Estateya’s “Real Estate City” Story

First, we were nominated.  The Nadlan City Conference is the largest real estate conference in all of Israel, attracting newspaper coverage, investors, agents, and personnel in the high-tech, real estate, and construction sectors from around the world. Imagine our pride when we made it to the finals for the Nadlan City Competition on Real Estate Tech Startups.


Then our team arrived at the conference. We headed out for Eilat, the beautiful resort city in Israel where the conference is held each year, and arrived just in time for the 3-day event. All the energy and excitement amongst the nearly 2000 attendees was palpable and encouraging.

Then we gave our presentation. Of course, we talked about what Estateya is and what it offers, how it is unique as an online real estate site, how it has a global reach, and about its special features, but we also talked about one of our founding members, Itamar Elkayam, whom we sadly lost this year, but who was so much on our minds and so much a part of Estateya’s growth and development and success. It was and is important to the Estateya team that we remember and honor him. This was just one small way for us to do so.

And then… we WON! Yes! We won! Out of 7 nominees, Estateya won the award for most promising real estate startup technology site! Of course, we’re thrilled and excited about this huge win. In addition to the recognition this award grants us, it also entitles us to all different kinds of invaluable support and privileges that we can’t wait to put to good use. So, feel free to visit us and watch us grow. And more importantly, grow with us when you invest, simply.
