Building a CRM Platform for Property


You’re building your UK investment property portfolio. You’ve decided on the best places to invest in UK property. You’re super organised and you have the skills and knowledge for smarter property investing. But if only there was one platform where you could both manage your existing portfolio AND track potential deals in your pipeline.

Property Store info:

• While growing our portfolio, it was incredibly frustrating having to use spreadsheets to manage the whole portfolio and a mix of other systems
• Jakes background is in App development for big banks
• Nicolas background is in corporate branding
• So Jake called up some contacts (namely Sanj) who is a senior developer at a blue-chip bank
• And we built Property Store
• We then signed with the Prosperity Network, meaning that anyone that joins gets access to our software until 3rd November 2022
• We now have over 500 users with access to the software
• We launch a limited release to our first public users outside prosperity on the 7th June this year, with MAJOR new functionality that hasn’t been seen before in the industry
