The prestigious awards ceremony hosted numerous real estate industry professionals on a spectacular gala evening on a mission to give recognition and celebrate the highest levels of achievement, leadership and innovation by agents, negotiators and agencies in the real estate industry.

Guests were first treated to a performance by Grace Tan, who showcased her advanced technical abilities joined by classically trained ballerinas donning stunning LED illuminated tutus for a bespoke performance. Guests also enjoyed a showcase of immense talent by a group of extraordinary performers called The Nebula Stars. The performances were followed by an opening remark by Haresh Khoobchandani, CEO – REA Group, Malaysia & Singapore.
