Linda Mahoney is the founder and chairwoman of Betterhomes LLC. She grew up in Montreal, Canada and embarked on a career as a registered nurse. In 1981, she moved to the UAE to set up a surgical clinic. Seeing the need for a property agency to help expats in Dubai find places to live, she left medicine behind after 25 years and in 1986, Linda established Betterhomes, a business that would grow into the leading real estate agency in the UAE.
Today, while her son is at the operational helm as CEO, Linda remains actively involved in the business to ensure that her original mandate of putting people first is embodied at all levels of her organisation.
