Ekaruna - - Interview Relay -

Be­fore launch­ing any new des­ti­na­tion, we study it thor­oughly to make sure it fits our in­vestors’ ob­jec­tives. We iden­tify strate­gic al­liances that are in line with VER­TICA Realty Group ob­jec­tives so we can of­fer the most com­pet­i­tive, in­no­va­tive and out­stand­ing ser­vices.

For ex­am­ple, the se­lec­tion of the Cana­dian mar­ket was based on eco­nomic sta­bil­ity, ed­u­ca­tion and its im­mi­gra­tion sys­tem - fac­tors that have been fu­el­ing the Cana­dian real es­tate sec­tor for many years. On top of that, there are a huge num­ber of Arab-Cana­di­ans or po­ten­tial im­mi­grants who might be in­ter­ested to buy / in­vest in a property in Canada.

As for Lon­don, it has al­ways been a “safe haven” for in­vestors, es­pe­cially in the real es­tate sec­tor. Based on our mar­ket re­search we have found that there is still a big ap­petite from GCC na­tion­als to buy /in­vest in Lon­don real es­tate. In ad­di­tion to this, we can add that the UK has very trans­par­ent and long-stand­ing property laws with property ten­ure that is clear cut and un­der­pinned by the le­gal sys­tem.

Ekaruna Ekaruna Along with Beirut, Dubai, Toronto and United King­dom, what other cities does VER­TICA Prop­er­ties of­fer its in­vestors and clients a se­lec­tion of res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties for sale and lease? At this stage we are ex­plor­ing some new mar­kets, es­pe­cially the ones offering per­ma­nent res­i­dency/cit­i­zen­ship. Be­cause of the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion in the Mid­dle East, the ap­petite for such prod­ucts is huge. We will be an­nounc­ing th­ese new mar­kets as soon as we fi­nalise our due dili­gence and iden­tify the best op­por­tu­ni­ties in th­ese mar­kets.

Ekaruna Out of all the cities you listed, which one hold the spot for the most prof­itable and suc­cess­ful city? Which city holds the least? To be frank, we can­not po­si­tion it that way as each mar­ket has its own char­ac­ter and ben­e­fits. Lon­don and Toronto have been good per­form­ers but again Beirut, even with its cur­rent sit­u­a­tion, is still a good per­former – but of course for the right property with the right price. So in gen­eral, we are sat­is­fied with all the mar­kets that we op­er­ate in.
