Montagu Evans: Building Opportunity into Market Leadership

23rd December 2019

Montagu Evans have been using LandInsight for almost two years, and it's made all the difference. Take a look, here:


The hero

Montagu Evans are property planning and development experts. For nearly a century they have helped clients shape some of UK's largest residential, commercial, and mixed-use projects.

They're pros when it comes to big-scale projects, having put their name on developments like Westfield London, the British Museum, and the O2 Arena.

Saying they know their stuff is a bit of an understatement.

  • Advising over 40,000 residential units with a £6 billion land value
  • Working in over 350 client partnerships
  • Using LandInsight since April 2018

So what's changed?

In the modern on-demand world, clients expect answers faster than ever. To keep providing their outstanding client services, Montagu Evans needed a new way to offer air-tight proposals – and fast.

Montagu Evans are no strangers to change. Over their near century-long lifespan, they've had to adapt a lot to not only survive, but to thrive. And a huge part of that is their willingness to embrace technology.

By strategically searching for off-market development opportunities, Montagu Evans knew they'd be able to maximise the value of development opportunities for their clients.

And that's why they chose LandInsight.

"To get the best opportunities we have to act fast. That means adopting the best tech out there" 


How LandInsight's helped

Chris Kerrison, Investment Surveyor at Montagu Evans, uses LandInsight every day to find off-market development opportunities. 

Chris can secure the best investments for his clients before his competitors even know they've missed out.

Ownership layer

Using LandInsight's ownership layer, Chris can see the decision-maker and their contact details for any site, instantly. He doesn't have to waste time speaking to the wrong people.

With site information, £ per square foot value, and contact information all in one place, Chris can approach land-owners quickly so that his clients never miss a great investment.

Planning alerts

Planning alerts allow Chris to find new developments, potential clients, and to keep an eye on his competition's planning applications.

We deliver planning alerts directly to Chris's inbox based on exactly what he's looking for, saving him a lot of time on manual searches and letting him spot trends or developments that require his immediate attention.

That means he can offer his clients a better, faster, less risky experience (and save himself a bucketload of time too).

Customer Success

New tech can sometimes be confusing, but our Customer Success team helped Chris to get up and running in no time. He can turn to the team for expert support, training, and guidance – really setting himself up for success, and ramping up his results in no time.

"I've found that Customer Success is a very useful tool to help me guide myself through difficulties."

Thanks for that, Chris – it means a lot.


The impact

With LandInsight, Chris and the team at Montagu Evans can efficiently assess off-market development opportunities and planning applications, saving them a lot of time both sourcing sites and managing their workflow.

Chris can now give his clients a better, faster service. He can provide the crucial information needed to make the right decisions – de-risking potential developments in minutes.

In fact, Chris estimates that LandInsight is helping him save an incredible 75% of his time – that's like adding another six hours to his working day, every day.

Imagine what you could do with those extra hours.
