Joy Kirby joined Oryx World Real Estate Brokers as Transaction Manger in March 2013. Originally from a Health and Safety background, with over twenty years of work experience in the corporate field before moving into Property Management with a portfolio of over 20 buildings in the North of England.
Her move to Dubai in 2007 led to her position with a Developer with projects in Ireland, UK as well as Dubai. In fact they completed the building where Oryx offices are based, Empire Heights in Business Bay. Joy joined as an administrator and personal assistant during the period when Dubai was at its dizzy heights and then survived through the downturn of the Economic Global Crisis. This invariably meant she had to adapt to the many changing roles. Her increasing responsibilities and her excellent communication skills led to her promotion as Customer Relations Manager in 2009.
This experience coupled with her exceptional organisational skills are her main strengths and therefore her role as Transaction Manager fits in perfectly. This role is to ensure the Conveyance Department transactions are completed on time within the Company’s Service Level Agreements whilst providing the best customer service in the market.
Joy’s wealth of experience has succeeded in providing greater business efficiency in such a short period and her strive to exceed customer expectations is a key feature to Oryx World’s current success.

Fabian Vaz – Regional Sales Manager says:
“Joy, Thank you for making the sale of the office an absolutely painless process. Your professionalism and attention to detail are a credit to your company. But the Buyer and myself are in complete agreement on this. You were always one step ahead!
You have certainly set the standard in an industry where agents are all too often careless and under prepared! Should there be another opportunity to Sell/Buy a property I will without a doubt be contacting OryxWorld. All the best !!!!”
Mr. T Curtis – Banker says:
“Joy, A big thanks to you and Sean for the sale and settlement efforts.
Joy, a special mention to you for your untiring work. There were many frustrations with the banks process and I appreciate your energy and tenacity in getting things resolved so we could settle the property. I’ll certainly recommend Oryx in the future.”
D Dodson says:
“HUGE THANK YOU…
for the amount of effort you have put into this sale. You have gone above and beyond what I would ever expect and to say that this sale would not have been possible without you is an understatement because you have even been a massive reason why my new purchase is going ahead. For that I can’t say thank you enough.
During the sale and purchase of both apartments I have had quite a lot to do with a number of agents, I can honestly say, you are the only agent I would want to use again and I would insist on Joys contribution.”
C Collier – PR Company Owner says:
“Now that the sale of our villa at Lime Tree Valley has gone through, I wanted to write to you to thank you for all your advice and help in securing the sale and processing the transaction.
Throughout we found your handling of the negotiations to be highly professional. The advice given was always very clear and objective taking informed account of both the market conditions and our particular circumstances. Once the sale was agreed, your guidance through the completion process was equally professional. Your transaction manager Joy Kirby kept us constantly on course and informed of the myriad requirements, often against the moving sands of legislation and bureaucracy. Joy was always extremely prompt in her response and clearly has the experience to make things happen in a structured and efficient manner.
As you know we have considerable experience in dealing with real estate companies in Dubai, so our appraisal of your service is an informed one. In truth, it would be a poor testimonial that drew any comparison between your service and that of any others in the area, as it would suggest that you were only the best of a generally very poor bunch. Therefore, without reservation we would recommend your company as providing a first class service by any standard of international comparison.”
“We would like to thank Oryx World Real Estate, in particular Joy Kirby and Sean Sweeney, for their professionalism, attention to detail and invaluable support while completing the recent sale of our property in Dubai. We were kept abreast at each stage in the process, support was always readily available and most importantly, the communication and information provided was accurate, timely and reliable………..a credit to the Real Estate industry.
We would be more than happy to recommend your services to family and friends in the furure and if we ever have a need for these services again, Oryx World will be our first point of contact.
All the very best and thanks once again for your help and support during the whole process.”
Dr Saad B. E. says:
“The art of selling start with building a trust…Building trust depend on clarity & offering the thing before you ask for.
Such an attitude from your side ended (as you said) in closing the fastest deal you ever made.
Life can be simple…
Thank you for being what you are…”
Andy – Airline / Aviation executive says:
