*This list is in no particular order and has been put together based on nominations and data collected by Cityscape Intelligence

The MENA brokers and real estate consultants power list is sponsored by houza, the UAE's biggest agency-owned real estate website.

Launched in late 2020, houza is the UAE’s new home for buying, seller and renting. It offers a unique broker-supported model and is already making waves in the Dubai portal industry. This month, it rolled out transaction data for property seekers and sellers to access the last five transactions on listings for similar properties in the same area - something which has not been done before in the region. It is also the first portal to enable visitors to the site to book property valuations with agents directly through the platform. Its proposition is to make the entire property search experience as transparent, insightful and user-friendly as possible, both for consumers and the brokers who list their properties on houza.
