Harcourts currently have one real estate office trading within the United Arab Emirates in the growing city of Dubai. The office, owned by Trevor and Margaret Lyall together with Mohammad Abeidat, and Mohammed Salem Al Shamsi trades as Harcourts Dubai, previously Tala Bay Real Estate.

Property is a continually growing market within Dubai, with demand still outweighing supply despite over 400,000 residential properties and 40-60,000 newly built units coming onto the market each year. The property market in Dubai is driven by demand for high quality apartments and villas with a gradual shift in focus to meet an increased demand for more affordable housing for middle income earners.

Over the past decade, the UAE and Dubai in particular has seen some of the fastest population growth of any country globally. This coupled with the thriving economy has made the UAE a logical destination for Harcourts.
