In this episode, we chat with Amit Kumar Agarwal, NoBroker.

NoBroker, as the name suggests eliminates the middle-man/broker most of us have to go through when we look out for our buy/rent a property.

NoBroker handles $2 billion worth of transactions on its platform every year and claims to have helped save brokerage worth Rs 1,100 crore last year.

During the podcast, Amit shares how he built NoBroker while facing troubles from local brokers and brought it into realization as a broker-free platform at a time when larger competitors like Housing.com and Commonfloor still had brokers on their platform.
