Building Relations Ltd is a niche Public Relations agency which specialises in the world of property. Working with large and small housebuilders, estate agents and other property and construction related firms; we will help you raise the profile of your company and product both locally and nationally.
At Building Relations we understand that good PR is more than just getting press coverage and that a well thought out grass-roots PR campaign, generating positive word of mouth can be far more effective.
So, whether you are looking to increase sales, improve your reputation locally or simply get your name out there, we can help you create a unique PR strategy designed especially to meet your needs.
One of our core values at Building Relations is being open and honest with our clients. This means that if we don’t think something will work, we will advise you against pursuing this activity. PR can be time consuming and developing and pitching features can take days of time. Developing ideas that we know will not produce the desired outcome is, we feel, a waste of everyone’s time and resources and will only result in disappointment. That said, we are always happy to be challenged and are most happy to be proved wrong.
We know it’s not enough to just mirror marketing campaigns, so we create and deliver innovative stand-alone communications solutions that get you noticed.

With Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered smart home assistants like Apple Siri and Amazon Alexa working their way into our everyday lives, the property industry is not being left behind – PropTech is the next big thing in the property sector.

From celebrity owned homes for sale to providing comment on how beliefs and superstition can make or break a sale; no day is the same when it comes to looking after our selection of individual and unique estate, lettings and buying agent clients.
With experience working with some of the world’s most prominent interior designers and landscape architects such as David Linley and Jo Thompson, we are well-versed in generating coverage on the latest in interior and garden trends.
We have an impressive black book or architects, surveyors and property management clients, which helps us inspire some of our most creative and newsworthy ideas – its these ideas that give us the most satisfaction out of seeing visions come to life.
Rachel transformed our approach to PR. She created powerful and relevant local campaigns that were truly positive for public relations with local people, not just press releases. As a result of her initiative, ideas and hard work our PR is now more meaningful, gets better results and has done wonders for our local reputation.

Rachel is a first class PR. She has excellent writing skills, an extremely indepth knowledge of the property market and is always very happy to go the extra mile to help in whatever way she can. She has the ability to ‘think outside the box’ too which means that she has some excellent ideas and is a reliable source of inspirational story lines. Having known Rachel for many years now, I have found her help to be invaluable and very much enjoy working with her.

I have always found Kathryn to be extremely professional and personable. She is knowledgable about her clients and informed about the property market, as well as being media savvy and reliable when it comes to sourcing and delivering information. She is organised and understands the need for a quick response to queries. Kathryn is a PR I’m always happy to hear from and work with.

Building Relations PR has been instrumental in driving awareness for Upad. In terms of a disruptor brand we are still relatively ‘new’ up against our High Street competitors, but despite this we have had phenomenal results in the 16 months that Building Relations has been handling our PR, with mentions most months in the Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Times and numerous trade titles. We have got to a position now where I am often directly approached for comment by key journalists, and I am regularly quoted alongside some of the property industry’s biggest names (many of whom have been in the industry a lot longer than me!) The team go above and beyond, therefore would be a valuable PR partner for any aspiring or growing PropTech business.James Davis, CEO and Founder of Upad
