Louise Heatley

Exclusive Links Podcast,  Property Talk from Louise’s Lounge,  is all about keeping our audience in touch with current topics, sharing relevant and accurate information and introducing interesting guests and industry professionals.  Today we go live with Episode 22 of our Podcast  “The High End of Luxury” where Louise is joined by our very own Pauline Leale and another voice of experience Jerry Parks. Pauline, who heads up The Elite Collection, Exclusive Links luxury brand, needs little introduction in the industry.  As a previous owner of a very successful real estate business here in Dubai and supported by more than 20 years of experience, Pauline is well connected and has always worked with a portfolio of private clients looking for professional experience, maturity, integrity and utmost honesty. Again another well known figure in the industry, is Jerry Parks, Partner and Head of Real Estate at the international law firm Taylor Wessing. Jerry has been in Dubai for over 25 years and deals mainly with high-net-worth and high profile individuals investing in the Dubai residential real estate market. Jerry specialises in high end transactional work, is also experienced in advising on structuring real estate acquisitions and also advises on succession and inheritance issues.

  • Pauline explains what the criteria are at Exclusive Links to be included in our portfolio of The Elite Collection and how she now differentiates between luxury and ultra- luxury. 
  • Jerry talks through some of the extra considerations needed when dealing with HNWI clients and how he and Taylor Wessing can help buyers and sellers
  •  Is an NDA commonly used in these high-value transactions and are they really needed? 
  • So how do you ‘beef up’ a Form F to ensure that clients and the peculiarities and process of high ticket piece sales are more protected? What client comforts are important? 
  • Has the extra KYC checks that have been reinforced lately had any impact on the high-end luxury market? 
  • Pauline provides some stats that support how this end of the market has grown over the past 12 months with October 2022 especially being a record month.  
  • Louise offered Pauline AED50M - where did she suggest she needs to be looking for property and home to fit the budget? 

Thank you Pauline and Jerry for your time today and for sharing your experience on the high end of the property market.  In this episode between Louise and her two guests, there is over 70 years of experience on the couch and we hope you enjoy the chat.
