Meet our experts
Working with a real estate broker will help you find your home in a competitive market and negotiate the terms of the lease with your landlord. Your broker should be RERA qualified and should be an expert in the local market.

Once you have found your dream property, you are ready to make an offer. At the point of offer, you will be asked to provide your Emirates ID, and to sign the relevant cheques.
Your broker will draw up a comprehensive, legally binding agreement on the Unified Ejari Contract.
Once all parties have signed and cheques have cleared, you will receive the keys.
