Mission

To Support Our Member’s Real Estate Business Success.

Why Join AREA Uganda?

To eliminate the negative trend of events that have been taking place in the real estate agency market place in Uganda like the high rate of un -educated and un-registered practitioners in the discipline thus branding it an unscrupulous venture by some media, inflation of property rates and unreliable service delivery has been the day-to-day characteristic.

Therefore, the officially registered companies and professionals have continued sharing the negative impact of society’s resistance of their services hence collapse of businesses, profession and distortion of service that is required by the majority of the Ugandan society.

The Association of Real Estate Agents (AREA-Uganda) is an umbrella institution of real estate agency/brokerage companies, and real estate agency /brokerage professionals in Uganda and other organizations that have key interests in real estate agency/brokerage. This is to stimulate cooperation in the business, strengthening professional qualifications and establishing codes of conduct and business standards.
