The Outstanding Agent Award goes to… Mazen Abou Alfa from MD Real Estate in Abu Dhabi — June 2019

Mazen Abou Alfa‘s first priority is to select the best option that matches his clients’ needs. Discover how it helps him close deals at MD Real Estate.

Congratulations! Tell our audience about your latest achievement, which is the reason why you won this month’s Outstanding Agent Award for Abu Dhabi.

My latest achievements were to negotiate a selling value of AED 6.4 million and a leasing value of AED 315,000 at Hidd Al Saadiyat. Moreover, since May, I have closed three separate rental deals for a total value of AED 1,130,000.

Tell our audience THREE things that set you apart from other agents? Why should they give YOU a call when looking for a property in Abu Dhabi?

Understanding customer needs is crucial before starting any sales or leasing transactions. Options are many. So, to land on the best possible pick for our customers, we need to do three key things:

  • Transparency with the customer at all levels, mainly revolving around property details, starting from specifications to pricing.
  • Detailed knowledge presented to customers on the properties available, enabling them to easily decide and have full reassurance on the way to go ahead.
  • Working side by side with customers to land on the best possible price that suits his/her budget and still be acceptable for the landlord. Pleasing all parties is ideal.

What is the ONE piece of advice you’d give to agents who are new in the market, or are struggling to close their deals?

It is very important to understand the customer requirements very well at the first stage, mainly the maximum price he/she is willing to go for. This would help the agent to filter the properties available and be more focused to seal the deal.

How long have you been using Property Finder? What are the THREE key benefits you see from being Property Finder’s client? How do you use them to your advantage as an agent?

I have been using Property Finder for the last eight months. The three benefits are:

  • My properties’ exposure on a popular real estate platform.
  • The structure in which my properties are displayed helps them to stand out.
  • The platform shows how active I am in any specific area chosen.

What does winning the Outstanding Agent Award mean to you? Why would you recommend others to enter?

It is an honour for me to receive the Outstanding Agent Award from Property Finder, especially because it’s the most renowned real estate platform in this industry, well-respected and certified. Any agent who would like to enhance his profile should aim to get more certifications so that he stands out in this busy industry.
