The award was prompted by an understanding of the real estate landscape and what is demanded to take Malaysia forward as a desirable international property investment destination. Property investment is not just about buying a roof over one’s head. Neither is it about merely securing a business address. It is about creating value from one’s investment, especially at a time when prices are creeping up. One of the significant building blocks of value creation in a property lies in its upkeep and maintenance. There are specific roles and these must be played collectively by the authorities, developers, property managers, owners and consumers. It is through this Award that we aspire to create awareness and drive home the message of the importance of top-in-class management practices in Malaysia and, more importantly, what are required for this to be a reality. - TheEdgeProperty.com
