         Be confident that in Thailand, we are your trustworthy property consultants. This is because AREA is:

  • the first and only ISO 9001-2015 certified property consultants firm in Thailand,
  • the largest property information centre supported by modern computer technology and GIS,
  • the pioneer of computer-assisted Mass Appraisal (CAMA) techniques since 1990,
  • the centre of long-serving valuers and researchers who were internationally-trained at the LRTI-Lincoln Institute of Land Policy
  • the regional contact on ASEAN properties from around the world.
         We are highly disciplined people. We refrain from real estate brokerage and self-interest property development to avert a potential conflict of interest.
