As the scope and dynamism of the Indian real estate market continue to rapidly expand and progress, there is one visionary who has the capacity to completely revolutionize this industry. RealBetter's co-founder, Gaurev Kapur left his family business behind to launch a completely new venture, using all his savings and with the mission of “empowering the agents” and “disrupting the conventional manner of buying and selling of real estate in India,” has started a fascinating journey to create the first ever modern B2B tech marketplace in the Indian real estate industry.

The Genesis of a Vision

The start-up story of Gaurev Kapur was rooted from his awareness of the problems that affect the current structure of the real estate company back in India. While the current system lacked transparency and offered various inefficiencies in the process of buying and selling, the market was poised for disruption. Gaurev Kapur wanted to build a platform that would simplify the procedure, increase its transparency, and revolutionize the industry because he loved technology and wanted to help independent real estate agents, who currently have very few options for tools and offers.

To leave a family business is to leave something that has been built over many years; this can be a very tough call. However, due to the onset of stubbornness and a strong belief in what he wanted to achieve, the founder had to make a big shift and move to start his dream. As with all decisions made in the realm of law, this decision was not without its dangers. He invested all his money into the business with passion and commitment needed for the business to grow, as well as having faith in him, which ensured the creation of company culture in the future.

Building India's First Modern B2B Tech Marketplace

The real estate industry, particularly in India, has, until recent times, been fashionable with traditional approaches whereby a lot of activities were conducted using word of mouth. This platform was created and was intended with the view of effectively linking real estate agents, real estate developers and anyone interested in the business in as smooth and transparent a manner as is possible.

Key features of this B2B tech marketplace include:

  • Digital Listings and Transactions: Facilitating digital posting of properties by agents is a condition that guarantees effectiveness in relation to timely updates of information regarding properties and easy access to the potential clientele.
  • Advanced Search and Matching Algorithms: Developing complex search algorithms for the buyer-property relationship promises an improvement in the search process.
  • Analytics and Insights: Incorporating strategic inputs such as providing agents and developers meaningful data and information for decision-making, accurate pricing, and competitive intelligence.
