With the successful launch of Monest, real estate agents in Pune sound thrilled. As the newest platform to search properties has put agents in focus, property agents have joined the portal and also encouraged fellow professionals to do the same.
Echoing the sentiment of the agent community, Mr. Mohit Sancheti, co-founder, Monest.com explains, “The need to recognise the role of agents was long overdue and the success of our portal in a market saturated with property websites is a spontaneous response to our reform-oriented approach.”
In the same vein, he adds, “At the core is our concern to serve the interests of home buyers without bypassing agents. Monest caters to home buyers as well as agents.”
This perfect balance has been achieved by addressing the prime needs of both categories of users. Agents need business and buyers need genuine agents. Once you log on to Monest, you find verified agents and they get to network for business growth, convert more leads into successful deals.
Searching properties in Pune has become easier and users are happy with the fundamental shift in perception and the easy availability of certified agents.
Mr. Shanti Lal, the owner of a leading property firm in Pune, lavishes praise on the Monest initiative to usher change in a market ruined by dubious agents who make it difficult for the honest operators. “Potential clients at least know we are genuine and they trust us. My enquiries have increased in the last two months,” Mr. Lal concludes with conviction.
Home-buyers have positive experiences to share. Mr. Naveen Kishore, a young software professional, feels Monest has ended the woes of people like him who come to work in Pune.
“Monest offers relief for people like us who do not have the time to search for properties and conduct a thorough background check of agents. We need an agent who does the job sincerely. Also, he should offer services like advice, documentation, and verification as we are busy professionals who cannot run from one office to another to get things done,” clarifies Mr. Kishore, who has recently moved into a new rented home.
Real estate agents have switched to the newest platform to do business. Home buyers find it safer to hire an agent after going through client reviews and performance ratings. They offer the best and ensure quality services to clients as the transparency model affects their business prospects.
“An agent cannot be casual anymore. One unhappy client can post a negative review and our business gets adverse impact immediately. It is important to keep clients satisfied, and we are finding new ways to do so. Monest has made us grow into better professionals,” elucidates Mr. Mohan Desai, a real estate broker who has just joined the network on hearing the buzz about how buyers are flocking to this platform to search for properties in Pune.
The founders are upbeat that this is going to be replicated in other parts of the country. “We are monitoring the response and trying to align ourselves with buyer needs. Monest has generated trust in buyers and they feel safe to interact with agents on this platform. To make them revise perception and feel the need to get an agent is our biggest achievement so far,” signs off Mr. Mohit Sancheti with an air of finality.
