The collaboration aims to make the mystique of the island lifestyle accessible, by providing island plots as well as facilitating the purchase of a complete range of premium holiday homes including beachfront mansions, suites, apartments, villas, floating villas, penthouses and island houses of character, all of them located in highly sought-after destinations, such as The World and its 300 islands, with entertainment, leisure, retail and dining facilities.
Honing in on first and second-time property buyers, the platform will help buyers access a wide range of verified listings through their worldwide network – matching affluent buyers with the most suitable sellers and highly coveted properties that are likely to sway their owners for a lifetime.
Offering a comprehensive range of services to customers, RE/MAX Island’s portfolio of up to 100 island premium properties spans island plots for investors and premium holiday homes suitable for both end-users and investors, alike.
Parisa Seif, Managing Director of RE/MAX Island added, “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.
Through the service, clients will be able to directly access exclusive island homes, allowing owners to experience ‘escapism’ and reconnect with a positive holiday mood. Therefore, even the smallest island holiday home will bring immense value to its owner. Owning an island premium holiday home generates a wealth of benefits for both private use and touristic rental and RE/MAX Island will represent
only properties with a high appreciation to guarantee the best investment as well as property management services, underpinning the company’s principle of ‘invest and indulge’.
Josef Kleindienst, the chairman of Kleindienst Group, says, “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 re-thought every aspect of their lives, including whether or not to invest in a second home.”
“Buyers of second homes are prioritising 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.”
“We are extremely pleased to bring this company to life with the help of the trusted RE/MAX brand. We are confident that this solution will bring value and transform the holiday home purchasing experience.”
This new initiative will not only add value to the top echelons, including top agents and developers, of the real estate market, but will also create jobs and attract new business to the UAE. Currently, RE/MAX Island is hiring Island Consultants, Senior Island Consultants and an Island Partner, and will also be tapping into a new network of investors to attract the right sales candidates to Dubai. Candidates can apply directly through www.remax-island.com.
The 135,000 RE/MAX agents worldwide will be made aware about the UAE and why Dubai property market is attractive, through online seminars and annual networking events in Dubai at Kleindienst marquee island development, The Heart of Europe, including free stays for the top selling agents.
Khaled Nasser, RE/MAX Regional Director of RE/MAX Egypt & 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.”
For agents, RE/MAX Island will provide a host of cutting-edge tools and technologies, and training that will give agents an advantage - thanks to its an agent-focused philosophy with high-commission concept.
Commenting on the new partnership and RE/MAX’s global growth, Shawna Gilbert, RE/MAX Vice President of Global Development says, “We’ve grown at a rapid pace globally because there is an unmet need for experienced sales partners and professionals around the world. This new partnership will allow us to continue to compete on a global level, building on the strong global foundations RE/MAX has developed.”
As a first-of-its-kind proposition in the region, RE/MAX Island seeks to transform the real estate market across the GCC and worldwide, underpinned by the proven success of two of the world’s most respected and trusted brokerage brands.
