In 2013, the concept of Condoville was but a dream in the eye's of Shaminder Gogna and Jasneet Gogna on their honeymoon in Hawaii. Originally, Condoville was planned to be an online portal for pre-construction and resale condominium listings. At the time, Shaminder Gogna, Founding President, was managing 100 sales representatives that primarily sold residential resale homes across the Greater Toronto Area. In the news, real estate ‘Gurus’ across the globe identified Toronto’s condominium market as a threat to the Canadian economy given an oversupply of pre-construction sites. At the same time in the market, new construction condominium sales were surging with double digit annual price growth.
After completing his MBA, Shaminder decided to research condominium markets across major global urban cities to gain a deeper understanding of high density market dynamics. Condoville slowly began to develop into an online platform that provided market insight in addition to market information and historical sales data.
“In general, many felt the concept of Condoville was outrageous. Some disliked the name because it was too specific. Fellow industry professionals suggested we be content with our current sales success and allow the larger companies to deal with developers and builders. We didn't have any personal relationships to leverage but inherently understood a higher level of service in a concentrated market would reap rewards.” - Shaminder Gogna
In June 2015, Mitchell Coburn, Director of Marketing and Sales, joined the team. Mitchell's approach to marketing, design vision and passion to incorporate technology into the real estate transaction elevated Condoville to another level. Originally, when Mitchell came on board, Condoville’s presence in the market was shaping into a lifestyle blog with preliminary brand concepts starting to take shape.
“Looking back, we always knew what we didn’t want to be. The two of us were really passionate about create a better sales experience online and in person. We had to visualize, execute and evolve several times to establish a presence in marketplace. It took us a couple of years to create our purpose and another year to create our identity. To this day, we're still evolving and probably will continue to evolve for years to come.” - Mitchell Coburn
Between 2015 and 2016, Condoville selected a handful of pre-construction sites to market and sell. Between Shaminder’s sales management experience and Mitchell’s design capabilities, the duo became a marketing group that experienced great success via creating pre-construction condo or home microsites and advertising. At the time, Shaminder was working with his parents, Amrik Gogna & Riki Gogna, who both had decades of real estate sales experience. Between 2014 and 2017, the team rebranded its brokerage, gained access to more than 1,000 real estate professionals, and drastically increased sales volume in excess of $30M by working exclusively with Home Builders and Condominium Developers. Shaminder's experience directly working with Builders and Developers provided invaluable exposure that would elevate Condoville to the next level.
In Fall of 2017, Shaminder and Jasneet launched Condoville Realty Inc. With expansion in mind, Sumeet Banwait, Director of Operations, joined the executive team to provide legal counsel and establish corporate policies from his previous corporate experience. Practicing his knowledge of real estate and contract law, Sumeet works to protect Condoville, its clients and developers alike. Soon after, Hassib Bawari joined the Brokerage Services team as Sales Manager. Hassib's extensive knowledge in the residential resale market has proved beneficial to all Condoville members and most importantly Condoville clients.
Condoville expanded the executive team yet again in Fall 2019 by securing Rahmat Bawari, Director of Finance. Rahmat's passion for financial analysis and keen eye for micro and macro economic trends has propelled Condoville forward as an industry leader to assist land owners, developers and builders.
Today, Condoville continues to evolve as a niche service provider in the real estate development marketplace as team members upgrade their knowledge via formal education and experience. This year, Condoville Developments was created to rethink urban living specifically targeted to Millennials and Gen Zs. As both generations attempt to navigate through the real estate market with little to no ownership opportunities, Condoville Developments is actively designing new concepts of space and living.
