I had a positive experience using Yong Yap Properties to locate an apartment in Phnom Penh. I first saw some rental units on the website and contacted the representative. Yong Yap was quick in responding to my emails. On arrival to a city I have never been, Yong Yap showed great patience in showing me many rooms until I found the right fit. I feel they went above and beyond with after service support. Yong Yap helped me establish an internet connection in my room, coordinated a crew to clean and repair any problems the day after I moved in.
Staff at Yong Yap even took my on a tour of my neighborhood while pointing out great places to eat or get groceries.
I don’t think I could find a better local property agency. I have no reservations on recommending them and using their expertise again in the future.
I would just like to express my appreciation, gratitude and thanks for the attention and service I received from Yong Yap in finding my new apartment.
I have lived in Phnom Penh for 5 years and between language barrier and not knowing all the ins-and-outs of the real estate market it can be very difficult to find a place you really enjoy and are happy to live. Yong Yap helped me do that!
I reached out to see if they had any places matching my requirements. Within 30 minutes they had arranged for me to see the place I now live in. My personal agent was professional, attentive and informative. She met me and showed me the apartment, as expected. When I said I would think about it we said our thanks and left the property. Once I was back to my office, I set my mind to take the apartment and immediately called her back to the property. THIS IS WHAT I APPRECIATE, she did not give me any grief for making her drive all over town again, I believe it was about 5pm so end of the day traffic and all that.
Anyway, just wanted to reach out and say “Job well done”. I appreciate the friendly and knowledgeable service.
I hope I don’t have to move anytime soon, but if I do, I will certainly reach out to Yap Properties for their fine staff service.
Thanks you again! Facebook like forthcoming… =)
Yong Yap has gone above and beyond what I expected from a real estate agent. I especially like Yong Yap’s quick response time and would gladly use their services again. Working with Yong Yap is easy and enjoyable, their professional service, commitment to my goals and personalities really made it easier to manage my property. I have already Yong Yap to my friends.”
My fiancée and I were very pleased with the service we received from Yong Yap when finding an apartment in Phnom Penh. Desmond and Rain were both helpful every step of the way and we are delighted with the apartment we found through the agency. It was really nice of Rain to assist us with the gas man, especially after 5pm on a Sunday!

It is hard to find a place in PP that met my criteria. The team at Yong Yap were able to show me properties the met most my needs. I like that you have pictures of the properties to view before going to the actual property. It saves time. I have used other agencies before and your agency made the process so much easier that I would definitely recommend Yong Yap to my friends.

I’ve been looking at the Phnom Penh property market for years, but the biggest challenge is working with agents that are reliable, attentive, logical, and professional. I’ve been lucky to find those qualities in Desmond, Sreyleak, and their team. The search and purchase process was managed exceptionally well and I continue to be surprised by the team’s willingness to go the extra mile for me even after the transaction has closed. Without question, I will continue to do business with Yong Yap.

Working with Yong Yap was a great experience. The process was smooth from beginning to end with no hiccups. All the staff are very professional and go the extra mile. They know the area well and update their listings frequently. We were able to buy a property through them and they found us a tenant within days. Very efficient and effective. I highly recommend them and will continue using their services.

I enjoyed working with you guys, you are professionals, and this particular sale was complicated because of several reasons. You guys took the time and made the effort to get the job done. I would certainly recommend your company to others.

Having recently decided to move from Australia to Phnom Penh it was great to come across Yong Yap Properties. Desmond and his team asked all the right questions to find us the most suitable place in a very short amount of time. It also definitely helped that Desmond had also made the move from Australia-Cambodia and could help us not only with finding a great place, but was also extremely helpful in answering any questions we had about everyday living in Phnom Penh.
Couldn’t recommend Yong Yap highly enough!

Desmond and his team are true specialists of the riverside area, not only they know the neighborhood very well but they also get to find rare treasures the city hides.
There is no chance you will not find some apartment to rent or buy through them, just push the door, you will find a high standard service quality, professionals with the desire to save your time and money. Definitely recommend the whole team!

