Powering real estate conversations

At askavenue, we believe people sell homes, not technology.

In 2015, co-founders Justin Shum and Rami Lulu were amongst 15 real estate tech startups selected to demo their product in front of 200+ industry executives at Realogy FWD. The pair of founders came away with the victory and claimed first place for their live chat messaging app for real estate websites, and thus askavenue was born.

Today askavenue is used by more than 6,500 real estate professionals worldwide, with a collective goal of delivering the best in-class consumer home search experience one conversation at a time.

We’re a small team with big ambitions
