Those involved in property investment in Dubai may welcome news that a number of experts in the region have been singled out for praise.
In recognition of their successes in the field, ETA Star selected its most consistently impressive agents for "extraordinary sales" figures in the first half of 2009.
As part of the group's Star Select Club Half Yearly Rally, which took place at the Metro Deira Hotel, real estate organisations like Evgeny Gribov, Remax Wataniya and Engel & Veoelkers were honoured.
The awards could be seen as reflective of the current status of the Dubai property investment sector and its ability to perform well for developers and agents alike.
Abid Junaid, executive director at ETA Star Properties, said: "Our strongest ally in our success has been our agents … We value [them] as our business partners and thank them for their support and commitment."
In January, it was announced the Star Metro Deira Hotel had retained its status as a deluxe accommodation option for a second consecutive year.
