Anza.co.ke is a real estate search portal promising to to dramatically change the real estate sector in Kenya by being the go to online portal for home searchers by home buyers, property owners, tenants and agents nationwide as well as in the diaspora.
Real estate agents and property owners list their property on the site without a fee. The startup believes what makes it stand out is its agent recommendation section and directory of service providers like relocation services, painters, security firms, interior designers and plumbers. For security, the section ensures clients get trusted service providers especially artisans like painters and interior designers.
The portal promises easy management of property listings, analysis of market trends and developments as well as a platform to interact with potential clients through Q&A and blogs for new business opportunities. It also facilitates the sale and renting of residential and commercial property as well as land.
The portal has advanced real estate search functionality across the country especially in major cities and suburbs or estates in Nairobi. It also has location-based property search for property so users can search for property in their neighborhoods. Anza also offers optional paid 360º virtual tours of properties.
