We like to think we’re a little different from the 800+ prop-tech companies here in the UK. For one, we don't label ourselves a prop-tech. We're an online creative studio with a dedicated team that's busy interpreting briefs, hand-crafting visuals and delivering multi-platform projects. We have a core team of 7 working out of a beautiful old brewery in Hampshire, and the same number of freelancer partners which keeps us agile and able to keep to deadlines. Our breadth and knowledge of property, sales, marketing, design & cgi makes us unique in the category.
We’re a family business from an award-winning Estate Agency background with over 75 years' combined estate agency experience between us. We understand the need for speed, flexibility and advice and thank goodness, we're famous for all three!
In a previous life our MD John, won an award for Best Estate Agency Marketing in the UK and went on to be a judge in the marketing category for the Estate Agency of the Year Awards. John also wrote the RICS Guide to Property Photography, has appeared on the BBC and regularly travels up and down the country giving talks on property photography. After 50+ years working as an estate agent, later as a property photographer and then as an editor, he's been around the block a few times and has seen most things two or three times over.
Tom is our Creative & Marketing Director. His Masters is in Marketing and he has worked for major international brands in the marketing role. Tom joined the business in 2016 and has made it his mission to build Doctor Photo (now DCTR) into the trusted business it is today, serving over 1,800 agents, photographers and property developers including 6 of the 11 largest development companies in the UK.
We’re fast-to-act (especially with our market-leading 2-hour service!), always available at the end of a phone, collaborative and professional, and we’re not just a piece of software…we’re human. We talk plain english, deliver results and yes, we really do love doing what we do even though, on occasion, we find ourselves working into the early hours.
EASy (Estate Agency System) was conceived in 2012 and at the time there was nothing else like it. To the best of our knowledge, we were the first anywhere to offer photo-editing services to the property industry.
Even now, having spent well over £100,000 on EASy's development, there's still nothing like it when it comes to flexibility and user-friendliness. Our developers, Dolphin Networks of Guildford, completely understand the need for an effective, efficient interface between our customers and the latest digital products that we wish to deliver to them. And they also appreciate that DCTR is continuously evolving so they have built our software in a way that makes it able to keep pace with our growth.
