Meet Lewis, our CEO. Lewis began his real estate career in the spring of 2003 when he joined his brother, Carl, at one of Coventry’s largest independent real estate agencies. His competitive nature got the better of him when Carl was coming home with the newest version of everything. After a successful run in the UK, Lewis was offered an exciting opportunity to relocate to Dubai in January 2006 where he worked for a leading real estate company in the Middle East.
The Dubai property market was rising fast and Lewis saw this as an opportunity to learn a whole new avenue and broaden his knowledge, Knowledge that would then lead to him being head hunted by a startup agency and selling entire developments in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. At 21 years old he was appointed Sales Director for a large independent developer where he was responsible for the launch of eight residential towers and one commercial tower.
After having this tremendous success, the Allsopp and Allsopp seed was planted and the first branch was opened in September 2008. Lewis and his brother, Carl, knew they could make a massive impact in an ever growing market and raise industry standards with a wealth of both UK and UAE experience and knowledge. Allsopp & Allsopp began with four employees and now employs over two hundred people across four UAE branches and three branches in the UK.
Lewis has successfully completed the Real Estate Valuation course, ran by IIR Middle East and Washington University. Yet again, proving his commitment to broadening his knowledge and skills to keep on top of an ever changing market.
His flair for bringing innovation to the property market saw Lewis voted the second most influential person in real estate by Property Times. Lewis prides himself in being a people’s person and is always striving to reach goals in and out of work. He climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, completed the London Marathon and remains the office Fifa King.
Lewis is constantly looking to the future and exploring different ways to drive the business forward whilst maintaining his approachable and understanding personality towards his team.
