The 8th PropertyGuru Philippines Awards is spearheaded by the PropertyGuru Group, dubbed “Southeast Asia’s pioneering and most trusted property technology company.” The company aims to address pain points when it comes to homeownership, and through Asia Property Awards (under which is the PropertyGuru Philippines Awards), it aims to recognize, reward, and celebrate the biggest achievers in real estate development in Asia. 

The event is a much-awaited date in the real estate industry calendar, with key business decision-makers and esteemed trade and consumer media in virtual attendance.

SMDC also bagged the Best Lifestyle Developer Award. 

In the design category, Sail Residences was the runaway winner with Best Landscape and Best Condo Architectural Design awards.

Fern at Grass Residences bagged the Best Lifestyle Development Award. Park Residences was named Best Condo Development (Luzon) and Charm Residences took home the Best Mid-End Condo Development Award for Metro Manila.

In the Design category, the following properties were Highly Commended: S Residences (Best Condo Architectural Design, Best Condo Interior Design and Best Landscape Architectural Design); Sail Residences and Shore 3 Residences (Best Condo Interior Design). 

“To be recognized by an esteemed organization such as PropertyGuru, to be counted among the best, is already something that we are proud of,” SMDC President Jose Mari Banzon was quoted as saying. “It is a validation that we have indeed turned our vision into reality, that we are contributing to building a nation of homeowners; not just any home, but a home that allows the homeowner to live his best life.”

To the PropertyGuru organization, Banzon has only words of gratitude. 

“Thank you for giving recognition to the real estate industry’s efforts to give Filipinos the best value for their hard-earned money with homes that provide the best possible living experience.”

SMDC will be representing the Philippines at the 2020 Asia Property Awards to be held virtually on Dec. 5.
