The 12th National Real Estate Awards (NREA), presented by the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA) is presented online live for the first time in its history due to the pandemic. Despite that, it received the highest number of submissions in its history – 62 – for 23 categories.
Two new categories were introduced in this year’s NREA, the first award category being the ASEAN Real Estate Firm of the Year. The Philippines category was awarded to Green Circle Realty, Inc whilst the Malaysia category was awarded to Hartamas Real Estate (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.
Another new category was the State Residential Firm of the Year which was awarded to Cornerstone Xstate Sdn Bhd for the Federal Territory; DeOne Properties Sdn Bhd for the state of Perak, InteRealtor Sdn Bhd for the state of Penang, Kozin Real Estate Sdn Bhd for the state of Sarawak and Property Hub (Sabah) Sdn Bhd for the state of Sabah.
