- Bumbung opens its doors to users and real estate agents
- Hoping to connect home-seekers to hardest working agents
KUALA Lumpur-based Bumbung has launched its property portal, calling itself Malaysia’s “first tech-based real estate company.”
Bumbung (‘roof’ in Malay) is now open to the public and ready to help home-seekers make informed decisions with established and reputable real-estate agents, the company said in a statement.
The startup was cofounded by Gadiy Lim and Claire Berneron, based on their personal experiences and observations on purchasing, renting and selling property.
“Our proposition was to create a bridge between home-seekers looking for their dream homes and match them to the hardest working agents in the country who may have them,” said Lim.
“Our KPI (key performance indicator) is to ensure each transaction and request is convenient, transparent and innovative,” he added.
Home-seekers only need to key in their requirements, and within 24 hours will be connected to five relevant properties or agents that best fit their requirements, Bumbung said in a statement.
Real estate agents just have to list their property once, and will be notified by bumbung if a match is made with a listing in the database. Real estate agents will only be charged based on the number of confirmed viewings.
Bumbung also includes a rating system for real estate agents.
The startup said it already has support from real estate companies such as Chester, MetroHomes, Homegates Realty, MegaHarta, ReMax Malaysia, and some of the local Reapfield offices.
