Moscow-based online broker Tranio.com is celebrating its 500th successful property transaction after just four years in business and forecasts 20–30 per cent growth by the close of 2016.
Tranio.com says the 500 clients it has helped find their own property are abroad with the most recent sale of a flat in the historical centre of Barcelona to an Austrian citizen.
The flat with a total area of 113 sq m is located in the Gothic Quarter, home to many landmarks and shops within walking distance of the seafront.
The property, not the buyer’s first purchase in Spain, will be used as a long-term rental accommodation, ensuring regular revenue, high demand and excellent capitalisation.
Since its launch in 2012, Tranio.com says it has successfully conquered the Russian market, branched out into commercial property and brought their services to buyers around the world.
In 2016, Tranio.com expects English-speaking clients to make up 10 per cent of its business.
"So far, we have sold €150,000,000 worth of property in total and closed 200 transactions just last year," says Tranio.com Managing Partner George Kachmazov.
"To achieve this, we substantially developed our services: we have in-house financial and property experts, contacts for reliable legal and tax specialists in each country as well as a network of trust property management companies all over the world.
"The philosophy of Tranio.com is simple: we don’t just sell property, we help solve the problem,” Kachmazov says.
With properties spanning residential and commercial segments for all budgets, Tranio.com's even received recognition from major international media, including the Daily Telegraph’s recent “Game of Thrones Properties” feature for a castle in Malta.
As of May 2016, the Tranio catalogue has over 100,000 properties in 60 countries from 450 agencies and developers.
