Malaysia’s best-selling property magazine, Property Insight has revealed its inaugural ‘Malaysia’s Top 100 Property Developer Brand’ ranking in collaboration with Acorn Marketing & Research Consultants (M) Sdn Bhd (Acorn Marketing).

The synergy between Property Insight which is a bimonthly publication under Armani Media Sdn Bhd and Acorn Marketing is fruitful with the launch of the first-of-its-kind ranking that lists the top 100 local property developers.
This was based on the feedbacks received from a survey that was given to over 700 respondents who had no affiliation to any property developer brand involved in the ranking.
Managing Director of Property Insight, Dato’ KK Chua says, the ranking can be used as a benchmark for property purchasers to have confidence and peace of mind before they decide to purchase any property.
“In this competitive and challenging time, any developer that do not have a strong brand will struggle to keep things going. “Hence, we believe in the importance of telling the brand story as it is the best way for the client to recall the brand and resonate it,” he says.
