His network has also connected him to exclusive developments in the Caribbean and Europe and allowed him to represent the tallest building in the Caribbean, based in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. “My business model since inception has been to work closely alongside my personal network. It’s flattering to have built a strong book of clientele based solely on word of mouth and strong relationships. I’ve learned that the barriers of entry in this business are very low hence the importance of offering differential value through innovative work is essential to succeed in this competitive industry. One unique competitive advantage I’ve acquired is the ability to market my clients’ properties internationally and expose them to a broader pool of buyers” he says.

“In today’s world, there’s absolutely no doubt that a buyer’s first showing happens online, so my digital presence is really important. With this in mind, we have developed and refined a strategy through years of trial and error, where we don’t show too much, or too little, so potential buyers can ascertain if they are interested in a property yet still be curious enough to go to a showing and be surprised at how amazing it looks in person. We want them to come in and see more, experience the property but most importantly interact with myself in order to learn further about each property through my professional insights; insights that can not be found online or on a listing. We also have a publicist on staff whose sole job is to get our listings seen” said Khoury.

It’s never about one transaction, never about the location, property or time. It’s about the relationship. I’ve become a trusted advisor to my clients not only locally but also when they decide to purchase a second home in a different state or even transition to a different country».
