Parisa Seif, managing director of RE/MAX Island, said: “Following many years of experience in the industry, RE/MAX brings a wealth of expertise to the market and a fresh new approach to brokerage services in the UAE with a global influential network of leads and agents. We are delighted to forge this partnership with The Kleindienst Group and to add value to global real estate market attracting a selection of Dubai’s leading agents and supporting them on their journey to success.”
Josef Kleindienst, chairman of Kleindienst Group, said: “This venture follows a difficult time for the real estate market, as in many other industries. However, we are pleased to see that the demand for premium holiday homes and island properties has surged since COVID-19 as many people have rethought every aspect of their lives, including whether or not to invest in a second home.
“Buyers of second homes are prioritizing outdoor space, a home office for remote working situations and greater privacy post-lockdown. When it comes to motives, prospects are also more likely to seek a property clearly positioned as a secondary home with leisure amenities and ease of access, that can also be upgraded as the family’s temporary primary residence in case of a lockdown in the future.”
Khaled Nasser, RE/MAX regional director, Egypt and the UAE, credits the growth in the region in part to several important recent additions to the company’s value proposition. “We recently unveiled several new training programs, educational resources and enhancements to our technology suite so RE/MAX agents could leverage these unique competitive advantages to help them succeed in this incredibly dynamic market,” he said.
