Blok's story started from our own experiences in the real estate market.
In January 2015 our CEO Rudi Skogman found his dream apartment. To afford the new apartment he had to sell his old flat. After some price negotiations the apartment was sold and the real estate broker cashed in a 7000 € commission. Afterwards Rudi started thinking if using a broker had been right choice after all. There had to be a better (and cheaper) way to sell apartments.
In the spring of 2016 Rudi got the idea of using technology to automate most of the selling process. Soon after that Juha, Samu and Olli joined. Things started to fall in place: What if we would let the owner arrange the viewings? What if bids could be made online? What if the apartment estimate would be done by an algorithm? What if the transaction cost was a bit more reasonable?
We set as our goal to create the best home sale experience in the world. By utilizing new technology we could speed up the whole process of selling your apartment, find the potential buyers more efficiently and keep the transaction cost at a reasonable level.
We have sold more than 2,000 apartments and helped our customers save more than 12 million euros in brokerage fees. Our service has been awarded as the best web service of the year. We are also Finland's most review broker on Google, representing the absolute top in customer satisfaction in the industry. We employ 32 people and operate in more than 30 locations in Finland and Sweden. According to our customers, the best thing about Blok is the high-quality workmanship, modern approach to things and our always available expert customer service.
