Mosaic Living, a Build to Rent service to advise, develop and operate Build to Rent communities across the UK, launches.
Mosaic Living, a Build to Rent service, launches. This collaboration brings together companies in the UK Build to Rent sector to advise, develop, and operate Build to Rent communities across the UK.
“There are a lot of people talking about Build to Rent, but few have first-hand experience. Mosaic Living partners have successfully delivered Build to Rent. Collectively, we’ve developed £200m worth of Build to Rent assets; we’ve been recognised by Costar as the number one investment advisor in Southeast England in Q1 2022 for one of the largest Build to Rent acquisitions in the Thames Valley; we manage over 6,000 residential properties across 200 sites in the UK; and we have created numerous engaging lifestyle and development brands that resonate with consumers.”
Mike Shearn, Co-Founder, Mosaic Living
“Mosaic Living is a classic example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. Our clients value our development expertise and they’re constantly asking if we could provide more services. Under the umbrella of Mosaic Living, we can now offer our clients end-to-end BTR services in collaboration with partners we trust.”
Mark Lewis, Managing Director, Crossmark
Mosaic Living pools the collective knowledge, expertise and shared ethos of its partners: Crossmark Developments, Haslams Estate Agents, Campbell Gordon, Sennen Property Management, and Urbane.
“Moasic Living gives us the ability to offer our clients a 360-degree Build to Rent service, or any part of it that they require. Acting as the acquiring/investment agent, we transacted three Build to Rent projects recently, two in Reading and one in West London, and on each occasion our client had a need for different parts of the Mosaic Living offering. This is why it’s so exciting to be part of Mosaic Living; we now have this root and branch capability to service the Build to Rent investment market, which is genuinely unique in the Thames Valley.”
Duncan Campbell, Director, Campbell Gordon
Facilitating human connections and the creation and curation of vibrant communities are the principal aims of Mosaic Living and its founders.
“Typically, a lot of residential developers tend to consider the end user once planning consent has been granted. Mosaic Living is completely different. We consider the physical and emotional needs of the consumer from the conception of a scheme through to reality and beyond, and we create brands that inspire and resonate.”
Pete Hammond, Managing Director, Urbane
“A deep and broad understanding of today’s customer is key, but an appreciation of tomorrow’s customer is equally important. Lifestyles are constantly evolving and so our clients need to future proof their schemes, which is why we are constantly identifying and sharing insights that inform decision making and add value.”
Steve Woodford, Managing Director, Haslams
“Ultimately, the success of a great Build to Rent scheme is measured against financial, customer service and ESG KPIs. These things need to be managed and nothing left to chance. This focus on the customer, the client, and delivery is what we do through our people and our Mosaic Living partners.”
Tony Collings, Director, Sennen Property Management
