Nomad Homesa digital real estate platform designed to streamline buying and renting residential real estate, has launched its services in Dubai.

Set to transform one of the Emirate’s largest industries, Nomad claims to be the first technology platform to exclusively serve buyers and renters – a key differentiator from traditional brokerages and portals.  A further differentiator is the company’s technology-first approach: Home seekers are equipped with search tools, virtual tours, digital document signing and more, all of which are aimed at providing customers with an online experience from start to finish.

The company partners with local real estate brokerages to provide a growing inventory of unique, curated properties. Nomad’s machine learning algorithm then uses each customer’s unique requirements to suggest homes on its platform along with available matches throughout Dubai. All properties are carefully reviewed for quality and accuracy to prevent any fake or duplicate information.

Nomad Co-FoundersNomad is co-founded by Helen Chen, a former investor from Blackstone and Goldman Sachs, who left Stanford’s MBA program to co-found Nomad. Speaking about the decision to launch the company in Dubai, Chen explains: “Dubai is one of the fastest-growing tech hubs in the world with a massive real estate market – representing over $60 billion in transactions every year. Our team’s experience across Silicon Valley, Wall Street and Dubai has shown us the power of technology. We saw the opportunity to digitize the buying and renting experience.”

While Nomad’s mission is to bring real estate online, the company recognizes that a human touch can still make all the difference. Each customer is matched with a dedicated Nomad Advisor to provide a hassle-free, concierge experience. The Nomad Advisor becomes a customer’s single point of contact, removing the need to schedule and coordinate with multiple real estate agents. Nomad Advisors and the online tools the company provides come at no additional cost to what customers normally pay.

“In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no better time to introduce a fully digital experience to find your home. We’re reinventing the entire journey for our customers and are 100% dedicated to making the experience the way it should be – online, seamless, and enjoyable.”
