Are you looking to buy or sell something? Our neighbor Adham can certainly help through his new online venture EZ Heights.
The company tagline is ‘Making it EZ for you to Browse, Click, Buy.’ As a social market place, EZ Heights is a classifieds website with a difference. The site aims to make it easier to post your ads and communicate with potential buyers across all types of social media. The team is also keen to ensure the ads are authentic. All new advertisements are manually approved for quality control of the ads on the website. With over 200,000 listing on the site, this makes for a lot of work.
Among the useful features is the website ‘chat’ to help buyers and sellers communicate more efficiently without any phone calls. Another nifty add-on is the Whatsapp integration were you can share ads via Whatsapp as well as chat to buyers and sellers directly. As part of the EZ Heights community, you can review ads as well as update your status (looking for, need help with, etc). See things you like from a regular poster? It is possible to ‘follow’ users so that you stay updated with their latest posts and products or services. “We integrated these social elements to make communication more efficient and more fun,” Adham explained. I think that EZ Heights should be a good alternative to posting about furniture, cars and villas for sale on the various JVT Facebook groups!
“I started this business because I saw a lack of quality classifieds websites in the UAE. The existing portals usually concentrate on quantity rather than quality,” says Adham. “We concentrate on both but mainly quality which is why we manually approve our ads.” He tells me that the actually the idea stems from his childhood when he would accompany his father to the Deira fish market. Seeing the exchange between people buying, selling and negotiating inspired him to “take the traditional market experience and modernize it online.”
Born and raised in Dubai, Adham moved to our community over this summer. “JVT is such a beautiful and quiet community, and since I started socializing a little with the people living here I found out that this is a nice and supportive community,” he remarks. “They even helped me find my lost cat (his name is cat) recently!” It is free to post an ad, but Adham will offer JVT residents with their own businesses up to 20% discount to purchase site banners. Just mention the JVT Community Blog when asking for this special privilege!
