Blok is a Finnish online real estate broker, founded in 2017[1].

By utilizing automation and artificial intelligence the company claims it can offer a more cost-efficient broker service.[2]

Compared to traditional brokers the home-owner arranges the viewing of the apartment while the company sells the apartment through its online platform, which takes care of tasks such as valuation, photographing, marketing, bidding and handling of documents all the way to key handover. [2]

The company sold some 70 apartments in its first operating year 2017[3].

Blok was founded by former Slushers in January 2017 by Rudi Skogman, Samu Hautala, Juha Jokela and Olli Gunst[1].

Blok was chosen among the top 100 European startups in 2017 by Wired magazine [1].
