Experience and Knowledge

Mr. Abdelrehim stated that a professional real estate agent should know everything about the real estate market in Dubai. He must keep up to date with the latest topics and news in real estate and in the local market so that he can provide efficient services to clients.

He advises people to choose a real estate agent who is specialized in the area that they are looking for. The real estate agent should have extensive knowledge about the available properties in many areas so that he can help the buyer choose the best property that matches his needs. He can also narrow down the properties based on the client’s needs, like being close to schools or away from busy streets, and can help the seller by pricing the home correctly and by attracting the buyers.

Working with a Credible and Known Company

Buying and selling a house is a big deal and an important decision. That is why you must choose a real estate agent that you can trust and depend on. Focus on choosing an agent who works with a known and credible company that has a good reputation in the market and would be recommended by your family and friends.

Marketing Skills

A professional agent should have the ability to market his business. Through the specialized tools and materials provided by the brand he is associated with, the agent will be able to create social media ads, list the client’s property, and market his home. These tools simplify his workload, increase his productivity, and organize his workflow.

Mr. Abdelrehim added that these tools will help the agent in marketing the property to the right buyer and attract buyers from all over the world.

Negotiation Skills and Active Listening Skills

We all know that in the real estate market, the seller always wants the highest price for the property, and the buyer always wants the lowest price for the property he wants to buy. A professional real estate agent’s role is to arrive at the best deal for both parties and to make them satisfied.

Active listening skills are also important. The real estate agent should listen to the client’s demands very carefully and pay close attention to the details and be attentive to the unique needs of the clients.

Property Valuation

The agent should be able to provide an accurate valuation for the property according to the market conditions and the economic and social trends. He can help the seller to sell the property quickly without taking the risk of overpricing or underpricing the property.

Problem-Solution Skills

Buying and selling houses is not that easy. Sometimes you go through a lot of challenges. For instance, you may want to buy a house at a specific time or to sell a house quickly at a certain price. You may also face challenges in terms of the legal papers, documents, the contract, and the deal. Therefore, you have to choose a real estate agent who is able to solve all your problems and lighten your burdens.

Engaging Personality

Professional real estate agents not only sell properties but also sell themselves. It is important for them to show their real personality to the clients and make them feel that they have confidence in their abilities, have a good attitude, and are interested in helping others.

Good Reputation

A good reputation is a key to the agent’s success. Clients always choose real estate agents who are respectable, honest, and provide excellent customer service.

If you want to choose a well-reputed agent, you can get referrals from family and friends. Ask people if they can recommend a professional and well-reputed real estate agent with whom they have a good experience.

You may make an interview with the agent to know his behavior, style, and experience. Ask him how long he has been a real estate agent in the market, How many clients he has, and how many homes he has sold in the past few years. Make an interview with at least three agents before making the final decision and choosing the best agent.


In today’s real estate market, the right real estate agent really makes a difference. You need someone who knows the market well, guides you to the right property for the right price and solves all the problems you face.
