Real Developer accreditation
Now entering it’s 4th year, Real Developer is a highly unique accreditation programme powered by land software firm, LandTech. In order to give recognition to established, professional SME developers looking to stand out and grow.
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.
With a view to celebrating experience and professionalism, 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.
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.
