Colliers International has won the top (five star) award for Best Property Consultancy – Marketing and highly commended for Best Property Consultancy at the annual Asia Pacific Property Awards, in association with Bloomberg.
This follows the agency’s success on April 19 at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) New Zealand awards, where Colliers International won all three categories: commercial, industrial and retail sales (based on the number of transactions over $5 million in 2011).
The Asia Pacific Property Awards, presented at a property and hospitality summit in Kuala Lumpur on Friday night, are part of the International Property Awards and have been running for the past 18 years. They are open to commercial and residential property companies from around the globe, recognising the highest levels of achievement in all sectors of the real estate industry.
Mark Synnott, chief executive of Colliers International New Zealand Limited, said: “Following our success at the RICS awards, we are delighted to be recognised at a regional level against strong competition from Australia and Asia.
“To be recognised in two major industry awards in the space of two weeks is extremely pleasing and is a reflection of the hard work put in by our teams around New Zealand in 2011.”
Stuart Shield, president of the International Property Awards, said: “We received a record number of entries for the Asia Pacific region this year and the standard was extremely high. Any company to win one of these awards has shown exceptional levels of professionalism and competence in their field.”
The judging panel comprised approximately 70 professionals including Fiona Nixon, chairman of the Australian Institute of Architects; Patrick Grove, co-founder of IPGA Ltd; Peter Bolton King, group chief executive of the National Federation of Property professionals; David Dalby of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS); and Mike McNamara of the Royal Bank of Scotland.
