WHAT IS ZAMEEN.COM?
We find that we're being asked this question less and less as time goes on, and we attribute that to the fact that Zameen.com has become a household name. Nevertheless, if by some strange and unfortunate twist of fate you are still unaware of what Zameen.com is, let us enlighten you.
Zameen.com is Pakistan's leading real estate portal. We connect buyers with sellers and owners with renters across the country, and we do a darn fine job of it, if we may say so ourselves. We are quickly becoming a central online hub for all things real estate in the country, one that everyone can use with ease and get value out of-be it a university student renting a room or a property investor looking for a new project to buy into.
Behind Zameen.com is a team of dedicated and talented individuals (which is our fancy way of saying a bunch of highly skilled tech nerds, design pros and geeky wordsmiths) with decades worth of experience in creating easy-to-use platforms for all manner of online transactions.
We bring to our users only the most innovative and useful of features - as evidenced by our extensive and still-growing Maps Section and the Urdu version of our website - and we love working off of our users' feedback to ensure the perfect product.
WHAT WE AREN'T
Zameen.com is not a brokerage firm or a massive real estate agency. We don't charge anyone any sort of commission on real estate transactions and we most certainly do not sell our users' information to third parties. We exist solely to facilitate the beautiful business of real estate, and all of our revenue comes from advertising.
HOW WE STARTED OUT
Zameen.com was founded in 2006 by two Pakistani entrepreneur brothers, Zeeshan Ali Khan and Imran Ali Khan. In 2012, Gilles Blanchard, co-founder of SeLoger.com - France's largest property portal - came on board as an angel investor and took up the role of Chairman at Zameen.com.
In 2014, two of the most successful venture capital firms in the ASEAN region, Catcha Group and Frontier Digital Ventures, invested in a non-controlling interest in Zameen.com.
Riding that wave of success, we have rolled out the Urdu version of our website, launched our mobile website, and started publishing a dedicated monthly property magazine. The Zameen App, available for download on the App Store, is the latest addition to our proud tradition of excellence in service provision.
OUR CORE PRINCIPLES
- One should not have to motor around the entire town, sweating under the fierce sun of our beautiful country, to find the right bit of property.
- Essential real estate information should be available to everyone at the click of a button, in their preferred language.
- Certified professionals make everything considerably easier for all involved.
- Having fun.
