“In a short span of time, the company has demonstrated its strong value proposition for the real estate ecosystem and has become the market leader in mortgage broking in the UAE with healthy unit economics,” commented GV Ravishankar, MD, Sequoia India.

The PropTech market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.8% between 2022-2032 as startups and incumbent real estate companies use modern technology to make the home buying experience less stressful.
