Meet the Judges

The Gulf Real Estate Awards is unique in the depth of expertise it draws on from its extensive judging Panel.

As well as the Influencers who steer the judging selection process, and work to maintain the awards at the highest standards, our judges bring industry knowledge and category specific skillsets to assess every entry.

Of course we also take care to ensure there are no conflicts of interest and all Judges also sign a confidentiality agreement.

This page is constantly being updated as more Judges are approved to be part of the panels. Make sure you revisit it to discover more about the Judges.
