She also commented that in recent years the importance and development of electronic marketing, particularly the website was integral to the results and performance obtained.
CBRE colleagues in the region also competed in the awards and the Philippines office – which entered for the first time – received four 5-star awards out of four entries and went on to win the Best Lettings Agency in Asia Pacific.
