It was founded in 2006 and has since revolutionised the real estate industry of Pakistan by connecting buyers and sellers online in a highly convenient way, making it a household name among Pakistanis around the world. With over 550,000 new listings each month, and over 5.5 million monthly users, it is the pioneering property portal of Pakistan, with more than 15,000 agencies registered.
Zameen.com was the brainchild of two British-Pakistani entrepreneur brothers, Zeeshan Ali Khan and Imran Ali Khan. Their mission was to make Pakistani real estate accessible and convenient for everyone. Together, they proceeded to lead Zameen.com from a small start-up to the premier real estate entity of Pakistan.
Zameen.com started its funding first round in 2012 which constituted of several angel investors and substantial investment from venture capital firms. A further two rounds of major investment were closed in late 2015 and early 2016, bringing in a total of $29 million.
Then, in 2019, Zameen.com’s parent company, the Emerging Markets Property Group (EMPG) raised $100 million. This round was led by KCK Group, with Exor Seeds, a highly distinguished company, participating.
Zameen.com has since grown from strength to strength, with over 3,000 employees and presence in over 30 cities around Pakistan, and offices in 25.
