PropTech is a new and less explored space. And to start a company under the umbrella of PropTech was something different. Unlike others, the start was not very glamorous. They did not have many funds. It was Vijay and Sachin’s own investment with which the company was started. At first the company gained negative publicity in the press. The media claimed, “How on earth can it be so cheap? Online agent launches £99” and lots of other challenges. Some also claimed that this model is not sustainable but the success of the company proved everyone wrong.
Although success was not as easy, what did trigger their growth was their tech approach to the property market which was missing and pricing for the services.

It surely is a rat-race but you also have to run at your own pace. When you are in a service industry you have to follow the process and monitoring all the processes is very important for any industry. End of the day, it’s a matter of customer satisfaction.
