Who we are

A potent combination of custom solutions, unrivalled technology, and a truly global presence, all leads to one thing: savings. For customer and environment, alike.

Our History

International Real Estate Partners (IREP) was formed in 2013 by Kenneth McCrae and Kamran Abbas with the HQ in Dubai, UAE. Since its conception, IREP has punched above its weight.

The growth that was to come was both substantial and rapid. Scaling from 10 entities to more than 49 (and counting), in a matter of 8 years.

The 5 key pillars are: Facilities Management | Energy | Assets | Sustainability | Property

The overarching strategy that was responsible for this impressive start was ‘diversified diversification’: diversifying by clients, geographies, and service lines. All the while, IREP has remained committed to being a ‘boutique’ business that offers custom solutions to every client, every time.

Covering the globe, from Australia, to India, Singapore , South Korea, Nigeria, Morocco , Greece , UK, North America , Mexico and Columbia, we now traverse all 6 inhabited continents.

As of now, we are only 9 years into our venture, and we have exciting plans ahead. We’re only just getting started.


As a team, the two are formidable. Kenneth is the strategic head, determining the vision and direction for the company, whereas Kamran is the lead for financial and implementation functions. Every transaction goes past his desk, and he is fundamental to making Kenneth’s strategy, reality.
