Although the past three months have not been all ‘plain sailing’, as a company we have had plenty of wins, and the feeling is that we have captured some market share due to the pandemic and the inevitable struggles for many. Perhaps our biggest news of the last quarter was the delivery of the new flagship office. 8,000 sq.ft of contemporary space located in one of the most prestigious developments – The Gold & Diamond Park.
This colossal environment embodies everything we are aiming to do as a business… growth, consistent forward momentum and providing an exceptional platform for our brokers to be the best that they can be… not only this, but a tangible marker for new recruits looking to enter the business. We are one of the rare agencies in this market with true street presence, and certainly a leader in occupying one of the largest retail spaces to welcome clients.
We have had some of our strongest months ever in terms of gross revenue, had a whole plethora of brokers beating their own personal bests, had a handful of brokers reaching seniority status, as well as many more ‘day to day’ wins.

As a business we have (perhaps surprisingly due to the times) enjoyed some of our best months in Q3. We have had some of our strongest months ever in terms of gross revenue, had a whole plethora of brokers beating their own personal bests, had a handful of brokers reaching seniority status, as well as many more ‘day to day’ wins. Our Arabian Ranches sales team has enjoyed considerable success in stamping their authority on the local market with 24 sales transactions in the past 2.5 months – cementing our reputation as the go-to agency in the area. Our kiosk is manned 7 days a week and our team is on hand, whatever your property needs.
The Leasing team continues to grow in strength – led by our Leasing Director, Tom Poulson. We had our highest total number of transactions in a single week in September – ever! A sign (if any were needed) that people are willing, wanting and ready to find a new home in this market. With depth across the major expat areas of Dubai, we have you covered – no matter what type of property or budget you have.
We would like to officially welcome a large group of new starters that joined us in in August and September. Due to the restrictions in flights and the delays this brought to our onboarding process, we had over 30 new team members join us in these past two months. With some exceptional talent coming through the door, we are excited to see what this group can do. Although it is very early in their Dubai real estate career, we have seen some alarmingly good results with many already securing their first deals, and getting sensational testimonials from clients! We are blown away with both their ease of entering this tough market, and the kindness shown by our clients in their feedback. Thank you!
Lastly, in what is historically a very strong quarter (Q4) – I am excited to see what this capable team can do for the last three months of the year. Although prices remain soft, there are critical signs to be positive about the market. For many, 2020 has been a year to forget. However, for us we have learned to face challenges head-on, to adapt, be creative and most of all remained true to our values and goals as a business…Life always has ups and downs – it’s how you ride the roller-coaster that counts.
