Built by buyers, for buyers

The idea for Proppy came to Ben during his own search for a home. Starting in Sydney, he experienced repeated disappointment that the lifestyle he was searching for seemed unobtainable. After 3 years of searching, he eventually found a place to call his own in Melbourne.

The struggle stuck with him, and he realised there had to be a better way to find property. Leveraging his data background, and after many nights of pouring over data Proppy was released to the public in December 2020.
