Luxury real estate advisory company, Montague Real Estate, is going even more global. The company, based in Mayfair, London, defines its purpose as ensuring “clients have access to a trusted advisor and an established global network, which in turn allows them an opportunity to acquire some of the finest homes on the planet.” This just became even more achievable as its Head of Residential, Luke Banks, has announced that he is permanently residing in Dubai to help solidify the market there even further.

“I am delighted to be touching down in Dubai again,” he says. “I first arrived in Dubai in 2011 and fell in love with the city and the property market there, after a 2-year stint in London (still working within the Dubai market) it's very exciting for me to have my feet on the ground again. This time I am arriving with the backing of a very exciting brand and am looking forward to a big future in the Middle East for Montague Real Estate.”

Luke Banks has been with Montague since September of 2020 and worked from the London office establishing relationships overseas, including in Dubai. With the market rising, now was the perfect time to relocate physical operations and have the Head of Residential based in Dubai. Luke’s focus will be onboarding exclusive ready properties, being on the ground for prime and super-prime transactions, and building Montague’s brand presence and team in the region.

“It's a great time to be landing as the market is extremely active with huge volumes of transactions going through, Dubai, of course, remains popular with GCC investors, as well as Indian, British and Chinese buyers topping the charts of investors from outside of the region,” Luke says.

Montague has hand-selected developments in the Dubai market that align with its vision and is working with key development partners including Emaar, Omniyat, Sohba, and XX11 Carat. The Dubai market offers apartments, townhouses, and penthouses, with huge signs of growth in the turnkey market as well. Dubai is a strategically located city that offers great opportunities across lifestyle, investment, and business activity, and now that more and more people are working remotely due to the pandemic, inquiries for properties in the area have risen dramatically.

With the government of Dubai encouraging international investment as well, such as with their “Invest in Dubai” platform, now is the perfect time for Montague to make the move.

“This is an incredible moment for Montague Real Estate and for Luke. Dubai is a market that has grown exponentially over the last 10 years and will only continue to grow,” echos Thomas Balashev, founder of Montague Real Estate. “This market, in particular, is one that resonates with our clients and offers both lifestyle, business, and investment opportunities so this region was the natural next step for Montague Real Estate's expansion.”
