“The classifieds model is clear to us from deals with av.by (cars) and Myfin Group (financial services). We understand how our expertise and investments can help the company to improve the experience and customer base that they have accumulated during the company's operation”, -  said Victor Denisevich, Zubr Capital Investment Director. 

Realt.by was founded in 2005 on the basis of the citywide database of real estate agencies. The portal specializes in information on the sale, purchase and lease of real estate. The company is a leader in its field thanks to an extensive database of current ads uploaded by users.

Investments will be directed to the technological development of the platform, marketing and implementation of modern tools that will help sellers and buyers of real estate to make quick and secure transactions.

The second important aspect is strengthening the project team. Sergey Osipov, who has more than 20 years of experience in the Internet business, including the development of classifieds, will become a member of the company's Board of Directors. Osipov is a co-owner of Cian.ru (#1 classified for real estate in Russia, Forbes TOP-20 most expensive Russian Internet companies).
