PropertyEngine develops online technologies which assist real estate developers throughout the entire property marketing, sales and management cycle, from conception to maturity and beyond. But we know that technology alone is not enough. To bridge the gulf between good idea and "Eureka!", raw ones and zeros have to be lovingly choreographed into game-changing tools. Practical, simple, and compelling to use.
If you are a property developer, you would do well to heed that nagging feeling that something is not quite right. That it could be done better. All the planning and marketing, mandating and management, incremental improvements and a process that sometimes feels more like herding cats than creating homes. After years of working with clients who face these challenges daily, we share your desire to reduce all the complexity.
We don't have a wall-mounted mission statement, or a lofty list of nod-along goals. But, as a team, we carry it in our DNA. A conviction that the time to radically innovate, to re-look at the way that property is marketed, managed and sold, is now.
Founder / Software Developer
Corné is a futurist at heart, always innovating and scanning the technology horizon. As an avid student of Wing Chun, his Kung Fu skills extend well beyond the keyboard. If we did not have such amazing clients, we'd be tempted to add debt collection to Corné's task list.
Founder / Director
Two parts code virtuoso and two parts pioneer, Simon leads product development at PropertyEngine. He is a vigilant defender of the web, and a take-no-prisoners inventor of "the better way". He went for a haircut immediately after seeing this photo.
Jess operates silently behind the scenes helping Tom and Chris makes sense of the crazy spreadsheets and involved plans we receive on a daily bases. As a client you will never speak to Jess but we can bet she's had an impact on your sales.
Client Liaison / Listings Manager
Chris works with Tom and Jess on the front lines of managing listings. While he would probably rather be pulling handbrake turns in the latest BMW he studiously helps your developments get the best marketing they can have on a daily basis.
Client Liaison / Listings Manager
Tom is from Scotland. We routinely abuse his sultry accent to our advantage and you are most likely to be speaking to him when you call. He along side Chris and Jess make up our team that get your developments listed.
Irfan has had a massive impact on our team. He routinely interprets lightly specified tasks and issues correctly and helps the other developers find there way around our enterprise application.
Maham brings a much needed female touch to our male dominated software team. She works with Shabaz and Irfan on making our software the best it can be.
Steven is new so we are going to have to go for physical attributes here: Tall; Wears glasses; Drinks coffee and waits for things to download.
Lauren helps decode Corne and Simons "vision" into something a client might understand. Her enthusiasm in translating geek speak is a much needed quality at PropertyEngine.
Isuru's Photoshop skills, dedication to the task at hand, enthusiasm and beaming smile all shine through with his work.
