I very recently relocated to Dubai and needed to find an apartment within a month of arriving. Understandably was a bit overwhelming, as i have never been to Dubai before (other than transiting through DXB) but a colleague referred me to Carmela Dela Cruz from Al Furjan Branch and spoke very highly of her. I very soon came to realise that that high level praise was completely justified! I had my sights set on an apartment but was soon told that it was no longer available, but Carmela wasted no time in finding quite a few options that were well-within my price range (and other criteria). We met at the viewing of the apartment I am currently renting and found her to be incredibly personable and knowledgable on renting property in the UAE. I was guided through the entire process and felt reassured every step of the way! Even at times when I would call her with questions and concerns, she would immediately set my mind at ease and resolve any issue I had. All this has gone a long way in making my relocation to Dubai a very pleasurable and hassle-free experience. I HIGHLY-RECOMMEND Carmela Dela Cruz from Al Furjan Branch to anyone in need of a property to rent! she is an asset to your team and I wish her all the best for the future and THANK YOU for everything!

A happy customer of fam Properties. The firm has a very professional approach in dealing with the clients. I was assisted by the firm's customer executive Ms. Carmela Mendez, who was able to visualize my requirements and suggest me apt apartments. She was also instrumental in identifying the pros and cons, suiting the clients. The paperwork associated with the registration is hassle-free and you will be guided by the team for completion of each requirement, except for the EJARI, which the tenant has to complete. Recommending as a good option for all house-hunters.
