INTRODUCTION About The Property Jungle

The Property Jungle is the market leading provider of websites to the property industry in the UK and has successfully delivered over 1,800 sites for Estate and Lettings Agencies since 2003. The company was founded by Mike Smithson, a veteran of the property industry, with 36 years’ experience working in Estate Agency, Relocation, New Homes Development, as well as IT Project Management and Web Development. The 20-strong team at The Property Jungle includes many other agency veterans, an extremely talented group of designers, developers and programmers including a Doctor of Computer Science, a former university lecturer and an Oxford graduate. This mixture of agency expertise and technology know-how makes The Property Jungle your ideal partner because, unlike almost all local, or non-industry-specialist web developers, we understand your business, your jargon, your software, your objectives and the very specific legal requirements of websites for Estate & Lettings agents today. We are true specialists at building property websites. About This Project Almond Property Services is a well-established sales and lettings agency in Hornchurch that wants to expand by franchising and at the same time wants to change its core market to offer both traditional estate agency service and an “online” service. We discussed the possibility of building a site “like Purple Bricks”, however their initial investment ran to 6 digits and currently they employ 40 full time developers working on the site alone. This is beyond your budget at the moment. What we can do for you for much more affordable money is build a site which gives the impression that customers are transacting with the site automatically, when in reality you are responding to output from the site. As customers complete forms on the site you receive emails with the contents, they receive acknowledgements and you then make site updates. In this way you can allow customers to pay for services, upload photos and text etc. You will still have editorial control. I understand you use Thesaurus at the moment. Whilst this works, you may find it limits your growth in managing multi-branches and also find that site updates will be slow. You may want to look at Dezrez as a more viable alternative for the model you are describing.
