18 April, SUBANG JAYA – Sime Darby Property today officially launched dto, Malaysia’s first experiential online platform based on co-creation and crowd-sourcing that is expected to transform the future of property buying.

dto is a result of a shift in mindset from building with our customers in mind to building with customers involved. It will allow Sime Darby Property to engage potential customers on their preferred development concept, design and amenities of a future property.

Sime Darby Property Chief Operating Officer, Dato’ Wan Hashimi Albakri said, “dto emphasises guiding potential customers in their journey towards owning a property, by giving them a say in the properties that Sime Darby Property is building today. The idea is to change the future of the property landscape through an engaging, empowering, educational and collaborative online platform that connects the developer and potential homebuyers.”

Property purchases are major investment decisions for consumers. In view of this, all options on the dto platform go through a stringent internal vetting process before being presented to customers for co-creation together with Sime Darby Property.

Recognising the importance of physical experiences, Sime Darby Property has also curated an exhibition where our customers can come see, touch and feel the finishes such as tiles, sanitary fittings and doorknobs before making their final decision for dto projects. This experience will be available at dto’s Official Primetime8 Launch Party on the 20th of April in SJCC Sales Gallery, Subang Jaya.

Sime Darby Property Chief Marketing & Sales Officer, Mr Gerard Yuen Yun Wei said, “dto is a home co-creation platform for all Malaysians. Whether you are a first time home buyer, newly-wed couple or even a seasoned investor, if you want to experience The Future of Property Buying, be a pioneer in disrupting the property industry and be able to have a say in what you want in your future home – dto is the place to be.”

Gerard added, “We build dto because we want to elevate the standards of living for all Malaysians as we truly believe that our homes and the way we live will be better if we all do get to have a say in it before buying it. We look forward to the day where Malaysian’s say, “Don’t buy that property if you haven’t dto-it’! A future where dto is synonymous with property buying.”
