Confidence Real Estate | Agency of the Year 2020
After being rewarded Agency of the Year 2020, we had a small chat with Mr. Bitar regarding his accomplishments and his affiliation with OLX. Mr. Bitar stated: “I personally see OLX as a very organized and professional company when it comes to their services, communication and people. I have never had a negative experience and they have always exceeded my expectations. The influence OLX had was immense, the market was unstable and very complicated to deal with, but with the exposure OLX was able to give us, we were able to perform well by receiving lots of potential clients and to filter out significant leads.”
During hardships when it came to the market due to the unstable situation in the country, Mr. Bitar specified the impact of OLX, providing him with 40-50% of his sales through the OLX platform.
Mr. Bitar shared with us one of his unforgettable closings and wished the company continuous hard work and success, “Because of the exposure OLX gives us, I was once able to close a deal within 24 hours of placing the ad on the platform. I really hope OLX will keep on developing and growing as well as focusing on integrating the best technologies as we always knew it.”

Happy Land | Top Lead Generation 2020
Mr. Kanaan gave his thoughts about the deteriorating Lebanese market, stating that during the hardship in the market, OLX allowed him the chance to remain present in the market; “Additionally, we were able to adjust to the market changes to offer exact listings to our customers and keep in touch with them.” That said, 90% of Mr. Kanaan’s clients came from OLX, even in times where he was unable to sell them his own properties, he had the option of helping them find what they need instead, allowing him to gain a good deal of clients.
We asked Mr. Kanaan to enlighten us regarding one example of overcoming adversity, he detailed that one of the numerous success stories he had while working on OLX, was when he placed an advertisement to sell land available for purchase at the time. A man that had been working with wood contacted Mr. Kanaan which ultimately led to Mr. Kanaan investing in wood and coal, giving him the chance to begin selling these items on OLX alongside his real estate account. This gave him the opportunity to expand his network on OLX as well as the type of clients that would later be purchasing from him.
