Lewis Allsopp, CEO says “We are elated to have reached this milestone and we have so much to be grateful for – from the Dubai government’s enduring support to each and every landlord, seller, buyer and tenant – so many people have been instrumental in our growth and success.”
“Ten years in business reflects good business strategy. Our thought process has never been for the quick buck, our growth has been truly organic by ensuring we operate the right way whilst taking no shortcuts. We have seen other companies – old and new – come and go, but with solid business acumen and a rapid, growth strategy in place, Allsopp & Allsopp have ridden the property market highs and lows with relative ease.”
Allsopp & Allsopp opened their doors in 2008 with modest beginnings and have since taken the brand to international levels opening three branches in the UK. This year, the Forbes listed company have expanded in their home city of Dubai beyond their head office in Business Bay. Key community areas such as Jumeirah Golf Estates, The Springs, and the Palm Jumeirah have been graced with the presence of Allsopp & Allsopp’s knowledgeable and experienced real estate agents.
The CEO continues “The addition of these new branches enables us to maintain a deep understanding of the areas we work in every day and allows us to become part of the community. We want to be part of the fabric of the community, like the health care centre, the café, and the gym.”
“We have all of our staff to thank for our market strength and growth. Their dedication, professionalism, and commitment to always going the extra mile are one of our key differentiators. We receive thousands of CV’s every month and we carefully pick every team member from the administrators, to the real estate agents, and to the technical geniuses. Each and every team member forms the backbone of Allsopp & Allsopp.”
“I don’t mind admitting that we have shaken up the local real estate sector, and we continue to be disruptive. If we research a technology that we feel will help our clients, we are always keen to do what it takes to implement it. In today’s climate our clients want things done quicker, easier and more efficiently – if we can find and develop ways of doing that, we will. While other companies adopt a ‘wait and see’ approach when it comes to technology, we like to be among the early adopters – and that’s how we continue to go from strength to strength.”
To mark a decade of business in the emirate, the company have taken the decision to freshen up their brand.
Carl Allsopp, Group Managing Director says “We have lasted the test of time! We have come through an economic downturn and evolved. The whole world as we knew it has changed, we as people have changed and how we engage and how we consume our media has changed. Opening ten years ago, the print press was the go-to form of advertising for all real estate brokerages, however, today all the information you need is in the palm of your hand. With that in mind, we felt that turning ten was the perfect opportunity to evolve the entire brand with a clean and fresh look which would be easy on the eye for all forms of media, print and digital and all social platforms. The rebrand represents what is to come next for Allsopp & Allsopp. The world is becoming more and more tech-savvy and we want to be at the forefront of this and have a brand that represents us and what we stand for as a company.”
Carl continues “We have always been committed to staying one step ahead. Be it developing new processes, training or even introducing industry-first technology, translating in a great client experience with Allsopp & Allsopp. We have lots of exciting initiatives in the pipeline, which will never have been seen before in real estate, and something I feel our clients will love, and come to expect from other firms in years to come.”
According to Lewis Allsopp, the future success of the family-owned agency, run to international standards, includes continuing to focus on technology, people and innovation.
“As a people-driven organisation, we are always looking for best-in-class ways to maintain, train and retain our staff. The real estate industry traditionally suffers from a high churn rate, but it’s a testament to our team and the camaraderie and incentives we offer, that many of our team have been with us from the day we opened our first office back in 2008.”
“Innovation lies at the heart of our organisation. I never thought that running a real estate company would involve so much ‘thinking out-of-the-box’; but it’s what drives us to stay at the top of our game.”
