The UAE’s propertyfinder.ae has been shortlisted for the Online Business of the Year award, part of the prestigious 2013 Gulf Capital SMEinfo Awards. Rewarding and celebrating industry excellence, the awards are designed to elevate the standards of achievement on the Internet.
“Being selected as a finalist puts propertyfinder.ae in the esteemed group of industry leaders such as Cobone and foodonclick. We are delighted that our continuous efforts to deliver the best service online have been acknowledged and we look forward to hopefully coming out on top,” said Bharat Kumar, Marketing Director at propertyfinder.ae.
A recipient of the ‘Dubai SME 100’ and the ‘Arabia Fast Growth 500’ awards, propertyfinder.ae is a leader in the real estate digital space with visits to the website growing by 350% in the last two years.
“When we entered the realty space in 2007, people still searched for property in daily newspapers. Today’s buyer or tenant is twice more likely to use the Internet than a print source to find property. We’re proud to be one of the forerunners of this trend offering visitors an easy and fast online search experience,” commented Michael Lahyani, CEO and Founder of propertyfinder.ae.
Recently acquiring 100% of the Lebanese portal realestate.com.lb, the group aims to increase its brand presence across the GCC and Middle East. “The wealth of features on our website means that our customers can be as flexible or as advanced as they wish when searching for a property. 2013 has been a good year so far with our launch in Egypt, acquisition in Lebanon and growing website traffic and we look to continue the good work,” said Renan Bordeau, propertyfinder.ae’s Managing Director.
