Strengthening ASEAN foothold with presence in Thailand

Fueled by the realisation that the ASEAN region’s population could significantly contribute to the real estate market with it reaching staggering values of over S$30 trillion[1] by 2024, PropNex embarked on its regional ASEAN expansion in 2016. It first began in Indonesia with offices in Surabaya and Jakarta, growing steadfastly into Batam, Bali, Bandung and other states.

The PropNex Indonesia Master franchises has grown its salesforce to close to 1,331* salespersons and is currently leading the primary market in Indonesia’s real estate industry.

Additionally, PropNex extended its reach to Cambodia, Vietnam, and Australia. In 2023, PropNex Malaysia was recognized with the most number of awards at the MIEA National Real Estate Awards. This expansion reflects PropNex’s strategy to leverage its strengths beyond Singapore’s borders, tapping into the burgeoning real estate markets across ASEAN countries.

This expansion is in line with the agency’s vision of developing qualified and professional real estate salespersons who have the knowledge and expertise to serve international clients. The sixth regional expansion (excluding Headquarters in Singapore) was propelled by a family of Thailand real estate practitioners – Ms Lynette Ping and Phantila Aon. Both of them are highly experienced and having years of experience in the real estate field in Thailand.

Thailand has indeed grown to be one of the leading choices of property investors today. Bangkok’s property market presents a unique landscape, marked by both challenges and opportunities. Amid Thailand’s post-Covid economic stabilization, Bangkok emerges as a promising investment hub, with escalating rental yields, reasonable property prices, and a vibrant cultural landscape. This dynamic blend of economic resilience and cultural richness renders the city highly appealing to foreign investors seeking secure real estate opportunities, including ownership of units in condominium buildings under the country’s Condominium Act.

On why she chose the PropNex Master Franchisee, CEO PropNex Thailand, Lynette Ping shared, “PropNex’s strong brand as the largest agency in Singapore alongside its reputation for professionalism and trusted service makes it the top choice for us. We believe that our Thailand salespersons will be able to benefit greatly from the programmes and activities conducted in Singapore, elevating their careers to the next level.” She also added that the core values of the PropNex management was also one of the strong factors which spurred him to enter the partnership with PropNex Singapore.

There are currently more than 500 salespersons whose main focus is new and resale residential projects at its 7,000 sqft office at Skyy9 Center (554 Thanon Asok – Din Daeng, Khwaeng Din Daeng, Din Daeng, Bangkok 10400, Thailand). These salespersons will get the chance to sharpen their skills through the agency’s signature programmes, such as the Salespersons and Leadership Bootcamp conducted in Singapore.
