business partners across the UK who have been attracted to our service, our means of delivery and our approach to property management. We’re not charging a joining or monthly fee which highlights our commitment to our partners, and we are supporting them as they develop and grow their business” says David Alexander.
“In all parts of the UK, but particularly in London, we have found our service and our property platform have been integral in attracting top quality agents to work with us. Once agents hear what we have to offer and the way in which we intend to deliver our service they want to be a part of the business.”
He adds: “A further benefit that distinguishes Apropos from its rivals is that our business partners have the opportunity to build up a monthly recurring income and, more importantly, build up a residual value for themselves for the future.”
