A PASSION FOR PROPERTY!

I am proud to lead, represent and be a part of the highly successful enterprise that Harbor Real Estate is today.

If there is one ingredient that is essential for success, that ingredient is passion. Without passion, you cannot be successful in this business. Harbor Real Estate has accumulated and developed a passionate group of professionals, and I believe our clients recognize this. This is a people’s business, and without such a passionate and professional team, there is no doubt that Harbor would not be where it is today.

Experience is essential, particularly as we are in a business characterized by high capital requirements, a broad spectrum of risks and deep emotional involvement where failure is never an option.

The executive team at Harbor has over 20 years of experience in the Dubai real estate market. As we all know, the industry has been evolving rapidly and still remains as one of the most dynamic in the world. As the Global Financial Crisis showed us, this is not an industry for those who don’t know what they are doing.

A culture of Innovation is what separates Harbor from the pack. Tried and true practices that worked in the past have required an overhaul in order to address new realities, and to create and maintain a competitive edge for Harbor. This is what really differentiates us from the rest.

We have learnt that being flexible and developing the capability to adapt quickly is critical, particularly in a market that is changing so rapidly. The Global Financial Crisis was a period of wildly changing circumstances which bore unprecedented challenges requiring immediate yet innovative solutions. This was a difficult period but one of great learning, and which put us in a strong position to capitalize on the opportunities that continue to emerge with the recovery.

If you look at the industry today and compare it to the days of 2008, it has come a long way. The advances made in the legal framework, regulatory infrastructure and overall governance typifies a market that is rapidly heading towards full maturation, and the type of sustainable profitable growth that all stakeholders in the industry have been seeking.

As professionals who care about this industry, we will continue to embrace and support any change that will improve the health of our industry.
