What’s so unique about Freer Properties?

We provide quality `through personalised service. Our key values are quality, honesty and integrity; a fresh way of doing business in Cambodia. Our logo  colours represent freshness as a point of difference. Like Mohammed Ali, we are small, fast and accurate – “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee…”!

With growing numbers of agencies, what are your strategies to compete?

We’re not at the stage yet where we can compete with multi-national agencies. However, we do have systems, processes and a culture that, scaled up, will give us an edge. We practise QA and not profit alone which is a sustainable business practice. Good governance and eco-friendly strategies are two of our other core strengths.

We prefer to influence and cooperate with other, like agencies, than compete. The numerous sub-standard brokers that abound will ultimately be weeded out as the industry matures. It makes sense to work with other good companies than against them to ensure continued delivery of quality.

Why should property buyers or renters seek services from Freer Properties?

We focus on quality – listings, clients, information, photographs, fair and professional documentation – backed up with personalised service.

Why does Freer Properties focus on old colonial buildings?

Phnom Penh is one of the most delightful colonial cities in the world. Its wide tree-lined avenues, pretty gardens and stately homes made it ‘the Pearl of Asia’ in the 1920’s. It is an attractive style that separates Phnom Penh from many other cities. They are well-built, respect the tropics and offer unique urban spaces.

From a micro (building) level to macro (city) level, Colonial buildings are to be cherished and preserved.  With the old buildings gone, Phnom Penh will become a glass and concrete jungle, inseparable from most other urban centres. Freer Properties proudly associates itself with the preservation of such beauty.

Are there any services Freer Properties is planning to announce?

Freer Properties has shifted focus to rentals and sales only to apply our resources strategically. We will continue to promote quality properties across Phnom Penh and beyond. Our traditional focus had been on Daun Penh, but we widened our scope to other areas and provincial regions. As opportunities present themselves, we are likely to include other areas.

Purchases should be managed by escrow

Believe me… purchases over $100,000 should be managed via escrow. It means monies are secure until transaction completion. The fees are worth avoiding all the stress of a sale ‘go wrong’. I have that learnt the hard way!
