Q&A With Karen Lorraine

Ewa: Welcome Karen, thank you for coming down to our headquarters in Dubai Media City! How long have you been in the industry and what area do you specialise in?
Karen: So I’ve been in real estate for about ten years. I started in Canada, and I’ve been in real estate in the UAE for five years. I’m a sales specialist in Al Hamra Village and Al Marjan Island, RAK.

Ewa: In your winning entry, Mark Richards who’s the Sales Director at Hunt & Harris, he nominated you for the award, he said that “you are never shy of working long hours and always available on evenings and weekends to assist clients”. Can you give us a specific example?
Karen: One of our overseas clients had a villa with a lot of difficulties surrounding it; it required a lot of extra time and effort outside of what we would normally do to get the sale through but we did get it through!

Ewa: Why do you think Ras Al Khaimah is a good place to buy or to invest?
Karen: I would say RAK is a good place to live and invest because of the attractions! The beaches, the mountains, the Guinness world record zip line and it’s just a laid-back resort style and community style community kind of living.

Ewa: If you could ask the Ministry of State for Happiness for just one thing, what would you request?
Karen: Well since I’m a mother of four children I understand what children need as far as development and recreation, I would ask the Ministry of Happiness for more parks and playgrounds and recreational centres with after-school programmes where they can learn things like swimming lessons, football, dance and all of those sorts of things.

Ewa: I can see that you’re super dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced so thank you so much for coming down and congratulations one more time for winning the award! I wish you all the success for the for the following months!
