Any real estate developer or investor embarking on a property development journey toward higher yields and more significant returns need a foundation on which to build their real estate development process.
Ahmad Khalaf's foundational, value-driven and market-oriented strategies and tools cover the entire real estate development process including the pre-development, in-development, and post-development phases.
I worked with Ahmad for about three years (2008-2010) when he was head of business development at bloom properties reporting directly to me.
Ahmed is very resourceful and was able to secure unique new greenfield project opportunities for bloom in Iraq, Mauritius, Croatia, and Oman. It was a pleasure working with Ahmad.
Ahmed is a very energetic person with incredible networking skills that not only spanned the real estate sector in the UAE but across the MENA region and even beyond.
He was capable of landing deals in several GCC countries as well as in Georgia and other exciting locations. He is very much capable of pulling all the threads together to bring into light the most successful real estate opportunities.
Ahmad’s approach is impressive. We never thought we could generate so much value out of our land. His value-based market research approach identified several highly profitable development opportunities for our group.
Ahmad is not only an adept business development professional but also a good friend of mine whom I had the pleasure to accompany on many business trips over a period of 5 years. He is very skilled at building strong relationships with both internal and external stakeholders.
The company was delving into unknown territory and Ahmad used his keen understanding of the local culture and his upbeat and positive personality to negotiate a reasonable agreement with the National Investment Commission.
Ahmad’s achievements were terrific. He achieved what many could not. We became excellent friends and held to this date a genuine relationship.
