Our Managing Director, Patrick Garratt started Purple Frog in 2007 in the Midlands, with a focus on helping students improve their accommodation experience, the company has grown and evolved drastically since then, with offices in the East and West Midlands, and the Southwest and provides a full range of services for all property types.
The board of seven directors have over 100 years of experience in the market, many of the directors are property investors and developers themselves.
Our focus on creating properties that tenants want to make their home, and then looking after them as they deserve to be looked after gives us purpose and ensures our property investors make the right returns.
Our values help to guide us to make the right decisions every day which help us to satisfy our clients and tenants.
Helpful: We’re helpful to every single client, and to the communities we serve.
Honest: We’re honest and genuine, we manage expectations, and we believe in telling the truth.
Fair: We treat out team, tenants, clients, and contractors fairly.
Fun: We like to have fun, because along with quality and service, we just want to make people happy.
