OUR FOUNDING STORY

Our Founders

Back in 2006, Steve Melhuish and Jani Rautiainen were each trying to find a new home in Singapore. Spending hours going through the available sources for property choices and up-to-date pricing information only left them feeling further from the goal. They soon learnt that other property seekers were facing the same challenges and decided to do something about it. And so, PropertyGuru was born.
