“Whilst the valuation profession hasn’t evolved much in the past 30 years, we certainly have! Preston Rowe Paterson thinks outside the box and utilises technologies and thought leadership to innovate”
Preston Rowe Paterson prides itself on providing innovative solutions to our clients. Doing things “the same old way” stifles innovation and we have worked with many clients to provide tailor made solutions to assist in their property decision making.
Our PRP Online software system is constantly evolving and being innovated to allow our team to not only gain efficiencies and consistencies, but to harness the power of data when we assist our clients.
Our latest innovation is a brand new concept developed by Preston Rowe Paterson – International Valuers and Consultants.
We call it Speak-Val™.
Speak-Val™ allows you hear key findings, warnings and alerts about a property directly from the valuer in an innovative 2-3 minute video presentation that you can view or listen to at your convenience.
For two years in a row, Preston Rowe Paterson has been recognised by both of Australia’s leading property professional bodies for their Innovation.
In 2020, PRP were the proud winners of the (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveryors) ‘Innovation’ Award for our Occupant Assisted Inspection App in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and finalists in the API (Australian Property Institute) ‘Innovaton in Property’ award.
2021 saw PRP become a finalist in the RICS ‘Innovation’ Award again for Speak-Val™, with the winner to be annouced late September.
In 2021, Preston Rowe Paterson released an exclusive Occupant Assisted Inspection Application called ‘PRP Assist’.
This application links directly to our internal valuation system called ‘PRP Online’ and assists us in conducting valuation assessments where physical inspections are not possible due to COVID-19.
The application allows the occupants of the subject property to answer a series of questions related to the internal and external make-up of their property and submit accompanying photographs through the PRP Assist portal. Once the occupant has submitted the data, it is then sent directly to PRP Online for our valuers to complete their valuation reports. The PRP Assist process complies with the API’s declared time of crisis and/or state of emergency valuation protocol guidelines.
