In 2008, Alex Nicolas and Siddrath Singh founded JRD in UAE, a technology enterprise that would transform how the region went about real estate. JRD helps hundreds of brokers, agents, and real estate professionals shift from relying on pen and paper to using sophisticated yet easy-to-use CRM technologies.
JRD initially started with a B2B business model with PropSpace, a technology that allowed real estate professionals in UAE to manage their day-today business activities and operated as a marketing module that aided in distributing property information across a variety of different channels.
After years of dominating the sector, JRD added their B2C model, JustProperty, offering an advanced and universally accessible search experience, spanning both commercial and residential properties for sale and rent.
In early 2015, iMENA invested in JRD Group. With the help of iMENA, JRD managed to scale the operations regionally and build an in-house business intelligence unit that helped in optimizing the growing marketing efforts and the geographic expansion to achieve JRD Group's objectives.
Early 2019, JRD Group went on to become part of Property Finder.
