"To have our company recognised as the top commercial real estate firm in the industry is a very proud moment for the whole JLL team. This award is specially dedicated to them as they deserve all the credit for this great achievement."

"It is, of course, a personal honour for me to receive the real estate agent of the year award. I have worked in real estate in Malaysia for more than 20 years now. I want to also thank my family and clients, for their continued support, guidance and trust in the JLL team and in me. Remember what matters: joy, love and laughter."
