Red Herring Winner 201429 August 2014 - OKAY.com has been recognized by the prestigious Red Herring media company as one of the leading private ventures in Asia using technology to advance its industry.  
Red Herring’s Top 100 Asia list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors have been among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Rakuten, Salesforce.com, Xiaomi and YouTube would change the way we live and work. 
"I am thrilled to receive this award on behalf of the entire OKAY.com team." said Joshua Miller, OKAY.com CEO. "It is a real honor to join the ranks of companies such as LinkedIn, Zynga, Solazyme and other Red Herring 100 award winners that have gone on to become market leaders or create entirely new business models."
"The credit for this award goes to our entire technology team, real estate leadership, and the real estate professionals whose input has helped us get to where we are today.  It also goes to Brendan Blumer, the founder and technology entrepreneur who had the vision to create the company and technical expertise to bring that vision to fruition; to Hilary Cordell, a Hong Kong based real estate lawyer who saw the potential of the company at its inception and became a founding shareholder and investor; Kokuei Yuan, who co-founded the company with Brendan in 2005.” Joshua said.
“We recognized that there had to be a significantly better way of delivering real estate brokerage services to the market and have created a completely innovative platform to serve both professionals in the industry and their clients.  The company has gone from strength to strength and we are extremely excited about the next stage of our growth." Brendan commented.
