MANILA, Philippines – Premier developers, architects, interior designers and real estate agents across the globe are eagerly awaiting the announcement of the winners of the hotly contested International Property Awards. Having won at national and regional level, the next stage of the competition is for the top-scoring winners from each category to take on the world by competing against one other. Companies represented their respective regions in the grand final — Asia Pacific, Africa, Europe, Middle East, UK, Canada, Caribbean, Central & South America and the USA. Following a further scrutiny by the judges, the ultimate World’s Best in each category in the grand final at the J W Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel in London last Dec. 7.

The Philippines and Asia Pacific was represented at the World’s Best Lettings Agency Awards — through CBRE Philippines, which won the Asia Pacific Best Lettings Agency earlier on this year. CBRE Philippines competed against regional winners Global Investment Properties for Africa, Smith & Ken for Arabia, and Aidan J Reed for UK. CBRE Philippines is the only joining company from the Philippines to have successfully made it at both the Asia Pacific and World Categories.

Rick Santos, chairman and founder of CBRE Philippines said, “We are proud to represent the country to this prestigious award-giving body. Our success is an indication that the Philippine property market is thriving. This has been the best market I have experienced in my 20 years in the industry.”

The International Property Awards are the world’s most prestigious property competition and cover residential as well as commercial categories.

The judges are not only looking for the most impressive and innovative projects, they are also examining the sustainability and eco-friendliness of every property and development that comes under their scrutiny.

Yesterday , we concluded the handover of our unit located on the 27/F of Philamlife Tower. It was a relief that we finally have access and can proceed with our minor refurbishments. Finally an official announcement can be given to our Engineers who really deserve a better facility that they can call their own.

Much of this good news and feelings of self-achievements of getting this unit would not be possible without your help and that of you most gallant employees, Mr. Francis Bautista and Mr. Philipp Llave.

Initially our head office in San Francisco was not in favor to get our own unit and moving out of Regus because of the initial capital outlay it represented. Eventually we were granted approval to start the search on the condition that it would be a tail-end of an existing lease, with no capital outlay needed for fit-out, cabling and furniture on our part. Knowing what the real estate market in the Philippines is like and our prior experience in finding office space, the situation proved very challenging, if not frustrating for us.

But with their professionalism, persistence and unique knowledge of the market, Francis and Philipp were able to find us a unit that fit the specifications of our head and negotiate a deal that was beneficial to us. To sweeten the deal further, the space they provided is just a few floors away from our existing office thus making it an easier transition for us.

Bottom line, what I am trying to say is “THANK YOU” to both most especially to Francis who’s been very instrumental on all my needs in terms of office spaces.

Keep up the good work guys!
