“The Awards series has become the gold standard for real estate in 16 markets over the past 16 years. This year’s award winners remind us that recent setbacks do not hinder or diminish the fundamental value of celebrating success.

“They have encouraged developers, large-scale investors and designers to become better versions of themselves, create the next generation of real estate developments and help industry stakeholders make higher quality decisions.”

“Over the past 16 years, the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards have become the most prestigious and respected real estate awards in Asia. Since we launched our virtual gala format last year, we’ve expanded our reach into new markets added to the series. We are delighted to see an increase in quality submissions from Australia.”

“There is no doubt that the awards have become the most respected and sought-after series of real estate awards in the Asia-Pacific region. When we moved to a virtual platform, our digital and hybrid gala presentations were viewed by more than half a million people in key regional markets.

“This year alone we have awarded more than 360 awards in our country series and through this recognition of the diverse achievements of developers, we hope to motivate industry leaders as they continue to break the boundaries of development and design and remain determined in their mission to set the Gold standard in real estate, no matter the challenges.”
