Founding story

Here at 99 Group, we know a property is the single largest financial decision - and affects how people accumulate wealth, raise their children, or even plan for retirement. With that knowledge, ‘99.co’ was conceived during the 2008 United States mortgage subprime crisis, an event born out of desire and misinformation. That's why it's our goal to build the simplest and most trusted platform to help un-complicate the property journey and help the 99% find their way home.

Launched in 2014 by founders Darius Cheung, Yan Phun and Conor McLaughlin, 99.co distinguishes itself from other property search websites through its user-friendly design: features like price analysis data, finance planners, smart filters, and the ability to search by map or commute time, have ensured home buyers and renters have the best choices in the market at their fingertips.
