Global property listings network ListGlobally has notched yet another partnership in Central Asia with real estate portal Homsters.kz having met with the company's executives in Bangkok at the recent Property Portal Watch Conference.
Property Portal Watch Conferences are organized especially with C-suite networking in mind, and the Bangkok event, held at the Radisson Blu hotel in the heart of the city, was no exception.
Over the three nights of the June conference, several social events were held at a variety of hip local venues allowing portal leaders like Homesters.com co founder and CEO Andrew Olejnik and ListGlobally Director of Business Development Geoffroy Reiser to discuss business informally and follow through with a hand shake.
Homsters.kz is part of Homsters.com, an international real estate technology company co-founded by Olejnik and Maria Ren which has generated more than $US740 million in sales for 250 developments for 160 developers in 6 countries.
The company works to build performance-driven real estate marketplaces and provide digital marketing services for developers.
Apart from Homsters.kz, Homsters operates a marketplace in Vietnam (Timhome.vn) and provides digital marketing tools for developers in Spain, UAE, Ukraine and Russia.
Olejnik and Reiser seal the deal
Olejnik, who was also a speaker at the Bangkok conference, says the deal with ListGlobally will further enhance the integration of Kazakhstan's real estate market in the global context.
"It will expand the possibilities for local developers and brokers to promote their developments internationally and for Kazakhs to search real estate abroad.
"I would like to mention that both of these areas have good development prospects," he says.
"The demand for property buying and renting in Kazakhstan is partially generated by international companies and overseas employees of local companies. Local people are also actively interested in property investment abroad, in particular in recreational areas."
Kazakhstan comes of age
Just a year ago Olejnik explains, Kazakhstan, the largest country in Central Asia and the region's most promising real estate market, was pretty much an blank spot on the map in terms of technologies.
"In September 2015 we launched Homsters.kz and brought to local market the international state-of-the-art real estate search standards based on the latest technologies in the fields of usability, user experience and visualization," he says.
"We now deliver the most efficient interaction between sellers and buyers of real estate."
