Big news from the Chinese real estate heavyhitter

Malaysian real estate company, iReal Property Sdn Bhd (iRealty), has announced that it will be joining IQI, the real estate agent network owned and operated by Juwai IQI.

With this merger, iRealty’s Kuala Lumpur, Kuantan, Johor, Perak, and Selangor agents will work under the IQI brand and technology, which includes the super-app. Muhazrol Muhamad, iRealty’s Co-Founder and CEO, will also run the Bumiputera Segment at IQI, moving forward.

Muhamad said:

“Joining Juwai IQI will give us access to the technology and greater resources that we need to keep thriving. I’m confident this merger will provide our team with new opportunities to better serve their clients and their communities.“

IQI Global Group CEO Kashif Ansari said:
