Luxury Outlook 2022
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
Sotheby’s International Realty today announced its expanding presence in the Middle East with the opening of Oman Sotheby’s International Realty. The addition of Oman Sotheby’s International Realty signifies the brand’s continued growth and its third affiliated company in the region.
Oman Sotheby’s International Realty is owned by Alfardan Group and is led by Faisal Al Shanfari, country manager, who brings 20 years of experience to the company.
“Oman is widely considered to be a welcoming place to live and work, with a large expat community,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty. “The Omani government recently implemented the 99-year lease and free hold zones, further providing expats with the confidence to invest and buy property in Oman. We also know from our 2021 Luxury Outlook report that countries, with scenic landscapes and waterfront views are generating tremendous interest, and Oman offers both. We look forward to working with Faisal and the entire Oman Sotheby’s International Realty team to grow their business in the country.”
“The market in Oman is improving and moving faster than ever,” said Faisal Al Shanfari “Our mission is to deliver the highest quality of service to our clients. Aligning our company with Sotheby’s International Realty not only builds on that commitment, but it also provides our agents with a global resource for marketing extraordinary properties in prime locations and key areas in Oman, and the brand’s vast network enables us to serve our Omani clients seeking luxury and resort properties around the world.”
