About Us

The company now known as Online Marketplaces Group was founded under the name Property Portal Watch in 2008 by industry expert and former REA Group MD and CEO Simon Baker. Since then the company has gone on to become the place where the online classifieds industry comes together.
Our content is read regularly by property portal professionals all over the world and there can be few major portal sites whose bosses we haven’t at some point interviewed, shared a drink with at a Property Portal Watch conference or who one of our team hasn’t worked with or advised through our Property Portal Accelerators consultancy business over the years.

Our Mission

Whether it be through our legendary industry conferences, which still go by the name Property Portal Watch, or through our free and independent news and analysis content on OnlineMarketplaces.com, our goal is to bring the online property classifieds community together to learn from one another.
