Indeed, Dubai is home to one of the world’s highest number of millionaires per capita, according to a recent report by Boston Consulting Group, and notably, wealth continued to grow throughout the crisis. With the pandemic boosting demand for more luxury properties (according to Knight Frank research), the top segment of the residential property market is seeing buoying demand.

Cummings brings a highly established track record in the market to Knight Frank, including overseeing the sale of two $100 million properties, which at the time, were the second and third highest sales in Dubai residential market history and the most expensive residential lease in Dubai in 2020, as well as the most expensive Emirates Hills sale in 2019.

“I am delighted to be joining Knight Frank to lead their expansion into Dubai’s residential market. As one of the world’s leading luxury real estate companies I am confident that we can add significant value through our levels of outstanding professionalism, local UAE real estate experience and leveraging our expansive global network of over 16,000 real estate professionals.”

“With Dubai’s property market roaring back to life and seeing record growth in 2021, now is absolutely the time to capitalise on this momentum to offer both buyers and sellers an unrivalled world class experience.”
