Recently promoted to Associate Director, Noel Loh collaborates very closely with Stephen Bruce, leading the Asset Management business within the Real Estate Management Services team.
How long have you been in the real estate industry, and how did you come to join Colliers?
I started working for Colliers 13 years ago as a Building Manager in Changi Business Park, which Union Investment Real Estate GmbH previously owned. The industry is fast-moving which also means I have never managed to be bored.
"With digitalisation revolutionising the industry, the next 13 years will be even more exciting!"
Tell us a bit about your role and what do you find most fulfilling about your job?
I now lead the Asset Management business within Real Estate Management Services. My role involves looking after multiple classes of assets, ranging from Industrial, Office and Retail. It is not always an easy task as it needs a lot of juggling between many different accounts, but being able to quickly respond to our clients and efficiently resolve some operation issues is very rewarding.
I have always enjoyed the project management part of my job, and I love getting involved in the day-to-day operations side. As we plan to grow our Asset Management business, the future will be promising, and there will be plenty of career growth opportunities for my team and me.
What is the biggest piece of advice you would like to give your clients?
My biggest piece of advice is to ensure clear, open and honest communication with your Asset Manager at all times. This is a partnership, and our role as experts is to improve the efficiency of your assets by minimising disruptions, anticipating issues and creating optimised solutions.
What asset classes are you currently looking after and what is next?
Our portfolio is currently weighted towards industrial assets – however, we are looking to develop further into the office market. We understand that each asset is unique. While assets can look similar on the surface, they host special features from materials, equipment, size, technical requirements, and tenant expectations.
