Dubai, UAE – Knight Frank Middle East today announces a major expansion of its operations in the Dubai residential real estate market as it targets to become the Emirate’s leading luxury real estate firm, by offering clients a true value-add and an unrivalled sales portfolio of luxury ultra-prime homes.

The Dubai Residential team will be spearheaded by Andrew Cummings, a well-known senior figure in Dubai’s real estate sector with an impressive number of record transaction’s including overseeing the sale of two 100m+ properties, which at the time, were the second and third highest sales in Dubai residential market history and the most expensive residential lease in Dubai in 2020, as well as the most expensive Emirates Hills sale back in 2019. As one of Dubai’s most successful brokers, Andrew was also awarded ‘Best Quality Broker in Dubai for 2020’ and was twice winner of ‘Outstanding Agent of the Month’ by PropertyFinder.

Andrew Cummings – Partner, Head of Prime Residential Sales at Knight Frank Middle East commented “I am delighted to be joining Knight Frank to lead their expansion into Dubai’s residential market.

With Dubai’s property market roaring back to life and seeing record growth in 2021, now is absolutely the time to capitalise on this momentum to offer both buyers and sellers an unrivalled world class experience.”
