The networking platform for property professionals – UK Homes Network – launches by founding brothers from the West Midlands, Chris and David Tremlett. UK Homes Network is a web-based and mobile-based app where people can find and talk to others working in any aspect of the property industry across the whole of the UK.
“UK Homes Network will enable users to supercharge their own networks, explore limitless opportunities and stay ahead of industry trends – all in one space. It will enable us to create a collective voice to effect meaningful change with policymakers. It is the first and only platform of its type available in the UK.”Chris Tremlett, Co-Founder, UK Homes Network
Chris – who has worked in property for the last 12 years (first as an estate agent and then in marketing roles) – began developing the project after he was made redundant from his previous position. His brother David has now also joined him on this new venture. They both have an estate agency background.
“I started developing it last year. I wanted to modernise and streamline the networking process and make it easier for people to not only develop their personal brands, but make it easier for them to reach out directly to other professionals – that’s what UK Homes Network is all about. We want to encompass everyone in the property industry and be as inclusive as possible.”Chris Tremlett, Co-Founder, UK Homes Network
Chris believes there’s a demonstrable need for property focussed platforms like UK Homes Network because other professional social media platforms, such as LinkedIn, attract often unwelcome advertisers like recruiters and website developers which interrupts the flow of communication.
The new platform is based on a subscription model and offers three tiers for people in the industry to subscribe to.
“Ours is a subscription model at a similar price to Spotify or Netflix – so there’ll be a standard tier for individuals at £12.99 per month, an influencer tier for people wanting to share content like podcasts and videos, and there’ll be an industry tier for larger businesses where they’ll have access to more streaming services and be able to share courses and events. They’ll also be able to show sponsored content for monetisation.
“Additionally, there’s a space within the app where members can share commercial information like land deals and property investment opportunities. Because we’re using a subscription model, those users who express an interest are actively motivated to see those posts because they want to do business. There’s no spam and no algorithms – if you want to post, it will be seen by the right people because everyone on the platform is a property professional looking for opportunities or sharing knowledge and experience.”Chris Tremlett, Co-Founder, UK Homes Network
In April, the Tremlett brothers will be promoting the new platform at the Property Investor Show at ExCel in London.
