Sagar is the Senior Web Developer at Real Estate Tube and oversees the design and development of the web and database applications. He has previously worked for over 10 years in India and Thailand for global organisations such as Crown Logistics and Toyota Motors Asia Pacific.

Origin

The idea first came about when the founder, dealing with many interstate and overseas clients at the time, discovered that using videos really helped inform his clients. By simply using his mobile device to record short videos and sharing them to clients, he was able to give them the closest thing to a real life inspection instantly. Saving them time and unnecessary travel to decide whether the property suited them before shortlisting to arrange a formal inspection. The successes of this process resulted in the birth of Real Estate Tube.

It was incubated out of La Trobe University in collaboration with students from both Computer Sciences and Media & Communications faculties. Its Co-founder is Isaac Suter, an honours graduate in Computer Systems, who Steve identified as an ideal partner early on. Since then the company has grown to employ full time in-house designers and developers and grow its operations globally.

Our Head Office is situated in the Technology Enterprise Centre situated in La Trobe University of Melbourne.
