Customer first, technology first approach
Nomad is elevating the customer experience the Middle East by using a customer first and technology first approach to update and elevate the buying, selling and renting process. It is a new concept combining cutting edge tech, highly trained agents and quality verified listings to provide customers with a new way to experience finding or selling a home. In two words, we help you buy or sell a home!
A win-win-win for buyers, sellers, and agents
Finding a home is one of the most important decisions in your life. So you would expect the process, whether you are buying or renting, to be flawless. Unfortunately, this often isn’t the case due to a mixture of inaccurate listings, low quality information and generally a poor overall customer experience.
We at Nomad use technology to improve the customer experience as it it enables us to ensure it is seamless from beginning to end. Equipping top agents with best-in-class tools optimizes the way that agents work. It’s a win-win-win for buyers, sellers, and agents.
In the space of two months we have built a team of six highly accomplished individuals, secured our first office space and we are now focused on public launch in early 2020.
We’re currently gearing up for launch in early 2020 and have plans to expand to other countries across the region throughout the coming year.
