Ghada “GG” Benitez, a first-generation Arab-American entrepreneur and brand builder, is on a mission to connect Dubai and Coastal California through her latest venture, GG Benitez International. As a lifelong resident of San Diego, Benitez realized the opportunity to strategically link these two markets during her travels to Dubai last year. Despite their distinct identities – Dubai being cosmopolitan and Coastal California more laid-back – they both check all the boxes for luxury investment properties and second homes. “The allure of both locations lies in their prime vacation spots, numerous beaches and attractions, upscale lifestyle, cultural diversity, and stable real estate value,” Benitez remarked.
As a first-generation Arab-American and lifelong San Diego resident, Benitez is closely tied to both Middle Eastern and U.S. cultures and is fluent in English and Arabic.
In addition to her real estate ventures, Benitez is a serial entrepreneur and the founder of several highly successful businesses in sales, public relations, and the global luxury and travel industries. Benitez has been successful in establishing GG Benitez & Associates Public Relations, Inc., a full-service boutique PR agency with an international reach. She is also the co-founder of Aloisia Beauty, a celebrity-loved clean and cruelty-free skincare brand.
With GG Benitez International of Realty Executives Dillon, Benitez aims to educate investors on the exceptional investment opportunities in both Dubai and Coastal California. Her unique position in both markets and her commitment to providing the best guidance and services for global real estate transactions make her a valuable resource for clients seeking luxury properties.
In addition to earning her California Real Estate License, Benitez furthered her studies and was recently designated the Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designation from the National Association of REALTORS®. This distinction places her among a select group of 3,500 elite real estate professionals in over 45 countries, reflecting her advanced expertise, global perspective, and understanding of international buyers’ needs.
GG Benitez International, in collaboration with Dubai’s top-ranked agents, most trusted high-end developers, international tax attorneys, mortgage brokers, and property managers, offers a concierge-style service to streamline the investing process of US investors in the record-breaking luxury market of Dubai. The team’s market insight and business strategies ensure a seamless transaction process and access to exclusive off-plan listings and outstanding projects in Dubai.
Benitez is deeply immersed in Dubai’s booming real estate industry, which is a significant contributor to the city’s thriving economy. She aims to bring more U.S. investors to this vibrant market, citing Dubai’s incredible growth, innovation, tourism, safety, stable economy, golden visa opportunity, and luxurious lifestyle as key drivers for real estate investment.
To bring Dubai investors to the United States, Benitez has partnered with Realty Executives Dillon, a leading California brokerage. Terri Dillon, the broker and owner of Realty Executives Dillon, recognizes Benitez’s skills and experience as a valuable asset to the company and is excited to help support Benitez’s mission to connect the two real estate markets. “GG Benitez brings a distinct cultural perspective to the luxury real estate market. Her passion for connecting two diverse worlds and her expertise in real estate, sales, and public relations make her a force to be reckoned with in the global real estate industry,” said Dillon.
Coastal California, with its safe and upscale areas like La Jolla, Del Mar, and Coronado, is a highly sought-after market in the United States. Furthermore, the region’s sizable Arabic-speaking population adds to its appeal for Middle Eastern clients seeking stateside investments.
GG Benitez International represents the realization of Benitez’s vision to bring Dubai and Coastal California closer together, facilitating unmatched investment opportunities for clients worldwide. Her dedication to fostering stronger ties between these two luxurious destinations ensures a bright future for her venture and the clients she serves.
Benitez earned her economics degree from the University of California San Diego – Revelle (UCSD) in La Jolla, and currently resides in San Diego with her husband, Daniel, and their three children.
