Meraqi is derived from a word "Meraki", a Greek verb/adverb. It means "when you do something with soul, creativity or love; putting a piece of yourself into what you do".
It's what we strive for at Meraqi — to provide high-quality service and advice to our clients. We put soul, creativity and love into finding the right investment fit for our clients. The Pursuit of Excellence is a non-negotiable tenet at MERAQI. Our people, processes and practices are indoctrinated in this ideology. Sincerity and integrity are indelible to our way of life. We strive to foster long-term client relationships. Client trust is our unabashed pursuit and prized asset.
We started our journey on January 16, 2017 with the idea of creating a private boutique advisory and transaction firm. Our emphasis was transparency and honesty in our business practice and these were two instruments of communication. This approach helped us to develop a trust with the Client to deliver unbiased and optimal solutions.
In 2019, we developed a technology platform: Yield Space (Yieldspace.com) to cater needs of private investments of HNIs/NRIs in rent yield assets (commercial and vacation homes) and growth yield assets (land and plots).
In 2022, we expanded our leasing services to a; before we were catering to commercial leasing in an opportunistic way.
In future we intend continue to be a boutique firm. This approach helps in establishing strong check & balances of our services. We provide high standards of services with having customer's need in mind.
We enhance property value for our customers. We want to be a leader in assisting owners, investors, and occupiers in developing efficient property portfolio aligned with their business objectives.
We achieve this by applying knowledge from different fields, by experts to develop the appropriate strategy and arranging resources for implementation.
Our Advisory, Due Diligence and Research Services assist our clients on decision making, product development, risk assessment, enhance property portfolio performance and provide industry & market intelligence.
Our transaction focused services assist our clients to arrange resources (partners, space, land, or capital) for real estate projects and acquisition and disposition of properties/ investments.

Most importantly, I have been amazed at your patience and a great sense of equilibrium towards both sides while we go through the process of negotiation. You have also been extraordinary in your research capacity which always helps to close any business deals.
