Our Story

In November 2007, after six years in the London office, Asif Ghafoor relocated to Hong Kong with the Equities division of Goldman Sachs. When the time came to find his own residence, his experience searching for a place online was extremely frustrating.

The real estate websites available at the time were a jumbled mix of poor design, outdated listings, low quality pictures and very little information about the Hong Kong housing market overall, providing little value to the market participants.

Asif assumed someone else would surely find a solution but after years of waiting and seeing no improvement, he decided to step up himself and bring the Hong Kong online real estate market into the modern era.

In late 2013, after more than a decade in the banking industry, Asif left his career in finance behind him and started an online real estate company called Spacious.

Spacious was created with a simple and efficient concept:
Make the process of finding a place to live easier.

Spacious is determined to provide the best end-to-end online search experience. By combining superior user experience with powerful analytical tools and relevant content, Spacious makes the process of buying, renting or selling a property, simple and efficient.

Spacious is working with some of the biggest names in the real estate industry including Savills, Knight Frank, QFang, and other international clients.

By constantly striving to create the best experience for searchers, Spacious generates the best quality leads for our clients. Spacious also helps financial institutions manage risk related to real estate and helps them understand industry trends.
