Our Story

Ours is a story of passion. We consider real estate as the surest way of gaining financial liberty, but like countless others, we have been frustrated by the obvious pain points incumbent in the system! On an evening in August 2019, we sat by an under-construction site, sharing our vision of transforming the real-estate ecosystem in Pakistan by strengthening the pillars of transparency, accessibility and trust while pioneering the journey to property ownership. In order to realize our dream to benefit the average Pakistani, we envisioned harnessing the true power of technology. And the first transaction was made on the DAO model in April 2020!

For us that sunset was a poetic gesture signaling the end of the relentless wheels of the traditional real-estate engine. We bring experiences from the world of economics, real estate, product development to disrupt the status quo and usher in an era of empowering YOU! The journey has by no means come to an end! Join us on our mission of democratizing real estate, making it a safe and reliable space to gain returns on your hard-earned money!

Our Vision

We envision a world where developmental real estate is not booked by the selected few, but the masses in general. We believe in creating a new generation of developmental real estate entrepreneurs.

Our Mission

To make real estate accessible for everyone by using the power of data and technology.
