Thailand’s best are celebrated at 2013 Thailand Property Awards

Thailand’s best are celebrated at 2013 Thailand Property Awards – Jones Lang LaSalle the biggest winner on the night scooping five awards

BANGKOK – Thailand’s real estate industry came together on Thursday 19th September to acknowledge the best of the best at the 2013 Thailand Property Awards gala dinner and awards presentation ceremony held at the Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Center at CentralWorld.

An engaging keynote address on sustainable design by award-winning architect and professor, Jason Pomeroy, followed opening remarks by Terry Blackburn, CEO of organisers Ensign Media, set the tone for an exciting evening of celebration.

Now in it’s eighth year, the awards organisers welcomed a new Chairman to the Judging Panel this year, Khun Sunchai Nuengsit, managing director of Buildersmart Public Company Limited, and recognising the evolving nature of the industry, introduced four new awards: Best Residential Development (Khao Yai), Best Villa Rental Agent, Best Villa Architectural Design and Best Villa Interior Design.

In total, 33 awards were on offer including regional awards for best condominiums and villa developments on the Eastern Seaboard, in Hua Hin, Phuket, Samui and Chiang Mai, as well as arguably the two most sought after awards: Best Developer Thailand and Best Boutique Developer Thailand, and for the third consecutive year Kalara Developments was crowned Best Boutique Developer Thailand.

Sansiri Public Company Limited scooped the prestigious Best Developer Thailand award, and acknowledging Sansiri’s success, the judging panel stated: “With 257 projects since 1984, Thailand’s Sansiri has introduced numerous innovations and advancements in the luxury villa and condominium sector, with customer satisfaction and lifestyle always at the core of the company’s impressive achievements.”

Jones Lang LaSalle took home five trophies in the Real Estate Services categories, winning Best Commercial Agent, Best Property Management Company (Bangkok), Best Property Management Company (Resort), Best Property Consultancy and Best Agency Deal
 for the sale of Laguna Phuket Beach Resort.

“The quality of nominations and entries this year was exceptional and have pushed the bar ever higher, showing the growth and diversity of Thailand’s robust real estate industry,” said Terry Blackburn, CEO, Ensign Media Co. Ltd, organisers of the awards.

The full list of Winners and Highly Commended developments and businesses, are listed below.

A thorough and rigorous judging process by an independent panel of judges, with oversight by BDO Advisory, evaluated a record number of nominations and entries this year. Those developments short-listed were then subject to site inspections before the judging panel submitted their list of Winners and Highly Commended developments and businesses to BDO Advisory for safe keeping.

“That the judges and the judging process is independent is paramount for us and has been the cornerstone to success for the awards since their inception eight years ago. BDO Advisory have again overseen the entire process from start to finish ensuring the judging process was undertaken fairly, without bias or favour,” added Blackburn.

The only award not to follow the same procedure is Real Estate Personality of the Year, which is decided upon by the editorial team at Property Report Magazine, who this year recognised Khun Sorapoj Techakraisri, CEO, PACE Development Corporation for his bold and contemporary vision of modern Bangkok encapsulated in the iconic MahaNakhon development.
