We are real estate experts focused on three things: Communications. Strategy. Research.

Blackstock provides strategic consultancy and property PR, supporting clients to meet clear organisational objectives. We help clients tell the best version of their story to investors, customers, politicians and the media. We do this with some of the biggest names in the sector, operating globally from London.

More than simply a property PR agency, we’re an integrated strategic consulting, public relations and research agency focused on real estate and construction.

Our experienced senior team works with market leading clients and high growth innovators, supporting their decision-making and helping shape their business strategies. We support on organisational outcomes ranging from raising capital, growing profiles and generating new business; to helping create customer-driven operational platforms and navigating the convergence of ESG, technology and traditional real estate.

We translate policy into plain English, creating hard-hitting property PR campaigns to help move the dial. We also specialise in crisis management and digital communications, working with global and European media from our London base.

Watch and listen

We create regular market analysis on politics, economics, the property sector, retail and technology. Watch our TV interviews or subscribe to our podcasts.

Using data to drive business rates debate

Blackstock’s in-house research team have generated significant national press coverage in recent years around business rates and the growing chaos the regime is in.

Launching a nationwide housing brand

Blackstock was appointed by Moda in early 2015 to build up its corporate profile with UK investors, business media and the wider property sector; while helping develop its brand narrative and consumer profile across national press.

Major policy report looking at progressive reforms to planning

In 2019 Blackstock conceived, created and launched an incisive and visionary report to unlock the economic potential of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc powerhouse, home to home to some of the UK’s most innovative life sciences and tech businesses such as AstraZeneca, Apple and Microsoft. This piece of work included a multi-disciplinary campaign across media, digital and public affairs with stellar results.

Groundbreaking placemaking and community engagement

Blackstock has been engaged by Federated Hermes International since 2015 to promote NOMA, its 20-acre regeneration project in Manchester city centre.

Blackstock Consulting Daily Briefing

We launched the Blackstock Consulting Daily Briefing in response to the emerging Covid-19 crisis to update existing clients on pandemic’s implications for the real estate, retail and hospitality sectors. 

Our PR agency is constantly growing. As a result, we’re looking for smart, ambitious people with great ideas, first rate marketing communications skills and the ability to work hard. So please get in touch and let’s talk.

Blackstock's work navigated seamlessly between offering corporate and creative advice, unlocking opportunities and relationships at the highest level. And the results they generated were outstanding – ranging from major pieces on Radio 4, in the FT and Mail through to a front-page campaign with The Sun.

Nick Varney, Merlin Entertainments Plc

Blackstock demonstrated a genuine technical understanding of our business and investor requirements, with a clear ability to translate this for a wider audience of investors and stakeholders. This helped us articulate our strategy effectively with very well received media collateral combining insight, research and market commentary. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Alex Greaves, M&G Real Estate

Blackstock has proven to be adept at both research and media, connecting Colliers with high class publications and broadcast opportunities such as the FT and BBC Radio 4 and working across all areas of our business. I can't rate them highly enough and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Richard Crook, Colliers-International

Blackstock deliver first class copy and events and have helped us squeeze more media coverage from our news stories. They’ve contributed a wealth of ideas to support NOMA’s profile and are genuinely passionate about the brand. Blackstock’s team works closely with our many consultants and has constantly been on hand to support us with energy, enthusiasm and a high level of integrity.
