Everyone has an image of what their dream house looks like. However, finding the perfect one is one of the most important, yet challenging and somewhat daunting decision most will have to make in their lifetime. This is where PropertyGuru comes into the picture.

The year was 2006, in Singapore. There was a flurry of activity in the property market, brought about by the bullish economy, but easy access to reliable information was still largely absent.

Spurred by the property boom and personal frustrations in relying on classified ads in newspapers for property search, PropertyGuru Group was conceived by co-founders Steve Melhuish and Jani Rautiainen to introduce a smarter, intuitive online means for property seekers to find their ideal property.

Riding on the advent in internet technology and the changing habits of consumers to go online to search for information, PropertyGuru became the first in the market to revolutionise and shape the property search process at each step of the way.

Today, PropertyGuru has expanded overseas in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia and has become synonymous with property search, continuing to strengthen through focus on innovation to transform markets and challenge the status quo.



PropertyGuru Group is Asia’s leading online property portal group used by more than 11 million property buyers, viewing over 90 million property pages and generating over 350,000 enquiries for real estate developer and agent advertisers – every month – across Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. The Group has developed and launched 15 mobile applications in four countries and three languages. At the end of 2013, the Group recorded over 1.3 million downloaded mobile apps in the region, resulting in a slew of three MOBEX awards sweep.

Headquartered in Singapore, PropertyGuru was founded in 2006 by two entrepreneurs with a vision to simplify the property search process and help buyers, sellers and investors make better property decisions faster. Taking advantage of Asia’s growing affluence, property demand and online explosion, the company received its first VC investment funding in 2008 and secured approximately $60m investment in 2012 from Deutsche Telekom, South East Asia’s largest digital investment to date. PropertyGuru was also the first to integrate its website with social media, first to launch Singapore’s only dedicated property newspaper – read by more than 100,000 readers island-wide every month – and it has also developed a property events platform, with approximately 30 shows held annually across four countries, addressing 30,000 potential property buyers on the ground.
