For the second consecutive year, Colliers International has been voted by clients as the winner of the Best Property Advisory/Consultancy in the REIW Asia Awards for Excellence 2014, one of the region’s most prestigious honour for real estate firms.
The awards recognise companies that make outstanding contributions to the Asian real estate industry in terms of their growth, performance and adaptability to changing market conditions and client needs.
Mr Piers Brunner, Chief Executive Officer, Asia, Colliers International, attributed Colliers’ success to an uncompromising focus on client service. “We remain focused on our clients as we provide them with invaluable expertise and exceptional service,” says Mr Brunner. “Clients rely on Colliers’ specialists to deliver innovative solutions, taking into consideration the worldwide marketplace. This award signifies that our drive to grow and diversify in order to meet client needs is the right choice,” Mr Brunner adds.
As Colliers looks to retain their leading real estate consultancy position and institutionalise their cross-border platform, they have made significant internal changes to support this drive.
The newly-restructured Asia Capital Markets and Investment Services Division and focused Outbound Capital Team allow Colliers’ consultants to effectively guide clients in making investments in regions outside of Asia, allowing domestic clients to tap into the increasingly global nature of capital and net higher returns. In addition, Colliers has formed specialised teams, such as the Industrial Services and the Logistics, Warehouse and Transportation, to further sharpen their expertise in specific areas and solidify their standing as Asia’s most comprehensive real estate consultancy.
“We are extremely pleased to receive this award for the second year running,” says Mr Brunner. "We strengthened our capital markets and investment services platform last year with an integrated team of specialists across Asia. They are well-positioned to connect capital and opportunities across the world.
Winning this award again this year is a clear signal that our clients and the market has responded positively to our defined strategy. With our long history of successful real estate consultancy in Asia, and our commitment to enhancing our expertise in a wide array of sectors, we look forward to another great year.”
