Thanks for making our 9th Connect Event a huge success!

Thanks for making our 9th Connect Event a huge success!Our 9th Connect Event was simply awesome, and here’s a quick recap of what went down on the night of  March 30th at the Tamanya Terrace, Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City.   Over 200 real estate professionals attended and enjoyed some free drinks and great networking.   The real estate community had the chance to connect with one another through our Instagram Challenge, where they were asked to snap a photo with another agent from a different company.  Visit our Instagram and look for #masterkeyconnect to see those who took on the challenge. As usual, we also gave away some awesome prizes too.  Livia Kubara from Lannhill Real Estate won a voucher for dinner for two at Certo, and Alyona Kusenko from Always Property took home the overnight hotel stay with free breakfast at Radisson Blu, Dubai Media City. The night’s big winner, Deepak Arora from SNS Properties, walked away with a brand new iPhone 6. So congratulations to all the winners!        Everyone had a ball, if the event photos are any indication.  Check out all of the night’s photos on the Airlist Facebook page.  Please feel free to share and tag yourself and your friends! Last but most certainly not least, the Connect Event wouldn’t be as spectacular (or even possible) without the support of our amazing sponsors.  So a huge  “thank you” to Bayut and Airlist! We’re already looking ahead to the next Connect Event, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.  

Masterkey and Bayut collaborate

Masterkey has teamed up once again with Bayut.com, one of the top property portals in the UAE,  to bring all UAE-based real estate professionals together in one place.  This 9th installment of the now infamous Masterkey Connect Event is a highly anticipated event that gives the real estate professionals a chance to connect with one another in a more relaxed networking and social environment.   This month, the Connect Event is back with Bayut as the primary sponsor.  The Connect Event will be held on Monday, March 30, 2015, from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at the Tamanya Terrace in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City. More than 250 real estate professionals are expected to attend.   Masterkey has worked closely with Bayut in the past, by improving the way agents list on their portal.   Masterkey introduced a tighter integration with Bayut by  releasing a useful feature called Post Now, where listings can be uploaded instantly to Bayut.com.  This feature allows brokers and agents to save time in marketing their properties by publishing their listings on Bayut.com in real time.   Being in the industry for a decade, Masterkey has seen the various problems faced by agents especially when posting their listings online.  This prompted Masterkey to address the challenge with the Post Now feature which was first integrated successfully with Bayut.com.  All  Masterkey users can enjoy the benefits of the Post Now feature.   As a leading real estate portal in the market, Bayut is well on its way of raising the bar for property search in the UAE with a fresh and modern look and the availability of apps on all platforms. Last year, Bayut.com welcomed a new investor and chairman of the board, Gilles Blanchard, founder of Seloger.com. “Our goal is simple: we want to have the best product in the market to help people make the correct call for one of the most important decisions of their lives. Everything else is secondary,”   says Mr. Blanchard.   On the heels of  a successful 2014, Bayut.com has put a lot of resources toward building scalable technology platforms for expansion.  Mr. Haider Ali Khan, CEO of Bayut.com, quips, “We have worked extremely hard on building scalable solutions and this gives us the ability to move at an extremely fast pace. We have also designed solutions to allow us to localize the user experience for any country in the region and do that very efficiently.” Innovation is at the heart of everything that happens at Bayut and that is reflective in the tools available on the website, data that cannot be found on any other portal in the UAE.    Home to a staff of 60 employees, Bayut is all set to grow this year by expanding into other countries while staying focused on exceeding the high standards of service people have to come to expect from the portal in the UAE. Masterkey and Bayut both have the mindset to innovate and improve the current situation of the real estate market, allowing each company to continuously search for ways to benefit the industry.     With this lasting relationships built over time, Masterkey and Bayut are looking forward to welcoming you to the next Connect Event!
