More developers from China will be put under the limelight at the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, after the organiser of the prestigious event inked an exclusive partnership deal with Chinese online marketplace’s real estate arm, Anjuke.

“Being Asia’s most reputed and trusted property awards, it is only befitting that we expand this platform to China. As Southeast Asia’s largest online property company, it was a natural choice for us to partner with China’s leading online marketplace and their leading property business,” said Hari V.

“Partnering with PropertyGuru allows us to promote the best of what mainland Chinese real estate developers have to offer at pan-Asia’s leading property awards platform,” said Anjuke’s COO Jeff Ye.

“This represents the next stage of the Asia Property Awards programme, as it continues to give residents of Asian countries more choice of quality homes than they have ever had before,” noted Terry Blackburn, founder and managing director of PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards.

Aside from promoting Asia’s top property developments, the exclusive partnership also aims to connect Chinese buyers to fast-growing real estate markets in the region.

Previously, developers from Greater China, including the mainland, Hong Kong and Macau were first recognised at the awards in 2014. Then in 2017, award categories from these places were incorporated into the Grand Final ceremony.

Nominations of developers from mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau for the 2018 awards are now being accepted until 17 August via this website.
