Pushing UK Real Estate Forward: REdirect Partners with SAY Property Consulting

Staff Member Callum Board

Client Success Director

Here at REdirect in London, we are delighted to announce that we are launching a brand-new strategic partnership with SAY Property Consulting. We believe that this relationship will enable both of our firms to deliver an even greater range of services and quality of support to our clients across the UK. 

Who Are SAY Property Consulting? 

SAY is a leading property advisory business offering strategic operational management services in the living and mixed-use sectors. SAY was established in 2021 by individuals who have worked in the sector for more than a decade and have collaborated with numerous leading developers and investors. The company has already amassed an impressive track record of leveraging its team members’ expertise to drive efficiency, add value, and boost return on investment for companies operating in the UK’s rental living market. 

In particular, SAY is proud of HereSAY, its lead-to-lease mystery shopping benchmark which aims to measure the lead-to-lease journey in the rental living sector, including the build-to-rent (BTR), single-family rental (SFR), and purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) markets. 

SAY cares about creating better places through the combined utilisation of data, passion, and unparalleled sector and operational knowledge. 

What Does This Partnership Mean for REdirect’s Clients? 

This partnership represents a significant step forward and opportunity for REdirect and our clients. It will enable us to provide a more comprehensive offering to our clients in the UK’s rental living market sector thanks to SAY’s consultancy advice on important matters such as operational budgets, amenities and services, landlord and tenant solutions, and estate management strategy.

SAY Property Consulting has, in a relatively short time, established itself as a key player in the UK’s residential sector, providing expert consultancy advice for some of the country’s leading residential and mixed-use schemes. The scope of SAY’s expertise encompasses the entire life cycle of a development from the design and planning stage to the construction phase and, eventually, through to occupation.

At REdirect Consulting, we have been a global player in the property technology (PropTech) sector for the past 25 years. Our innovative solutions include Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and utilising artificial intelligence (AI) to help our clients to streamline their operations, reduce their costs, and increase efficiency across all aspects of their business. 

The rental living market sector in the UK is in its infancy compared to the same sector in the US and Europe. Even though this sector has seen significant growth over the past decade, rental living still represents just 1% of the overall housing sector and less than 5% of the housing rental market in the United Kingdom. 

By combining our expertise in real estate technology with the knowledge of the team at SAY, we will be even better placed to support our clients in streamlining and automating their business processes, delivering growth through improved return on investment, and providing inspiring places for people to live and work across the UK. 

Debra Yudolph is the Founder and CEO of SAY. She says, “The partnership with REdirect enables us to bolster the support we can offer to our clients in the rental living space. Bringing together our knowledge of strategic operational management and REdirect’s expertise in innovative PropTech solutions will add real value to our clients. The importance of choosing and implementing the right technology platform for operational assets cannot be understated, and designing the operational approach alongside the procurement and implementation of the tech stack will always deliver the best results.”
