Propertyfinder.ae, the UAE’s leading property portal, was selected amongst Dubai’s top performing SME’s for the second successive cycle at the Dubai SME 100 awards ceremony. A premier ranking of Dubai’s 100 top performing SME’s, the initiative rewards the highest levels of achievement, entrepreneurialism, innovation and business acumen demonstrated by small and medium enterprises in the emirate.
As the UAE’s finest entrepreneurs gathered at the the event at Dubai World Trade Centre, propertyfinder.ae’s CEO and Founder Michael Lahyani said, “Featuring in the list of Dubai’s top 100 SME’s for the second time in a row is a proud moment for us as the competition this year was tougher with three times the number of applications as compared to 2012. 2013 has also been a milestone year for us with new office launches across the GCC and being recognised once again in a much bigger landscape is a great way to wrap up the year’s achievements.”
The acknowledgment, which comes straight from the government of Dubai, is testament to the arduous journey that Lahyani and Managing Director and Partner, Renan Bourdeau, embarked on as they set up the company in 2007. Today, propertyfinder.ae is the number one property portal in the market with over 90,000 live properties and 3,500 registered brokers with visits to the website growing by 105% since 2012.
“The award reaffirms that propertyfinder.ae continues to provide a fulfilling property search experience on the Internet even after 7 years of being in the industry. The website is a trusted resource for millions of online users, who come to us time and time again to find the property they need,” said Bourdeau.
