iProperty.com Malaysia Wins Coveted “Best Property Portal” at CNBC Asia Pacific Property Awards
Asia’s No. 1 online property group makes clean sweep by winning in 4 countries: Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Philippines. This is a historical achievement as it is the 1st company to have ever won an award in 4 countries for the same category
The CNBC Asia Pacific Property Awards is part of the International Property Awards, which began in 1995 in London, and has since established itself as the premier annual programme that distinguishes Asia Pacific companies with the highest levels of achievement in a range of property-related fields in 21 categories. Winners are usually identified as companies and individuals who are raising the standards by providing excellent skills and services and continually reaching new heights in quality and innovation.
Entries were judged by a panel of professionals whose collective knowledge of the property industry is second to none and unsurpassed by any other property awards. Chaired by Eric Pickles, British Shadow Secretary of State, this year’s judges included Helen Shield, editor-in-chief of International Homes magazine; Peter Bolton King, chief executive of the National Association of Estate Agents; Phil Spencer, property expert and presenter of Channel 4’s Location and Relocation TV shows; Imtiaz Farookhi, chief executive of the National House Building Council; Christopher Hall, past president National Association of Estate Agents; Wilhelm Harnish, Master Builders of Australia (MBA); Thijis Staff, International Consortium of Real Estate Agents Association (ICREA); Santiago Herreros de Tejada, SIMA; Kirkor Ajderhanyan, French Real Estate Federation (FNAIM); Graham Norwood of the Daily Mail; David Hoppit, property writer; Paul Wyatt, head of design for LYCOS UK; Geoff Cohen, design director at Aukett Fitzroy Robinson architects; Jill Keene, editor of International Homes magazine; Diana Yakely, chairman British Interior Design Association;
Said Patrick Grove, Executive Chairman of the iProperty.com Group, “iProperty.com has made history as this is the first time a single company has won this highly prestigious award in four countries, for the same category. This is truly a great achievement for our Malaysian website and the iProperty.com network as a whole. In Malaysia, we are already the clear market leader in the online property space, with over 35,000 quality property listings by over 1,500 accredited real estate agents; and the country’s top developers. The fact that we have won the “Best Property Portal” award in every single market we operate in is clear testimony that the iProperty.com network can not only compete but also triumph within the highly competitive Asia Pacific online property arena. This prestigious win definitely reinforces our position in Malaysia and the region as Asia’s leading online property group.”
For the first time this year, the CNBC Asia Property Awards will be presented at a glittering gala dinner to be held at the Marina Mandarin Hotel in Singapore on 20 July, 2008.