柬埔寨金边Yong Yap地產的Desmond先生是一位最具专业知识的经纪。他準確的眼光和指導協助我在購買物業上得到無價的支持。他們與本地業主擁有良好關係，因此能提供大量優質的物業. 旗下員工具有專業知識，而且能令參觀單位的過程中相當愉快，沒有像其他經紀一樣帶我去參觀我認為是浪費時間的單位! 他們提供優質售後服務，而這是其他大型地產公司所做不到的。

When I first came to Phnom Penh in 2014, Yong Yap was the first company I used and within 1 day, I had found a place to live through them. After being here over 6 months, I decided it was time to move and through Yong Yap I found my second apartment.
The service offered by Yong Yap both friendly and professional and they would bend over backwards to assist in all aspects relating to securing the apartment from negotiations to assisting with cable installation, providing information regarding the locality and places nearby to park ones motorbike overnight.
I was so impressed with their service that I have informed my staff members to use Yong Yap and on two occasions, they have found my work colleagues suitable accommodation, taking into account their requested desired location, price and quality of apartments.
If you want hassle free service and have an agent that is willing to go the extra mile for you then I certainly would recommend Yong Yap, Desmond and his team to you.

After moving to Phnom Penh and staying in a hotel for the first few days we were scouring the internet for suitable properties to rent. Yong Yap was recommended to me by a friend who had found his apartment through them, and when we visited the office we found Desmond and the team to be extremely warm, friendly and helpful from the moment we met.
They took time to assess our requirements and lined up viewings at a number of suitable properties the same day. These all fitted our requirements, but there was one we particularly loved which was slightly higher than our budget – Desmond was happy to assist us with negotiations with the landlords and we quickly came to an agreement.
Overall, we found the process to be completely straightforward and stress-free – our first contact with Yong Yap to getting the keys to our new apartment took only 3 days! Their handy tips guide for how to go about organizing your bills, internet etc is also very useful. We are very happy customers and would thoroughly recommend Desmond and the team at Yong Yap to anyone looking to buy or rent in Phnom Penh!

English couple recently re-located to Phnom Penh
I have been to Cambodia many times before but always stayed in hotels. As I am staying for six months this time I thought I would rent an apartment. A mutual friend recommended Yong Yap to me , a friend who had used your services before and was equally impressed.
I must confess to being a little apprehensive but I was impressed with the friendly atmosphere coming from all of you in the office. Sitting with Desmond first, I gave him my preferred location and price range and he drew up a list of at least eight properties that were available. We went through the list and with his advice we narrowed it down to three possibles. Desmond knew all of the properties very well and almost seemed to know exactly which ones would suit me the most.
It fell to you Dany and Srey Lek to show me around the three properties and you both showed a good understanding of my needs and were able to point out the advantages and disadvantages of each one. You both showed a quiet professionalism as you went about your task. In the end it was an easy choice for me.
I am indebted to you for the subsequent contract negotiations that you handled with the owner and I. You also accompanied the owner and I to the property where you ensured that the owner would carry out a few improvements to the property that I had requested. You have a lovely warm nature which no one can be offended at and your command of the English language is admirable and welcome. I think that Desmond is the most comfortable with English and Srey Lek is equally happy. All three of you put me at ease and took the stress out of renting the property.
I would certainly recommend yourselves to any one interested in any aspect of the property market and will have know hesitation in using yourselves again on my subsequent trips to Cambodia.
To put the above into context I did view another property with another estate agent . She combined my viewing of the property with another client and seemed to be promoting a race between ourselves as to who would accept it first. Not impressed and do not forget you took the time to advise me where I could get the best price on bed linen! That is good service!!
Many thanks to all three of you

I came to live in Phnom Penh as a single female in September 2014, when I arrived I had no idea of where I was going to live and where was the best location for myself. Yong Yap was recommended as being very helpful and friendly. I made contact with Desmond and his team, I cannot recommend them highly enough, not only did they help me find the perfect apartment; they are very professional and easy to deal with.
Srey Leak is a credit to the business, she is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
I have no hesitation in recommending Yong Yap and I have, two of my friends have used their services and are now happy in their own apartments.

We truly appreciate yep and his team.
