Our Founding Story
In 2019, Jean-Michel Paul (CEO), Patrick Yan (CTO), and Jiajia Yao (Head Quant), co-founded Real Estate Analytics (REA) which aims to bring greater transparency, efficiency, and cost savings to the property market by using AI-driven technology.
But the story started much earlier. When JM was doing his PhD, he found that in the endless amount of information, data in real estate industry is far from being properly utilized. This directly caused the industry to suffer from various inefficiencies of costing, pricing, and manpower for years. After business success and thinking about real estate for many years, he returned to this challenge and came back to Singapore with the mature idea of solving it. Everything begins here.
