First of all:

You need to do some proper research. There is plenty of information online.

Do a search on this forum and you'll get an idea.

Here are some more articles to read and have a good think about it.

I think where there might be a valid case for accepting an estate agent or other commission based job is for an accompanying spouse (partner with a fixed income) - as a single person moving to UAE it's very risky because of the way everything works here. If you have enough money in the bank to sustain yourself for 3-6 months to give it a go, maybe.. I wouldn't do it.

Good luck

Hi Kas,
Did you ever go to Dubai?
I own a real estate company in the UK and have been given the task to look at setting up a branch in Dubai. Would love to hear your thoughts.

Good question, if he does indeed own said company then no one would give him any task as such

Hi,
The last time that Kas logged onto this site was January 2013 - probably tells you everything that you need to know!
Cheers
