What’s the story behind Real Developer
In July 2019, Grosvenor Estates released their YouGov survey findings, showing a pretty dismal perception of developers, and trust towards them. Grosvenor’s ‘Rebuilding Trust’ report was followed closely by the British Property Federation’s revelations alongside it’s Redefining Real Estate piece, stating only 27% of public had a favourable view toward the property sector.
It was clear to TrustedLand as an SME land trading platform, which was created with a view to celebrating experience and professionalism, that there was an opportunity to start showcasing those who were capable of bucking the outward trend of perception.
The Estate Gazette was the first media platform to support the initiative, following a review of SME PD activity, where ‘amateur’ developers were considered as the cause behind many of the ‘slum PD’ schemes that had been reported in the press. Listen here to the original podcast interview with EG’s Sam McClary from 2019 Now, alongside certification, profiles and icons, Real Developer has evolved to provide each year’s recognised firms with profile raising opportunity, access to industry leaders and advisors, access to key partner exclusive rates and importantly, connection to land personnel and introductions, through requirements publication and matching.
