For the second year running, Land Sterling, a leading technology-enabled international property consulting firm with a presence in the UAE, KSA, and the UK, has been awarded the Property Consultancy Team of the Year Award at 2022’s Smart Built Environment Awards, organized by the CM today magazine and recently held as part of the Smart Built Environment Forum hosted at Address Marina, Dubai.
The Smart Built Environment Awards is a regional event that honours excellence in the management of buildings and communities, finding key performers in the management of the built environment in the four key sectors of facilities management, property management, community management and PropTech. Established in 2012, Land Sterling has evolved into a complete real estate service provider by deploying the best real estate professionals across all service lines, including project management, building surveying, valuations (property, plant and machinery), consulting, agency, and capital markets. The organization also won the prestigious award at the inaugural Smart Built Environment Forum awards event in 2021.
Hamza Betraoui, Managing Director of Land Sterling, spoke of his delight at winning the award, saying, “I am so pleased for the team receiving this well-earned award. They have endured one of the most challenging years in our industry. However, each team member went one step further to ensure that business was as usual despite COVID-19 restrictions, contributing positively to the company’s organic growth. Their commitment to our clients, business expansion, and dedication to following our vision to grow as a professional service provider in the real estate consultancy industry played a significant part in the company receiving this award. The fact that we won for the second time reinforces how successfully we compete and thrive in the region, exemplified by how we are strategically growing year on year and is a testimony to our constant ability to serve clients in the best possible way.“
