The Urban Collective (“UrbanCo”) provides the most transparent and efficient end-to-end solution for rental search that puts tenants first. We support tenants in finding properties in neighbourhoods that fit their lifestyle and requirements, quickly and without any hassles. Our unique concierge service (“Sherpa” service) enables tenants to work with local area experts who assist them find the best property options and manage the rental workflow for the tenants. Our service is backed by a mobile app that allows the tenants to organise the search efficiently and coordinate with their family and friends so they can reach a joint decision about chosen property quickly. The app also allows chat and commenting on shortlisted properties to enable joint decisions effortlessly. With our UrbanCo app, you can: - Find a property to rent in London based on your lifestyle choices such as commute times or proximity to schools, parks, hospitals etc. - Add commute time for multiple people per search (e.g. if you are sharing the property with your friends or family, find property results in areas that match everyone’s commute requirements) - See properties across London based on your lifestyle criteria, not just a specific postcode - Define your personalised top 3 search criteria or deal breakers; rate each property that you shortlist or visit on these criteria - Create multiple Shortlists; comment, take photos or videos, and add ratings for each property (before and after the viewing) - Share your shortlist, comments and ratings, in real time, with your friends, family, colleagues, etc. We call them your tribe members! - Chat with your tribe to coordinate viewings, share opinions, etc. UrbanCo helps you to finalise your new rental property more quickly: - Always know which properties are your best options based on all tribe members’ ratings and opinions - For extra support, sign up with a Sherpa – your personal concierge who can do all the heavy lifting for you (search, coordinate with agents, organise viewings)! So you can focus on being the superstar that you are, and get a professional to help find you your dream home! Think of UrbanCo as your personal social network for property search.
