A huge rental at AED 1,500,000 in Business Bay smashed Conor Mckay’s in-house monthly leasing record at haus & haus Real Estate with over AED 100,000 in commission.
Conor has always had a head for sales. He got his start at the age of nine, selling with his Grandad in the local market. His passion for sales grew from there and although he was turned down by two agencies back home because he was too young, haus & haus saw his potential and he’s only grown from there. Still the companies youngest agent, Conor has broken the all-time Leasing record in haus & haus Real Estate and is now ready for his next challenge.
"He is one of the most optimistic people I have met which is half of the battle in sales.” James Perry, Managing Director, haus & haus
Q&A with Conor
What do you think contributed to your success on this deal?
My background is in luxury property and I listen carefully to clients’ needs and stay available to answer any questions or work on a deal even out of office hours.
What is one thing you do as a broker that differentiates you from other brokers?
I refuse to give up. I always make a point to promptly answer clients calls at all times. This may seem like a simple thing to do, but it is often overlooked by many agents. It builds confidence in your clients and they feel well looked after. It is also important to show up on time, be organized, and look professional.
What do you think makes a good agent in the UAE?
Honesty. As simple as it sounds, real estate agents don’t have the best reputation, especially in the UAE, so being honest with your clients and not overpromising to them can establish a good working relationship.
