Dubai property market just started to grow again in the past few months and is expected to continue to rise due to Expo 2020 as well.

Yes you do and to obtain one these are the steps:

  1. UAE citizens and GCC nationals can easily sign up for the licensing process. Expats, however, need to have a valid residency visa to apply for a job as a realtor in Dubai.
  2. Sign up for the training with Dubai Real Estate Institute (DREI). Known as the Certified Training for Real Estate Brokers, the four-day course aims to give you the necessary insight into the region’s real estate industry. The course is approved by the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA), which is the regulatory arm of Dubai Land Department (DLD).
  3. Once you complete the four-day training, you will have to appear for a written RERA registration exam.
  4. Once you clear the exam, you will be on your way to get a realtor licence for working as a real estate agent in Dubai. An additional requirement for getting a broker’s licence is a certificate of good conduct.

Being a real estate agent is an interesting career choice as you have the chance to help people find their dream homes (or dream offices, for that matter). It’s an engaging job where you have the opportunity to meet with a diverse, multicultural client portfolio.

Of course, becoming one of the highly regarded and successful real estate brokers in Dubai is no easy feat. It’s a competitive industry, so be prepared to work hard, engage regularly with customers and learn to identify their needs.
