Online PR News – 01-July-2013 – Bangalore/Karnataka –, one of the most transparent real estate portals in Bangalore was recently presented with an Excellence in Realty Award in the Blockbuster Business- Real Estate Eco-system Marketing Campaign category at the Great Indian Marketing Summit - Realty Edition award ceremony.

The trophies were presented to winners during a gala ceremony on Friday, June 21, at the Leela Palace in Bangalore. More than 100 dignitaries from the real estate fraternity attended the event.

Commenting on the recognition, Sunder P, CEO, HomeShikari said "It is an endorsement of our direct, plain speaking approach to marketing our core values i.e. building trust and championing transparency in the real estate market. We didn't try to hard sell anything or outdo anybody, but rather firmly focused on what consumers need or find lacking in the market, 'trust'. And we managed to do that with our consumers by never compromising on this single aspect, for any reason. The 'verified listings' brought back faith in online real estate listings. Our approach of 'Your prospect is your prospect and no one else's’ while ensuring customer privacy helped us gain trust with both consumers and the builder community.”

Award winners were selected by a jury of elite marketers including Bijou Kurien, President & CEO, Lifestyle at Reliance Retail, L K Gupta, CMO, RedBus, K Ramakrishnan, President & CMO, Cafe Coffee Day, Prof Abraham Koshy, IIM Ahmedabad, AmitGossain, EVP - Marketing & Business Development, JCB India and AkshayMehrotra, CMO, Big Bazaar
