Our Story

The realty industry, seldom sees professionals from fields other than that of property development, taking charge of the business

Venkateswara Reddy, a creative scientist-cum-researcher, from IBM, India, decided he had had enough of falling prey to the ambiguity of the real estate industry, which resulted in a few unfortunate personal losses. Frustrated with the obscurity of legal procedures and documentation formalities, Venkat found himself delving deeper into the subject and its operating mechanisms.

It didn’t take long for him to realize that in an industry, infamously synonymous with risk and distrust, yet ironically known for its lucrative investment opportunities, there was an urgent need for someone trustworthy. Thus, by giving up his job at IBM, and laying the foundations to his entrepreneurial brainchild, Merusri Developers, Venkat decided it was time he filled the void of honest, real estate developers who don’t just build, but also educate, and are approachable and trustworthy.

This served to be the turning point in his career, as Venkat ultimately quit his job at IBM, and set out to lay the foundation to his entrepreneurial brainchild, Merusri Developers, to bring to fellow Indians, a happier real estate experience.

Venkat has patented close to 13 inventions in the field of computer science in addition to publishing around 15 research papers. He was presented the prestigious Invention Achievement Award by IBM, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the subject of computer science.
