Jonathan Ambrose

Carbon based visionary, realist, entrepreneurial type dude

Jonathan Ambrose is a simple carbon based life form who analyses broken at buildings and is founder of thePropertyBid.com, the auction for the private residential lettings sector.

It won the 'Best Innovation' and finalist for 'Best Website' at the 2010 Landlord Award Show. The service aims to address the increasing problem of gazumping amongst private tenants when seeking a new rental home, in a fair environment.

He's also a co-founder of thingstorent.co.uk and rentingcrowd.com, which are rental portal sites offering great deals on everything & anything (within reason) that can be rented or hired.

Apart from all of that films, video games, travelling (St Vincent & the Grenadines being the no. 1 favourite place), photography, comedy, martial arts, an avid Arsenal fan, cycling, cooking, innovation, technology and spending quality time with family & friends are all fundamental to his world!

My Human Will Sign Along the Dotted Line

Dogs, as they say, are a man's best friend and to the vast majority of owners, they are! As a Maintenance Surveyor for Local Authorities & Housing Associations across the country, I have encountered some truly mind boggling examples of pet care.

That 'G' Word Is Back!

Yep, boys and girls, gazumping is here and knocking on the front door of every potential tenant! The former and current scourge of the property sales has transgressed over to the private lettings sector and is showing no sign of leaving.

From Bed to Desk in Less Than 60 Minutes

Not only do you save on public transport by working close to home, but you can also save money on expensive food and overpriced lattés. At some point we've all been guilty of spending an eyebrow raising amount of our pay packet on over-priced and over-salted lunch meals.
