The Abu Dhabi Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) and the Advanced Real Estate Services Company (ADRES) have collectively launched the Real Estate Digital Ecosystem ‘DARI’, to combine Abu Dhabi’s real estate services into a unified platform and provide integrated, comprehensive and advanced services.

The Real Estate digital services platform agreement was signed by Dr. Adeeb Al Afeefi, Executive Director of the Real Estate Sector at DMT, and Mr. Moath Maqbol, General Manager of ADRES, to promote new innovation and digital transformation of services in the real estate sector.

‘DARI’ allows users to manage their diverse real estate transactions by smooth and flexible experience, thereby attracting investors to the real estate sector. Its commitment to transparency in providing data to investors will contribute to the development of quality real estate services in Abu Dhabi.

The digital services agreement is part of DMT’s strategic goals of promoting cooperation between private and public sectors and developing smart cities. The DMT aims to accelerate the development of integrated urban communities and establish and promote an attractive and sustainable real estate market that will enhance living standards in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

The platform provides a set of services such as real estate buy, sell and lease transactions for national and international clients, organizations, and real estate professionals. In addition, it also provides a directory of registered real estate projects and a guide for Abu Dhabi’s real estate authorized brokers.

DARI will update with broader services by the second quarter of this year, with property market indicators, including market sales and mortgages values, off-plan sales transactions, and communication with property brokers. It will also be providing information about future investment opportunities in Abu Dhabi’s real estate market. The platform will also offer a list of buy, sell, and mortgage transactions, thus positioning it as a one-stop-shop for all real estate needs. DARI platform is expected to begin full operations later this year.

Mr. Abdulla Al Sahi, Under-Secretary of the Department of Municipalities and Transport stated that “The MoU is an essential step towards realizing future sustainable cities in Abu Dhabi that thrive on innovative practices. Unifying efforts and collaborating with the private sector to further improve the services of the real estate sector is a primary objective of the department’s mission, and it is crucial to develop an integrated real estate system.”

“The launch of the DARI platform is a strategic step that contributes to improving the quality of life for the residents of the emirate. It strengthens our continuous efforts to consolidate Abu Dhabi’s position locally and globally as an attractive destination for those looking to invest in the real estate sector in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi,” Mr. Al Sahi added.

Dr. Adeeb Al-Afifi, Executive Director of the Real Estate Sector at DMT remarked that, “The new platform will have a significant impact on the sustainable growth of the real estate sector in the short and long term. There is no doubt that the provision of information and data and all real estate services in an integrated platform will promote the real estate market’s attractiveness. By adopting advanced technologies based on artificial intelligence and achieving positive results through the platform, we will strengthen Abu Dhabi’s position globally.”

The General Manager of ADRES Mr. Moath Maqbool stated that “This strategic partnership is a qualitative leap that contributes to the development of operations within the real estate sector to achieve the goals of reengineering existing services, upgrading solutions, facilitating the completion of transactions for existing investors and attracting new ones.”
