Sisters Rhonda Wong (CEO) and Race Wong (CPO) co-founded Ohmyhome in 2015. They started Ohmyhome when they realised that the industry average time taken to sell a property in Singapore ranges between 3-7 months and the transaction journey often causes stress within the family.
The problems include a lack of transparency, knowledge, the lengthy time it takes, the stress and the high costs involved. Hence, they tapped on their experiences in the real estate industry and developed Ohmyhome.

Ohmyhome Regional Headquarters: Singapore’s First-ever PropTech Innovation Centre
We have officially announced the opening of the Singapore’s first-ever PropTech Innovation Centre in June 2019.
The 11,000-square-foot facility will accelerate continuous innovation and productivity, as we expand into other markets in the region.
The centre, located in Toa Payoh will double up as our regional headquarters and will boast a data and research facility, hot-desking spots for their in-house agents and a public seminar chamber, where property literacy programmes will be conducted.
Each of its nine zones will specialise in key areas and collaborations, much like a home with different rooms. The zones will also include three main spaces – a Moonshot Room, a Grass Room and a Happiness Room, catered for different purposes.
Dubbed the ‘technology space’, the Moonshot room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling whiteboard walls and video conferencing tools, which will aid in the cross-functional collaboration between the company’s offices around the region. Its goal, will be to translate concepts into prototypes, to further improve and launch new product features.
Contrastingly, the Green Room, features grass on every surface of the space and is sound insulated, which allows for a sense of calmness and serenity. The state of ‘silence’ seeks to provide the team, with a facility that is out of the ordinary, to aid greater inspiration for out-of-the-box ideas.
Finally, the Happiness Room, has fixtures and furniture that are unorthodox, and is primarily used for the exchange of ideas and conversations, in a casual and relaxed setting.
In line with the company’s plan to expand our presence in the region, the innovation centre will have a resident team of 50 people which will include emerging technologists, user experience designers, a regional expansion team and their in-house agents. We also plan to increase our regional headcount in the next year, as we aggressively scale our operations in Singapore and beyond.
Ohmyhome Regional Headquarters is located at 11 Lorong 3 Toa Payoh, Block B #04-17, Jackson Square, Singapore 319579.
