Jones Lang LaSalle Portugal awarded «Best International Commercial Property Agency» 2009

Company had already won the National and European awards

After being awarded at the national and European levels, Jones Lang LaSalle Portugal won the global award in the category of «Best Commercial Property Agency» '2009, being one of the ultimate winners of this year’s International Property Awards in association with CNBC Arabiya. This is one of the most prestigious competitions of the global real estate industry, recognizing the best professionals in the sector internationally.

Manuel Puig, Managing-Director of Jones Lang LaSalle Portugal, commented: "We were awarded «Best Commercial Property Agency» 2009 in Portugal, Europe and globally. We could not be, in fact, more satisfied, contributing to the recognition of Jones Lang LaSalle and its team, but also proving that the Portuguese professionals are amongst world's best in an industry that is increasingly competitive, selective and demanding. "

Results were announced in November 12th, in the US Grant Hotel, San Diego, California, USA. Only the top scoring winners from no less than 105 countries were nominated to represent the finest property companies from across the UK, Europe, Africa, Americas, Arabia and Asia Pacific.

Entrants are initially judged at country or regional level. All in all, there are 36 different categories and up to two of the most outstanding entries in each category are given a four-star award, while the best overall entry is given a five-star. Every five-star winner’s entry is then re-examined to determine which companies go forward to be re-judged for the ultimate World’s Best Award. This symbol of worldwide excellence is already recognised and appreciated by the public who are becoming increasingly well informed and discerning about the properties they buy.

Entries were judged by a panel of 52 independent professionals whose collective knowledge of the property industry is unsurpassed by any other property awards. The International property Awards are also supported by 12 professional bodies such as the National House Builders Council, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the National Association of Estate Agents and many of these are represented on the judging panel.
