A philosopher by the name of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel once said that nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.
I concur that with passion, topped with determination, we can achieve anything we set out to do. As such, we have embodied this into our core values, where we ensure that we remain passionate in our words and actions while aiming for excellence.
This success was evidenced by the fact that in 2011, we helped millions of property buyers across our four portals search for their dream home or next property investment, be it locally or internationally. This phenomenal success was also seen with our agents who have successfully grown and taken their business to greater heights. Aside from that, the iProperty Group has been instrumental in providing a highly effective platform for hundreds of developers across the region promote their developments.
So, in 2012, you can be assured that we will continue to focus on providing consumers with the best experience when searching for property on either one of our four portals. We are also committed to being long term partners with the real estate industry in successfully growing their businesses while we increase our focus on providing integrated digital marketing solutions to the ever burgeoning property developer market across the region.
In lieu of that, in Hong Kong, the team held their annual dinner for customers and the event was well attended.
On a separate note, in my previous blog, I stated that we recently released the findings of our iProperty.com Asia Property Market Sentiment Report 2012. The survey, conducted across our four portals in Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Singapore, revealed that Asians were very keen on investing in properties overseas, with many citing migration, favorable currency rates and economic slowdown as reasons for their interest.
The findings of the survey further reinforced our desire to provide property buyers with a platform to search for properties overseas with greater ease and accessibility. With that, we launched an International section on each of the portals that we have. This new channel will not only serve the needs of local property buyers but will also provide property developers and agents, outside of the Group’s core markets easy access to investors in Asia.
With our unrivaled reach to Asia’s largest online property audience, the new channel will set the benchmark for the way property developers and agents reach their potential investors. It will also offer them a platform to engage with Asian investors in the most cost effective and highly efficient manner.
So if you are on the hunt for properties overseas, do visit http://www.iproperty.com.sg/international/
On a more fun note, today marks Employee Appreciation Day across the globe, which occurs annually on the first Friday of the month of March.
So to all employees across the iProperty Group, I would like to thank you for your passion, determination, commitment and dedication in taking the Group to higher levels. It’s because of you, we have achieved many milestones.
Enjoy the weekend!
