For the second consecutive year, Colliers International has been voted by clients as the winner of the Best Property Advisory/Consultancy in the REIW Asia Awards of Excellence 2014, one of the region’s most prestigious honours for real estate firms. The awards recognise companies that make outstanding contributions to the Asian real estate industry in terms of their growth, performance and adaptability to changing market conditions and client needs.
John Marasco, Managing Director of Capital Markets and Investment Services at Colliers International Australia, attributed Colliers’ success to an uncompromising focus on client service. “We remain focused on our clients as we provide them with invaluable expertise and exceptional service,” said Mr Marasco. “Clients rely on Colliers’ specialists to deliver innovative solutions, taking into consideration the worldwide marketplace. Our team in Australia is closely aligned with our colleagues in Asia and across the globe in order to be able to offer our clients the best advice and greatest array of opportunities.”
As Colliers looks to retain their leading real estate consultancy position and institutionalise their cross-border platform, they have made significant internal changes to support this drive. The newly-restructured Asia Capital Markets and Investment Services Division and focused Outbound Capital Team allow Colliers’ consultants to effectively guide clients in making investments in regions outside of Asia, allowing Asian clients to tap into the increasingly global nature of capital and net higher returns. Providing access to a range of property experts across the globe enables Asian investors to benefit from the combined expertise of Colliers International’s subject matter experts, all of whom know their markets and specialisations intrinsically.
“We are extremely pleased to receive this award for the second year running,” says Piers Brunner, Chief Executive Officer, Asia. "We strengthened our capital markets and investment services platform last year with an integrated team of specialists across the globe. They are well-positioned to connect capital and opportunities across the world. Winning this award again this year is a clear signal that our clients and the market has responded positively to our defined strategy. With our long history of successful real estate consultancy in Asia, and our commitment to enhancing our expertise in a wide array of sectors, we look forward to another great year.”
