“I now see the core principles of human spirit – the acts of kindness seen across the country from individual people, companies and small business owners. And I’m proud to see this among the Build to Rent sector – from operators offering free apartments to front line staff, to companies stepping forward to offer free marketing for Build to Rent developments. In a time of crisis, unity can never fail us.”Nick Biring, Co-founder, BTR News
