"Qatar is currently one of the fastest growing cities in the world and was selected as the next Better Homes international office opening, part of a series of international roll out plans", said Ryan Mahoney, managing director of Better Homes.
The broker currently operates in seven countries and plans to expand further into Oman and South Africa by the end of 2009.
