A group of local property agents has initiated a monthly gathering for real estate professionals and those interested in the industry to meet and share business ideas and industry insights. 

The first of the monthly gatherings, known as Real Estate Monday, was held this week at the Park Café Calmette, and included talks from local property luminaries including Cheng Kheng, the CEO of CPL Cambodia, and Kuy Vat, the CEO of VTrust Properties.

Other local companies involved with Real Estate Monday include Bonna Realty, Key Real Estate and Asia Real Estate Cambodia.  

The organisers of the event, which will be held on the first Monday of every month, said that for too long, real estate companies in Cambodia “have worked on their own projects without knowing what needs improving… to better benefit from the lucrative industry.”

The gathering intends to act as “a platform for active real estate players and related business bodies to provide ideas and share experiences in order to find out ways to boost this economic driver.”

As well as the notable speakers, Monday night also saw a presentation from a mortgage expert from ANZ Royal on providing finance to potential homeowners.

As well as boosting the local property industry, the gathering aims to involve everyone in examining how the industry, which “plays a key role in shaping society… can contribute to making our neighbourhoods, our cities and our societies better.” 

Details of upcoming meetings, which are open to all interested participants, are available on Real Estate Monday Facebook page
