More online shopping firms continue reforms, ToLet.com.ng now PropertyPro.ng

Barely less than one week after Yudala merged with Konga which it earlier acquired in the year, formally ToLet.com.ng, Nigeria’s leading online property classifieds portal has changed its name to PropertyPro.ng to widen business activities.

The change in nomenclature came barely six months after it bought over Jumia House (Lamudi).

Business Hilights recalls that PropertyPro.ng is a property search website powered by the consolidation of ToLet.com.ng and the Jumia House Nigeria website which was acquired by ToLet.com.ng in October 2017.

The company said the name change reflects the company’s broader commitment and its expertise in driving the innovations needed to shape the future of real-estate search solutions.

In his remarks on the name change, Co-founder and CEO of PropertyPro.ng, Fikayo Ogundipe observed that the name change reflects the company’s broader commitment and its expertise in driving the innovations needed to shape the future of real-estate search solutions.

Explaining more, the Chief Business Officer and Co-founder, Sulaiman Balogun said “Our name change today allows us to emphasize our wide-ranging business objective around continually improving  the way property search is conducted from the view of both real estate professionals and the general public, with the goal of increasing access and improving service delivery. The new name is effective immediately and will be implemented across the company’s product offerings. Our brand ethos has always been built on trust, credibility and industry knowledge – that’s what kept our business growing successfully over the last 5 years, and the PropertyPro brand promises to deliver on this same terms.”

On the new website, the Chief Technical Officer and Co-founder, Oluwaseyi Ayeni said, “the new PropertyPro.ng platform is ready for use via an android app but still accessible on desktop and mobile.”

Designed with simplified user experience, another Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Oladapo Eludire said “Real estate agents and property developers who list on PropertyPro.ng will now have their listings displayed in the best manner yet. Each listing will contain more relevant and clearer information that will assist end users in making better decisions”.
