About Us

Propertee Butler is the brainchild of Ian McLeod who has been involved in the property industry for 20 years and has experience on the ground floor of residential buildings. Ian has a passion for helping people and believes positive relationships and a safe environment are crucial factors in the successful running of any property, whether that be an apartment building or a short-stay rental property. However, prior to Propertee Butler, communication seemed to be the one aspect that lacked consistency and was evidently prohibiting that successful result.


The lightning bolt moment that sparked the beginning of Propertee Butler occurred when Ian encountered a couple of young residents who were unaware that the windows of their apartment were being washed. This was despite a multitude of signs and notices that hung around the building - one being right behind them in the elevator. He observed how they were instead on their phones checking texts and social media. Ian thought if they’re opening messages and opening Instagram, why wouldn’t they open an app with the apartments noticeboard?

From here, the thoughts snowballed. If all communication took place on an app, it could go beyond just an online noticeboard. It could be the central hub for all information – from legal documents, instructions on how the building runs, the maintenance process, to maps and information on third-party businesses like local gyms or dog-walkers. Using Propertee Butler essentially means that important messages can get out to every resident instantaneously.
