Cavendish Maxwell extends GCC presence with Oman office
The property consultancy has appointed Khalil Alzadjali to head its operations in the sultanate
UAE-based property consultancy, Cavendish Maxwell, has opened a new office in Oman, it has been revealed.
Cavendish Maxwell founder and chairman, Jay Grant, said: “The move is part of an ambitious yet sensible expansion plan that will enable us to get closer to clients, demonstrate our exceptional capabilities, and meet the growing demand for our real estate services in Oman.”
The office will be based in Muscat, home to more than 30% of the country’s population.
The firm predicts significant opportunities in the sultanate’s real estate sector coupled with its potential as a tourist destination.
The company noted that increased infrastructure spending and employment avenues are expected to boost demand for residential, commercial and specialist property classes in the sultanate.
Cavendish Maxwell has also appointed Khalil Alzadjali to head its operations in Oman.
Alzadjali commented: “A lot of landlords and developers have very limited information about the real estate market, such as what to build, what the market needs and the risks that different parties face prior and during the development process and after completion.”
He added: “The government and private sector should embrace working together in order to assist and improve the real estate market in Oman, such as by controlling tax on properties and ensuring transparency on property information.”
According to the firm, Alzadjali has more than 14 years of experience in the real estate industry in Oman. He reportedly began his career in property valuations in 2003, and has since worked with numerous developers, banks, and private clients across the country.
