GuocoLand won the titles of Best Luxury Developer, Best Sustainable Developer, and Best Mixed Use Developer, in addition to two Special Recognitions. Meyer Mansion, a project by GuocoLand, won the highly competitive title of Best Condo Development (Singapore), plus two awards.

Yong was honoured for modernising Aurum Land into a true space and business innovator and contributing to Singapore’s co-sharing economy.

Michelle Yong said: “I believe that what matters most in life is the depth of your relationships and the sheer number of people you have helped along the way—it is the true measure of wealth—and that as business leaders, we have the privilege and duty to impact so many more people more deeply. I hope to live up to the legacy of this award and its past recipients by continuing to lead from the heart and build supportive environments that create change, advance communities, and accelerate growth.”

Hari V Krishnan, CEO and managing director of PropertyGuru Group, said: “Congratulations to the finest real estate developers and projects in Singapore this year. The recipients of these Awards show how Singaporean developers continue to offer an increasing variety of dream homes, especially in terms of luxury, wellness, and environment. We hope that by recognising these great projects, PropertyGuru will be able to ease the decision-making process for property seekers in Singapore.”
