The Inaugural Virtual PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) Gala Presents The Pioneering Winners’ Circle.

Property Seekers, Real Estate Agents, Overseas Developers And Industry Stakeholders Alike Partook In The Successful, Immersive and Interactive Virtual Event.

The first ever virtual gala of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia), now in its seventh year took place recently in mid-September successfully drawing property seekers, real estate agents, overseas developers and industry stakeholders alike.

The Malaysian chapter's prestigious real estate awards platform presented 35 award categories to the outstanding builders of the country's skylines and spaces via a multi-streamed event platform. Viewed globally through PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards site https://www.asiapropertyawards.com/en/tv-podcast/ and the official channels on YouTube and Facebook, viewers were also able to participate in an exclusive live chat on the official Awards website during the live broadcast. 

The seventh PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) saw Tropicana Corporation Berhad receive the title of Best Developer - supported by 10 wins which includes the coveted trophy of Best Condo Development (Malaysia) for Tropicana Grandhill.

The virtual gala awards also saw Fieldman Construction Sdn Bhd, one of several Special Recognition for CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) recipients named Best Boutique Developer. Meanwhile, Matrix Concepts Group, Mah Sing Group Berhad, AME Development Sdn. Bhd., and Ideal Property Group earned the newly introduced titles of Best Mega Township Developer, Best Lifestyle Developer, Best Industrial Developer, and Best Affordable Homes Developer, respectively.

Some 25 companies in Malaysian property development took part in the virtual celebrations and accepted their prizes via remote video. These included the Thai-Malaysian venture of Minor International and Themed Attractions Resorts & Hotels, which won the plum prize of Best Landed Development (Malaysia) for Anantara Desaru Coast Residences.

In the milestone for the programme, the Malaysia Real Estate Personality of the Year title was presented to Sarena Cheah, managing director of Sunway Berhad's property division, making her the first woman to receive this honour in Malaysia.

"Every day, the team at Sunway Property takes on the most pressing challenges of our time and that is to build sustainable cities and communities in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that are practiced across the world. This is because we see urban cities as the world's biggest challenge; but at the same time, that is potentially also our greatest solution," Cheah said.

"I would like to take the opportunity to also thank all our customers, employees, stakeholders, and everybody who has been on this journey with us. Thank you for being our inspiration, as at the end of the day, it's really putting smiles on everybody's faces that is our greatest joy in being a 'Master Community Developer,'" she added.
