I have known Chandaka and Acquest for over five years. His advice and insights has been inviolable when making my real estate investment decisions.
Chandaka has deep insights into the Sri Lankan Real Estate market and his advice and services has been exceptionally customer oriented and always strategic. I have no hesitation in recommending Chandaka and Acquest for anyone interested in real estate investment in Sri Lanka.
I am very happy to recommend Acquest. They have been fantastic in their support for the full life cycle of my property purchase and maintenance in Sri Lanka. I first used them in 2009 to acquire a flat. They made sure the process was smooth and flawless. They helped with the fit-out work. Over the years their maintenance department has done a great job keep the apartment operating well.
Acquest has been working with me on my personal real estate portfolio for approximately eight years. The Acquest team has acted on my behalf to lease as well as to sell some of my apartments.
Their advice on market trends have been insightful and helped me make certain strategic decisions. Acquest has always acted with integrity and with a high level of professionalism. I continue to work closely with Acquest and have every confidence in their input and that they will work in my best interest. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Acquest.
In my 25 years of active real estate investing, few companies have demonstrated the same level of professionalism as Acquest. I purchased an executive property through them in 2008 and they managed it efficiently until 2014. Throughout this period, their level of service and responsiveness was excellent. I will continue to work with Acquest as I value their integrity and knowledge of the local market and see them as a reliable partner in Sri Lankan real estate. I would recommend their services without hesitation.
I engaged Acquest informally in an advisory capacity on a couple of potential development projects as well as more formally to execute the sale of a top-end penthouse apartment at the Emperor. My expectations of Acquest were to determine appropriate positioning of the property and target and attract a narrow list of suitable and high quality buyers, brief me on market trends and valuations, assess pricing feasibility and obtain best pricing for my property, provide honest and direct market and buyer feedback, market the property with discretion and integrity, assess the quality of potential buyers and to execute the closing process.`
Through the process, the Acquest team acted with honesty and integrity which is a rare commodity among real estate agents in Colombo. The team was also able to advise me well on market trends and pricing as well as the quality of potential buyers. Acquest operates to high standards and takes a long term view towards their client relationships. An open and frequent line of communication was maintained with me throughout the process. They ultimately delivered results for me. We were able to achieve higher than the expected price in an apartment category that is highly priced for this market, and based on accurate advice on the closing process I was also able to save some transaction costs.
I would recommend the services of Acquest with no reservations to any other prospective client whether it is for an individual property or a larger scale development.
Acquest, especially Chandaka, did an exceptional job in selling a large residential property in Colombo. Chandaka was always available to provide helpful market insight, valuable advice on potential buyers and the structuring of a transaction, and skillful and creative negotiation of the sale. I always felt that Acquest operated at the highest level of integrity and was proactive in finding a solution. I am very happy to recommend them.
Our Firm globally has experience in investing in Real Estate in USA, Europe, Middle East, India and parts of Asia in all types of real estate like land, apartments, commercial and retail space, hotels, etc. In Sri Lanka, for our apartment portfolio of 67 luxury units in Colombo, we have exclusively used the services of Acquest for advisory, purchase, leasing and management of these apartments since 2010.
Acquest has delivered exceptional professional services in the last ten years. The Acquest team brings an intimate understanding of the market and has the best deals in the market. Acquest has access to the best clients in Colombo and a unique trait of doing what is best for their clients, even at short term cost to their business. We have found Acquest to be competent, diligent, professional and above all bringing a rare integrity to this business.
We have used the services of Chandaka and his company, Acquest, since we began investing in Real Estate in Sri Lanka in 2010. We have developed a close relationship over that time and believe Chandaka to be highly knowledgeable, trustworthy and proactive in his real estate dealings with ourselves, and his team at Acquest to provide a consistently high level of service in managing and leasing our property portfolio in Colombo.
I have worked with Chandaka and the Acquest Team for over 10 years on multiple transactions. Their ability to accurately predict trends and provide advice based on data and experience has been impressive.
Looking after my interest has always been their priority. I get Chandaka's input before I make an investment decision and more often that not Chandaka advises me against real estate investments I want to make and he goes out of his way to give me detailed real estate market insights to make sure I have the information I need before I make a decision.
The professionalism, integrity and value that Chandaka and Team have demonstrated has resulted in a trusted adviser relationship that I cherish.
I take great pleasure in recommending Acquest as a full-service Real Estate Agency. They are easily the most professionally managed Real Estate Company in Sri Lanka, often possessing the best selection of properties in the country. I am also grateful to Chandaka for the extensive amount of time he has devoted personally to analyze my investment objectives and the innovative solutions he has presented backed by vast amounts of data and market research.
I have no doubt that his passion for this business and in-depth knowledge of both commercial and residential property markets in Sri Lanka will drive Acquest to even greater heights in the years to come. My very best wishes to Chandaka and the team at Acquest as they innovate and benchmark new standards and change the local Real Estate landscape in their journey to transform a very old and traditional business sector in Sri Lanka.
