Bridge Estate may not be the oldest real estate agency in Thailand, but the firm has quickly made a name for itself. Today, it is one of the most trusted companies in the real estate industry with the firm’s hard work recently recognized at the Dot Property Thailand Awards 2020.
You can tell a lot about the character of a company from the name it selects. This is no different for Bridge Estate with its name serving as a constant reminder of the agency’s mission. The company strives to bridge the gap in the real estate industry by building relationships, connecting people and delivering an unprecedented level of service throughout the entire transaction and thereafter.
In order to accomplish these ambitious goals, the agency needed an approach that wasn’t being offered in Thailand.
“Our relentless passion and personal commitment are what distinguishes us from others. Our mission is to offer each and every client a worry-free experience by providing the fully integrated service in real estate, sell or purchase transaction and tenancy management,” Khun Pitchakorn Meesak (Jarn), Bridge Estate Managing Director, tells Dot Property.
Bridge Estate was established in 2019 but the team boasts more than 15 years of experience in the property sector. It utilizes this experience and knowledge to offer a full range of real estate services.
“We are a team of highly-experienced professionals with skills and passion. Our expertise is in providing efficient sales and marketing strategies. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive solutions for both local and international homeowners, investors and tenants,” Khun Jarn says.
From inquiry to aftersales service, Bridge Estate is truly bridging the gap for international clients, helping them navigate the Thai market. The company has developed several programs that allow it to efficiently carry out its goals. These include Bridge More, a property care management program that streamlines the post-transaction experience.
“The Bridge More service is for both leisure and business clients in Thailand. Our service can be tailored upon clients’ needs and requirements, covering all aftersales services from transfer of ownership to leasing and resales,” Khun Jarn details. “In essence, we enable you to do more with your time by providing comprehensive, hassle-free property care that includes a furniture and interior decoration service along with management solutions.”
This is something that is extremely important for overseas property buyers, a group Bridge Estate has a lot of experience working with. In fact, one reason Khun Jarn launched Bridge Estate was in order to help facilitate cross-border real estate transactions.
“Bridge Estate was founded to respond to the growing demand of cross-border real estate transactions throughout Thailand, across both inbound and outbound investment channels,” Khun Jarn explains. “Managed by a team of established industry professionals from both the developer and agency sides, we strive to create high success levels for our clientele based on our decades of execution experience in local and international markets.”
Client success is something valued very highly by the entire team at Bridge Estate. The agency is committed to making the process as smooth as possible for both investors and end users.
“We strive to reach high levels of success for our clients, based on our decades of execution experiences in local and international markets. We can generate revenue from property investment while guaranteeing the best condition of the property is maintained. Investors can enjoy the full benefits of a hassle-free investment,” Khun Jarn notes. “The result is delivering “best of the best” service and the highest possible success rate for all our clients.”
A milestone achievement
One of the biggest milestones for any real estate agency is becoming the sole agent for a marquee development. Usually sole agent partnerships are reserved for brand name consultancies. However, leading Thai developer SC Asset selected Bridge Estate to be the sole agent of 28 Chidlom, an iconic luxury freehold condominium in the heart of Bangkok.
For a developer the size of SC Asset to trust Bridge Estate is truly a sign that the agency is among Thailand’s elite. And for Bridge Estate, being the sole agent of 28 Chidlom allows them to exclusively offer clients residences in a landmark Bangkok development.
“What impresses me the most about 28 Chidlom is that it manifests SC Asset’s top standard of excellence to offer high-class living facilities. It is the destination for a perfect home and ideal for long-term lease because it offers the best. The best location in Bangkok, the best amenities, the best living experience and the best possible investment,” Khun Jarn says.
The project is built on one of the last land plots in the Chit Lom area which means property values will increase over time if history is any indication. In 2006, Central Group acquired part of the British Embassy on the nearby Phloen Chit Road for THB900,000 per square wah. More than a decade later the Thai retail giant acquired the remainder of the land for THB2 million per square wah.
Citing the 110 percent land price increase at a site less than 500 meters away, Khun Jarn believes 28 Chidlom will see outstanding rental returns and capital gains. It may also be the last opportunities for the public to own a freehold residence in Chit Lom which will support price growth further. However, the luxury condominium has a lot more going on beside its outstanding location.
“28 Chidlom has been designed to be one of the Chit Lom area’s most iconic landmarks. It has a rare, ‘Jewel box’ façade design that makes it stand out from other nearby projects. There are also world-class facilities along with 5-star concierge services that will delight those living here,” Khun Jarn points out.
And while the project is iconic from the outside, the interior design is just as appealing. It starts with the “Urban Oasis” concept that sees the majority of the ground floor area dedicated to green spaces. This greenery has been crafted so it connects to the interiors and can be experienced from everywhere.
The loft-style design of units at 28 Chidlom means all residences have a ceiling height of at least three meters. Additionally, all units were meticulously designed to ensure optimal space usage. Each one comes fully fitted with premium materials that help combine function and design.
Residences also come with full-height windows that allow natural sunlight to shine through while providing breathtaking views of Bangkok. The latest in window technology has been used to ensure residents are insulated against heat and noise. All of the features have been incorporated into every last unit to guarantee those living here will always have the best in privacy and comfort.
Becoming the best
For Bridge Estate, being named as one of Thailand’s Best Real Estate Agencies at the Dot Property Awards Thailand 2020 was another sign the company is moving in the right direction.
“We are proud to be awarded as Thailand’s Best Real Estate Agencies at the Dot Property Awards Thailand 2020. In fact, this is the second consecutive year we have won the award,” Khun Jarn notes.
Of course, Bridge Estate has no plans to rest on its previous accomplishments despite an award-winning pedigree. The firm is already looking to build upon this success in order to offer its clients the absolute best moving forward.
“At Bridge Estate, we aim to provide the best living solutions for clients whether they’re searching for a dream home or need fully managed investment for their properties. Our goal is not to be just another hit-and-run agency, but to be one of the most trusted agencies for clients and developers in the long term,” Khun Jarn proclaims.
