Real estate leaders share their insights with Dot Property Group
Khun Tanyatip (Tanya) Chearavanont – CEO and Founder ONE.SIX Development
At first, I was adamant about sticking to my core beliefs. That being said, talking to the market softened my views. I want to push the boundaries of real estate, but I also need to find a compromise. It is necessary to understand where the market is at and how it will adapt to changing preferences. We want to build projects that will always be in demand. Our focus isn’t on quantity and that means we have the freedom to pursue our passions.

Dr. (HC) Ir. Ciputra – Founder and Chairman Ciputra Development
Entrepreneurship is a life science that can be applied in various sectors, one of which is property. I built Ciputra Group into the large company it is today through three philosophies: Integrity, Professionalism and Entrepreneurship. This is commonly abbreviated as IPE. With entrepreneurial thinking, Ciputra Group has created spectacular projects that are beneficial to people while also driving the economic value of the region. This is where entrepreneurship can positively impact the property business.

James Claassen – Dot Property Group General Manager
Proppit allows property professionals to work smarter. One thing I have learned about the real estate industry in Southeast Asia since is that everyone is busy all the time. Yet, so many people spend a great deal of time on redundant tasks. Proppit eliminates that. You no longer have to post the same listing on six different websites, pay six different subscriptions and respond to leads on six different platforms. It can all be done here.
– James explains the benefits of Proppit, Dot Property Group’s newest innovation which launched in 2021. Read the full article here.
Pauline Chong – Principal at Cento Ventures
Proptech, to be placed in context, has lags behind the fintech revolution by almost a decade in Southeast Asia. One of the contributing reasons is that the real estate sector across Southeast Asia has enjoyed strong organic growth and the traditional way of doing things yielded good profits. This is quickly changing with rising financing costs and a cooling economic climate. There is now a strong incentive for real estate corporates and governments to invest in an improved way of delivering a better customer experience and improved productivity across the sector.

Bui Thi Thanh Huong – Vice Chairwoman and CEO of Sun Group
Compared with other countries in the region and around the world, Vietnam not only has advantages in natural resources but also in terms of its political and social stability. Moreover, in recent years, with the participation of major investors, including Sun Group, Vietnam’s tourism infrastructure has seen major investment in large scale developments that have expanded opportunities for tourism. The room for Vietnam’s tourism development is still very large; many fields remain open, yet to be adequately explored.

Nguyen Hoai Nam – CEO of Rolling Ant
The difference between our services and other digital/arch visualization is not about visuals. It is about how we stimulate the project and find ways to gamify the viewing experience. Our approach is to understand the unique selling point of a project and then create an emerging moment that captures it. Rolling Ant’s solution helps show them all perspectives at any time, from any angle. We cover the imagination gap for purchasers.
