Thailand is one of the most popular countries for overseas property buyers who want to have an income generator, a retreat to spend a couple of months a year or they’ve simply decided to settle down.

Even if Thailand offers a great quality of life and has attracted a huge amount of foreigners over the decades, it’s still developing and things are not as straightforward compared to developed countries. Therefore, a wise choice is to hire a property lawyer, before you transfer those hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars.

But it’s not that easy to find summarized information about local property lawyers. Therefore, I’ve written this article where I list some of the biggest and most reputable firms in Thailand.

Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the world and attracts many entrepreneurs, expats and digital nomads. Even if people claim that you can get better yields in places like Cambodia, it’s getting increasingly popular among foreigners to buy in Bangkok.

In fact, price appreciations are not always the most important, the feeling of owning a property, especially in a place like Bangkok, can be an amazing feeling. Not to neglect, some people can’t simply afford to buy back home. If you buy in the right area, the capital gain can be quite decent (more about that in this article).

However, it’s not always easy to know which real estate agency you should turn to for help. Finding a reputable and credible agent is crucial to successfully buy a property. Therefore, I decided to write this article where I’ve listed (in random order) some of the most reputable real estate agencies in Bangkok.

Let’s have a look.

1. Colliers International Thailand

Colliers is one of the biggest real estate agencies in the world with 400 offices in almost 70 countries, including Thailand. The head office is located in Bangkok and has a management team of 14 persons, mixed with both Thai nationals and foreigners.

Colliers International Thailand has managed a number of acquisitions of local real estate agencies, including Pasupat Realty Co. Ltd., in 2007 and FirstService in 2015.

Clients on the list include Bangkok Bank, Siam Commercial Bank, Siam Piwat and Singha. Saying that Colliers is one of the top real estate agencies in Thailand is not a bold statement.

Most properties up for listing are located in Bangkok, but you’ll be able to find a number of options in other cities as well.
