Hapondo has officially launched with a goal to connect real estate brokers with customers, focusing on residential rental properties across Qatar.

Abdulla al-Fadhala, hapondo CEO, said the platform “will redefine the way people in Qatar search for a new home to rent.”

The platform already has more than 1,500 listings, and aims to provide the best user experience possible and to improve the quality of listings of real estate in Qatar, he continued.

“Hapondo was born to fill the gap we saw in the market. It’s 2020 and people are fed up with looking at low quality photos or poor descriptions of properties. We want to help connect tenants looking for a new home with brokers who have quality offerings,” al-Fadhala said.

Al-Fadhala and his partners, Haajerah Khan, Abdulaziz al-Yazeedi, and Ahmad al-Khanji, co-founded the company after realizing the difficult and frustrating process of finding a new home in Qatar.

After studying the market, the team realized that “not only was the real estate marketplace operating at low quality levels, but also some of the leading companies operating in the sector were based in the UAE.”

Al-Yazeedi, who is hapondo’s Chief Sales Officer, said the team believes in the importance of creating a product that was for the Qatari market by those who understand it.
