National Real Estate Awards: “Oscars of the Real Estate Profession.”

2019-08-02

Ministry of Housing and Local Government, YB Zuraida Kamaruddin said she hopes that the National Real Estate Awards by the Malaysia Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA) will one day be recognised as the “Oscars of the Real Estate Profession.” Her speech was in conjunction with the 11th National Real Estate Awards and Gala Dinner in One World Hotel. I would like to wish that her wish will come true. I was honoured to be invited to the gala dinner and let me just say that the real estate agents and negotiators are all dressed to their best to celebrate the winners of the night. They came from all over Malaysia and I could feel the camaraderie too even if they were all from different agencies.

Personally, I believe the most important thing which could and should happen would be the actions against any real estate brokers without REN Tags. Zuraida said, “It has been brought to my attention that real estate practise requires the Real Estate Negotiators to be certified and if they don’t have a REN Tag, they are breaking the law if they sell any properties.” Let’s hope some concrete actions will happen in the near future. The newly minted MIEA President Lim Boon Ping said that this will be his utmost important agenda for his term. Now, let’s read thought the winners of the night followed by the official press release by MIEA right after. Happy selling.

Recognizing the top performers of real estate at the 11th National Real Estate Awards

Petaling Jaya, 27th July: Giving acclaim to one’s peers is a genuine acknowledgement of success and this was no different for the over 800 members of the real estate fraternity during the 11th National Real Estate Awards and Gala Dinner (NREA) 2019. Celebrating the nation’s top real estate performers, the gala dinner was held at the prestigious One World Hotel.

Reflective of the Award, “Recognizing the Gold Standards of the Industry”, the award celebrates the efforts of both real estate practitioners and firms which had raised industry standards by upholding professionalism, integrity and accountability in that year.

NREA 2019 organizing chairman, Kelvin Yip said that since the NREA’s debut in 2009, the awards have grown to be the country’s premier, most recognizable real estate award.

“This year proved no exception with a record-breaking 58 submissions from practitioners. The already stringent judging process was also further strengthened to ensure that our winners are truly the best of the best,” Yip added.

A total of 20 categories, from 16 last year, were hotly contested this year. One of the new award categories was the Most Tech-Savvy Real Estate Firm which was awarded to JLL Property Services (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd in recognition of their efforts to leverage technology to digitize as well as innovate to promote their offerings.

New categories for 2019 also included the State Residential REN of the Year, State Commercial REN of the Year and State Industrial REN of the Year.

“An effort has been made to recognize the accomplishments of our real estate negotiators at the state level as they draw upon their deep understanding of the area and community to deliver impressive results,” Yip added.

Apart from that, two of the most notable awards, Lifetime Achievement Awards was presented to Past President Mr Thinahara Kumar from Richinprop, while CEO of the Year was awarded to Mr Sarkunan Subramaniam from Knight Frank Malaysia Sdn Bhd.

During the prestigious ceremony, outgoing president of MIEA, Eric Lim officially handed over leadership to Lim Boon Ping, a 20-year real estate veteran and Director of Training and Development at Kim Realty.

In his speech, Eric said that it was an honour to have led the oldest and largest real estate association in Malaysia to promote high quality service and maintain high ethical standards in this industry. He believes that the new president will continue to guide MIEA to even greater heights and tackle issues such as illegal brokers.

MIEA’s new president (Year 2019- 2021) Lim Boon Ping said during his speech that the National Real Estate Awards not only upholds the golden standards and recognizes the industry’s crème de la crème but it also promotes professionalism, not only amongst the awards winners but throughout the real estate fraternity.

“The awards have become a symbol of aspiration. An ever-improving standard that challenges the members of our fraternity to continuously deliver excellence and innovation,” said Boon Ping.

The preferred automotive partner for the awards night was Sime Darby Auto Bavaria Sdn Bhd (BMW) with Property Guru International (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, Triterra Metropolis Sdn Bhd and MRCB (Malaysian Corporation Resources Berhad) as award sponsors. Partners included Maybank, Emkay Group, OCBC Bank and Central Spectrum (M) Sdn Bhd and Nextdor Property Communications as public relations partner.
