About Michael Ghannoum

Born and raised in Dubai for 25 years, Michael grew up in a city always leading by example which left a direct imprint on him eventually graduating with a bachelor’s in healthcare management from the Canadian University in Dubai. Michael quickly found a passion for sales by working for some of the industry leaders such as AMD, Harley-Davidson, BlackBerry, Samsung amongst others.

Having worked with Cityscape Dubai, one of the world's most important real estate exhibitions and summits and the largest in the MENA region, his passion for real estate emerged.

Moving to Canada with his family in 2013, he joined Pfizer marketing and sales team, eventually leading them to two consecutive years of top sales in Canada. A great opportunity presented itself to join marcus evans in the executive sales department, however, the global pandemic forced him to rethink his career leading him to officially enter the Real Estate World. He then joined the ever-growing Yulstay family as their Property Manager, all the while doing the requisite trainings necessary in order to obtain his brokerage license.

WHAT ARE YOUR INGREDIENTS FOR SUCCESS?

I believe that the key ingredients for success are time management and a prosperous environment. Time is the most valuable asset that someone can possess and the moment you are able to utilize it to the best of your advantage, you can easily accomplish more than the day before. I am also a strong believer that the right environment can help you achieve your goals. A famous quote I love to live by is that you are the average of the 5 people you spend your time with.

WHY REAL ESTATE?

When I lived in Dubai, I saw some of the most beautiful skyscrapers, houses and land being built 365 days a year. There is no doubt an imagination of a career in Real Estate always lingered in the back of my head. My passion kept growing when I got recruited to work as a lead promoter at Cityscape Dubai from 2007 to 2011 inclusively. Being held in none other than the fastest growing city in the World, Cityscape is one of the largest Real Estate exhibitions worldwide and the largest in the MENA region.
