Real Estate Agents and Negotiators Celebrate Excellence
Kuala Lumpur, October 3, 2015: Recognizing the pinnacle of excellence and talent in the field of real estate, the National Real Estate Awards celebrated the outstanding achievements of Real Estate firms, Real Estate Agents (REA) and Real Estate Negotiators (REN) that performed well throughout 2014.
The Gala Dinner, hosted at the Sime Darby Convention Centre, was graced by the President of the Board of Valuers, Appraisers and Estate Agents (BOVAEA) Sr. Faizan bin Abdul Rahman. In attendance at the black tie event were over 750 people and marked the 7th year since the National Real Estate Awards was initiated in 2009.
This year saw several significant milestones such as the opening of new categories to celebrate innovation and the recognition of top performing rookies in the real estate fraternity. A record breaking 38 submissions were received for 19 categories of which seven were new categories.
The new categories launched this year included Top Rookie Realtor of the Year, Top Project Marketing Firm of the Year, Most Innovative Firm of the Year, Real Estate Website of the Year, Top Real Estate Negotiator of the Year, Top State REN of the Year and Rookie REN of the Year.
Eric Lim, Organizing Chairman of the National Real Estate Awards Committee said “we are delighted that so many Real Estate agencies participated this year and we look forward to recognizing the top talent that the real estate fraternity has to offer”.
One of the more exciting awards was the Million Dollar Roof Top Award, presented to Estate Agents who have in their personal capacity collected a minimum of RM 1 million in professional fees in 2014. A total of three Estate Agents shared the award this year which was a testimony of their dedication even with a softening property market in 2014.
The Lifetime Achievement Award, formerly known as the Leadership Award, was also presented to the personality that had contributed significantly to the growth and development of the Real Estate Agency industry over the years. The recipient this year was Mr. Stephen Tew of Hectares & Stratas.
Eric further commented that it was also a challenge for the judges to choose the winners due to the amazing results and talent showcased by firms, REAs and RENs.
He also hoped that this drive to commemorate the pursuit of excellence will continue in subsequent years.
“What makes a successful REA or REN is the focus given towards providing the best possible service to our clients. As legally registered agents or certified negotiators, these awards represent the highest standard to which we hold to our professionalism and quality of service,” he added.
The event also saw the ceremonial handing over of MIEA’s Presidency from Immediate Past President Mr. Siva Shanker to incoming President Mr. Erick YT Kho.
Award sponsors included theedgeproperty.com and PropertyGuru with Homefinder as the magazine partner and The Star as media partner respectively. Nextdor Property Communications was the public relations partner.
