The voice of PH property seekers

/ 04:50 AM October 26, 2019

Lamudi has gathered a venerable list of real estate industry leaders to prepare for The Outlook Awards 2019, co-presented by the Property Section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer and Holcim.

We tapped an independent panel of judges composed of respected personalities in the Philippine real estate industry to shortlist the submissions in each category. Each member of the panel has served in various segments of the industry, lending us their discerning eye when choosing nominees that best fit the criteria for each award.


Shortlist of nominees

After all nominations have been submitted, they were evaluated and shortlisted by the panel of judges assigned to each category. The judges reviewed all nominations between June and July, with each entry getting a score based on predefined category-specific score sheets.


Lamudi invited the following personalities to be in the panel of judges:

Atty. Robert Nomar V. Leyretana, Deputy Administrator of the Land Registration Authority

Richard Raymundo, managing director of Colliers International Philippines

Kenneth Stern, country manager of RE/MAX Philippines

Platzer Georg, market development manager of Ikano Philippines Inc. and store manager of IKEA Pasay City

Arch. Amado P. de Jesus, vice chair of Philippine Green Building Initiative and principal architect, A. P. de Jesus & Associates

Tek Samaniego, Property editor of Philippine Daily Inquirer


Amy R. Remo, Property writing editor of Philippine Daily Inquirer

Dr. Eduardo Ong, former chair of Professional Regulatory Board for Real Estate Services

Leira Buan, Assistant Sec. of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council

James Buskowitz, CEO of Buskowitz Group

Rick Santos, chairman and CEO of Santos Knight Frank

Jason Buensalido, principal architect, chief design ambassador and founder of Buensalido+Architects

Each category’s customized scoresheet ensured that nominees were only evaluated given the criteria for the category they have been nominated in. The panel of judges determined the shortlist of nominees for the Condominium, House and Mixed-use award categories.

10,000 property seekers

We are now in the process of selecting the winners by conducting a survey with some 10,000 active property seekers on Lamudi as respondents, making each awardee truly the buyers’ choice in their respective categories. Each property seeker is located within and beyond the Philippines and has been chosen based on their search interests and activity on the Lamudi platform.

For the Special Awards, the panel of judges will determine the winners for each category.

The nominees that received the highest number of votes will be announced as the winners at The Outlook Awards Gala slated on the evening of November 14 at the Makati Shangri-La.
