2000/2001 An innovative start

We established ourselves as Singapore’s largest real estate company with over 3,000 agents based in a massive 10,000 sqft office in Novena. We were also the first to initiate the dual-career path, an inventive commission scheme that gives team leaders a share of the company’s profits when achievement levels are met. First to introduce regular quarterly conventions that feature renowned international speakers. Agents with outstanding performances were also honoured.

2002/2003 Making history

It was a series of firsts for us, starting with being the first real estate agency in Singapore to be awarded Superbrands. Following that, we were the first and only real estate agency in the country to be awarded the National Skills Recognition System by Spring Singapore. During the IEA (Institute of Estate Agents) awards, we rewrote the record books by clinching more than 70% of the awards for top real estate achiever category, sweeping all the Top 3 Individual Producers and the Top Rookie Award. We rounded off the year on cloud nine by being the first real estate agency to achieve the SME 500 awards.

2004 Growing recognition

Recognising our need to go beyond the call of duty, we started offering 13 hours of daily services support—the only real estate company to do so. Professional Indemnity Insurance was also introduced, giving our clients more faith in our agents. Furthermore, our client-first vision inspired us to provide daily property listings on the Internet.

We then won the Highest Order of Merit in Media Portfolio’s Asia’s Top 1,000 brands. With our growing recognition comes a growing stature. So it was no surprise when we moved to the largest real estate mega office in HDB Hub. This was also the year CEO Mohamed Ismail received the Spirit of Enterprise Award, along with the SMCCI (Singapore Malay Chamber of Commerce & Industry) Entrepreneur of the year.

Though we placed a high emphasis on customer satisfaction, employee welfare was also a top priority. In fact, we were the real first estate company to organise a Mega Sports and Family Day that was attended by over 1,000 participants. Furthermore, we introduced the Healthy Lifestyle and IPPT Incentive for NS Men—rewarding agents who strove hard to stay in shape

2005 Rewriting the record books

We started the year on a high with the e50.startup Award and got successfully listed among Singapore’s Most Enterprising Startups. During IEA’s top real estate agent awards, we repeated our amazing feat of 2003 by capturing over 70% of the awards.

2006 The nation’s pillar

PropNex was the first and only real estate company that fielded a contingent to represent one of the two economic pillars at Singapore’s 41st National Day Parade—truly a patriotic milestone! It was the year when we were presented Meritorious Defence Partner Award, appeared in the SME 500 rankings and got accredited under the SAEA (Singapore Accredited Estate Agencies) Board, for the employment of agents who are all CEHA-certified (Common Examination for Housing Agents).

2007 Three in a row

For a third year running, PropNex captured more than 70% of IEA’s top real estate achiever awards. We also made it to the Singapore SME 500 rankings once again, coming in at number 117. By clinching the Promising Brand Award at Singapore’s Prestige Brand Award later on, we ended the year on a high yet again.

2008 Climbing up the rankings

Two of our companies made it to the Singapore SME 500 rankings: PropNex Corporation Pte Ltd and PropNex Realty Pte Ltd were ranked 83rd and 94th respectively.

To reflect our consumer-centric focus, we changed our tagline from “Singapore’s Largest Real Estate Company” to “Service You Trust”. Coincidentally in the same year, 60,000 independent consumers’ votes awarded us the coveted Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands Gold Award; one of only two winners in the inaugural Real Estate category.

It was a year of achievements for our CEO Mohamed Ismail as well. Not only did he win the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises’ Entrepreneur of the Year and Top Entrepreneur for eCommerce Award, he also clinched the Overall Indian Entrepreneur of the Year award (Large Enterprise) from the Singapore Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

P&N Holdings was also ranked 11th in the e50 award, the highest ranked real estate agency amongst the top 50 awards. This summed up the accolades achieved for the year.

2009 Earning consumers’s trust

The Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands Gold Award was in the bag yet again! And our continuous growth was again recognised, with a tremendously improved ranking of 5th for highest turnover sales in the Singapore SME 500 award while PN Realty was ranked at 163rd.

In addition, we came in 15th for the Enterprise 50 awards—earning the distinctive honour of being the only real estate agency to be ranked.

2010 A momentous occasion

For the third consecutive year, PropNex clinched The Gold award from the Readers’ Digest Trusted Brands Award.
