The DLD revealed that there were 468 women registered to conduct property transactions, compared to 1,770 men, which equates to a female share of approximately 21 per cent. Currently, there are 621 Emiratis; 340 Pakistanis; 336 Indians; 177 British nationals and 134 Egyptians registered as property brokers in Dubai. Other nationalities are the Philippines, Iran, Russia and Uzbekistan.

“The number and diversity of nationalities working in the field of real estate brokerage reveals the attraction of the activity itself and is an indication of the confidence felt by brokers to work in the sector,” said Yousif Al Hashimi, deputy chief executive of the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (Rera), the regulatory arm of DLD.

Further demographic statistics taken from DLD’s report revealed the gender balance in Dubai’s real estate sector, with a relatively high number of women working as brokers. The report showed that there were 468 women registered to conduct property transactions in Dubai in 2013, compared to 1,770 men. The figures equate to a female share of approximately 21 per cent, or one woman for every five men.
