Since we launched 12 years ago, we have sought to promote best practices in the real estate industry in order to help consumers find the right property from the most relevant and leading real estate professionals. We’ve achieved this by introducing industry-leading initiatives, such as Verified Listings, Agent specific searches, and a Quality Control department that monitors agent conduct, among other practices.
Last week, we honoured the real estate elite at our fifth annual Property Finder Real Estate Awards ceremony and gala dinner, gathering 400 peers at the Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa. The evening is the premier event for industry professionals, celebrating top brokers, real estate companies and projects, and awarding the breakout stars of 2018.
“With real estate being one of, if not the, leading industry in Dubai, we are very happy to hold the wealth of knowledge and experience, to be able to crown the winners in these key categories,” says Lukman Hajje, Property Finder CCO and Head Judge.
‘’The judging panel analysed data from the 1st of January this year, met countless times, attended site visits, reached out to consumers, and tooth combed every bit of data and evidence, to be able to award the winners their deserved titles.’’
Our sought-after Awards push the industry forward, in its pursuit of continued best practices and a transparent real estate industry,” Hajje concluded.
