“Marharba’ Welcome To Qatar
Imagine waking up every morning to a beautiful blue sky with the sun shining and Palm Trees blowing gently in the breeze, driving along the palm fringed Corniche on your way to work whilst gazing at the Chrystal clear Arabian Gulf on one side and lush green parks on the other side, each day feels great. “Marharba” Welcome to Qatar. Welcome to my World. Janet Parry General Manager Direct Real Estate.
