From being embroiled in controversies to becoming one of the leading companies in the real estate sector, this is the story of a remarkable turnaround!

In this edition of Founder Thesis, Akshay Datt speaks with Dhruv Agarwala, CEO, REA India Pte. Ltd., a company that has Housing.com, Proptiger.com and Makaan.com under its umbrella.

An alumnus of Harvard University, Dhruv started his entrepreneurial journey way back in 2006 with iTrust Financial Advisors which laid the foundation for his subsequent venture. In 2011, he started PropTiger.com, a one-stop real estate platform for homebuyers to search, shortlist and buy properties.

Since then, PropTiger has gone on to become a behemoth in the real estate sector by acquiring Housing.com, which today is the leading real-estate portal in India.
