Following RE/MAX Malta’s successes in the 2008 and 2009 International Property awards the company was inducted as members of the LIAD, which is an elite group of Leading International Agents and Developers. Furthermore, for the second year running RE/MAX Malta won the 2009 Best Real Estate agency and 2009 Best Real Estate Agency Website awards. The awards were presented at a Gala dinner held at the London Marriot Hotel last month.
Being a member of the LIAD broadens RE/MAX Malta’s network of real estate agencies. Through this network RE/MAX Malta will have easy access and communication with all award winners from the various regions of Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa, Arabia and the Americas.
The International Property Awards, which this year were co-organised and backed by CNBC, The New York Times, The Daily Mail, The Sydney Morning Herald, Bangkok Post and the Sin Chew Daily are the most prestigious awards programme dedicated to finding the best real estate professionals across the globe. Every company entry is judged by a large panel of professionals whose collective knowledge of the property industry is second to none and unsurpassed by any other property awards.
The awards are open to real estate professionals that are able to submit a comprehensive document and presentation based on the particular award topic they are entering. RE/MAX Malta’s Best Real Estate agency’s submission consisted of a comprehensive document highlighting all company’s operations and procedures together with the marketing strategies being adopted both locally and overseas. The Best Real Estate Agency Website submission consisted of a detailed document highlighting the technical and marketing efforts of the Company’s website. The submission was judged by the panel which included representatives of the largest search engine company in the world, Google.
This year’s judges included Ben Wood, industry head property markets of Google UK; Peter Bolton King, group chief executive of the National Federation of Property Professionals; Imtiaz Farookhi, chief executive of the National House Building Council; Christopher Hall, president elect of FIABCI; Wilhelm Harnish, Master Builders of Australia (MBA); Thijs Stoffer, International Consortium of Real Estate Agents Association (ICREA); Helen Shield, editor-in-chief of International Homes magazine and Gillian Farr, head of design of Laura Ashley Home.
RE/MAX Malta’s Regional Director, Jeff Buttigieg said that “We were extremely proud to have won these awards amongst stiff opposition from other real estate agencies in Malta. This underlines that RE/MAX Malta commitment and leadership in the Maltese real estate market.”
