Melbourne-based property developer sets up Malaysian office

Melbourne-based SPEC Property has opened an office in Malaysia, to mark its maiden foray into the Asean region. Robert Evans, its International Business Manager, noted that the opening of the Pan-Asean SPEC Property office was timely considering the growing number of customers from this region that are residing in Melbourne.

“We hugely value our share of buyers and we felt the time is right to open a Pan-Asean office to better serve our customers in Malaysia and the region,” he said.

“Instead of being represented by agents, where possible we prefer to personally engage with our buyers.”

The property developer said it targets to tap Malaysia's rising demand for Australian properties as the increasingly wealthy populace scour for potential investment opportunities in quality homes in Melbourne – which is popular among Malaysians for its lifestyle and education.

“Melbourne currently hosts the largest diaspora of Malaysians in Australia,” it noted.

According to Brandon Ho, who is responsible for Malaysian operations, the company's local office is located at The Curve in Mutiara Damansara, offering property management services, in which future and current homeowners will be able to remotely manage their acquisitions.
