Posted by Aneesha Rai — February 28, 2017
DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - Luxhabitat is pleased to announce the appointment of Sally Ann Ghai and Kunal Singh Gupta as Associate Directors.
Sally Ann has been in the UAE since 2007, and has in-depth experience of how the real estate market has developed and performed in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi throughout an unrivalled period of transformation in the UAE.
She has visibility on the established and emerging villa communities and a thorough knowledge of the views, locations and layouts available, and is equipped to advise on the popularity and practicality of the choices available to assist clients in making an informed decision on the right property purchase that fits with their aspirations and lifestyle.
With 17 years experience working with Middle Eastern clients, she understands the pulse of the region and how the hard and soft infrastructure of Dubai, the dynamic business opportunities and increasing global connectivity is developing to support the choice to become a homeowner in the Emirate.
Notable sales made by Sally Ann include an ultra-modern Emirates Hills villa valued in excess of AED 30 million.
On her appointment, Sally commented, "Luxhabitat's culture is one of innovation, support and unparalleled expertise in real estate. After nearly three years working with Luxhabitat, I've never been so proud to be part of the team. The promotion to Associate Director only reaffirms my commitment to the success and longevity of this company."
Kunal has lived in Dubai for almost nine years. He started his real estate career in March 2008 , where he worked for a real estate company for four years. In 2012, he began working for an eminent real estate developer, where he excelled.
He was awarded the workers as a top performer at the company due to his involvement and conversion on the complete sales and management of after sales for two of the renowned 5 star Viceroy branded hotels & residences. He focused primarily on the niche luxury hotel segment. Over his nine years career in real estate, Kunal has closed over AED 500 million (US$ 150 million) in sales. His clients over the past four years have primarily been ultra high net worth. At Luxhabitat, he specialises in dealing with boutique hotel residence developer SKAI holdings, the Palm Jumeirah and Emirates Hills. Being a resident of the Palm himself, Kunal knows the locality inside out.
Kunal commented, "The Dubai Property market is now being regulated to a far more superior standard in terms of quality of real estate transactions. This applies to the kind of buyers who are snapping up the same; be it end users or investors. My promotion to Associate Director only re-instates LUXHABITAT's confidence in my ability to be a shining star in this challenging business."
On the appointments, Managing Director Jason Hayes said, "Vince Lombardi once said 'Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.' Kunal and Sally’s individual commitment has indeed contributed greatly to our group effort and on going success. At LUXHABITAT we pride ourselves on having no glass ceilings here at Luxhabitat and more importantly each member of our team has a clear career path."
