In February 2010, all three founders were posted in Mumbai, India on work assignments. Dileep Singh Rathore and Emmanuel Pappas were producing a feature film project and were setting up production office in North Mumbai. Meanwhile, Christos Pappas was contracted as Lead Developer to work on an online music startup in Bandra, Mumbai.
The team decided, rather than staying in Hotel rooms for the year it was better to find a three bedroom apartment to share closer to their office.
After spending nearly two months searching for a rental home in Mumbai and having braved the hours of traffic, countless homes and estate agents, all three decided to sublet a friends ocean view apartment in Bandra and avoid the complications and inconvenience of searching for property in India.
What they encountered during the search process was a lack of adequate photographs online; open house timings; inconsistency of brokerage fees and lack of transparency. Therefore, they realised a number of inefficiencies and a need which was not being met by the existing sites.
In October 2010 they decided to start developing a portal that would simplify the search experience and provide quality listings, without the unnecessary clutter.
PropertyFeast has been built to provide quality listings to home seekers of properties for sale and rent across India. All properties listed on PropertyFeast are represented by credible agents and developers, thus making it 100% Agent/Developer site. If you are an Agent/Developer and would like to be a part of PropertyFeast please contact [email protected] to request invitation details.
We are excited to launch PropertyFeast in India and believe our platform will improve the real estate practices and consumer experience here.
All three Founders are Entrepreneurs, with business and technology backgrounds. We formed Propertyfeast in October 2010 and set our sites on the Indian market for our launch.
