Robert G. Schmidt

Robert is an entrepreneur with a passion for real estate. Throughout his career he has built businesses on the belief that the true asset of every company are its people. After his years in the real estate and finance industry he decided to move with his family to Dubai.

While he consulted two large real estate firms in strategy and global expansion, he discovered the gap between the real estate industry in general and smart technology.

He founded a real estate training institute together with the government and developed the idea of a real estate marketplace with the unique combination of people, education and technology. The aim is to help people realize their dreams, clients and agents alike.

By following his lifelong passion for traveling he discovered the massive inequality when it comes to education. In 2007 he eventually founded a non-profit organization to serve kids in their access to education.
