Brendan Blumer is an American tech entrepreneur based in Asia, founder and board member of OKAY.com. Brendan started his first venture at the age of 15 in the video game industry selling virtual assets inside MMORPG’s. His first venture, GaMeCLiFF, was purchased by Internet Gaming Entertainment (now IMI Exchange) and in 2005 IGE relocated him to Hong Kong upon finishing secondary education. At IGE, Brendan grew the account sales division to a highly profitable, 5m USD per annum business. After two years at IGE, Brendan started a new venture called Accounts.net which became the world's largest game-account selling website with nearly 1m USD in monthly revenue in its first 3 months of operations.
In 2008, Brendan founded Okay.com in Hong Kong to build real estate enterprise software for use by real estate agents. The in-house software platform combines a proprietary CRM and Property Database to support an entirely mobile virtual office for real estate agents in Asia. Okay.com combined forces in 2011 with the real estate division of Asia Pacific Properties, an established leader in residential brokerage with over 25 years in Hong Kong. As of 2014, Okay.com is well-known as the most technologically advanced agency in the space and is one of the fastest growing brokerages in the Hong Kong market.
