“This was the first time I had entered the awards and I was very impressed with the continuous support I received from my awards manager throughout the entry process. It certainly opened my eyes as to how important it is to understand your craft and follow instructions. I was not even thinking of winning as I was so pleased that I had been asked to submit an entry, so imagine my elation when I received the call to say I was a winner! This award has given me a huge stamp of approval, thank you for the opportunity to show the world my work and all that Viva Bella Designs are capable of achieving.”

AMBIENTE PROPERTIES was honoured to win an award for the first time in the category of Best Real Estate Agency (Single Office) for Macau at the 2018-19 Asia Pacific Property Awards, in association with Salice. The awards took place on the 3rd & 4th May 2018 at The Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, Bangkok.

Ambiente then competed against the best property professionals across the Asia Pacific region and were recognised with the 5 Star Award for Best Real Estate Agency in Macau.

From day one of our first contact with one of the International Property Awards managers, we received friendly, helpful telephone communication, and prompt follow up. When things were promised to be sent, sure enough, we received them usually on the same day. Efficient, pleasant, personalised communication – importantly not pushy in any way – it was a pleasure communicating with them and certainly gave us a sense that our entry was important and valued.

The awards ceremony was held at a super-convenient location, an excellent pick and we couldn’t fault the hotel facilities. The programme ran smoothly and on time. We also enjoyed meeting the IPA team members, who greeted and chatted with us warmly. The gala dinner was a first-class production in organisation, menu and set up. It was great to meet IPA president Stuart Shields, who is clearly passionate about making the company and its awards ‘best in breed’.

We are very impressed with IPA. And the proof is in the pudding: In 2018 Ambiente participated in one award category, in 2019 we are participating in three awards categories!
