Real estate and property agents in Dubai

Real Estate and Property Agents in Dubai - best companies contact details, comments, and reviews. Also information and FAQs about buying and selling properties in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and UAE.

Real estate agents in Dubai operate much the same as anywhere else, and property descriptions suffer from the usual degree of artistic licence eg "needs work" means rebuild it after accidental demolition, "partial view" means you can see the swimming pool next door if you lean out while standing on the balcony railing - safety harness should be worn.

If you want to sound like you know what you're talking about, look for property reports from organisations like Better Homes, Colliers, Standard Chartered, EFG-Hermes, Nomura, Union Bank of Switzerland, etc. Good reading for background and statistics if you're considering a purchase (or a sale), but don't rely on them for market price forecasts. The property agent reports will usually talk the market up, and the investment bank type reports are usually overly optimistic, or give you bad news after the market has crashed and it's too late for you to pull out. After all, they have their own money to worry about so of course they'll buy or sell investments before they tell you whether it's a good idea or not, not after. Nomura reports come across as having a more realistic outlook than many of the others.

Some of the agents that are more established and/or well-known, dare we go so far as to say they have a good reputation? They'll say they are the best agents in Dubai of course:
