(SEATTLE, Wash.) – Feb. 27, 2007 – For the first time ever, Luxury Real Estate has expanded into the Middle East market. It recently released its newest global division, LuxuryRealEstate.com/middleeast, increasing the company’s global network of the best real estate brokers in the world. Brokers of luxurious properties in the Middle East have recently enjoyed more success with the development of Dubai, United Arab Emirates as a magnet for business in the region. As the global market for luxury homes continues to expand into new locations, LuxuryRealEstate.com offers an essential resource to connect buyers and sellers internationally. James Magee and Paul McGrath, directors of Luxury Real Estate, Middle East and Egypt, and LuxuryRealEstate.com are working together to capitalize on the fastest-growing market that blends ultra-modern living with strong traditions and heritage. LuxuryRealEstate.com/middleeast has member brokers who specialize in various locations, including the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. The spring 2007 issue of Luxury Real Estate Magazine will also include an 11-page section on Dubai and other Middle Eastern properties. Look for its release in April/May. LuxuryRealEstate.com/middleeast includes an interactive map of the Middle East and Egypt, a profile of each affiliate and a luxury property search with photos, virtual tours, maps, floor plans and a detailed property description.
