Our story

We founded Crowd with Us because we believe that the benefits of property investment and development should be shared more widely and equitably. We wanted to create a platform with the most advanced technology available, to make the investment process transparent and simple to engage with.

We subscribe to an ethos of collaboration and community, to build an investment company that you can trust. Crowd with Us democratise the world of property investment whilst educating and empowering its customers. Above all, we aim to give you an excellent return on your investment, whether you are a small or large stakeholder.
