Dezrez was founded in 2000 by two friends with the original idea to become a property portal. This was before the name "portal" had even been coined! It turned out that we were not the only ones with this idea and when Asserta and Rightmove arrived with multi million pound funding we knew we were up against it. To compete, we added value to our offering by giving our customers tools that helped them run their office. It wasn't long before we realised that our talent lay in providing tools for estate agents. By listening to our agents and continuing to work with them on the development of our product, we became the first online estate agency software provider.
