How It Started
In 1983 two friends set out to build a wholly indigenous and professionally managed real estate firm. The early years of the firm were characterised by a lot of experimentation and young, brilliant and dedicated people who were open to learning and welcomed a challenge. Our young team quickly caught the vision of delivering an entirely new concept of real estate practice and ran with it with vigour. We built systems, honed our methodologies and challenged ourselves to always deliver the best results no matter the circumstance.
Integrity, professionalism and a solution-focused approach differentiated the Diya, Fatimilehin & Co. team and the market rewarded us for it. From Lagos to Kano to Port Harcourt and other major cities around Nigeria, one city at a time, our banners coloured cityscapes.
The original partnership has since been dissolved and we have embarked on a rebuild effort consistent with the original vision. We are building back better and stronger and look forward to scaling and expanding our operations over the next few years.
Powered by our expertise, geographic spread and local knowledge of host cities Diya, Fatimilehin & Co. has grown from a humble office in McNiel Street Yaba, Lagos to a full service real estate firm with 14 offices in 8 Nigerian cities, including 7 in Lagos, and an office in London. We are laser focused on our goal of having a presence in every major African city and to be one of the biggest real estate firms in the world.
