KUALA LUMPUR (April 25): SCM Property Services Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UEM Sunrise Bhd, will be introducing a one-stop real estate management service concept in collaboration with eight real estate agencies.

With the one-stop concept, the property and facilities management company aims to offer value-added services, including tenancy management.

SCM Property signed a service agreement with the local real estate agencies today to provide the one-stop real estate management services to UEM Sunrise Bhd’s existing and potential customers as well as to residents and owners of SCM Property managed-properties.

The eight agencies are Kiara Realty, Reapfield Properties Sdn Bhd, Metro Homes Sdn Bhd, Worldmart Properties, Esprit Estate Agent Sdn Bhd, CBD Properties Sdn Bhd, Cityspace Properties and Asian Land Realty Sdn Bhd.

With this collaboration, SCM is now set to provide a systematic and complete range of professional services, which includes building management, maintenance, security, insurance management, renovation management, capital improvements and customer service in its capacity as a property and facilities management service provider, said UEM Sunrise managing director and CEO Anwar Syahrin at the signing ceremony today.

“The service agreements with our preferred real estate agencies is an important step towards catering to the overarching needs of our stakeholders and I’m confident that our residents and customers will see the value of this one-stop offering,” he added.

The one-stop management services cover tenancy management, repair and maintenance, billing and payment, renovation, cleaning services, floor and wall polishing, air-conditioning, plumbing and electrical services.

UEM Sunrise COO Raymond Cheah noted that SCM has already been in the market for 40 years, while UEM Sunrise has been in the market for 51 years. SCM is now managing over 90% of UEM Sunrise’s properties.

The company currently manages 22 developments or 10,000 units of properties, from residential to commercial projects in the Klang Valley.

“By end of this year, there will be another 2,000 units or three to five projects in the Klang Valley, either developed by UEM Sunrise or other developers, to be managed by SCM,” he said.

SCM’s property and facilities management general manager Paul Richard said the company has received a number of enquiries requesting for SCM to manage their properties and the company has recently signed up two new developments.

On its property management fees, he said it will be on a project basis and the fee will depend on development density and services required.

The tie-up with the real estate agencies also enables SCM to access a wider customer base to help owners search for quality tenants.

He noted that the company will consider increasing the number of real estate agencies in the future.

Meanwhile, SCM also previewed its one-stop online portal — iSCM — which enables users to book facilities, make announcements, make payments and provide feedback online.

SCM was one of the winners at TheEdgeProperty.com Malaysia’s Best Managed Property Awards 2017. The award-winning projects were Mercu Summer Suites, 28 Mont’Kiara and Solaris Dutamas.
