Dubai Land Department (DLD), represented by the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA), has entered into partnership agreements with Property Finder, Bayut Web Publishing and Dubizzle to empower local talents and raise awareness in Duba’si real estate sector. These partnerships aim to create an exceptional real estate training environment to improve service efficiency, enhance customer satisfaction, and advance services in alignment with best practices and standards in the industry.
The signing ceremonies of the agreements took place on the sidelines of the ‘Tamkeen Real Estate Workshop’ hosted by DLD on 4 March. The event was attended by Eng.
