Do you remember the last time you went shopping for a suit or a dress for a special gala evening? Remember how many outfits you had to try on, the number of trousers too short or accessories over the price limit? And, then there’s finding the right shirt, the right shoes, the right cufflinks… Wouldn’t you say that finding the right property is a lot like that? Except perhaps a tad more time-consuming, a bit more stressful and a LOT more costly.
Whether you’re buying or renting property in Abu Dhabi, hiring a good agency can help save you a lot of time and money. In keeping up with Bayut’s dedication to help you unearth the best agencies in the country, we bring you a 3-minute exclusive interview with a real estate professional whose name you might have already seen in publications such as The National or Khaleej Times. He is the Managing Partner of Crompton Partners Estate Agents, Benjamin, better known as Ben Crompton.
Ben graduated law from Cambridge University (Jesus College) in 2001. After finishing his degree, he went on to work in a Hedge Fund in London before becoming a Hedge Fund and Private Equity Lawyer with Ashurst and later Akin Gump. Seven years later, he left the company to open a real estate firm in Abu Dhabi, which is now, of course, Crompton Partners Estate Agents. The other partner of the company is none other than Ben’s brother, Barnaby, better known as Barney Crompton who opened the Dubai division.
As Managing Partner of Crompton Partners, Ben oversees both the sales and leasing teams, in addition to managing the overall strategic direction of Crompton Partners Abu Dhabi. A former lawyer, he specialises in the investment and legal side of Abu Dhabi real estate. In Bayut’s exclusive interview with Ben, he reflects on his company’s success, Abu Dhabi property investment, the current price of the capital’s estates, the average rent, and much more.
