Q&A with Shanze

Why do you deserve to be a Propertyfinder Outstanding Agent?
I love what I do very much, I was actually born and raised here in Dubai. No one really has a plan, I didn’t dream of working in property when I was a little girl, I just wanted to be happy and find something I really love. I joined Espace in 2011 and haven’t looked back since, I am one of the most successful agents in the office, always in early ready to work and I never miss an appointment. I believe my ethics stem from my success. My days and my nights are consumed with my job, I am certainly one of these people who eats, breathes, lives their job and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Espace is a very textbook company and this is why I enjoy working for such a dynamic, structured company where customer satisfaction is paramount. To win in this game you really have to love what you do, everything about real estate is me and it helps I work alongside such amazing people at Espace. I call them family.
