After graduation in 2007, Simon started his career as an industrial engineer with a steady job in the financial sector, and shifted to real estate after making an impulsive investment during the height of the financial crisis. During this time,  Simon realized that to weather the storm and preserve his equity, he would need to understand how real estate worked. While learning to deal with floods, pests, tenant complaints and a host of other property management issues, Simon realize there was a gap in the market that could be solved with a more integrated real estate service offering for investors.
