Plentific.com is an innovative real estate marketplace, which is free for homebuyers and homeowners. The company was founded by Cem Savas and Emre Kazan, both former City finance professionals, after realising that property consumers in the UK were struggling to make the right property decisions due to a lack of unbiassed information, necessary financial tools and an easy access to qualified professionals and local tradesmen. Plentific, which stands for ‘plenty’ of ‘fantastic’ tools and services, was launched in April 2014 and is en route to becoming a one-stop-shop solution for property consumers in the UK.
Plentific helps professionals and local tradesmen in its ‘Find a Pro’ panel enhance their online presence via rich microsites and targeted digital marketing opportunities on both Plentific.com and other high-traffic partner websites. Via our access to a highly targeted audience, we generate high-quality customer leads to our panel members.
Plentific will continue its explosive growth in 2015, developing innovative on-demand products and features for property consumers, home professionals and tradesmen in addition to scaling its operations infrastructure to meet growing demand for the platform.
